About Sabine

Who am I?

My name is Sabine, a Dutch 26 years old woman and a cat-lover all my life, growing up with them and wanting to have one since forever. I work as a PhD-student at the University of Amsterdam (Sixteenth century Dutch and English literature) and have flexible working hours. Because I currently share an apartment with young professionals in which animals are not allowed, I am not able to have a little furball for myself at the moment. I do miss them however tremendously, petting cats in catcafés, on the street or cats from friends to get my purring fix.

Experience with cats

As I grew up with cats, I know that the most important thing about taking care of cats is respect: if they do not want to be stroked, leave them be. They will come to you when they are ready. I remember the first cat I grew up with, Bilbo (named after the famous Hobbit), a feisty red lady who could scratch suddenly without warning. Lured in by her beautiful fur, I did pet her as a small child, but whenever she looked at me I immediately backed away, knowing her rapidly changing temper. My next cat Smartie was quite the opposite of Bilbo, never hurting anyone but also shy at first, her being adopted as a kitten from an animal shelter. I was her human, however, so she slept on my belly everynight and purred while drooling (her own cute quirk). In the last two years I have cat-sitted twenty-five cats with varying characters. Some of them were shy, some of them immediately wanted to be stroked, but all of them felt at ease with me in the end :) I prefer taking care of the cats in their own homes (daily visits or house stays), but if it is necessary they can stay with me as well for a brief period of time (if you need pictures of my apartment, let me know!). Most of my housemates adore cats as well :)

What I offer

What I offer mostly is love and devotion: I know and love cats and most cats seem to know this about me, the shiest cat coming to me for a brief petting session. I can feed them, brush them, play with them, inject medicine and take them to the vet if necessary. If you like what you read, please contact me! The most important thing, of course, is that the cat (or another animal, in case you have a rabbit or guineapig), is comfortable with me :) Cats make me happy, so let me make your cat happy too!
