About Erica

My name is Erica and I've lived with cats for so long I'm told I now act like one. I have lived and worked in Amsterdam since 2016, and happy to call it home. I grew up in Lebanon in an animal-loving household, with cats (we now have 5, but there were 18 at one point), three dogs, a turtle, and birds. I have watched mother cats give birth, bottle-fed abandoned kittens, given medicine to older cats, and granted endless cuddles to them all. As for dogs, I have walked, played, medicated, and helped to give birth. I am also comfortable with feeding birds and turtles, and open to learning how to care for rabbits or hamsters. I am currently studying a PhD at the UvA, and since I still would like to travel and explore my options once I finish, I cannot have a pet. So why not care for someone else's?

I'm open to home visits, homeboarding, dog walking, and house sitting. Comfortable with rescues.

Neighborhood: de Baarsjes/Oud West, also open to visits in Oud Zuid, Zuid, Nieuw West, Osdorp, Bos en Lommer, Centrum, and De Pijp. 

Occupation: PhD student at the UvA, coordinator at Sandberg Institute, and freelance researcher, editor, writer, translator

Languages: English, Français, العربية, Español, Nederlands

Motivation for using Pawshake: I miss my furry friends, and would love to meet yours!

Dog Boarding
Goksen, 2023-10-04

My experience with Erica was simply outstanding and incredibly stress-free, providing a haven of care for our two cherished dogs while we were away. From the onset, communication was smooth, easy, and reassuring; daily updates, alongside vibrant photos, were thoughtfully sent. Managing medications can often be a challenging task, yet she administered each dose with commendable precision and genuine concern, addressing a typically anxiety-inducing concern with utter professionalism. Upon returning home, we were greeted with the joyous barks and wagging tails of our healthy, exceedingly happy doggies, reflecting the exemplary, tender care they received. The peace of mind and heartfelt care provided are truly priceless, making Erica an unequivocal recommendation for anyone in need of stellar, worry-free pet care!

House Sitting
Katie, 2023-08-28

Erica was a great sitter, and I'd happily hire her again. I have one senior cat and two recently adopted younger ones, and Erica handled all their quirks and needs without issue. Her calm and attentive energy gave me a lot of peace of mind, and I enjoyed my vacation more knowing my three cats were in good hands while I was gone.
