I am an environmental lawyer who moved to Utrecht because my husband is doing a PhD at Utrecht University. I care for all animals, not only pets, and as an environmental lawyer I am well aware of the situation of wildlife and I try to live my life as respectfully as possible with nature and other livings in general.
I provide cat sitting and also dog sitting. Sleepovers ? Not a problem As long as you can offer me a clean space where I can sleep :) (however keep in mind that I'm 155 cm) so unfortunately I can't provide sleepover if you have a big dog that needs to be walked outside the house. If during the stay over your furry friend needs to be walked more than once an extra fee of 10€ applies.
*I do provide my services outside my area however, depending on where you live extra costs for public transport might apply.
I have two cats (D'Artagnan and Coco) that I brought from Ecuador to Utrecht (it was a crazy process, I can also help with advice).While growing up I was always surrounded by pets.I had a dog (Dreyfus) and another cat (Shosho) that lives in Ecuador with my mom.I have regularly pet sited a cat (Moncha) for a friend in Ecuador. My husband also loves all animals, so we were more than happy to help.
If your pet is a dog perfect! I can come for a “meet and greet” so we can see if it’s a match. This is definitely the most important thing for me, because if we connect, you can rest assured that your furry friend and me are going to have a great time. However, I understand that some dogs are a little shyer or need more time to accept strangers into their environment. Don’t worry I'll take the time during the sitting to let him/her become comfortable with my presence.
I've found out that each owner have different routines for their furry friends depending on their schedules, so it’s my priority to stick with it and all of the indications that you provide.
If you have cats, the first part of my visit or sleepover will consist in letting the cat/s acknowledge my presence.If they're shyer and decide to hide, I'll take this time to clean the box and prepare their meal.After they have eaten their meals its playtime!Or whatever cats prefer to do.I am flexible with any of the activities. The important thing is to make sure that the cats are happy and do not miss their usual routine too much.
In both cases, before I leave I will make sure that everything is clean, in place and in accordance with any specific instruction that you might have given me.
Tammy is a great catsitter. Our cat felt at ease with her from the start. She kept us up to date with photos and videos which was very reassuring. She also closed the curtains at night and put away the mail which made for a carefree holiday. We can really recommend her!
