About Maria

I am a cat owner for the last 5 years and before that was a turtle owner for nearly 7 years. I came to The Netherlands 6 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 was wonderful with our shy and hissy cat Mozes. Lovely updates and in the end Mozes liked her enough to come out and play! Best recommendation in our book!

We are so happy that Maria took care of our cat while we went away for holidays. Maria is very professional, highly motivated and driven by her honest care and true love for animals. During a 15 day period she was sending us messages and pics every day, letting us know on the current status. She has taken care of our cat as we had agreed (feeding her, cleaning the litter) but also she was playing with her and spending time with her. She even wanted to clean the mess that our cat created at some point and asked our permission and advice on what to do. We really appreciated this. In general, Maria is an excellent pet sitter and we will definitely ask her to help us in the near future!
