The next step is the meet-and-greet. This is an informal meeting at your home so you (and your pets!) can get to know a potential sitter. You are invited to discuss your needs and expectations openly, and then decide whether you would like to proceed with a booking. The meet-and-greet is 100% cost and obligation-free and will be arranged for a time that suits you.

Experience with animals and own pets

I love animals! I always thought that I am a dog type of guy, as my dogs were always so to say my best friends, but over the last few years I have found that I love cats just as much.

We have 2 Jack Russell Terriers (Milo and Sasha) and 6 cats! We also have 2 fish tanks. To me, it is a pleasure and privilege to make sure my animal friends are well looked after.

We have 3 persian cats named Leo, Queenie and Sokkies. They are groomed regularly. We also have 3 cats resembling Toiger cats, but we are not sure to which breed they belong. Their names are Sandy, Tigger and Minx...We love our cats!!

I have experience in walking dogs and I have watched dogs and cats, as well as fish and birds in the past for my friends and family while they are on vacation...Hope to meet you soon!!
