About Shikha

Hello,

Happy to update that as of now I have done cat sitting for more than 30 cats and 1 dog 🥰 

(DUTCH VERSION BELOW)

I'm Shik, a cat lover who signed up for cat sitting because I miss my own cat and enjoy spending time around cats. I have more than two years of experience in cat sitting.

By profession, I am a lawyer, and in my free time, I volunteer as a cat adoption coordinator at Rescue Dogs and Cats in the Netherlands, working to find forever homes for as many cats as possible.

I have experience in taking care of various animals, including cats, parrots, dogs, and rabbits, but cats are my absolute favorite. No, actually, I'm favorite of the cats 😄 Over the years, I've fostered rescued cats, including shy ones and those initially scared of humans, helping them transform into playful and loving companions. My cat sitting experience extends to kittens, older cats, shy cats, super energetic cats, and both indoor and outdoor cats.

As a cat sitter, I prioritize following all given instructions and closely monitoring the cats throughout my stay. My approach is to earn their trust patiently, avoid any forceful interactions, and allow them to feel comfortable in my presence.

For cat sitting videos, photos and reviews, you can check out my social media pages on Facebook and Instagram with the username "catsitterinhoofddorp."

I hope this description accurately reflects my experience and passion for caring for cats.

Hallo,

Ik ben Shik, een kattenliefhebber die zich heeft aangemeld voor kattenoppas omdat ik mijn eigen kat mis en graag tijd doorbreng met katten. Ik heb ruim twee jaar ervaring met kattenoppassen.

Van beroep ben ik advocaat en in mijn vrije tijd doe ik vrijwilligerswerk als kattenadoptiecoördinator bij Rescue Dogs and Cats in Nederland, waarbij ik werk om voor zoveel mogelijk katten een forever home te vinden.

Ik heb ervaring met het verzorgen van verschillende dieren, waaronder katten, papegaaien, honden en konijnen, maar katten zijn mijn absolute favoriet. Nee, eigenlijk ben ik favoriet onder de katten 😄 Door de jaren heen heb ik geredde katten opgevangen, inclusief verlegen katten en katten die aanvankelijk bang waren voor mensen, en hen geholpen te transformeren in speelse en liefdevolle metgezellen. Mijn kattenoppaservaring strekt zich uit tot kittens, oudere katten, verlegen katten, superenergieke katten en zowel binnen- als buitenkatten.

Als kattenoppas geef ik prioriteit aan het volgen van alle gegeven instructies en het nauwlettend in de gaten houden van de katten tijdens mijn verblijf. Mijn aanpak is om geduldig hun vertrouwen te winnen, krachtige interacties te vermijden en hen op hun gemak te laten voelenmijn aanwezigheid

Voor kattenoppas video's, foto's en recensies kun je mijn sociale mediapagina's op Facebook en Instagram bekijken met de gebruikersnaam "catsitterinhoofddorp."

Ik hoop dat deze beschrijving mijn ervaring en passie voor het verzorgen van katten nauwkeurig weergeeft.

Shikah is such a lovely person and cares deeply about animals. She took great care of my cat visiting twice a day as well as keeping in touch with photos and videos. She's flexible, reliable, and has good knowledge about how to interact with cats and is aware of their needs. I was confident my cat was in good hands. Highly recommended!

Exceptional pet-sitting service! My cat Fred has been cared for by Shik for the 4th time, and I couldn't be happier. Professional, kind, reliable, and genuinely loves animals. Highly recommend for anyone seeking top quality pet care!
