About Cat Kingdom

Cat Boarding service in the Sutherland Shire

A little about myself, being an animal lover and having them almost my whole life, I knew a career with them was what I wanted.

Life long cat lover

I have had cats or been surrounded by cats my whole life. My career began as I started volunteer work with a renowned 24hr specialist hospital when I was in my final year of high school. I was soon offered a job as an animal attendant.

Qualified nurse

Shortly after, while continuing with this position, I enrolled into veterinary nursing certificate III and IV which I studied over the course of 2 years. I soon took an interest in ICU/emergency nursing where I have continued in this role for over 15 years, working in 3 well known 24hr specialist hospitals; The Animal Referral Hospital, SASH and Sydney University.

Dedicated animal lover

I still currently work casual shifts as an after hours emergency nurse but have decided to take my passion for animals, especially cats, in a different direction. Establishing Cat Kingdom is a dream job, being surrounded by these gorgeous creatures. What more could a cat lover want!
