I'm very-very happy with Shontelle looking after our beloved cat while we've been away for a week. Never came across with a better cat sitter before. Our cat is very shy and very cautions to strangers but she won his trust pretty quickly, absolutely spot on communications with photos and videos so we were sure our cat is happy and we could relax and enjoy our trip. Shontelle does spend her time with your pet to make sure he gets his daily lot of pets and cuddles. And she is just simply an absolutely lovely person and a reliable pet sitter. Will definitely go back to her when I need a cat sitter again. Thank you Shontelle so much, you’re a star!! :0)

If you have just found Brittany on this site, then look no further... you have discovered the perfect pet minding outcome for your pet for sure! Brittany has been simply superb - extremely happy clients and very lucky pet Puss. Brittany made home visits to care for an old feline while we were away. Her reply on Pawshake was prompt, so reassured and relaxed following our meet and greet, with the most reliable friendly professional home visit service you could wish for, plus fun photos and updates while away, and Brittany has the perfect background and qualifications as bonus. We would love to continue booking with you Brittany as our pet carer Angel for sure!
