*I'm back! After spending some time away to focus on my business, I'm available once again to look after your cherished cats and kittens*
If you haven't met me before, Hi! I'm Anna! I'm your resident crazy cat lady.
ABOUT ME: I've shared my life with a number of different feline friends over the years and my current cat is Noah. He's an adorable rescue cat (see ginger tabby pics above) and absolutely love him to bits.
Before Noah, I was a volunteer with Forever Friends Animal Rescue where I would take in one foster cat at a time to look after until we were able to find someone to adopt them. I've helped cats with all different personalities (including scaredies and scratchers) and I know a few tips and tricks to gain their trust quickly and help them feel relaxed and settled.
SERVICES: I work from home in Altona North and I'm free everyday of the week for house visits. Visits generally take approx. 30 mins and include the following: • Food – As per your instructions. Yesterday’s bowls will always be cleaned before feeding. • Water – Bowl will be cleaned and refilled with fresh water daily. • Litter – Cleaned daily and entire tray replaced once per week or as required. • Groom – I’ll give your cat a good brush to pick up any loose fur and keep them happy. • Love – Sometimes cats get a little anxious when their owner’s aren’t home. I’ll be sure to give them lots of love and a cuddle if that’s what they need. • Play – I’ll spend a good 15 mins playing with your cat to keep them stimulated, entertained and healthy. Cats a little on the chubby side will get a complimentary fitness regime to keep them feeling their best. • Cleaning – I adhere to strict hygiene standards. I will sanitise/wash hands before entering and keep your home as clean as possible. Any mess made by your cat will be cleaned on each visit. • Medicine – I have a little experience giving insulin shots but I am only comfortable if your cat is very placid and has been having them for some time. I’m comfortable with topical medicine and can administer pills to mild mannered cats. If your cat is used to having a pill/ arthritis medicine everyday then I’m happy to give this to them. If your cat isn’t used to or doesn’t like pills (like mine) it can be a little trickier and I usually need a 2nd person to help out. Let me know and we can chat about options.

House Visiting - Apr 24, 2021
Anna is such a wonderful pet sitter!! She did a great job of communicating before and during the booking, sent through lovely photos and did an amazing job of taking care of our cat, Butter. She was very kind about my over-anxiousness at leaving Butter, and we will definitely be asking her if she can pet sit for us again in the future!…

Anna was amazing!
We cannot recommend her enough. Not only did she send us pictures daily, she went over and above with spending time with our cat while we were away.
We are so happy with everything, from meet and greet to communication the whole time we were away. We will definitely be using both MadPaws and Anna again.
Thankyou so much Anna!…
Pet Sitting - Apr 6, 2021
Anna coped with aplomb with Heidegger's complex medical needs - multiple medications on diff days, as well as twice daily subcutaneous insulin - and also found time to play with Mocha and give them both attention. Great outcome and lots of photos and reassuring texts each visit. …
