I am a cat owner for the last 7 years and before that was a turtle owner for nearly 7 years. I came to The Netherlands 7 years ago as I always wanted to live abroad. I choosed Leiden after visiting a friend who show all the greats things this city has and I didn't regret so far! Being an expat I always have to take into a count when planning holidays that I need someone to take care of my babies which is not always easy. A certain times we all go away and we need someone trusworthy to take care of our pets while we are away. Being an owner / mom cat myself I am aware how lonely sometimes they can feel and when taking care of other people pets I make sure they have their cuddles and playing time. If they are the shy / scare kind, like my oldest cat, I will make sure they feel safe with me before interacting too much as this could make them a bit more scare. If medication is needed I can take care of that too as long as I have all the indications before hand and the price might change a bit. I always love to be sent photos or videos from my cats when I am away so I can do that too. Of course, after every visit you will get a message through whatsapp or telegram. I have been pet sitting for friends for the last 6 years and it is something that I love to do for pets, and owners too hehe. As I have been a turtle owner, I can also take care of turtles or aquariums.
Maria took care of our cats for the first time and we are really happy with her!
We were pretty nervous to leave our cats alone for the first time, since we also have a little shy cats and they really are our babies but Maria updated us 2 times a day and send us lots of pictures!
We could really enjoy our holiday knowing our cats were in good hands and making friends with Maria.
Our next holiday we will ask Maria for sure again!
Second time Maria cared for our cats for the weekend: again we - and the cats - couldn't be happier with her care! It is clear that she does this from a genuine love for animals, but she is also very capable and professional. Highly recommended.
