I had to leave town for a week and had the pleasure of having a pet sitter take care of my three beloved cats while I was away for over a week. Her name is Tanya and she was absolutely incredible! She arrived promptly on time each day and prepared plenty of food and water. Tanya agreed to take care of my cats at my house and take care of things while I was away. I knew that I could trust her. She also helped with four tropical plants that require a lot of attention. For those in the same situation I was in, I would encourage you to consider Tanya as your pet sitter.

Mirielle is an exceptional cat-sitter, on so many levels! Our 2 cats had never been left alone for any length of time. As such, we needed a cat-sitter who not only loved but *understood* cats to take care of them. Mirielle's love and understanding of cats was evident from the very beginning. She was also very reliable and trustworthy, and was a pleasure to talk to and work with. She visited our home twice per day and took care of all of our cats needs, including going 'above-and-beyond' to interact with them and make sure they were OK. She also sent us updates after every visit, along with frequent pictures to keep our mind at ease. The peace of mind we enjoyed from having Mirielle look after our cats was priceless. I highly recommend Mirielle to any North Shore cat owners who are looking for an experienced, knowledgeable, and trustworthy fellow cat-lover to look after their cats while they are away!

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.
