About Martina

Hi Berliners,

my name is Martina, I am Italian, class 1990, based in Berlin since 2018. I live in Franfurter Allee, together with my boyfriend and our red cat Theo who is my joy (the cat, not the boyfriend of course :P). I work mainly from home, for Zalando, and my cat makes me a lot of company the whole day (and night by not letting me sleep). My entire life in Italy was marked by pets: I had cats since I was a child and in the past 15 years our 3rd sister has been Lola, the sweetest dog in the world who I miss everyday. Plus, my "human sister" and borhter in law have an old cat boy, Dostoevsky, who is not so sweet, but love is love ;)

I am huge fan of the animal world - and I don´t joke when I say sometimes I prefer animals than human beings - and if I would have the possibility and I would definitely increase the family. Nevertheless, as most of you, I am an expath and I have to deal with several difficulties when I have to leave my baby boy. So I really believe and support the figure of the petsitter and a couple of years ago I decided to offer myself for helping parents who need someone to take care of their pets.

I am quite flexible with the timing, as long as I am not far away from the house to visit and I know the schedule in advance. I would prefer early morning and late afternoon/evening as shifts, but this can be define with the pet´s owner, based on the needs. 

I am already helping other expaths who live around me to take care of their pets when it is needed and it is first of all a pleasure: to not leave the pet alone and to make the parents calm and happy.

I am very experienced on how to deal with cats who live in apartements, and I love play with them, cuddle (I could continue forever), brush their hairs and get familiar with their typeface. We all know, each pet is unique and everyday is a discovery with them. I can give medicaments if the pet is ok with it, but i always check first with the owners to guarantee the service. I provide daily update, photos, videos and keep the flat as much clean as possible. I am also aware of the importance of keeping the environment safe: I check windows are closed, all dangerous gods hidden from the little fellow and, as long as the owner says something different, leave the doors open to leave more space to walk. I also believe is important to inform the neighbours about my presence, if they will suddenly start seeing me coming to home. I water plants too if needed.

I am Italian mother tounge, I fluently speak English and Spanish, good French, a bit of German. I am covid vaccinated, normally work from home, and I use my bike to move around the city. I am very talkative and responsive via phone and email and familiar on how to manage and keep the house clean. I would be more than happy to have further discussion via phone and/or in person to better understand your expectations and needs. 

I look forward to hearing from you, do not hesitate to ask if you have questions and thank you if you will decide to trust on me.

Cheers,

Martina

Martina is an experienced and reliable cat sitter who really enjoyed caring for our two tomcats over the weekend. She played a lot with our Leo and she also bonded with our shy Karli. We can thoroughly recommend her and have already booked her again for a longer period in August.

What can I do for your furry friend. - Feeding: I follow your instructions about your pet dietary habits and make sure is correctly eating with the recurrence needed, with the amount required and I change the water anytime I visit (fresh water is a must have). - Beauty and toilet: I take care of your car litter and clean it daily and I walk your dog outside and recover the “gifts”. If your pets have long hairs and are ok, I can brush them with attention and caring. Cleaning the mouth and nose if needed is possible, but only if the animal feels comfy. I also monitor the pet behavior and let you know if I notice something unusual. It would be great if you leave the vet details and in case of emergency I can bring the pet for you, according to your request. - Playing: I remain at your place at least 30/45 min to make sure your four-legged friend plays and gets distracted. I imagine being alone all day how sad and stressful could be, so being a nice distraction once/twice per day is a pleasure. - Walking: I walk your dog outside, chose green areas if available and, if you and the dog are ok with it, I can go to some dog areas to let him/her run and play. But as any pet is different, I will collect your input about habits and relationships with other dogs to make all comfy. I prefer walk one dog at a time, or at most two if they live together, for 45-60 min. - Pictures/update: I send you pictures and video, as well as update on how your fellows feel, so you can enjoy the time off with the awareness everything is going well. - I can wash your plants if you stay away for a longer period, open the windows to change the air and other small needs you can tell me (e.g. collect your mail/packages from neighbors).
