Clara - Trusted Cat Sitter

“I had a great experience with Clara from the beginning. Great communication and she sent me photos every day while I was away. My cat returned happy and calm, I would definitely take my cat back to Clara knowing that she will look after her. Thanks again, I had a great holiday without worrying!” – Valeria, Potts Point NSW

Airr - Trusted Cat Sitter

“Airr looked after our kitten and adult cat while we were away over the weekend. She was friendly and professional when we met and sent through some great photos of our furbabies while I was gone. The litter trays etc were all left very tidy and clean when I came home. Most importantly, she managed to get our very timid young kitten to front up some cuddles and it looked like they had some good play time, so she obviously worked some magic while visiting. I would comfortably hire Airr again the next time we’re away!” – Jessica, Stanmore NSW

Caitlin - Trusted Cat Sitter

“I can’t recommend Caitlin highly enough!!! Caitlin’s daily updates and photos were fantastic and really helped me to enjoy my holiday not worrying so much about Kona and Lucy. Thanks so much Caitlin for taking such good care of them and for keeping me updated – the whole process was so easy!!!” – Steph, Breakfast Point NSW

Cat Sitting Sydney

Sydney is a cat’s kind of city. Whether you have a city-slicking kitty in a Surry Hills apartment, or a garden-prowling jungle cat in Summer Hill, you’re part of feline-loving phenomenon that spans from Coogee Beach to Emu Plains. When you leave Sydney for a business trip, overseas holiday, or weekend in the Hunter Valley, it can be easy to worry about your kitty. Thanks to Mad Paws’ Cat Sitting Sydney services, those worries can now be a thing of the past.

Mad Paws provides the ideal option for minding your cat when you’re away. No longer do you need to spend a fortune to put your furry friend in a cattery or cat hotel. Instead, Mad Paws can connect you with a vetted Pet Sitter who will care for your kitty in your home. Changes in environment can be stressful for your cat, and through Mad Paws, they will be pampered in familiar surroundings. As an added bonus, you also have someone who can mind your house at the same time!

Our Cat Sitters are trained in our Pet Sitter Success course, which equips them to treat your cat like royalty. They’re also covered by our Mad Paws Accident Cover, and are vetted by our team at Mad Paws HQ. Finally, our Pet Sitters are crazy about cats, and will love your kitty as much as you do.

Before you finalise your booking, you’ll have the opportunity to meet your Sitter. This means you can be sure they’re the right person to care for your cat and home. They’ll also send you regular updates, so you’ll know your cat is in safe hands while you’re away.

Your cat deserves the best – and we think so too. From the Eastern Suburbs to the Hills District, from Sutherland Shire to the North Shore, Mad Paws has the very best Cat Sitting options for you.

  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.
