Hi, my name is Maiko. I am 43 years old and originally from Japan. Since 2003 I have been living in Europe. I am married with two children aged 8 and 10 and live with our beloved cat, Daphne (born in March 2022). We adapted her in November 2022.
My story with cats started when I looked after my friend's cat, Skye (7 years old female), when my friend was on holiday. Skye stayed with us for three weeks and we all fell in love with her! Soon after Skye went back to her owner, we decided to have our own cat and adopted Daphne. Now I cannot think of a life without cats. I find it so soothing and comforting to stay with them. I also like communicating with them. As a child/teenager, I had goldfish and hamsters. I especially liked my hamsters because they were cute and happy to interact with me.
Now and then I still take care of Skye when my friend goes on holiday (in their house because Skye does not get on well with other cats) and that is the reason I would like to be a cat sitter. I would love to do the same for other people when they need to leave their cats behind and go on holiday etc. I see myself as a caring and organised person and I would love to look after cats as well as to do a bit of tidy up, water the plants, check the mailbox and so forth.
I have no experience with dogs, so my service is limited to cats. If your cat is fine with other cat and children, she/he could stay in our apartment. Our balcony has cat nets.
I live near the Den Bosch central station. I could visit areas max 20 minutes by bicycle. I don't have a car.
I speak perfect English, and a bit of Dutch and Italian.
Maiko did a great job cat sitting! We were very happy!
Maiko was a fantastic cat sitter for our feline friends. She consistently ensured they were well-fed and comfortable. Her daily updates with adorable photos kept us at ease while we were away. Maiko's genuine care and attention to detail made a significant difference. We returned to find our cats happy and healthy, thanks to her excellent care. Highly recommend Maiko for her exceptional service and loving approach to pet care. Thank you, Maiko!
