Hello Pawshakers! I'm Eleonora, and together with my boyfriend Simone we decided to join this community to help other people like us go on holidays with their mind at ease; and to grant your pet an awesome vacation full of attentions and cuddles!!
0) WE are..
Both from Italy and very experienced with cats as we both had many cats in our lives coming from a small town in the tuscanian country side. As well, Simone has gained a lot of experience with different animals due to his time in Australia where he worked in a farm for 6 months: such as cows, sheeps, bulls, cats and dogs.
We first joined Pawshake because we needed someone trustworthy who could take care of our lovely cat while we were on holidays, (we now have two adorable little ginger kittens) and after already few times using it we decided to start helping people who, like us, just love so much their furry friends and want them to always have the best company, even when they are not there.
We live right next to the city center of Zaandam, in a well maintained apartment on the 2nd floor. No worries for your pet, even if we live in an apartment, it's very spacious with a balcony that we modified with extra fence to be extra safe for pets. (see photos attached).
Underneath our building there is a beautiful little park we will go to walk your dog and the neighborhood is safe and with canals and more parks near by!
PS: we are very passionate about photography, so if your pet is gonna stay with us we are gonna take beautiful, professional-looking pictures of him/her so you can have a nice memory with you!
ABOUT THE BOOKING:
1) the "Meet and Greet"
We are gonna meet at first few days before the booking starts as we need to get to know each other to ensure it's a great match. In this time we will introduce ourselves and explain for both parts the expectations and share important details and information about your pet; like allergies, habits and if there is any medication needed to take care of him/her at best. We are gonna see if your pet is comfortable with me and vice versa and if positive, we are good to go for the next step...
2) THE BOOKING:
"Your pet holidays"
The first day will be depending on the the type of booking and from the character of your pet, he/she needs some time to get use to a new person since we met ones!
We will start with the basics; food, water, and cleaning the litter or go for a walk.
Every visit lasts between 45 minutes to 1 hour. When the pet is familiar with us, we will start to spend time with him/her. Cuddling, brushing, playing and make sure all the basic needs are covered at all times and fulfilled such as, pouring fresh water, feeding, clearing of the litter. ( If it's a home visit, we will be happy to give water to your plants and refresh the air opening the windows for a while as well, one less thing you need to worry about :) .
We absolutely ensure you that our primary goal is to make your pet feel comfortable. If he/she has a particular need, just let us know and we will take care of it.
For the food, is not included since we always recommend the owner to provide us the indicated one the pet is used to have.
3)WE WILL KEEP IN CONTACT:
"fun and pics"
Each visit we will send you great photos or videos on your preferred platform (WhatsApp, Messenger, or Pawshake app) and when you are back, we will meet one last time to give you back your keys and a final chat if needed.
We are looking forward to meet your little pets and spoil them with cuddles and treats!
If you have specific questions don't hesitate to contact us or send us a text!
Eleonora has been a perfect cat sitter for my cat Mollie. She is very reliable and communicates very clear. The regular foto updates she sent about Mollie i really appreciated. Mollie is diagnosed with kidney failure and she was so thoughtfull of asking for the Vet’s contact details just in case something happend. This Made me feel i left Mollie in good hands. I would defenitely recommend her and book her again as cat sitter when necesarry.
Echt goed katoppas! Ze zorgen perfect over onze poezen. Ze had ons veel video gestuurd. Ze zijn echt dieren vriendelijk personen.
