I grew up with guinea pigs, a dog and a tortoise and stayed an animal lover all throughout my life, being surrounded with my flatmates' dogs and cats, as well as spending my time petsitting and dogwalking. I am equally skilled scratching dog butts in between long walks as I am lying on the ground blinking slooowly to make scared cats feel at ease.
I offer both dog walking and catsitting, and am always up for tug of war games or hiding stinky treats behind chair legs. I am also used to taking care of sick or old animals, giving them meds and eye drops for example. If you have a young and energetic dog that still has to learn a few basic skills or a nervous cat that requires a lot of patience, I will be able to adapt to their needs. You'll get regular updates and pictures of your fluffy baby/ies and can enjoy your holidays or be productive at work while I clean cat toilets or scoop up dog poop at the park. Your pet will be well taken care of!
I moved to Copenhagen with my partner for his job and would love to brighten my new life here with some furry love since our place doesn't allow pets. On an entirely selfish side, it would help me explore the city and get to know locals
:) I will only be able to communicate in English/German/French with you (and your pets), since my ability in understanding spoken Danish is quite limited.
I myself am working as a freelance designer and ceramicist from home and a local community stutio, so I am very flexible in organising my workload - one of my favourite ways to spend my lunch breaks is outside with a doggo ;)
Depending on your dog's physical abilities, I will spend something between 45min and 1h with them outside and/or playing and cuddling at home. I will always try to explore any nearby parks, where they will be able to run with me or have a lot of interesting smelly stuff to explore. With cats, I tend to spend 30-45min, depending on how interested they are in interacting with me. If your cat is not used to strangers, I will probably simply sit on the floor reading or singing to myself, if they are very playful, I will see how good they are at doing somersaults!
I also offer 2 visits/walks per day, in case you have a busy schedule and need a little bit more support and entertainment for your pet!
I am used to give topical or oral medicaments to pets and keep an eye on any kind of allergies/physical impairments etc. Please let me know about your pet's health status and don't forget to give me your vet's contact number as well.
If you have more exotic pets, such as snakes or spiders, please let me know in advance what kind of care your pet needs, so that I can assess if I am the right person to take over their care. I am not squeamish, and have held a bunch of reptiles and spiders before.
I do offer overnight care at your place, but I am very adamant at getting to know you and your pet first. Feel free to schedule at least one meetup beforehand.
If you are interested in me as your petsitter, I'd love to get to know you :)
Kan kun anbefale Mirjam. Håndtering og viden om katte kunne ligeså godt komme fra en professionel. God kommunikation.
This is my first time using a pet sitter for my cat Izzy and can only highly recommend Mirjam. Izzy loved her straight away during their meet & greet.
Mirjam has my highest recommendation if you need to travel and don’t have anyone in your network to take care of your pet.
I've taken care of family and friends' pets, as well as petsitting fluffballs, I have experience with rescue animals and have worked in a veterinary clinic and an animal park.
