About Michelle

Hello awesome pet parents!

Here’s a little about me so you can get to know me. 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 found myself more free time than usual, so I want to do something else I love, caring for pets all shapes and sizes. This helps fill my days and keep me active.

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 this!

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 (postcode 3216) for overnight/longer term sitting jobs. Rates are somewhat flexible also, I’d like to work with you to create the best outcome for us all.

It would be an honour to chat with you about your needs, great or small... and be assured your pet will be cared for and loved on by me, just as you would!

Michelle was outstanding in the care she provided for our whippets.

Michelle looked after my two cats for two weeks and I would definitely recommend her. She sent me photos and messages whilst I was away, communication was great and she went out of her way to reassure me. I came back to two perfectly happy and healthy cats.
