About Carrie

Hey I'm Carrie! and I can honestly say that I spent more time with animals than humans in my lifetime. 🤭🤍 And I'll stay with your pet(s) min. 1 hr during every visit - not just 30 min!🥲 unless specifically requested. I am a caretaker, trainer, animal companion, more than just a sitter who refills food. I would never set a timer for animals, I'll be there as needed and based on how the interaction is progressing.

In over 2 decades I lived with and cared for a variety of species in all stages of life - from babies to sadly terminally ill. I have a lot of love and care for animals, innately.

I have trained both dogs and cats - but cats take years of ongoing work so don't expect miracles in a booking. 😁

I'm happy to commute all over Berlin for your lovable pet(s) if the timing is convenient. 🚲

I'll talk to them in EN 🇺🇸, oder DE 🇩🇪, o ES 🇪🇸 - and to you too of course, if you prefer.

I now live with two adorably different cats that initially had other owners. 🐈 🐈‍⬛

Services:

30 min or 2x30min Pawshake Option (but really as much as it's needed): 30 min is pretty unrealistic and quite frankly heartbreaking 💔 : I would at the very least:

  • clean their bowls (+ if litter box, pad)
  • clean play areas, apartment areas, etc. - YES, I LOVE keeping your home clean
  • replace or refill dry and/or wet food
  • give treats (if)
  • play with them and/or exercise their daily training routine
  • take them out for walks or toilet breaks (if)
  • or just do the tasks quietly if they are shy
  • photos and videos will be provided, at least 10-15 items on average plus message updates as soon as I enter your flat, for the entire duration
  • video calls are an option too (of course you can have your pet cam on the whole time too)
  • 🚨 Please book 2x visit a day if you need 1 long visit of up to 4-5 hrs depending on location, otherwise pick 24hr house sitting for very long visits e.g. half day🚨
  • 24hr house sitting: this would require at least 🚨 4 hrs every 24 hrs for myself out of your enclosed area for this to work for everyone. :) I cannot actually be there nonstop if that is what is required.

    • I mostly offer max. 3 days of house sitting in a row and in my area so do enquire about this service in advance to see if it is indeed a time of the week when I can house sit - I might be available more or less days at different times and in different areas of Berlin.
    • I also offer free animal photography of your pet(s) if you wish (I just want to grow my animal photography portfolio with any pets of any ages and breeds just doing their regular thing, everyday natural fun and play or chilling 🦥)

      • Message if interested and this can be done whilst I visit your pets or we all meet another time. 📷 🖤
      • I'm more than happy to meet in person before booking, or offer any more info that you might need. I know how anxious this process can be. I'll hop on my bike and visit you right away. 🤗 🐱 

        And why plants? 🪴 

        Before Zinty (cat no. 1) joined the family, plants were my babies. I had over 100 plants in and outdoor and regularly grew fruit and vegetable on my terrace.

        Now we have a few less plants but I still put the same passion into taking care of them. I am a real plant lover and observer, I've grown pretty much everything based on instinct. I am also happy to look after your plants according to their needs.

        Love, Carrie

        🖤

        It’s been a pleasure to cooperate with Carrie. She looked after my cat several times already during my vacation and every time it went really smooth! She diligently sends photos and promptly responds to every request. Thank you!

        Familiar with dog training techniques
        Where it all started 🐕 🐹 🐠 🐰 🦜 🐔 🦆  I grew up with different indoor and outdoor animals. I enjoyed dogs the most, but we also had fish, rabbits, other small rodents, birds of different kinds. I was really close with every dog we ever lived with - definitely my best friends. I have always described myself as a dog person. But life happened and I really missed living with animals after having moved a lot so I decided to fill my home with one animal at a time. I did not feel like I can offer a dog everything that they need at that time and so I adopted my first cat - and of course a second one followed 6 months after that and my family became complete. 🐈‍⬛ 
 Before adopting my two cats I had spent longer periods of time with various cats: from dog-like friendly and active to real hermit shy cats. I catsat my mom's new (at that time) wilder domestic outgoing cat and she regularly brought me dead birds by my window. Aww. ? I am used to different types of cats but nothing really prepared me like living with two adorably different cats of my own. 
 I'm comfortable with more challenging outdoor cats too if that's what their routine is and as long as they have behaved the same in similar situations with both you and other strangers - but the risks really have to be minimum so we can both be at peace that your little adventurous fluff ball will be safe when you're away. :)
