If you are looking for a pet sitter or dog walker, look no further! Leslie & Cat are two of the kindest, most compassionate humans, and they took the best possible care of our two cats while we were away for 8 days. We have used a handful of cat sitters before, but Leslie & Cat’s professionalism, communication and level of care were above and beyond all others. We have never felt so comfortable or trusting as we did when relying on Leslie & Cat to come by our home daily. Our cats (especially our shy Ollie) bonded with them right away and looked forward to their visits - this was clear from their expressions in all of the photos that Leslie sent each day. We rate them 11/10 and are so grateful to have finally found a trusted cat sitter.

Anna is an incredible pet sitter! She cared for my 2 cats when I was away for a few days around Christmas. She sent lots of updates and even decorated a photo of my cats for the holidays and sent it to me. I was beyond satisfied with Anna’s care of my cats. When I got the picture of them decorated for Christmas I showed my whole family and they were shocked to see how she would go above and beyond to make me feel like even they were having a great holiday. Will definitely hire Anna again! she is extremely detail oriented and knows animals really well. On the first visit they had both taken to sitting on her lap at the same time! That is incredible considering my one cat is very timid. I could go on and on but really, if you are looking for a cat or pet sitter- LOOK NO FURTHER, ANNA IS HERE!

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.
