About Tessa

Growing up outside Amsterdam, we always had pets in our home. I grew up with Great Dane 'Mini' and our 6 cats, and lots of small animals like turtles, hamsters and even pet rats. In Amsterdam I live in a small studio appartment, with allergic flat mates, so pets are not an option right now. I did make friends with our neigborhood Bengal cat 'Peer', who even greets me when I cycle into our street. I often take care of cats of friends and family, and I would love to take care of your cat(s)!

Normally, I work as a lecturer for an Applied University and I have my own design studio, but I cannot work at the moment as I have some Long Covid issues, basically meaning I am tired a lot. This makes me an excellent candidate for spending a lot of chill time with cats;) I am available for short visits, longer caretaking and playtime and housesitting. We can discuss which times are best for you and your cat(s), generally I am quite flexible. Depending on our aggreement I can visit for longer or shorter. I speak Dutch and English.

I am located in the city center at Prinseneiland and would also offer services in Amsterdam West, Amsterdam Oost and de Pijp. Services I offer are; house visits and house sitting for your cat(s). I love playing around with them, and giving them lots of pets and attention, whatever you prefer for your cat. I am also fine with giving them basic medical treatments. I am also great with plants, so if you need me to include all living organisms, I am fine with that!

  • 20 euro: Basic visit will be half an hour for feeding, cleaning. Including gathering mail and watering plants. Depending on the amount of care and size of your house: the extra time is spend for playing and cuddling. Two cats included, extra cat: 5 euro. I will send you status updates and pictures of your cat if required. 
  • 25 euro: Basic visit, two times a day.I will send you status updates and pictures of your cat if required.
  • 30 euro: Night shift, staying over during the night. Including feeding, cleaning. Including gathering mail and watering plants. I will send you status updates and pictures of your cat if required.
  • 35 euro: Extended visit will be an hour for feeding, cleaning and playtime. If needed medicine can be given too. Including gathering mail and watering plants.I will send you status updates and pictures of your cat if required.
  • 40 euro: Housesitting, staying over at your house. Included are feeding, cleaning and playtime, and lots of attention. If needed medicine can be given too. Including gathering mail and watering plants. I will send you status updates and pictures of your cat if required.
  • Note: The first visit will always include a meet and greet with owner and pet(s). After which I can decide not to take on the request.

    Ik ben Tessa meer dan dankbaar voor het oppassen van mijn 4 katten. Door verschillende diverse redenen had ik op korte termijn een oppas nodig. Voor Tessa geen probleem. De poesjes werden goed verwend. Zal haar zeker nogmaals contacteren als ik weer een tijdje weg moet. Laat mijn liefjes dan met een gerust hart achter.

    Since I was 15, I was the neighborhood's cat sitter. Next to this, I also took care of our own cats at home. We had 4 cats at the same time, 6 in total. A combined household of cats from just your average non-pedigree red and white cat, to an Abyssinian cat. I love them all equally. I also housesit still for my aunt with three cats and my friend around the corner with two of them, including a no-nonsense Brazilian street cat with an attitude. I generally take time to empty litter boxes, feed them, check the water and make sure they get some pets, playtime and if needed have a lap for some nap time. Simple pills and other medication I am fine with, injections not so much.
