About Karen

Hi there, I grew up on a farm. I've raised and cared for everything- from goldfish to baby birds, to goats. We always had cats AND dogs when I was growing up. In my professional life, I work as an executive assistant.

I had my own fluffy shadow - he's the cat you see in the pics. His name was Snoose Poose. Unfortunately, he died from a brain aneurism in his sleep suddenly on 2 January. He was 14 years old. I miss him and having "animal energy" around the house terribly, but I'm not ready to have another pet just yet, so a friend suggested I become a part time pet sitter 🙂

I'd love to welcome your pet into my home. I have a small apartment, with a balcony. It's on the first floor and looks onto a interior courtyard area. For dogs that need walkies, I live close to the Vondelpark and can work from home so they can have company all day. For cats, I have a litter-box, beds and scratching posts. I'd also be open to welcoming exotic pets too, I've had limited experience with these (corn snake only) so I would need some guidance but I adore reptiles of all kinds.

I have not administered anything more than pill-based medication to dogs and cats, but if your animal has special needs, I would be more than happy to work with you and learn their needs to ensure they remain happy and healthy while they stay with me.

Feel free to drop me a message with any questions you may have. I look forward to chatting with you and meeting your pet-baby!

Karen was really flexible and communicative. My dogs had a good time with her! :)

I left my cat Yumi for the 2nd time with Karen and will always choose her when I go on holiday.

I’m super relaxed knowing my cat is safe and comfortable in Karen’s house, she always sends me pictures and videos which I really appreciate.
