Hello to my loyal clients and potential new clients reading my profile. Please note, I have very limited availability for overnight stays - my calendar is updated to June 2021. Please treat the estimated price as an ESTIMATE only, there are things that will incur extra fees eg 2 house visits per day, travel more than 10kms away, after hours pick up and drop offs, special trips to pick up/drop off keys. I DONT charge extra for multiple pets.
I am so lucky to have so many regular clients and I have started to book out quite far in advance and months at a time. To avoid diappointment, the more notice the better although I will accomodate short notice bookings wherever I can.
My property is fully fenced with tall, secure timber fencing so please dont hestiate to contact me to discuss bringing your pet here for an inspection for pet hosting. I have two indoor cats so any animals I host must be cat friendly as I can’t have my cats being chased around and harassed in their home. Please be upfront and honest about any behavioural issues i should be aware of (eg chewing, excessive barking, agression) as I will have no hesitation in ending the booking early and asking you to return home if the safety of my cats or the peace in my home is compromised because an owner has failed to provide enough information to ensure a safe and happy 5 star stay.
Please dont ask me to take cash or make bookings outside of this app, your request will be politely declined.
it is with excitment and a bit of sadness I would like to advise that I have recently relocated to Spring Mountain (near Springfield lakes) and am no longer able to offer any services in the Brisbane City region. Thank you to all of my wonderful Brisbane clients for inviting me into your homes and wishing you all the best in finding a new Madpaws sitter local to you. I can enthusatically recommend you to my friend Rachel who lives in the Kangaroo Point area and will be able to provide fantastic service for your pets. She has personally looked after my cats when I used to travel for work. You can check out her profile and reviews here ———> https://www.madpaws.com.au/petsitter/kangaroo-point-qld/rachel-b-reliable-friendly-caring-loves-animals
I have owned and cared for a variety of pets my whole life. If my backyard was big enough I'd have chickens, dogs and horses but I am currently a crazy Cat-Mum to two gorgeous cats - Kiki (grey tabby) & Porsha (Bengal) who are my world and yes, i use the word ''fur-babies". Trust me, no request or special requirements are going to sound over the top. I can scoop litter, pick up poops, wash and dry food bowls, hide treats around the house, make their beds each day - there is no judgement here about how you want me to best care for your pet and you are paying me for a service so please feel comfortable in providing detailed instructions. I also water plants and collect your mail if you are away for an extended period. It's a bit of a running joke within my family about the lengthy instructions I leave for my own cats (back in the day when I used to travel)!
Please make sure all the pets you want me to care for have their own profile on here. I am very careful when entering and departing your home to make sure there are no near misses or actual escapes and that gates and doors are shut securely and locked. My own two cats are little Houdini's who try every trick in the book to escape so I am overly concious of making sure your pets are safe.
I will respect your space and family's home by abiding by social distancing and disclosure of any recent illnesses. I have been working from home in my home office full time since February. I'm also not there to inspect your home so please do not apologise for washing on the couch or pet hair on the floor!
I have my own transport and am familiar with the emergency vets in the area. I drive an SUV so can transport medium & large dogs and always keep a cat carrier in the back in case of an emergency (touch wood, have never had to use it). My own cats are indoor cats and regularly vaccinated and tick and flea treated, I will treat your animals as if they were my own and have made second and third trips to check on pets during some wild summertime storms so that my clients and I have peace of mind no matter the situation.
I have a current police check verified by MadPaws noted by the police check "badge" on my profile (although it is encouraged, not all sitters on this platform have a police check)
A bit about me - Im 30 years old, I work as a project manager in financial services and have been with the company 10 years. I love having furry co-workers share my spacious home office with me during the day for daycare.
I would love the opportunity to come and meet with you and your pet to see if I am a suitable fit to meet your pet’s care needs. I am very comfortable with technology so can send you regular updates via your preferred channel (whatsapp, email, imessage, Facetime or through the MadPaws app) and am experienced with administering topical or oral medication (as well as all the little tricks cats and pups like to pull to avoid medication!)
The fee covers my time for our initial meet and greet, my time to travel to and from your residence as well as 20 minutes in your house spending time with your pet on each scheduled day.
If you refer a friend and they complete a booking, you will get 15% off my base rates on your next booking (just make sure they mention your name!)
Public holidays (Australia Day, Easter etc) incur higher fees. These prices are reflected in my calendar already.
You are more than welcome to drop your key to my house in Spring Mountain. If you require me to travel to you to collect/return a key outside a scheduled visit or meet and greet an additional $10 charge will apply. I dont suggest or encourage owners to hide their key on their property but this is what some people are comfortable with and I am happy if this is your preferred method to exchange keys :)
