Katie has been my neighbour for six months and from the word go she helped me out with my lovely cat Smokey.
I am in and out a lot due to work commitments so Katie offered to check in on Smokey and feed him when I wasn't around. I had a set of keys made for her and she has been absolutely amazing. She not only feeds Smokey, but also lets him in and out of the flat, gives him cuddles, buys him treats and generally looks after him so kindly that I don't have to worry when I can't make it home.
She is a lovely lady and has such a natural affinity to bond with animals that I would recommend her to anybody!
Katie looked after Leo my kitten for a weekend whilst I was away in London.
I gave her the keys and she visited twice a day to feed, love and play with him. It was such a relief to not have to worry. Katie kept me updated about how Leo was doing which made me feel reassured he was being looked after in the best way.
Katie has a unique caring nature and is passionate about animals and animal welfare. I was really pleased with everything she did and I would definitely recommend her if you need someone to take care of your whilst your away.
Katie is the perfect person for this line of work. Ever since my dog was one month old, she took care of her for two days of every week and also for the entire week when I went on holiday.
During this time Katie realised my dog was not well and took her to the vets without batting an eyelid, she took care of Hope as if she were her own. When I left Hope with Katie I could be sure she is being cared for as if she was at home.
My dog loves Katie like another mother and misses her terribly. I recommend Katie a thousand times over, I could not think of a better person. I only wish she could have moved back to Spain with us!
I have been friends with Katie for a number of years, she has always been a reliable friend who has a great love for all animals.
On a number of occasions she has looked after my cat Mylo when I have been away for holidays or weekends. Last summer, Katie collected my house keys, she already knew Mylo and had taken to time build a bond with him. She came to my flat 3 times a day, fed him, had cuddles, and let him in and out of the flat.
I came home to a very happy content cat and a nice tidy place, she'd also opened and closed the curtains etc. Which puts your mind at ease when your away that there is someone checking on your home.
I would use Katie to look after Mylo everytime and highly recommend her to any animal owner that their pet will be in safe caring hands.
Katie has walked Alfie since he was 4 months old. She is absolutely wonderful with him and I have never seen him as excited as when he sees Katie arrived.
I genuinely do not know what we would do without her. She is incredibly reliable and very flexible with times she walks Alfie as we work erratic shifts. I cannot recommend Katie and Hot Dog n Cool Cats highly enough.

We feel so lucky to have found Katie and can’t imagine life without her! She looks after Elle as if she was her own and we have total confidence that every aspect of her welfare is being looked after when she is with Katie.
She is totally reliable and organised and does everything to the highest standard. Elle tries to scrape a hole under the door every time she spies her from the window in her rush to greet Katie which has to be the best reference!

Katie (aka "Aunty Katie") has been our dog minder since Tilly was 4 months old. I trust Katie 100% with the keys to my flat & always know I can relax when Tilly & Django are in the care of Katie.
The home boarding service that Katie offers is great when I am traveling aboard. While I am abroad Katie sends me pics & videos, so it feels like my fur babies is never actually too far away from me.
I highly recommend Hot Dogs n Cool Cats as Katie truly has a passion for all animals.
