About this assignment

Looking for one reliable, mature, organized person with experience taking care of cats, fish in aquariums (or willing to learn,) and tending to indoor/balcony plants. Someone who is looking to work from home is ideal, spending time with our cats and of course enjoying the Stockholm area and nature around our place.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Cat care, fish feeding, indoor/balcony plant watering. The person is home every night and the cats are not alone for more 6-7 hours at a time. They are very sociable and thrive on playing and relaxing with you.

What are the good features of the property and location

Quiet neighborhood, nature and forests, supermarket, pizza, Thai and Indian food places, all 5 minutes walk from our home. Very easy access to Stockholm city by walking (30 minutes), or metro (10 minutes,).

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

Daily contact with me while I'm away is an important part of this housesit: meaning someone who will not hesitate to get in touch with me for any questions- I will always be available on Whatsapp. We will set up an information sheet with urgent contacts including a 24/7 animal hospital nearby. Keeping the routine steady for our pets is important and it keeps them happy. We walk one of our cats outside on a leash, the other one stays indoors always and sits on our balcony too, Even the fish know what time they expect their food flakes ;-)

Wonderful host

Visiting Jackie was like visiting a friend you know for ages. But of course I was new in town, so she picked me up at the central station, gave me a lot of hints for finding my way to the main attractions and hidden gems of Stockholm. The two cats were easy to please, even the walks with Denise are easy to manage. The fish tanks and plants are not too much work, they´re mainly relaxing. For any questions that should come up, Jackie is there for help you out, but there is a useful list on a memo board she leave in the kitchen and I got reminders via WhatsApp the first day of my stay to find my way into the routine. It is 15 min to ride to the city centre. Grocery, restaurants, and a lovely wood and the graveyard where Greta Garbo is buried in walking distance.

Adorable Cats!!

I had a very great time taking care of the cats, the fish and plants at Jackie's place. Denise and Alex,the cats, are just adorable! Denise loves her walks on the leash every day. It was my first experience walking a cat on the leash and I just loved it! Alex prefers to stay in and is very sweet. Taking care of the aquariums and the plants was also a very nice new experience.Christian and Jackie keep it very organized and very well taken care of. They are a very nice couple.They gave me all the info I needed about how to take care of everything, about the beautiful city and I was very welcome in their place.I hope to see them again some day and I do recommend them.Thank you for the opportunity Jackie and Chris!

Cozy Cat-Home

I can highly recommand Jackie and her Cats as your next Sit. They are lovely and since the first minute you feel close to them. It's so nice there - very hard to go outside, even though you will fall in love with Stcokholm. You are kind of out of the town at a peaceful area, but it's a short way to get to the city center. This trip/Host should be on your list!

Very good catsit with 2 lovely cats

This catsit was very well with 2 lovely and adorable cats, Denise and Alex in Stockolm. I I also looked after 4 tanks of fishes, turtles, salamanders…., it was the first time for me but it was easy to do. Jackie was a very nice person too, she came to pick me up at the train station and then explained me everything about the cats, the tanks and also about the flat, the city, the metro… and when she left, she was always here to answer my questions if I had any on Whatsapp..I spent almost 2 weeks in Stockolm with a nice weather and I really recommand this catsit. Thank you Jackie

Two delightful cats and fascinating aquariums

I was Jackie's first house sitter so she was understandably concerned about the care I was able to provide. Having been through the process I am sure she will be less nervous the next time. I enjoyed looking after Denise and Sunny. Denise is a little princess and Sunny is full of mischief but very affectionate. I found them easy cats to manage. It was my first experience with aquariums and I found them fascinating. Jackie was very generous in ensuring I would be comfortable and provided me with a travel card so I could explore the centre of Stockholm. She also set up chrome cast and HBO so I had plenty of entertainment on hand. The apartment is outside the centre in a quiet urban area but an easy train ride to the city. It is a couple of minutes walk to the local supermarket and has a few good eating places.
