Cat Sitting Brisbane

Brisbane loves its cats. Whether you live in an inner-city hub like Teneriffe, New Farm, or Hamilton, or live further afield in Wynnum, Birkdale, or Cleveland, you will find cats wherever you go. If you’re one of Brisbane’s many Cat Owners, you’ll want the very best for your cat. That’s why, if you’re taking a holiday, it’s important for you to know your cat is in safe hands. Whether you’re travelling overseas, taking a business trip to the Gold Coast, or spending a weekend in Cairns, Mad Paws will have a Cat Sitter for you. Thanks to Mad Paws’ Cat Sitting Brisbane services, you can now travel with peace of mind.

Mad Paws provides the perfect option for cat caring when you’re away. The days of needing to put your kitty into an expensive cat hotel or cattery are over. Instead, Mad Paws can connect you with a local, trusted Pet Sitter who will mind your cat in your home. By keeping your kitty in a familiar environment, you can avoid the stress that comes from moving them to a strange place. As an added extra, you’ll also be recruiting a house sitter at the same time!

Our Pet Sitters are trained in our Pet Sitter Success course, vetted by our team at Mad Paws HQ, and covered by Mad Paws Accident Cover. They are also crazy about cats, and will love your furry friend as much as you do.

You have the chance to meet your Sitter before making your booking, so you can be confident you trust them with your home and your pet. They’ll also send you regular photos, so you’ll know your cat is having a great time while you’re away.

Your cat should be treated like a monarch – and we think so too. Our Brisbane-based Cat Sitters are the best at what they do, and are ready when you need them.

  1. What other services does Mad Paws offer?

Unlike traditional Pet Minding services such as kennels and veterinary clinics, we offer a wide and unique range of services. This tailored approach will engage your pet and make them feel as loved and happy as they do at home. The services available through Mad Paws are:

  • Pet Sitting– Overnight pet care in the pet’s home. The Pet Sitter can House Sit and Pet Sit at the same time.
  • Pet Hosting– Overnight care at the Sitter’s home. This is where your pet goes and stay’s at the Pet Sitter’s abode.
  • Doggy Day Care– Daytime care for your pet. This can occur either in the pet’s home or the Pet Sitter’s home.
  • Dog Walking– A Pet Sitter comes to your home and walk your dog for you. The length of these Dog Walks are flexible depending on the needs of your pet.
  • House Visits – A Pet Sitter comes to your home once or twice a day to check on your pet/s and feed them. They can also spend an hour or two with your pet/s as you require.
  • Pet Grooming – Done either at your or the Pet Sitter’s home, a pet expert grooms and beautifies your furry friend.
  • Dog Training – A Dog Trainer works with your pooch to hone their skills and address any behavioural issues. Like other services, this can be done either at your or the Pet Sitter’s home.


Service rates will vary in price depending on the age and size of the pet, the number of pets, and the length of the stay. Make sure you read all the information on the Sitter’s profile before making a booking. We also strongly recommend completing a Meet & Greet; it will allow you to discuss the details of the booking as well as meet the Pet Sitter prior to the booking.
