Service Description
Dear Pets, trust you have shown to your Mums your unconditional love during Mother's Day with lots of purring, lap sittings & just by being especially cute & cuddly. For the Mums & Dads of the pets: the special, free Extras (pics, videos, photo albums, greeting cards created by me for you) on offer are the grateful expresssions of my appreciation for having me as your pet sitter, but if you are not as "Mad" about your "Paws", as I am, you don't have to have them, of course...To experience my video diaries, please find "Harvey, the pug puppy" movies on YouTube (video clips made of our post Xmas celebrations in the park, he belongs to a friend, so my "pet sitting services" for him are free, out of love), I would treat your pets the same way, as I found I could create instant & loving connection with every "furry children"- fact verified at my first encounters with all of my MadPaws pet clients ...

As I am very passionate about animals, I would be the best person to look after your Baby or Adult Pets with my loving care & genuine desire to make them feel happy & adored, As I live close to the CBD, I prefer "City-Pets", but willing to travel within a 5-10 km radius. As I have no children, I have so much love to offer to your precious Pets. I would send you photos by emails of your Babies, whilst there are with me, to reassure you that they are in good hands, healthy & safe & to record our special time together, for your "family" album & for mine as well, not to mention this site's photo gallery...Please, note that the overnight fee does not include full day stay as well, it's not a 24/7 (day&night) service fee...We can negotiate the service fee depending on the duration of the visits, services required & location of your, the pet owners' home. You will find that other pet sitting websites are more expensive than us, charging high hourly or day/night rates. To be honest, I do pet sitting for my passionate love of cute, fluffy creatures with four paws & for the emotionally rewarding encounters with them, whilst they are in my personal care you can trust. I assure you I offer "Pet-Tailored", Reliable, Responsible & Doting Pet-Sitting services to your Adorable Furry Babies with a Sensible & Affordable Price tag. Furthermore, as a Special Treat for Loyal (repeat) or Long Stay Pets (more than a week), I would propose to the Pet Owners Discounted Service Fees or Pet-Pampering Package Deals, in accordance with the frequency & length of my services required. In addition, I promise that your pets spending family festivities, such as Easter or Christmas with me, whilst you are away on your holiday, will get their free Easter/X-mas presents handed over to them by me, so they won't feel forgotten...
Please, note that the personal upload photos do include my own cat & some pet friends & many of my furry clients as well...The cover photo is part of me & Gidget's (my pet client, the little black cat with a big heart) special bonding moment captured when meeting for the first time...

Ilona is great and really took the time to understand the dogs needs and go out of her way to make sure he was comfortable and entertained. I would highly recommend her for your dog and look forward to having her look after my daschund in the future.

Ilona is wonderful. She minded our cats in our home while we went away for a few days. She is so kind and lovely, totally trustworthy, and our two cats loved her. Ilona obviously has a special gift with animals and loved ours as if they were her own. It was also good to know we had someone responsible and careful keeping an eye on our house. I would recommend Ilona to anyone who loves their pets and wants to leave them in safe, caring hands while on holiday.

Dear All, my name is Ilona, but you can call me Helen. I am a mature aged, fit and healthy woman with great passion for animals, all creatures, big and small.
