WHO AM I?
Hello there, how are you? I am Ines, a 33-year old Dutch female living in Amsterdam Zuid (but also available for housevisits nearby Arena/Strandvliet), and friends know me as 'that catlady' (I can't tell you how many cat memes I get from friends). I have lived all my life in Amsterdam, where I also got my masters in Psychology at the University of Amsterdam. Currently I'm working part-time, doing the marketing of a non-profit organization. This luckily gives me the extra time for my favourite hobby - taking care of lots of animals. My other hobbies are reading, going to the cinema and to stand up comedy shows, board games, travel and web design. Also, my friends would describe me as kind, responsible and someone who likes to take initiative.
Getting back to the subject of cats ...
growing up I was lucky enough to have 2 cats. And now I have the sweetest cat in the world Pepper who I got from a shelter. But I want more! :D To avoid being that lady with the 20 cats, this website really came in handy!
MY VISIT (& DURATION)
Next to taking care of your cats (cuddling, playing, food, litter box), I'll also take out your mail, water your plants, What's App you photos of your cats, and open for other tasks. Also, Pawshake claims a visit will be around 30 minutes, but I think that's too short if your pet likes cuddles or is very playful. So in that case, my visit will be around 60-90 minutes to give them the attention they deserve :)
When you start looking for petsitters, you can see how many KM's they're away from you. If you're 6 KM or more away from me, I probably won't accept your request (sorry, it will take too long to get there!). But I'm sure you'll find another great petsitter closer by. :)
-- I do also petsit nearby metro station Strandvliet / Arena, this is convenient for me because I'm in that area regularly.
WHICH ANIMALS DO I CARE FOR?
BTW, I don't only love cats! If you have a guinea pig, hamster, rabbit, etc, I would love to take care of them when you are away (ATM I'm not taking care of dogs though). So please send me a message if you have any questions, and i'll respond asap.
I've chosen for a flexible cancellation policy, which means you don't have to pay anything if you cancel before 12h00, one day before the booking starts. If you cancel after that, but before the start of the booking, you get a 50% refund.
Ines has looked after our bunnies on multiple occasions now and the only time I can ever relax on holiday is when she’s coming around to look after them. She’s super!
Ines is amazing! Very caring person and I could see that from the moment I met her.
When I got home after 10 days away, my cats were relaxed and calm, not begging for attention. Ines kept me informed all the time and our communication was very easy.
She made sure she understood all my instructions and I was definitely relaxed and trusted Ines fully with my cats and my house.
I will with no doubt contact her again; for me Ines will always be my first contact :-)
See you soon Ines!
