By far he best cat sitter I’ve ever had on Pawshake! Cat visits Claudia stayed much longer than the standard half hour which is so nice. My cats are used to a lot of company, so knowing she was with them for longer periods put my mind at ease. Her vibe with the cats was great too. So much that even my shy cat came out of his shell, and started to trust her. My playful cat got tons of play sessions and attention just the way he liked it. I think he even misses her now that the visits are over Communication Loved the vibe I got so many fun videos and photos, it was really cool to get funny updates throughout her visits of what they were up to Claudia was also really clear in her communication all round Above and beyond 🥵 Claudia was proactive about the heat wave that started while I was away, and strategised with me what would be best to keep the cats cool 🌱 She also offered to water my plants (which saved them from certain death in this weather) 🧼 She also hoovered the flat every day. I know how much hair my cats lose when it gets this hot, and it was so nice to come home from vacation to a clean appartment If I’m out of town in the future, I’m hoping Claudia is available, given the great experience both the cats and I had!

Marcela is a great and caring cat sitter. She took care of our 3 cats with a lot of love and attention for their specific needs. At the same time she is very concerned about keeping the house clean. She is very open and kept us informed the whole time. She is punctual and proactive, and knows what both our cats and we need for a relaxing holiday. We would definitively recommend her if you are looking for a pet sitter!

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.
