Talita has been absolutely AMAZING with our young cat Banou. From the very start, she took time to visit us at the house before the start of the cat-sitting period to familiarise herself with the cat and the house. She was extremely conscientious (checked if Banou was drinking enough, even got her mineral water). She sent pictures twice a day diligently, and videos too. She kept us updated so regularly it felt like we had not left. We were gone for 2 weeks (the longest we had ever been away from the cat) and we never had to worry once. Not only was our cat cuddled, she was brushed, eyes cleaned, and they played every day. We had another cat sitter before, and Talita's services just don't compare - 5 stars across the board! We could not be happier and will definitely be contacting Talita again when we need to leave for a few days.

Such a nice couple! Absolutely trustworthy and the communication was excellent. I have been using different pet sitter services for a while now, and this was the first time someone actually spent time with my cat while I was away, playing and letting her out a bit beside taking care of the necessities. I would 100% recommend and would book again!

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.
