I am an established, reliable, and dedicated sitter on Pawshake for approximately 2 years (please see my reviews, Pawshake hasn’t been accurately displaying my new or repeat clients unfortunately).
For everyone’s safety I am triple-vaccinated and follow all COVID protocols. I sit for: cats, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and can do most rodents and birds :) (I don’t know enough about dogs to sit for them, sorry!)
Let me start by saying I already love your cat! Lol I am an animal & plant lover, but cats are very special to me (I’m pretty sure I was a cat in a past life or something lol). I have 3 of my own cats (plus geckos, fish, and a small jungle of plants), and love cat sitting because I get to hang out with even more cats!!! Haha My goal is to provide fun, interactive, and stress reducing visits for your bebes while you’re away so you can have a good trip with lots of updates and no worries :)
I specialize in cats who benefit from extra attention: whether it’s because they are very social and love cuddles/playtime, or if they are anxious/fearful and need that extra care & attention to reduce their stress, I do 1-hour visits (unlike “drop-in” services that are only about 15-30 minutes). This gives me time to make sure everything is changed/cleaned, topped up, AND that your cat gets lots of play time & attention! This is important for them and helps them feel less stressed while they miss you, and ensures they are still getting interactive and stimulating activity while you’re away.
You will find that my pet sitting service always goes above and beyond, and your cat(s) will be very well taken care of. I have dozens of positive Pawshake reviews spanning approximately 2 years, and you can check out some of the other cats I’ve sat for, as well as my own, on my Facebook and Instagram pages, Indoor Wild CA :)
I am thorough and very familiar with cat behaviour and body language. My specialties include anxious, fearful, and complex-needs cats, as well as different diets requirements for multiple cats in one household, so please don’t worry if your fur baby is “a bit extra,” needs medication during cat-sits, or you have multiple cats who eat different foods. I am experienced in giving oral medication (pills and liquids), taking blood sugar readings, and giving sub-dermal injections (including insulin).
I am thorough, considerate, cooperative, responsible, reliable, dedicated, friendly, fair, and pet-welfare-centred!

*visits are approximately 60 minutes

Please note that Pawshake app doesn’t let me set multiple fee options, or change fees after an initial inquiry without making a whole new one, but please let me know what you need (or if you need a custom rate not listed here) and I’ll walk you through it! :)

Very happy with Alice’s work while she was watching our old girl. Lots of communication and I think the cat loved her visits. Alice managed to squeeze us in on very short notice which was very much appreciated.
Love this girl! Best pet sitter you could ask for, hands down. She goes above and beyond and you always know your babies are in excellent care! 😊
