About Natalie

Hello friends!

I'm a freelance journalist based in Dublin, who also does the odd bit of tour guiding.

A bit about my background: I grew up on a farm in the rural village of Inistioge, co. Kilkenny. We had (and still have) all kinds of animals; terriers, sheepdogs, rescue cats, donkeys, horses, ewes, a goat, doves and a rabbit. My mum also runs a donkey sanctuary in tandem with the farm, so animals of all shapes and sizes are an integral part of my life.

In Dublin, I now have my own cat-baby called Seven. She's the beautiful grey rescue from my pictures. As my own girl is quite skittish, I'm well used to handling cats with that type of temperament. I have experience with birds (cockatiel and budgie) and I'm also very experienced with dogs of any size and personality - be it timid, reactive, hyper, and so on.

I am very laid back in terms of my schedule and can work to whatever routine you already have set up with your pet. Feel free to message me with any questions and I'd be more than happy to chat. Hope to meet you and your pet soon!

    Natalie did a wonderful job minding our two birds while we were away. She pays close attention to instructions, has fantastic communication, and clearly loves to be around animals. We felt completely at ease knowing she was checking in on them and I wouldn't hesitate to contact her again the next time we need a petsitter!

    Natalie was absolutely fantastic yesterday with Olive. She kept me fully updated throughout the day and Olive was totally at ease with her. I couldn’t recommend her more!
