Hello, my name is Anja (pronounced Anya), I am a respectful, quiet person with a soft spot for books, modern art and caring for feline companions.
I live in an indoor jungle with my best friend and our beloved British Blue, Paddington. Pad-man loves lap naps, quality pats and watching the humans, silently compete for his attention. I would love to have more than one kitty in the house, but alas, Paddington is a possessive boy and we respect that. Luckily, becoming a pet sitter on Pawshake over a year ago saved me from becoming a cat hoarder and Paddy from having to share space with 49 other cats... It didn't, however, stop me from accumulating a substantial plant collection. I love being surrounded by plants and find looking after them incredibly soothing, therefore I am able to provide competent care if you have a needy indoor jungle of your own.
To provide the best possible service and get the most out of my time with your pets, I aim to take one booking at a time. For me, pet sitting is a labour of love, so keeping to one booking keeps me extra focused on spoiling your pet and providing you with regular updates. Everybody wins!
Please note that I rely on public transport to get from place to place, and for this reason, my services are mostly available in my local area and surrounding suburbs only. These areas include (but aren't limited to) the following suburbs: Melbourne CBD, Southbank, South Melbourne, Port Melbourne, East Melbourne, South Yarra, Prahran, Albert Park, Richmond, and St Kilda. If in doubt, feel free to reach out! In case I am not able to accept your booking for whatever reason, I will be able to recommend another trusted Pawshake sitter, so don't be shy :)
I look forward to meeting you and your pet!
Anja was an absolute dream to deal with and our cats just loved her. We got daily videos photos of Coco & Lola having the best time with Anja which was really reassuring when leaving them for several weeks. We came home to a spotless apartment as Anja had tided up all the car carnage and left us a little treat in the fridge which made us feel very loved too. We are now planning our next trip safe in the knowledge that our fur babies will be well loved while we are away. Thanks Anja, your part of the family now 😊😘
Anja was amazing! Her patience, love and care of Ollie and Bonnie was outstanding. She kept us well updated and sent through lots of pictures and videos every visit. As this was our first time away from our fur babies, we were quite anxious leaving them but Anja immediately put our minds at ease. Ollie and Bonnie are looking to our next trip away so they can spend more time with Anja!
