About Benkela

Coucou! My name is Benkela, a venezuelan living in Brussels. After 5 years working as a cook, I decided to take a break and go back to study again. At the moment, I am a full time Dietetician student, meaning I can manage my own schedule, but basically my free time is on weekends and during the holidays. Weekdays as well, but under previous arrangement since my class schedule changes constantly. Feel free to contact me so we can check and try to work it out!

I grew up in a small venezuelan village with lots of open fields and green space, animals were naturally part of the landscape and thus, our home with dogs, cat, parrots, and of course the neighbor's chickens. Keeping the cat from chasing the chickens required pure ninja skills. Now in Brussels, my pet experience started by hosting a stray cat for few days, and from time to time, I keep my friend's pets while they are busy or away for a while.

I am available to check on those who stay home alone, or just need a walk around when their families are away or just busy with daily life. Single visits and walks can be 45-60 min long. If there's any special request, I am happy discuss it.

My preferences, small or medium dogs, cats, birds and why not some nice reptiles.

Benkela took care of our two cats for a week during the holiday period. We found our house in an impeccable state and communication with her was smooth throughout the week that helped put our minds to rest about the well-being of our cats. I can only recommend her.

Benkela has been amazing with our 2 cats, we highly recommend her service. She is a lovely, friendly person and a trustworthy cat sitter. Our two cats received all the care and attention they needed and the flat was very well kept as well! She also sent us daily updates (pics and videos). Definitely a five-stars service. Muchas gracias Benkela y hasta pronto!
