About Ilona
Dear Pets and Pet Owners, you must have realised that we do experience some glitches on our website due to IT updates. Please, call me directly on 0448 035 267, if you have any trouble contacting me via Mad Paws, as I don't wish to miss out on any furry clients. Please, note that am a visiting pet sitter, am not hosting/boarding any pets in my happy to visit your four-legged children once or twice a day, stay with them for hours or half days (mornings or afternoons) or sleepover with them in your homes... About sleepover services, wish to clarify it once more, although have mentioned it earlier that they are not a 24/7 service, staying day and night, non-stop at the pet owners home. I had a client recently whom was very disappointed, when advised her that sleepovers normally start late afternoon or early evening and finished in the morning. There are day visits there, if additional services required for extra charge or it could be negotiated to commence sleepover services earlier and conclude them later next day for an increased fee we have mutually agreed on. This client has cancelled her booking with a comment made that am not offering the service required, which is not entirely true: I would have cared for her pet for extended hours with higher fees, but not for 24/7, as I do have pets to care for myself. Am sorry that I didn't have a chance to recommend her to find a pet-friendly house sitter, whom would be staying in her home for free. Dear Pets and Human Parents,treasure every moment of your lives together as it was your last one. I would love to cuddle up with your babies too, whilst you are away to make them feel loved always. For the Mums and 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 my movies on YouTube with titles of : "Puppy Romance in the park - part 1 and 2", "Cavoodle dog is having fun in the bed", "Burmese cat siblings' love: Momo and Yoshi" to mention few. I genuinely love animals like they all were mine, especially cats and dogs, I find that I could create instant rapport and loving connection with every furry child, a true 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 and genuine desire to make them feel happy and 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 and safe, record our special time together, for your family album and for mine as well, not to mention this site's photo gallery. To be honest, I do pet sitting for my passionate love of cute, fluffy creatures with four paws and 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 and genuinely Doting Pet-Sitting services to your Adorable Furry Babies with a Sensible and 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 and 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...I do spoil my pet clients with pet toys and treats anyway during my pet sitting services suitable for their little personalities and dietary requirements. So please, contact me, if you wish to pamper your babies with my compassionate love whilst you are away from them. Promise they will enjoy every minute spent with me and you will find them relaxed and contented on your return... ...

Ilona has been very kind and caring with our precious dogs. She has played with them, taken them for walks and made sure they were happy at all times. The dogs responded well to Ilona's interaction with them.

Ilona stayed at our apartment and took care of our two cats. She showered them with affection and took excellent care of them which we were very grateful for. She also managed to coax the fussy eater into eating more which was very impressive. She also sent many photos and updates while we were away. She is very committed and passionate about taking care of pets and genuinely loves all her little “babies” as she always calls them.
