About Joanna
Hi Madpaws community!

I can't wait to meet and care for your cat while you are away.
I have successfully looked after cats in my home in the past and have loved every minute of it!

I work part time and study from home which means more play and snuggle time. My partner Tom is a big animal lover as well and is home in the evenings for cuddles (he is also up very early in the mornings too!).

Our home in St. Kilda East is a spacious, quiet 2 storey townhouse with a small downstairs courtyard as well as a sunny balcony for kitties to lounge and bask. We have a spare room/study upstairs that is converted into a cat's room with their own toys, bed, blankets and their food/drink area. I've found our bed and couch to be the favourite spots though!

It was Oli’s first stay away from home since we got him, and no doubt he bonded really quickly with Jo and Tom. This home away from home is abundant with love, cuddles, care, and just calmness all around. Organising with Jo is very easy and flexible, and her communication is impeccable. While my partner and I were away, we got daily updates and photos - helps us deal with missing Oli. 10/10!

Jo was very kind to Alfie. He was very stressed and not used to being left alone for so long.

Joanna was so lovely! I got regular updates from her and lots of photos! Her partner Tom seems to be my cat’s favourite person in the world. She was so comfortable with both of them. Joanna’s place is safe for cats and she goes above and beyond to ensure cat’s safety. I would highly recommend Joanna!
