About Tamara

As an experienced cat sitter (30 catsits for 17 hosts) and a cat-mom of 30+ years I completely understand that cat owners want their companions well looked after when they are away from home. I feel that having responsible sitter care for them in their familiar environment is among the best of options. A loving presence and maintaining your cat's routines will help to ease possible separation pains. For me, cat care involves:

  • basic needs: food, water and a clean litter-box
  • companionship: cuddles, playtime, brushing
  • security: making sure your cat doesn't escape through an open door or window
  • if necessary: giving medication, using pheromone diffusers, vet visits
I have had the pleasure to do 30 catsits for 17 hosts on other sites since I started sitting in 2017. Please don't hesitate to ask me for my previous host's references.

I am familiar with caring for:

  • cats with eye inflammation, heart, thyroid, pancreas and brain tumour conditions, surgery aftercare needs and end of life situations
  • multi-cat households: giving different kinds of food in food dispensers or in different rooms, or making sure that everyone always has access to their favourite hiding space to avoid possible tension
  • European domestic cats, Norwegian Forest, Abyssinian, Bengal, Bombay and Burmese cats.
In preparation of a sit I would ask you to tell me all I need to know to keep up your cat's routine during your absence. After 24 hours in your home, I would send you a detailed first update describing your cat's behaviour. This way you will be able to assess your companion's level of adaptation to the new situation and to me. As for the rest of my sit, I would send emails/WhatsApp messages and photos at regular intervals so you are always up to date about the situation at home.

Of course, I would also water your plants, collect your mail and leave your home as neat and clean as I found it (or better).

A little bit about me: I am 60 years old, German and work as a translator, always from home. So I would be present much of the time and delighted to give your cat much attention and playtime. I don't smoke and I would travel alone.

My home is in Berlin but I am often in Luxemburg city and always happy to cat and housesit there.

I speak German, English and French.
