About Jakob

Hi! I'm 21 years old and a master's student in psychology at the LSE. I was raised with cats and smaller pets all around me, and I miss all of them terribly. Since I'm not in a position to have a pet myself, pet-sitting is the next best option to fill the fur-shaped hole in my heart! 

I'm very experienced in cat care and used to cats with different temperaments, from cuddly and clingy to distant and a little contentious. All ages and all sizes are welcome. My childhood cat, Ginny, is a sweet old lady now, so I'm well-versed in adminstering oral medication. I'm also experienced in feeding, grooming, playing, emptying litter boxes, or even walking your cats if they are into that. 

I'm also familiar with small rodent care as I kept rats for several years. Once again, I'm happy to feed, play, administer oral medication, supervise free roaming time, and, for a small extra fee, do a full cage clean. 

I have never kept a dog myself, but I have done dog sitting jobs before and used to walk the dogs at my local shelter. I feel confident to cover basic care, including feeding, walking, and grooming. However, I'm not experienced administering medication to dogs and would feel more comfortable with small to medium sized dogs with a relatively calm temperament. 

When it comes to exotic pets, I have never kept them myself, but I would like to change that in the future, so have done quite a bit of research on aquatic and reptile care. I'm confident that I could master basic care with the right instructions.

Jakob is lovely. I feel very lucky to have found a person I can rely on to watch after my kitty when I’m travelling.

I highly recommend Jakobs services.
