I came from Brazil to do a Master's at Tilburg University, and I would love to take care of your pets!
At my family home in Brazil, we have two furry companions: Rebeca and Charlote. They're a dog and a cat, respectively - both have been with us for more than 10 years. I also have always enjoyed the company of pets in my extended family (for example, my grandmother always had plenty of dogs, and my parents-in-law live with about a dozen cats), so I have experience interacting and taking care of both cats and dogs.
At the moment, I do not have any pets here in Tilburg - unfortunately my building does not allow for any - so I am signing up to be a pet sitter because I miss being around pets. I would be happy to walk your dog, or to be your catsitter or house sitter. I will always make sure your pet is very well taken care of, and keep you informed of everything that is going on, even when the only things going on are feeding time and cuddles.
Besides pets, I enjoy being around nature in general - birdwatching, admiring the plants, and so on.
I also live very centrally in Tilburg, so I'm able to reach you almost anywhere in the city!
I speak English and Portuguese - I am trying to learn Dutch :)
PS. My wife, Paula, is also an experienced cat-sitter - she might join in on visits if you agree!
Gabriel en zijn vrouw Paula zijn ontzettend aardig, beleefd en lief. Onze hondjes hebben het goed naar hun zin gehad. Iedere dag stuurden ze een leuke foto of berichtje. Het huis is netjes achtergelaten. Vooraf hebben we 2 keer afgesproken om elkaar een beetje te leren kennen en het huis en de buurt te verkennen. We zouden ze zo weer op onze hondjes laten passen. De communicatie gaat in het Engels maar dat is voor ons geen probleem.
Gabriel and his wife Paula are very nice, polite and sweet. Our dogs have had a good time. Every day they sent a nice photo or message. The house was left tidy. We agreed 2 times in advance to get to know each other a bit and to explore the house and the neighborhood. We would have them look after our dogs again in a heartbeat. Communication is in English, but that is not a problem for us.
We were very happy with the way how Gabriel was taking care of our cat during our vacation. He kept us updated every day and took the time to play with our cat, besides the feeding and cat toilet cleaning. He even let out cat play outside in the garden. Our cat seemed pretty relaxed when we came home after 2,5 weeks. Thanks Gabriel!
