Hi, my name is Ilan!
I adore animals and will do my utmost to love and care for your beloved kitty/kitties.
I’m a loving, friendly and reliable, mature-aged (50’s), former senior manager in the IT industry and public sector, now currently working part-time in communications strategy and volunteering for a wildlife conservation charity with their advocacy and campaigns.
Before becoming an Aussie citizen, I grew up in Canada, with 2 lovely cats. Since my apartment block doesn’t allow pets, I’m really missing the heart-warming company of fluffy feline friends so am seeking to cat-sit again.
I’m a reliable, caring and adaptable pet-sitter.
My prior pet-sitting has been for friends’, flatmates’ and neighbours’ cats, chooks, frogs, birds, even snails and worm farms!
As my parents had an elderly cat, I also have experience applying topical flea medicine.
I appreciate that all ‘puddy tats’ have their own personalities and likes/dislikes so am happy to adapt to your pets’ needs.
I understand the responsibility involved in cat-sitting, particularly sticking to their care routines to help them be happy, comfortable and secure–and to enable you to relax while away.
Services and availability
My services include feeding, making sure your cats have lots of water, cleaning up after them and of course, providing them with tons of affection (as they require–I appreciate that some cats prefer their space).
While you’re away, I would be more than happy to email you updates and photos of how your fur-babies are doing.
I can also collect your mail, water plants and put bins out if you’d like.
As I have a car, I can pop around easily to do a meet and greet. Preferred suburbs include: Camp Hill, Coorparoo, East Brisbane, Greenslopes and Norman Park.
I am open to accepting up to a maximum of two dinner and/or two breakfast visits/day.
And, or course, during COVID-19 I am very careful about adhering to public safety requirements - e.g. social distancing during meet and greet with you and washing hands/using hand sanitiser prior to entering your premises.
If you need someone to love your kitties and ensure that they’re safe and happy, please feel free to contact me.
I’m happy to provide references.
Ilan was very organised and professional from the very start allowing my partner and I to feel very comfortable allowing a stranger into our home to look after our two cats. Throughout the process she took a lot of care to ensure I was happy with everything she would be doing while we were away for ten days.
She was genuinely interested in caring for them and enjoyed the experience from what I could see in the numerous photos I received on a daily basis. We came home to happy content cats and their space clean. I am extremely happy with the experience utilising Ilan’s and Pawshake’s services and will definitely be doing so again when we go away.
Ilan took wonderful care of my cat while I was away. She was very thorough in establishing all that needed to be done, where everything was and what needed to be done in the event of an emergency. She kept me up to date with regular messages and photos and let me know immediately when there were concerns. I definitely recommend her and would engage her again.
