About Fiona
Sarah and I are two cat loving professionals who work from home and would love to welcome your feline bestie to come and vacay with us 😊

We've set up the master bedroom in our quiet, peaceful home as a cat sanctuary, with a huge comfy couch (complete with heated blanket to stay warm on chilly days!), enclosed sunny balcony complete with catnip and cat grass (as well as some other cat-safe plants), and plenty of space for them to zoom around. The room comes with a selection of perching/ hiding/ snuggling spots, but you are more than welcome to bring their favourite scratching post and other items. We will be delighted to spoil them with all the cuddles and attention they need during their stay with us.

We do have a resident dog and cat of our own, but Shadow (my dog) can't climb the stairs, and Bonnie is a scaredy cat and just likes to hide in Sarah’s room (with the door closed) so your little one probably won't even realise our own pets are there. If you've got more than one cat, the space is huge and we are very happy to look after your whole kitty family.

Just going away for the weekend? We also offer daily pet check-ins (feed, water/ litter change, cuddles/ playtime plus plant watering if required) on weekends (Friday evening, Saturday, Sunday plus public holidays) in the Chippendale/ Darlington/ Redfern (west of Elizabeth Street) area. We can do twice-daily check ins (morning and evening or as required) for an extra 10$ per visit per day - let us know if you need this and we can manually update our fee 😸

We are new to mad paws but both very experienced pet carers, having fostered and shared our lives with a variety of critters from all walks of life over the years, and are more than happy to accomodate any medical or behavioural needs your little person might have - including both oral and subcutaneous (injected under the skin with a needle) medications administration. We have both received training in positive behaviour training and reinforcement, and we have a healthy respect and understanding of kitty boundaries - your cat will get plenty of treats, playing and cuddles (if they want them!) with us 😊

Fiona was amazing. Very attentive to my cats, bonded well with them. Regular check ins with pictures and videos and kept everything very clean. Thanks Fiona. Highly recommend you and will definitely use you again :)

Fiona was the original foster mum for my feline cat baby (Charlie) before I adopted him from the shelter, and I trust her completely with caring for Charlie when travel. She adores pets and treats Charlie as if he is her own. I know that Charlie is well cared for when I'm away, and Fiona sends me regular photos so I can see what he's up to. Charlie has his own private suite with a balcony to sun himself on when he stays with Fiona, and I love that he can have his own space to relax in. Fiona also has no qualms with his medical conditions and keeps up his daily medications while I'm away. Charlie is a frequent guest and I am very grateful to have found someone to spoil him when I need to travel!

Ollie loved his stay with Fiona and Sarah! I was nervous as it was my first time leaving him with someone else, but they sent me beautiful photo and video updates throughout and I could see he was having a blast and being spoiled rotten. Will rebook and absolutely recommend!
