Hello, this wonderful cat—dog—reptile—younameit community! My name is Marina, I’m a 28 year old young professional/expat, living in the Netherlands for 4 years now.
I have been looking after cats all my life and I love doing that. I looked after other people’s dogs multiple times too! I care about them as if they were my own children because that’s how you must feel when you have your own pet. I can’t keep a pet in my apartment because of the regulations but I’m happy to spend a few hours or two looking after other people‘s pets!
I have a full-time job so I’m not available for pet sitting 24/7 but I’d be really happy to spend some time with our little friends in my spare time. I always make sure they are well fed and not bored while their parents are away, because I know that most of them can be really sensitive to being at home alone. I have had a lot of pets myself: some cats, a parrot and a hamster. After petsitting for many friends in Amsterdam, including living with a cat for 3 months, I decided to sign up Pawshake and meet more furry friends.
I hope to bring as much joy into their lives as they bring to mine!
As always, Maryna is the best.
Marina was great with our two cats, she visited them once a day for 10 days, which is the longest we've left them alone. She sent us daily updates, cute little videos of them having their meal or playing/chilling on the balcony and she followed our instructions in detail, even bringing our mail in. The cats took to her really quickly, even our shy one was out and about on the second day, which is quite a feat - she usually takes a lot longer to get comfortable enough to come out from under the bed:) And our tomcat was always greeting her at the door when she visited, ready to get his food and cuddles. We wholeheartedly recommend Marina and we'll definitely ask for her help again.
