Thank you so much Runiche! I cannot express how grateful and delighted we are with the extraordinary cat sitting service provided by Runiche. She turned what could have been a stressful time away from our beloved cat Simba into an absolute delight. From the very beginning, Runiche showcased unparalleled professionalism and a genuine love for animals. Communication was seamless, with prompt responses to our inquiries and a comprehensive pre-sitting meeting that immediately put us at ease. Throughout our time away, Runiche went above and beyond. Her daily updates, accompanied by adorable pictures of Simba, not only reassured us but also made us feel like we were right there with him. The detailed feedback after each visit demonstrated Runiche's dedication to providing exceptional care. What sets Runiche apart is not just her reliability but also her passion for what she does. It's evident that she genuinely cares for the well-being and happiness of the pets under her care. Simba was not just looked after; he was showered with attention, affection, and even some playtime. Runiche's attention to detail is truly commendable. The litter box was immaculate, Simba's favorite spots were attended to, and she even took note of his preferences in terms of feeding and play. It's the little things that make all the difference, and Runiche excels at them. I wholeheartedly recommend Runiche to anyone seeking a cat sitter who goes above and beyond. Her dedication, reliability, and genuine love for animals make her the gold standard in pet care. We returned home to a happy and content Simba, and for that, we are forever grateful to Runiche. Thank you for making our time away stress-free and enjoyable!

We loved Natalia as a pet sitter who is very conscientious, loves animals truly and is super experienced, and is a lovely person as well. Very communicative: we had update of every single visit with pictures, and a little update on WhatsApp😊 definitely will be our main pet sitter! Both our dog and cat loved her immediately and felt comfortable from the start. Highly recommend Natalia !

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.
