*** IMPORTANT NOTICE: Until further notice, I am no longer offering my services to new clients due to an unforeseen family situation. Please feel free to check in (if you’ve previously booked with me, I will still do my best to help) however I expect to be back on the platform by the end of the year. Wishing everyone the best until then. Keep safe, love Skye. ***
Hello! 👋🏻 Thank you for coming over to my page, please read on for more information about me and what I offer.
When I was young I use to look after the neighbours cat for 0.50c a day! As I got older I began to gain more knowledge and experience as a pet sitter, now at 33 years young I have been in the petsitting business for well over 21 years to which I am happily entering my forth year with Mad Paws. 🐾
My experience with animals also ranges from being a volunteer with RSPCA, a valued donator to SAHARA and a proud first aid and animal caring certificate finisher.
Currently I am completing a double business degree at the University of South Australia and have become a proud coffee addict! ☕️
The services on Mad Paws that I offer are Pet Sitting within your home or Pet Visits also to your home. Unfortunately due to my rental agreement and my 10 year old mini fox terrier, I can not offer Pet Hosting, my apologies.
❤️ Why choose me as your beloved and trusted pet sitter? …
If having over 95 and growing - 5 star reviews from current clients is not enough to settle your nerves let me tell you this. I have a police clearance and my payment will not be released to me until you sign off on my job well done!
I can assure you that my goal is to gain your furbabies, approval and never let them feel alone. I want to be their best friend and create our own secret paw hand shake! Putting your trust in me will allow the best care possible for your family member as I have an attention for detail, this means the water bowl will never be dry and the treats will never be few (unless of course mum has given strict instructions to which I will follow)… Did I mention I also offer free walks and park visits with my Pet Sitting service?
I am respectful and what this means is I will also care for your home, I will keep it tidy and undertake such jobs as bringing in the mail and taking out the bins. With this I also have reliable transportation and have held a full licence well over 10 years now with no strikes to my name.
I am gentle, honest, reliable, punctual, caring, loving and believe in positive leadership. Choosing me as your petsitter will be the greatest experience for your pet and best of all I will keep you updated with photos and messages with the reassurance that if needed I am only a phone call away.
I genuinely hope to hear from you soon to gain the honour of looking after your beloved the exact same way I care and love my own. Allow me to be there for you so you may do what it is you need to do worry free. I promise that your furbaby is in safe hands. Of course I am more than happy to answer any questions and for your convenience I have answered some just below.
1.) I can not always take on bookings that are longer than 7 days, however please still feel free to contact me as I will always make exceptions when I can to help.
2.) 100% of my attention is on the animals. If I am visiting I will be with them for at least 30 minutes completing all tasks you have asked of me (each visit varies on the animal’s and owners needs, some visits can be longer if need be.) If I am pet sitting in your home, then for at least 90% of that time I am home with them (unless I have at the time of booking informed the owner of any work shifts or an event) and yes I stay over each night playing and cuddling them, even singing them a sweet lullaby if you wish. 🤣
3.) Australia Day long weekend, Easter long weekend, as well as Christmas and NY do incur a slightly higher holiday rate.
4.) A visit is one service. For example if you need me for 3 days for dinner that is x3 visits, however if you needed me for breakfast and dinner that would be x6 visits.
5.) I am open to a discount if you are a regular client of mine or plan on booking a large booking.
6.) My fee covers one pet, if there are other brothers or sisters they are charged at $20 each for house sitting and $10 for visits. Fish and turtles are free. Please contact me if you plan on a long amount of time because once again, an alternative price can most likely be arranged.
7.) I am available for most suburbs however in most cases I can not offer my services to and surrounding areas of: Salisbury, Elizabeth, Gawler, McLaren Vale, Morphett Vale, Noarlunga, North Haven, Mt Barker, Strathalbyn, Mount Torrens and Callington. PLEASE ALSO NOTE: I can not offer visits to Adelaide Hills residences, only pet sitting, sorry for any inconvenience. ...

Pet Sitting - Apr 25, 2021
Skye was super friendly and looked after our 2 cats, our dog and our fish for 2 nights. She sent updates all the time with photos and left our house looking clean and tidy. She was easy to communicate with and had fair pricing. We would use Skye again. …
