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.

Extremely happy with Danielle, great contact before, during and after booking - including photos whilst we were away. Came home to very happy cats!

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.

The amount you can earn as a cat carer depends on the level of service you provide. Most cat sitters charge 8 - 15 £/€ for a once-daily home visit or 12 - 25 £/€ to drop in twice a day. Cat sitters usually charge 15 - 50 £/€ for overnight cat sitting stays. You can look after more than one household of cats at a time if they only need daily home visits. Many cat sitters also charge a little extra for additional services such as watering the plants. More expensive cat sitters tend to be the ones with more experience and who can administer medication.
