I speak Dutch, English and Greek fluently.
I grew up always having animals around (cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, tortoises…). Since leaving my hometown I’ve had this nagging feeling of something missing in my life. It makes me happy to provide a service that would mean a less stressful and even fun experience for the pets at their own home or in a safe environment!
Having a biologist as a father has for sure contributed to my pragmatic and natural treatment of animals. My goal is always to win the pet's trust first and put them at ease. I love animals of any kind and appreciate the pet's individual personality far more than their being a cat or a dog! I have never had any animal ever not come to me after a while. There have been various cases of pets allowing me to approach them even though they were thought to be very difficult with strangers.
I have experience with various kinds of dogs, from shelter to breeder and from big doggo to small pupper. My family has fostered dogs until they found a proper home. I have been an active part of the training process of those dogs throughout. Our own family dog is a major reason I always return to my parent's house every few weeks ;) I live near nature and several parks, so your dog will for sure be well-exercised from all the walking when you get him/her back!
My parents had two Persians when I was little and after a long no-cat period I have grown to love them once again. As a family we have had to bottle feed stray kitties a few times. Cats like me well enough to sit on me while I'm reading.
Thanks for reading and I hope that you will trust me with the care of your beloved pet! You can rest assured that I'll look after your pet accordingly and that upon return you'll find your pet happy, healthy and relaxed!
Miriam took a great care of our dog Dara for 10 days while we were abroad. We were getting regular updates about all the adventures Miriam and Dara went on during this time (apparently our dog now likes skateboarding :) ), so we could have the peace of mind that Dara is well taken care of and relaxed. A highly recommended sitter! Thanks for everything, Miriam! :)
My dog loved his time with Miriam! She was not only caring and attentive to his needs, but also very flexible with the booking. Highly recommended!
I have experience caring for rabbits and rodents, and exotic animals such as tortoises and lizards.
