About Mandy

I am responsible, trustworthy and reliable and absolutely love animals. I have 1 lovely cat myself, Shadow. I have had cats most of my life and I have volunteered for the Animal Welfare League in Queensland.

I am happy to do home visits once a day to feed your cat/s/ dogs, clean the toilet, provide cuddles and brushes, whatever your pet needs. I am also happy to take your cat into my own home if you prefer them not to be alone over night. I would allocate a seperate area for them so they would not be left with my cat.

While I love all animals, I don't have much experience looking after dogs so I don't feel confident in offering my home boarding service to dogs. However, I am happy to do home visits to feed them and take them for a walk. Please consider if your dog is very active/ excitable or sometimes a bit difficult to manage, that I may not be the best sitter for your dog.

I have had a bird as a child and with instructions, I can look after small animals like birds or hamsters.

I have been pet sitting for 3 years now and always had positive feedback from pet parents.

Home visits: I can do 1 home visit per day, in my local area and look after cats or dogs. Home visits will generally last for approx. 20 minutes and include putting out fresh water and good, clean the litter tray, giving your pet a cuddle and a play, and give your pet a brush. I am happy to also bring in mail and water plants. If you require dog walking, please add this service when booking.

Dog walking will be approximately 30 minutes around your area and local park. The timing for the home visits will depend on my availability for the day(s), and so it may not be the same time every day.

Home Boarding: I can board up to 1 cat at a time. Your cat will have access to most of the house throughout the day when I am home. Your cat will have their allocated space in the bathroom, where your cats littler tray and food and water, bed and toys will be allocated. I will keep your cat in there at night and during times when I go out. As I have another cat, I will keep them seperated as my cat is not friendly to others. I am often home a lot (as I have a young child), so your cat will get frequent pats and cuddles throughout the day (if they want it), and I will play with them a few times as well. I will let your cat guide this as some are more shy and want to be left alone, whereas others want more attention. Of course your cat will be fed and given fresh water daily, and I will follow your routine.

For either service, I will provide a photo and update daily.

My services extend to Thornton and close surrounding suburbs only. For suburbs further than 15 minutes drive from Thornton, I'd have to charge a travel fee.

We recently used Mandy to call in daily to feed and play with our dogs while we were away.

We found Mandy to be extremely pleasant to communicate with and we were always reassured with photos and messages that our pups were happy and well.

We would absolutely use Mandy again.

Thank you again Mandy for taking such great care of Betty and Frank. I’m sure they are missing your daily visits :)

We highly recommend Mandy as a pet sitter. She took the time to invite us into her home and explain the entire pet sitting process (as we were new to PawShake). When we were away she sent regular brief updates on how things were going along with a few pics.

Thankyou Mandy for looking after our cat Georgie.

Can administer basic medical treatments, like flea treatments.

Great with technology and phones, I can send you as many email updates, texts and pictures as you'd like while you're away so you can feel reassured that your beloved pet is well looked after.

Visits with your pets will include whatever you need me to do like a brush, games, feeding and can also include any tasks that require daily maintenance around the home, bringing in mail, putting out bins, watering etc
