I am dutch. Single, female, 71 years old. I live in the centre of Amsterdam. I love cats and dogs. I speak french, english and some german. As I am retired I have the time to travel and mind your home and your cats and dogs or other animals.
I am a caring, responsible person. Non smoker. I do not have a car. I do not have a driving licence...
I love cats (and dogs). I like to go abroad and meet other people. Minding the house and pets for someone is a great way to be of help and to have a good experience myself. I could do some gardening and watering plants and other things... So far petsitting has been a great experience for me.
Yes, I am. I had two cats myself. When I had cats I sometimes had someone to look after my cats and I looked after cats in exchange. In june 2017 I looked after a cat and dog in Paris for a long weekend.They asked me again several times. Together with my sister I looked after 3 cats and one dog in Bergerac – France and I came back nine times - one time with my sister and the other times alone- I made several friends there. I looked after a lovely dog and two cats in Edinburgh in May 2018 and I also minded a cat in Portugal (February and April 2018, in 2021 and in 2022. In August 2018 and 2019 I looked after two cats in Spain. In January 2019 I looked after a cat in Wales. Also petsitting in Nice (cat) and Mérignac (Bordeaux) - several times (2 cats and one dog). I also minded a sweet cat in Rillieux-la-Pape (Lyon) two times, three times two cats in Montélimar, once two cats in Brussels and once a cat in Marseille,
twice two cats in Antwerp . I also walked a dog in Amsterdam two/three times a week for a friend who was ill. I looked after a dog, cat and two poneys for a friend In France. I also minded three times a lovely dog in Tours (France) and I looked after a small dog in Siorac-en-Perigord. I also took care of cats in the Netherlands: one cat in Hilversum (2 times) and 2 cats in Haarlem and a cat plus dog in Haarlem. I minded a cat in Rotterdam and two in Amsterdam as well. Not finished yet: cats in England (3 different addresses) in 2021 and 2022. So far I loved it and I had an excellent experience. Most of the petsitting was by MindMyHouse. I also minded a cat in Paris by Nomador.
You can rely on me. I am a responsible person. I am friendly, tidy.

Wonderful lady and cat sitter!
Willy was taking care of our 2 cats and in December 2021. She is a very reliable and organized person and our cats enjoyed her company for 2 weeks. She kept our apartment clean and tidy, and we were in contact every day. She is a wonderful lady and very easy to communicate with. We highly recommend her as a pet sitter and looking forward to seeing her again. Willy will always be welcomed in our home and our cats would be very happy to see her too :)

Willy came to stay for a week and it all went very well from our side. Willy was easy-going and friendly, clearly capable of looking after our house and favourite dog with her experience and attention and good care. We are grateful to her for taking care of everything while we were away and would not hesitate to invite her again if the occasion were to arise..

Friendly and excellent petsitter
Willy is very friendly so it was a pleasant contact from the start. She let me know everything was fine during the petsit. Both my cats were very relaxed when I came home which is a relief because they are shy and easily stressed. And she left my apartment clean and tidy, always a nice home-coming.

Our cat loved Willy's gentle nature
Willy came and looked after our cat, Pixie, for two 11-day periods during the summer of 2021, and we were delighted with how things went. Willy is very organised and all her travel arrangements from the Netherlands went smoothly. Pixie is a nervous cat and often runs away and hides when new people enter the house, but Willy has a lovely quiet manner and Pixie clearly felt relaxed with her and very soon they were good friends. Willy loves cats - and Pixie could tell! When we were away Willy sent us regular updates and photographs to let us know that Pixie was OK which was very reassuring for us. When we returned home the house was beautifully clean and tidy and Pixie was relaxed and happy. We are hoping that Willy will come to look after Pixie again and we highly recommend her.

Willy the wonderful
Willy is everything you want in a cat sitter (at least this has been our experience, I'm sure other animals are equally bless to have her). Willy is bright, fun, caring, understands the needs of the pets owners. The real deal. Very approachable and her heart is in the right place. thank you Willy. Hope to see you soon. Gary & Alex

A friend for life for our tiny chihuahua Luna!
We can not thank Willy enough for coming to sit for our chihuahua Luna! We had a the pleasure of spending the first night together to meet her before we headed off which was a real treat and we enjoyed having the chance to get to know Willy a little. We had daily updates and photographs about Luna and nothing was too much for Willy who we wouldn’t hesitate to welcome back and do hope she’ll come again one day. A true best friend for life for Luna who I’m sure will miss Willy after 2 weeks together as pals! Truly cannot say enough kind words, thank you again.

Willy will be still the wellcome, with the 4 legs wide open
Willy est très sympathique et a été très attentionnée avec mon chat. Chaque jour un message me donnait des nouvelles de Ramses. Au vue du contexte, les dates de mes vacances ont été modifiées par 2 fois, et elle s'est adaptée. Je la recommande chaleureusement et en confiance ! J'espère que nous aurons l'occasion de nous recroiser.

Friendly, Reliable, Tidy and Organised
Willy was an unbelievable housesitter. Even before she arrived, Willy was flexible and cheerful about changing arrival arrangements. On arrival and after, Willy kept me informed and up-to-date about the house and my cat, Gary. I appreciated the regular messages and photos which were most reassuring. She took care of the house beautifully, leaving it extremely clean and tidy. Although Gary doesn't present any special difficulties of course he has his habits and quirks and needs. Willy seemed to understand and catered to them all. I arrived to find a healthy and happy cat, but not so happy he didn't miss me! I think.
Jeanne, France, 28 October, 2019
Willy is the best. She was clean and neat, and i could tell that she really loved my animals and vice-versa, and she took good care of them. I got quick updates every day, and she sent photos throughout the week as well. I would welcome Willy back at any time.
Holly, France, 28 March, 2019
Willy was a lovely lady and took good care of my house and my cat Missy. Really appreciated the updates she sent me.

The Amsterdam´s Mary Poppins! ;-)
Willy was like Mary Poppins for us and our kittens. She is very nice, kind, reliable, honest, respectly and all positive adjectives of the diccionary are perfect for her.. We´d leaved our mind in peace in our trip because she´ve sent us photos everyday and our cats looked very calm and happy. When we returned home, it was very clean and our fridge has more food than we leaved in home before our trip :-) She is the perfect house sitter, a friend already an someone very important for us now. Thanks you Willy, for your frienship and harmony! See you soon!!

Lovely, kind house sitter
Willy was wonderful with my animals, so much so I don’t think they really missed. Everything was well looked after and it was lovely meeting Willy after my trip away and having dinner cooked for me too. Thank you so much for taking good care of my animals (fur family) and home. I would have you come stay anytime.

The sweetest house sit you can imagine
Willy was already 2 times housesitting at my place. you can fully trust on her. She is the sweetest person and I have already asked her again to come for a next house sit at the end of the year. I couldn't find anyone better. I found the house nice and clean with lots of good stuff in the fridge as a bonus. my cat, Missy who is normaly so incredibly shy, was already on her lap the second day. I almost couldn't believe when she told me... I received some pictures of the cat once and a while what was very nice because I missed her and it reassured me that everything was ok. Don't look any further...this is your catsit!

A wonderful, caring lady
Christmas 2017 I entrusted my house and 4 pets to willy’s capable hands and flew to the north of Finland for 3 weeks. With 3 cats and a Jack Russell she had plenty to do. I received emails and photos telling me how things were going. Upon my return I found the house immaculate and very peaceful pets cuddling on her lap. She had even prepared a vegetarian supper for me! I was so impressed that she is returning next week . I know that all will be well, she is a perfect pet sitter.
