The only Kat your Dog will Absolutely love is Kat! Kat has watched our mini Dachshund Olly for the last two days so we could tour around Edinburgh. Kat sent us photos of Olly enjoying his day, her messages and Ollys joy at seeing her each day made us feel we left our baby in the right caring and loving hands. She is a fantastic communicator and will love your pet likely just like you would. If I lived here she would be my go to pet sitter. If she is available to watch your pet I would grab her. Kat also did a beautiful drawing of Olly that had my wife in tears."
