My name is Irene and I just moved to Edinburgh for my studies.
I love animals and enjoy working and learning with them.
I've always had cats back at home, in Brussels, and now I also live with a cat in my apartment in Edinburgh. I've been working as a petsitter with Pawshake in Brussels for almost 4 years, so I have lots of experience.
In 2015, I went to do some voluntary work in an animal sanctuary in South Africa, at a place called Glen Afric.
In the sanctuary, my tasks consisted mainly of constructing and cleaning the enclosures of the animals, such as leopards and lions, feeding them, grooming and walking the horses, walking the elephants, training the young lions... And many other rewarding activities in an environment of love and protection.
Through this wonderful experience, I learned to understand animals' needs and desires better in order to maintain a good relationship with them.
What I offer here is taking care of your pets when you're not there. This means I come to your place and I stay for a few hours, depending on your pets' needs, to feed them, take care of the cat's litter, or walk the dogs, and most importantly, play with them and give them all of my attention so they feel safe and loved in my company ! And if need be, I can also stay overnight so they feel less lonely.
Last but not least, in order to make you feel comfortable too, I will keep you regularly updated about your pet by sending you you messages and photos/videos of them :)
Hoping to meet you and your pet ! x
Very nice pet sitter. Kept us informed. We highly recommend.
Un tout grand merci, Irène ! J'ai énormément apprécié d'avoir à chaque visite des nouvelles et des photos et de voir mon chat si relax avec toi. Et quelle belle surprise de te trouver à mon retour et de lire dans les yeux de Fudgy tout l'amour et la reconnaissance qu'il te porte! Tu as pris soin de lui au-delà de mes espérances et nous comptons sur toi la prochaine fois! Merci de nous 2!!
