We are a husband-and-wife duo currently living in Almere Buiten. My name is Xingye and my husband's name is Brian. We are both mid-aged and cat lovers (and proud cat owners). Between us we have had 6 cats of our own. I am currently working full time in Amsterdam Zuid as a legal professional, and my husband is wrapping up his PhD and will soon start job hunting (as an engineer). We have been doing catsitting in our spare time since 2018 while we were living in the UK as we absolutely love spending time with cats (as if the two boys we currently have are not enough :-)). We have a full profile with reviews on another cat sitting site that we mainly used in the UK. We become friends with all our clients there, and take care of their cats whenever they are away.
Prior to that, we also volunteered in local cat shelters as cat cuddlers. We are used to "deal with" cats with different characters and needs, and will respect their spaces if need be, or give them as much cuddle as they desire if that's what they want.
We recently moved to the Netherlands due to my job change, and would like to continue cat sitting here in the Netherlands.
We provide sitting services (home visits to your house only. We do not provide boarding services as our cats are free roaming in our house and we do not have extra space to house additional cats). Staying at home is usually the most calming and comfortable option for cats, as they are routine animals. They can usually handle "alone" time really well as they spend most of their time snoozing! During out visits, we can feed them, change/top up water, clean litter trays, and play with them/spend time with them to kepp them accompanied. We can also help watering plants, collecting mails etc while you are away. We can administrate oral medications (so no injections). Each visit will be approximately 30-45 minutes. The visit will be done by me or Brian, or both of us if we can make it together. We update via whatsapp after each visit, with pictures and videos if the fur master allows!
We usually do an introductory visit (free of charge of course) before the first sitting, so that we get to know the fur master(s), and understand any feeding requirements. We can usually be flexible with regards to the time and number of visits.
If you are looking for someone to look after your cats while you are away, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to meeting and getting to know your beloved cat(s)!
Xingye and Brian took great care of my cat and gave plenty of updates on how she was doing. I will definitely use their services again!
