About Erica

Hi, my name is Erica. I have been a cat sitter for many years, and now with Pawshake one year. I have experience caring for cats, dogs, bearded dragons, turtles, snakes, rabbits, chickens and worms. I moved to Amsterdam over a year ago from the US. I worked in the education department of a zoo in Brooklyn a few years ago, and loved to introduce kids to our education animals. My professional background is in environmental education- I have worked at urban farms, botanical gardens, environmental education centers, and other non profit organizations that explore ecosystems with children. I love all creatures large and small, and I'm not afraid when things get dirty.

I offer pet sitting at your home, perhaps in the future at mine as well. I can come over to feed, change water and litter, play with, and give lots of love to your pet while you are away. I have experience sitting for pets that need medication or extra care as well. I take my time, and make sure your pet is safe and comfortable. People tell me I have calm energy, and animals generally like me. I really enjoy being around all animals, but cats are my favorite.

When you leave your pet with me you won't have to worry about him/her getting enough love. And if you want, I'm happy to send daily pictures to help you stay connected.

I am open to overnight stays outside of Amsterdam as well, especially if you live by the beach!

Erica was great with our cat while we went on holiday. Communicated if there was an issue coming on a certain day and sent us photos each time she was there which was nice for us to see on holiday 🙂

We are happy and thankful for Erica's great care of our two cats - Wally and Cally this summer. She has an excellent understanding of cats and how to take care of them. They endeared to her quickly. Highly recommended!
