I cannot recommend Emily highly enough! My cats are the most precious thing in the world to me and leaving them with a cat sitter is always a bit of a worry, but I would now never hesitate to ask Emily to look after them! It’s clear that she is a cat lover herself and that really showed in her care and attention. She didn’t just feed the cats, but actually spent time with them and made sure that they were happy and content each day. She also provided us with pictures and updates, which was much appreciated. One of our cats requires medication twice a day and Emily had absolutely no problem administering this. She really was the most perfect cat sitter that we could have wished for. If you need a cat sitter, do not hesitate to book her!

We hired Janelle to look after our two precious cats from 7th to 9th March 2024. She took the best care of our cats, precisely following our directions and recommendations. She proved to be very trustworthy and reliable, which put my partner and myself at ease during our absence. Communication with Janelle was fluid, with an update accompanied by photos or videos of our two cats being sent over to us after each visit. It was evident from the videos and photos she sent us that our two cats were exceptionally comfortable in her presence. One of our cats is very fearful by nature and had never felt as comfortable around a pet sitter as she felt around Janelle, approaching her, playing with her and smelling her fingers. I very happily recommend Janelle to anyone looking for a pet sitter, and would definitely contact her again with future pet sitting opportunities.

Frequently asked questions

Your pet sitting questions answered

What does pet sitting include?

When you book our pet sitting services, an experienced pet sitter will visit your home and spend some one-on-one time with your pet.

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.
