About Michelle

Hi there

I am a registered neonatal intensive care nurse but also have a huge heart for animals. Caring is in my nature and I have a lot of love, time and energy to share. At present I am unable to work in my chosen career due to an injury so I have more free time than usual.

What has motivated me to join pawshake is I came home from bali at the start of 2019 where I spent my 3 week holiday fostering 5 orphaned kittens. Not your typical tropical getaway holiday but man was it enriching and fulfilling. This sparked in me a real interest when I got back to try to find ways that I could help others with their pets and what better way than to pet sit.

I have a lot of experinece pet sitting for friends over the years, mainly working with puppies. So this means I am all for working on training them and keeping in line with schedules and demands that they have. I don’t mind cleaning up little accidents and helping toilet train if needed. I have also owned my own beautiful puppy when I was living in far North Queensland, she was a beautiful rescued mix breed. Growing up we had dogs, fish, rabbits and birds. I have also done some farm work with sheep, cattle and horses. So I am an all rounder when it comes to animals and really there is none to big or small, or to young or old for me to handle.

I am patient, kind, caring and love snuggles with furry friends. It would be an honour for me to care for your beloved pet in your absence. I love taking photos too so you will get lots of cute updates if you want.

I am more than happy to travel up to an hours radius from home for overnight/longer term sitting jobs.

Michelle did a fantastic job of looking after our rabbits over Easter - very happy & well fed looking rabbits on our return. Michelle was great to deal with: very friendly, definitely a real animal lover, caring and was great at communicating with us and keeping us updated. We will definitely use Michelle again when next holidaying.

Michelle was outstanding in her care for our very boisterous Labrador pup. We could not have asked for more and would not hesitate to recommend her services. We were able to enjoy our time away, and we returned home to a noticeably calmer, more relaxed puppy. Finding Michelle was a big win for all our family.
