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.

Isabel

After graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Life Sciences in Manila, Isabel decided to pursue veterinary medicine at the University of Sydney. Having grown up surrounded by all types of animals, Isabel is passionate about their care and happiness.

    When she’s not studying, Isabel loves spending her free time reading a good book and cuddling with her pet rat or FaceTiming her many chihuahuas back home. One day she hopes to be able to practice surgery on small animals and horses, but for now, she provides the cats in boarding with lots of cuddles and treats!

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.

    Looking to gain more experience (and in desperate need of some cat cuddles), she started working in Balmain Cat Boarding where she now enjoys caring for all sorts of cats! Stephanie has a toy poodle, Brownie, back in Hong Kong who she often video calls with. Outside of work and study, she likes to spend her free time with family and friends, cooking and watching movies.

Alex

Cat Hotel Attendant
Having been fascinated with animals since she was young, Alex always knew that she would one day pursue a career in caring for animals. Growing up, Alex couldn’t have any pets, though she made up for this by looking after a stray cat that liked to hang around the backyard, who quickly became part of the family. Alex’s care for all kinds of animals shines through her love for pigeons, and she often volunteers to rescue and rehabilitate injured or sick pigeons before finding them a loving forever home! In her late teens, Alex finally was able to get her own pets – four chickens and six pigeons, a few of which are her own rescues.

    Completing high school and eager to gain experience in working with animals in an animal care setting, Alex was very excited to join the team at Balmain Cat Boarding, where she now enjoys caring for the many different cats and pampering them with lots of love! In her spare time, Alex enjoys drawing, spending time with her birds and caring for her current rescues.
