About this sitter

Hi
We are a non-smoking couple in our fifties. We adore cats and love to take care of one or more. We've had cats all our lives. But since our last one died May 2014 we decided not to have another one. That way travelling is easier, but we do miss them!

Why they want to house sit

In the summer of 2014 we heard about these pet schemes for the first time. Friends of us have been doing this for the last 10 years and were so enthousiastic about it that we wanted to do this too. Only 2 weeks later we were on our first assignment and we loved it! Since then we have been pet sitting cats, dogs, fish, goats, chickens, guinea-pigs and a tortoise. 4 people already asked us back for second time sitting. This way we can still take care of cats and visit another city at the same time. Perfect combination for us.
Staying in someones house is so much more comfortable than a hotel.

Their experience

We have a lot of cat caring experience. We've had cats all our lives. Our last cat was very ill and had to be given medication and had various operations after being run down by a car. So even if your cat needs extra care, we can provide.

What can they bring to the assignment

We will make your house look occupied, water your plants, take care of the mail and fill your fridge if needed when you come back.
We are quiet and tidy.

Well organised home and cherised cat

Sylvia and Toine spent a week in our house. Sylvia took the opportunity to reorganise our pantry (and did discover some out of date cans!). Our cat Bessie was wel cared for. They mowed the lawn. It was a pleasure to come back in a tidy home. Erik and Han

Very friendly and takes very good care of cats and house

Sylvia obviously loves cats and takes very good care of them. Even as the cats didn't always use the litter box she didn't complain. I came home in an apartment cleaner than I left it. Even taking care of things that I left overdue like windows, refrigerator, ... She is very friendly and sociable which was appreciated by my neighbor.

Great petsitters who brought the doggy on adventures and kept the house clean!

Slyvia and Toine came to stay with us and planend a whole vacation around our housesit. They kept in good contact over Skype and sent us a lot of pet photos. They brought our dog out on a bunch of adventures - which he and us really appreciated - and sent us a bunch of cute photos of him enjoying himself. When we came home, they had left us sweets and the house was clean and tidy. They even did a little laundry! They followed all our directions and we had no problems at all. They are welcome back any time and are great sitters!

Hurry and choose Sylvia & Toine

Sylvia and Toine traveled all the way to Dallas to care for our home and pets while we traveled to Nicaragua for two weeks in the spring of 2016. We were so very lucky to get them! Our home and pets were in perfect condition when we arrived back, as was our car which we had left for their use. We have a 12 year old full size dog, and a cat. They walked our dog daily and kept up with the feeding and left the cat box clean! Sylvia and Toine are very self sufficient and managed with only a short instruction sheet and about 5 minutes of face to face time! Our advice: Book them NOW!
