My name’s Madolline

I’m seeing the world One cat at a time


Here’s some kind things people have written about my house and cat sitting efforts. You’ll find even more reviews on my TrustedHousesitters and joint House Sitters Canada/Aussie House Sitters/House Sitters America profiles.

Cannot rate Maddy highly enough. Her communication was wonderful, we received regular photo updates of Willow. She was wonderful and we’d love to have her house sit for us again.

Julien & Ariane: Sydney, Australia (2021)

Madolline sat our apartment and Pixel for 10 days over Easter. She has been an absolute legend starting with moving her flight 2 days earlier to make sure she could travel to NSW (during a COVID outbreak in Brisbane). The communication from the beginning has been perfect and flawless. We were very pleased to receive many photos of Pixel during our holidays. We could see she was taking the best care of him and that he was having a blast. We came back to a sparkling clean apartment and a happy cat! We would not hesitate to have Madolline come back for future sits and cannot recommend her enough.

Maddy is the most thoughtful house sitter we’ve ever had! I got multiple updates everyday with the best pictures of our little kitties ♥

She cared for our plants, our home, our neighborhood, our cats as if they were her own. Her attention to detail is inspiring! She took on our 2 very different cat personalities with ease and love! I have never taken such a carefree vacation. I knew that anything that happened she would either handle, or call me to help figure out how to handle it. Every part of the sit was seamless! The cats were so well cared for that it seems like they were better behaved when we got home ♥

I am beyond grateful to have found Maddy! Anyone would be lucky to have care for their home and cats! Thank you!

Maddie communicated well and promptly from the beginning, was completely respectful of our things and privacy, took great care of our place (garden, house) and 2 old, lovey cats so well we could tell they’d all been paid tons of attention. She sent terrific pics of them while we were gone, and has kept in touch since she left so we’ve gotten to watch her travels. She loves where she goes: explores and relishes each place in ways that show her zest and curiosity. She has our wholehearted endorsement, and when the time comes to find new cats (since our sweeties have both died), she will be the first person we contact.
