About Madeliene
I will be taking a temporary leave as an immediate family member has passed away. I hope to be back up and running in a few weeks. Thank you all kindly for being patient and I will get back to you ASAP. Return clients will have priority during this time.

My world revolves around animals of all sizes. No matter where I travel across the globe, animals take a liking to me. I say animals broadly, my limits are not just to cats and dogs, but horses, snakes, goats, fish and the rest! I have three loving babies of my own - Two cats, Tink the Ragdoll, 5, Luka the Maine Coon, 3, and Mellow my lovely little Darwin Carpet Python (don't worry she doesn't bite!). I recently lost my blind poodle, Hunney at 16 who had a long and spoilt life. In my past, I've also welcomed in a bearded dragon, birds and some chickens into my home, all loved just the same! My history with pet sitting includes looking after friends and families loved fur-babies and long term volunteer work with the RSPCA, sacrificing every weekend for the love of the animals, which isn't a hard choice.

Currently, I live in Southport and I have transport to and from as I cannot host at my place. I am studying at Griffith University and I am almost always available morning and nights every day. I will devote my attention to each one of your little (or big) loved ones. I'm familiar with pets who have anxiety and know how to calm them down (overnight stays too if that's what it takes). Also, noting their dietary and exercise requirements. I've proven reliable and independent and will always put the care of your pet first. I look forward to pet cuddles of all kinds!

IMPORTANT: Please allow time for a Meet and Greet before the booking date so I can meet you and your beloved pets and assess their daily needs and wants (food, behaviours, exercise) in preparation for the sit. (Return bookings not necessary)

COVID-19: Contactless Meet and Greets. Ensured cleanliness and sanitization every single time. No overseas travel or signs of illness/respiratory problems (both parties, sitter and owner).

Madeliene was great, kept us updated through out our trip with updates and pictures. Felt like we left our dogs in very safe hands. Would highly recommend.

Madeliene was amazing, we were so happy to receive some great photos of our Charlie looking happy and well looked after! She went above and beyond to put our minds at ease, and we would definitely love to rebook her in future!
