About Margaret

Hello! My name is Margaret and I am a master’s student at Utrecht University. I’ve lived in the Netherlands for 3 years now, but unfortunately ik spreek geen Nederlands. I’ve been around animals my whole life and have cared for pets of my own for most of my life. Even since I was little I would help my mom volunteer at our local animal shelter.

I do not have as many pets here in the Netherlands as I did in the U.S. so this is the main reason I have signed up for this service, just to be around animals a bit more.

I am a patient person with people and animals and understand that we all have boundaries. So I don’t mind taking a bit of extra time to get to know your furry friend. With my cat at home, I talk to them quite a bit because I always find it makes them more comfortable and calms them down so I look forward to having great conversation with yours.

I don’t mind cleaning the litter box while I am visiting.

I am also very good at giving medication, so this is also possible.

If you can’t make it to the vet for any reason I don’t mind taking your fur baby to the vet and keeping you updated the whole time. This will cost a bit extra because of transportation and extra time.

The cats immediately came to her when she first entered the home! She sent photos and videos every day of the cats while we were away. We would love to book her next time! 😸

Margaret is such a joy! She has cared wonderfully for my three cats this week while I was away on business travel, staying with them longer than initially planned, playing with them, sending me beautiful pictures and videos of the cats every day to reassure me, with funny texts which definitely lightened my meetings up. I came home to happy cats and a tidy place. I will definitely call on Margaret again for future needs and highly recommend her.

Skills

Specific Skills

I speak English
+10 years of experience
- Medication (pill and injection) administration. - I've grown up with many pets my entire life so I am very able to notice changes in pet behavior and physical appearance that might need more attention and how to act around many different types of animals from horses, dogs, cats, and even birds. - I have raised kittens before and owned puppies as well as senior animals, so I understand the wide change in needs that comes at different stages in an animals life.
