I had an incredible experience with Nur as our cat sitter. As a first timer engaging catsitting services, we were anxious and worried to leave our cats in the hands of a stranger but Nur proved to be trustworthy, responsible and dedicated in ensuring we have a peace of mind while we were away on holiday. Nur came over to meet us and our cats Aura and Yanelle before we decided to book her services, to familiarise with our cats, home settings and the needs of our fur babies. While explaining to her their feeding times, habits, behaviour and litter clearing, Nur diligently took down notes to ensure our instructions were clear and well taken note of. She was also meticulous about ensuring the safety of our home - which doors to lock, windows to close/open, which lights and fans to leave switched on/off. As our cats are both litter and toilet-trained, Nur had no qualms clearing their litter in the litter tray and also the toilet, ensuring the areas are always clean and our cats are in clean and comfortable living condition. She went above and beyond during our 6-day vacation, providing dedicated care to our cats Aura and Yanelle. Nur not only ensured their basic needs were met but took the time to bond with them, which is no easy feat with our cats as they usually take time to warm up to strangers and would hide in every cornernl they could find. It's astonishing how quickly Aura and Yanelle connected with Nur, just within her second and third day here. Nur even stayed to play with them, givig them rubs and stimulating them through play time with their toys provided. In a short time, our furbabies were already sitting and playing on her lap. That shows how much they love her! Nur's commitment to their well-being extended beyond feeding and cleaning; she genuinely cared about their comfort. We returned home to a spotless house, and our cats looked not just content but genuinely well-taken care of. I appreciate Nur's extra effort, spending more than half an hour during each visit. Every visit comes with photos and videos updates of our cats, twice a day, and we were kept updated all the time. I'm eternally grateful for her fantastic service and highly recommend her for anyone seeking a reliable and caring cat sitter. Definitely highly recommended, Nur is a true animal lover!

It’s my first time leaving my 3 furbabies to the pet sitter. To be honest, I got the worrying thoughts about “what if” in my head all the times; but I realised that I’ve been overthinking about leaving the cats to the pet sitter when I’m on vacation. And yes, I’m referring to Ghizlan and would recommend to anyone who is looking for reliable and kind person to care for their pets.  I absolutely trust her with my 3 cats during my 5 days vacation.  She sent daily updates and pictures about the cats well-being. I have a peace of mind knowing that they are in good hands. It’s a joy to see my cats holds their tail high in the air (signal of happiness) when Ghizlan walked into the door. Ghizlan is a very nice person and very good at what she does. You will not be disappointed with her service! Thank you Ghizlan🥰I will reach out to you again for my next vacation.

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.
