My name is Melinda Badenhorst, I am 28 years old and originally from sunny South Africa. In 2020 I moved to Amsterdam and started a PhD position at Vrije Universiteit Medisch Centrum (VUmc) with a project topic in cancer research.
I love Amsterdam and I enjoy living in the city a lot, however, the only thing missing in my life: pets! I love animals and they love me! Hopefully in the near future I can once again get a pet of my own, but until then I would love to take care of yours and have that animal connection that I miss. Back home in South Africa I had an adorable cat, called Kattie. I also have prior experience taking care of friend's and co-worker's pets, since I would always jump at the opportunity to be someone's pet sitter.
Like I mentioned, I am currently pursuing a PhD, which makes my daily working schedule relatively flexible. I mostly determine my own work hours and could come to your home for a short visit essentially any time of the day. However I am mostly free after hours and most weekends.
I can offer the following services at your home: daily visits to feed your cat/dog, clean their litter boxes, play and cuddle with them and make them feel calm while you are away. Although I have more experience with cats, I do love dogs as well and would be happy to take care of and give your dog the attention it deserves!
I am reliable, punctual, trustworthy and have good time management capabilities. I can assure you that in my care, your pet would be as happy upon your return as when they were before you left!
I am looking forward to meet you and your pet, to take care of them and give you peace of mind while you are enjoying some time away from home!
Melinda cared for my two cats while I was gone for two days and everything went well.
Melinda was a great company to our cats while we were away! It was very easy to communicate and plan things with her, she was very punctual and she was even sending photos of our cats every day (in which it was clear that they were having a lot of fun with her!😁). You can see that she really loves animals, is willing to spend time with them and she had no problems during her visits to our house. One of our cats takes a daily medication and she also has experience dealing with this. Overall we are so so happy that we left our kitties in her care, would definitely book her again and 100% would recommend🥰
