We kunnen Doruk niet genoeg aanbevelen als kattenoppas! Hij heeft deze vakantie twee dagen op onze katten, Louie en Ozzie, gepast en we zijn zeer tevreden over zijn zorg voor hen. Vanaf het moment dat Doruk binnenkwam, voelden we ons meteen op ons gemak. Zijn vriendelijke en zorgzame houding straalde door, en het was duidelijk dat hij een echte dierenliefhebber is. Louie en Ozzie reageerden in eerste instantie wat afwachten maar ze zijn ook helemaal geen andere mensen gewend. Na 2 dagen wennen reageerden ze heel positief op hem, wat ons geruststelde dat ze in goede handen waren. Doruk heeft uitstekend voor onze katten gezorgd, ervoor zorgend dat ze genoeg aandacht kregen, speeltijd hadden, en natuurlijk hun maaltijden op tijd kregen. Hij nam zelfs de tijd om met hen te knuffelen! Wat ook opviel, was hoe gemakkelijk het was om met Doruk te communiceren. Hij was altijd bereikbaar voor vragen of updates, en hij stelde ons regelmatig gerust door ons op de hoogte te houden van hoe het met Louie en Ozzie ging. Al met al waren we buitengewoon tevreden met Doruk's diensten als kattenoppas. Hij is niet alleen een fantastische verzorger, maar ook een fijn persoon om mee om te gaan. We zullen zeker weer contact met hem opnemen de volgende keer dat we een oppas nodig hebben voor onze katten! --- English translation We can't recommend Doruk enough as a cat sitter! This holiday, he looked after our cats, Louie and Ozzie, for two days, and we're extremely satisfied with his care for them. From the moment Doruk walked in, we felt immediately at ease. His friendly and caring demeanor shone through, and it was evident that he's a true animal lover. Louie and Ozzie were initially a bit hesitant, but they're not accustomed to other people. After 2 days of getting used to him, they responded very positively, which reassured us they were in good hands. Doruk took excellent care of our cats, ensuring they received plenty of attention, playtime, and, of course, their meals on time. He even took the time to cuddle with them! Another thing that stood out was how easy it was to communicate with Doruk. He was always accessible for questions or updates, and he regularly reassured us by keeping us informed of how Louie and Ozzie were doing. Overall, we were extremely pleased with Doruk's services as a cat sitter. Not only is he a fantastic caregiver, but he's also a pleasure to interact with. We'll definitely reach out to him again next time we need a sitter for our cats!

Maya was an absolute gem of a cat sitter! When I got back from my trip, my cat seemed happier than ever, which was a delightful change compared to my experiences with other sitters. Maya was super organized, always letting me know when she was going to pop in to check on my cat. Every day, she sent me the cutest pics and gave me all the deets about how my cat was doing, which was so reassuring. She followed all the instructions I left to the letter, and everything went super smoothly while I was gone. Honestly, I'm kinda bummed that she's moving out of Amsterdam. She's been the best cat sitter I've had, and I'm sure any cat would be lucky to have her. Totally recommend her to anyone who needs someone reliable and caring for their pet!
