Fantastic cat sitter service from Jolene. If you need a cat sitter to take care of your fur babies, service is unbeatable. She really knows and understand cats and their behaviour. We have 2 cats and both of them warmed to her very easily. One of our cat is very anxious and skittish around strangers so Jolene had to work with him but she handled it exceptionally well. We feed our cats very specific diet that is mix of specific portion of wet food and dry food, Jolene followed the strict diet exactly to our specifications. One of the great things about Jolene is communication, she would send us our cat photos and videos at every visit so that we could see with our own eyes how well they were doing. We highly recommend her and will be hiring her again. Thank you, Jolene for taking care of Pepper and Misty. We are really grateful. Thanks Jerry

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.
