Manon heeft op mijn 2 katers gepast tijdens mijn vakantie. Alle communicatie is snel en open verlopen, een dag van tevoren is alles even doorgenomen om alles duidelijk te hebben. Tijdens de vakantie af en toe een update gekregen om te laten weten dat alles goed ging. Bij thuiskomst was alles netjes en waren de katten nog goed voorzien van voer en water, niks op aan te merken.

Rosalie heeft nu 2 keer voor ons opgepast. Ze is super betrouwbaar en flexibel. Ze luistert naar mijn wensen en vraagt wat Doerak fijn vindt. Ik krijg elke dag updates en foto's, wat super fijn is! Als we terug komen van vakantie zit er een relaxte kat op ons te wachten :)

Melanie was amazing. She updated us about the wellbeing of our cats twice a day with a detailed text and pictures. She was eager to meet up with us before we left and asked a lot of questions in how to best take care of our cats. She did a wonderful job and can only recommend her 100% and hire her again.

Cat Sitting Advice - FAQs
Is cat sitting or boarding in a cattery the right option for my cat?
Cats don’t like change, they don’t like to travel, and they don’t like sharing space with unfamiliar cats. Cat sitters will pay individual, tailored and loving attention to your cat or cats based on their preferences. Therefore, cat sitting is the best solution for most cats, and it’s also more convenient and less expensive for cat owners.

Will my cat forget me after two weeks away?
Cats can remember their owners for years after being separated from them. So rest assured when you return, your cat will remember who you are and your shared bond. To remind your cat of you while you’re away, leave them something with your smell, such as a piece of clothing. The scent will be reassuring to your cat, especially if they suffer from separation anxiety.
What is cat sitting?
A trusted cat lover will come and care for your cat every day, either with drop-in visits or by cat sitting overnight. A cat sitting visit includes feeding your cat, changing the water, cleaning the litter tray, playtime and cuddles. A cat sitter will also send you regular updates about your pet.
