Fabricio is an amazing cat sitter! Do not hesitate to book him as he is very caring, playful with the cats, responsible, and communicative. He has two cats of his own, therefore he intuitively knows what to do, and how to cater to your pet's individual needs. He watched over our cat for an extended period (one month!). This was a first for our cat. All worries/concerns disappeared the minute Fabricio stepped in. Our two kids particularly enjoyed the entertaining daily cat pics! - Okay, I admit that I did! We returned back home to reunite with a healthy, interactive pet who didn't appear to miss us much because he had such a great sitter. Thank you so much Fabricio! This family is very grateful for your 5-star service. I highly recommend his sitter for all of your cat sitting needs. Go ahead and book "Absolute Fab" Fabricio. You won't regret it.

Eleni and Ruben are fantastic are not only amazing pet sitters, but also very kind people. They took care of our cat for 3 weeks and provided regular updates via text and videos. Even though we were in a completely different continent, we knew that our cat (Femto) was in good hands and in the care of two people who genuinely love animals. Femto himself loved hanging out with them and was happy to hang out with his new people :) Both Eleni and Ruben took time to take care of our cat and responded promptly to any concerns we had. Would highly recommend to everyone, especially those looking for the first time for a pet sitter. They both helped us relieve a lot of the anxiety we felt leaving our pet alone for a long period of time. Thank you again for everything...You guys are the best!!

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.
