I am Katja, I am a German national and moved to Perth, WA​ over a decade ago. I brought with me my experience with all creatures great and small from birds to cats, dogs, a business of ferrets, horses, diverse rodents, some reptiles, squirrels and even a racoon. I am specialised in rehabilitation for agile, inactive or older pets as I am a Canine & Equine Massage Therapist and Rehabilitation Practitioner certified by the German Association for Animal-Naturopathy & -Physiotherapy (DGT reg. Assoc.) and member of the National Working Group of German Animal Physiotherapists (AFT - Gbr). I made my passion my job and don't own any pets myself - so I can be fully dedicated to your furbabies without being distracted by family commitments.

I assist Katya's ANIWELL 24/7 Perth Pet Sitters as an independent Pet Sitter and Dog Walker.


I've had dogs, cats, birds and fish for more than twenty years. They've been great companions and I truly appreciated them with their unconditional love and wonderful characters that they are. In recent years I've been caring for dogs and cats while the owners were away on holidays. My role was to follow the feeding schedules, taking them for their walks and sometimes keeping the pets company in their home, according to the owner's wishes. Other caring duties were, brushing their furs to prevent furballs, bathing them - especially with dogs, cleaning litter trays, wiping floors for any incidental messes, administering some medications like worming tablets, putting flea drops on the pet's skin, and giving other medicines that were prescribed.

 

Additionally, I looked after cockatiels, budgerigars, finches and parrots which I would feed and water and give them some space outside their cages with the permission of the owners. 

 

I've also clipped their wings and nails. I've handled some blue tongue lizards and non-venomous snakes. Aquatic fish like Siamese fighting fish, goldfish and others. I've fed them and cleaned their water bowls or water tanks. Making sure they stay healthy and happy.

 

I  hold a certificate in 'Alexander Technique', which I am currently working on to adapt for the use on animals.

 

I am a mother of a grown-up son and familiar with the responsibilities that come with caregiving and house-keeping duties. I don't smoke!

As a long-term friend of Katja, I support Katya's ANIWELL 24/7 Perth Pet Sitters as a Back-up Sitter in case the team is prevented by unforeseen circumstances from attending a Dog/Pet-Sitting or Walking.

 

Being an Australian by descent, living and working as a machine-engineer in Germany provided me with the highest standard in work-ethics, precision, tidiness and diligence in care and attention. 

I'm patient, considerate and responsible in the handling and caring for your animal friends and a reliable, trustworthy, neat and tidy house-sitter.

I looked after a menagerie of dogs, cats, ferrets, birds and diverse rodents during the past 25 years and we took in a variety of our friend's and family's pets regularly when they were on vacation.

I cared for sick dogs and pets and know how to handle midnight emergencies or how to administer prescribed medications well from my own experience. Even grumpy or anxious dogs and cats have usually no problem with me and become affectionate quickly.

 

I am flexible as I work from home and can attend a Pet-Sitting or fill in as a Back-up on short notice. I am a non-smoker!
