Hello all pet lovers! I am Inês from Portugal, currently living in Utrecht. I have been a pet lover for as long as I remember that is why I have also volunteered at animal organizations and have adopted 2 cats.
I cannot have my own pets here and I miss my cats A LOT so I decided to become a pet sitter and have the opportunity to meet new cutties.
Services I can provide:
General - I cannot do dog sitting, only cat sitting! - I live in the Abstede neighbourhood, on the south-east side of the city centre, near the Wilhelmina Park and I have lots of places to go with your doggo for a nice walk. - I move around on foot or by bike so I can only catsit in and near the city centre. - I do not have pets or children in my apartment. - I can administrate oral medication to cats and cut their nails (if they allow me to 😅).
Cat Boarding & Cat Daycare 🐱💁♀️ - Sadly I cannot have dogs at my house BUT I am able to do cat boarding and I am used to having cats around and quite successful in making friends with them. - I have a large living room and a cosy sofa where he/she could take long relaxed naps. - I always make sure the house is clean and comfortable for every furry guest.
Dog walking 🐶🐾 - I have some experience walking dogs but I am not a master, yet. So, for the safety of all of us, I will only accept dogs that are clearly used to walking and that are small-medium sized. - I will walk your dog for about 15 to 30min.
Home visits & House Sitting 🔑 🌙 - Home visits will take 30 to 45 minutes but they can be extended depending on the number of pets and the care they need. - I will always make sure she/he gets enough food, love and playtime. - My services include cleaning the mess made by the pets and the kitty litter. I will also water your plants and bring in the mail or any other minor task we agree on. - Take your dog outside for the toilet or a walk. - I will keep in close touch with you by sending photos and videos and we can arrange video calls too if you want.
In short, I have decided to take my fondness to a higher level 🤞 One thing is certain, I will do my best to make your cutties feel safe and happy so you don't have to worry about them. Also, I am all ears to any feedback, advice and requirements you may have.
Looking forward to meeting your cute furry paws 🐾🤗

Treatment of animals
Inês is a very kind and easy going person. Who clearly has a great love for animals. My cat Jip stayed with her for a couple of nights and from moment one he was very comfortable at her house and with her. I felt really relaxed leaving him there. If I need a place for him to stay I would definitely choose Inês again.
I always trust Ines with my cat and my apartment. She takes really good care of her, and spends quality time with her too!
Very good communication. I received daily updates and videos of my cat which assured me that everything is going well :)
