About Us

Kristi

with Frankie
Cat Hotel Attendant

Kristi has had pets for as long as she can remember and has always known from a very young age that she would one day work with animals. After moving to Australia in 2012, she decided to pursue this dream while also experiencing the Australian outback, working in cattle stations and horse studs and then finding her true passion working with dogs and cats. Kristi is very passionate about low stress handling and making your pets feel safe and loved.

Nick

with Bella
Cat Hotel Attendant

Nick has worked with Balmain Veterinary Hospital as an Animal Attendant for the past two years, predominately within Balmain Cat Boarding. An animal lover since birth, Nick has two Border Collies Red and Nelson, who swoon at his feet and listen attentively whenever he speaks. He trained each dog and the locals all comment on how well behaved they are.

    Nick has been working since he left Glebe High (now Blackwattle Campus), 23 years ago. He's also a long time Inner Westie and known to many for his entertaining personality and his love of life. Never shy to comment, Nick has a very vocal relationship with the cats boarding at the hospital and often reports on his "interesting" conversations.

    Nick loves working with the cats in our boarding facility. Nick thinks cats are very entertaining and loves playing with the all the boisterous cats with string toys. All our cats love to run up and say hello to Nick – which he loves when they rub against his legs and give him head-butts.

    Nick loves working with the team at Balmain Vet and is a social butterfly around our halls. The vet hospital is Nick's dream job, though he still harbours ambitions of working with the wilder animals found in Africa where he has been on safari on two occasions.

Isabel

Cat Hotel Attendant
For as long as Isabel can remember she has always loved and cared for animals. Though she didn't like to have preferences, she has a soft spot for cats and pigeons. Working alongside animals, especially cats, is truly a dream come true.
 
She has been heavily involved in animal rights activism over the past three years, volunteering for numerous organisations and sanctuaries. This is something she sees herself doing for the rest of her life.
 
When she is not doing something that involves animals, she is more often than not reading a book, watching comedy shows or hanging (sometimes literally when she goes bouldering!) out with her loved ones.

Chloe

Cat Hotel Attendant
Chloe’s lifelong love of animals great and small led her to move to Sydney in 2018 to study Animal and Veterinary Bioscience and Animal Production at the University of Sydney. Chloe is passionate about animal behaviour and welfare which led her to complete her honours research in the final year of her degree. She is also interested in animal education and hopes to pursue a veterinary medicine degree in the future. 

When she isn’t studying, Chloe enjoys a good book, the beach or FaceTiming her beloved cats and dogs back home. But FaceTime is definitely not the same as cuddle, which is why she is so excited to be able to cuddle and care for your cats during their stay with us.

Sheridan

Cat Hotel Attendant

Sheridan grew up on a dairy farm in the rural Victorian town of Gunbower. From a young age, she always had a strong affinity for animals and loved spending any extra time she had helping her parents out on the farm. She completed her Bachelor of Science followed by her Honour’s thesis at The University of Melbourne. Her honours research focused on Feline Welfare within shelter environments, working with both the Animal Welfare Science Centre and RSPCA Victoria. Having completed this research, as well as volunteering at several animal shelters, she is passionate about feline health and welfare.

At the start of 2021 Sheridan made the move to Sydney to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a Vet! She is now in the second year of her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and hopes to work in either mixed practice or dairy medicine in the future.
