I am absolutely thrilled with the outstanding cat-sitting services provided by Anna! From the moment I entrusted our fur babies into Anna's care, I knew I had made the right choice. Here are just a few reasons why I can't sing their praises enough: 1. Reliable and Responsible: Anna consistently showed up every day to feed our cats and help with the litter. 2. Genuine Love for Cats: Anna is a true cat lover. Fluffy, my cat, let Anna touch her, which is something she is not keen on. 3. Communication: I never had to worry about my cats while I was away. Anna kept me updated with daily messages and photos, which provided me with great peace of mind. Even though Luna did not show up for the entire time, it was reassuring to see our cats having food under Anna's care. 4. Clean and Tidy: My garage was left in good condition. The litter boxes were kept clean, and there was no trace of any mess. It was clear that Anna takes pride in maintaining a clean and tidy environment for the cats. 6. Trustworthy: Trust is paramount when it comes to pet care, and I had complete trust in Anna. I knew she genuinely cared for my cats' well-being and safety. 7. Affordable: The rates for Anna's services were very reasonable, especially considering the level of care and attention provided. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the exceptional cat-sitting services provided by Anna. They made my time away worry-free and ensured that my cats were not only well taken care of. I highly recommend Anna to anyone in need of a reliable and caring cat sitter. Thank you Anna for taking such excellent care of our beloved cats!

I had the pleasure of hiring Antonio as a cat sitter recently, and I must say that my experience was nothing short of exceptional. One aspect that truly set Antonio apart was his attentiveness. He went above and beyond to keep me updated on my cat's well-being during my absence. Regular text messages, photos, and even videos were sent to reassure me that my feline companion was happy and content. It warmed my heart to see the genuine bond they had formed with my cat, providing comfort and companionship while I was away. Moreover, their professionalism was commendable. They respected my home, ensuring cleanliness and security. They followed all instructions meticulously, including any specific dietary requirements or medications. It was evident that they approached their job with the utmost dedication and professionalism. In conclusion, I cannot recommend this cat sitter enough. Their exceptional care, reliability, attentiveness, and professionalism make them a true gem in the world of pet sitters. If you're searching for someone who will treat your feline friend like family, this cat sitter is the one to choose. I am grateful for their outstanding service and will undoubtedly be using their services again in the future. Thank you for taking such wonderful care of my beloved cat!

Frequently asked questions

Your pet sitting questions answered

What does pet sitting include?

Who will be caring for my pet during the pet sitting booking?

Pawshake only accepts pet and dog sitters who have experience and/or qualifications caring for pets. You can search, choose and have a free meet and greet with your pet sitter or dog minder prior to making a booking.

Is pet sitting the right option for my pet?

Pet sitting is the perfect option for pets who prefer staying in their own home environment and would like some company during the day. This means your pet gets to enjoy high quality and personalised care that is better than pet hotels.

What is the difference between pet sitting and pet hotels?

Pet sitting is a personalised service where a pet sitter visits your home and spends one on one time with your pet. Pet hotels can be stressful and usually involve your pet sharing their space with other pets and interacting with different staff members each time.
