Coucou! My name is Benkela, a Venezuelan living in Brussels. After 5 years of 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 schedule, but basically my free time is on weekends and 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 used to keep my friend's pets while they were busy or away from home.
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 30-60min long (depends on the distance from my home). If there's any special request, I am happy to discuss it.
My preferences, small or medium dogs (max. 20kg) cats, birds, and why not some nice reptiles.
Benkela is a really reliable person who spends time at home taking care of your pet. She is not a « feed and go » kind of per sitter and she keeps the apartment tidy and clean. I strongly recommend her, and I will keep relying on her for future catsittings.
This Christmas we used pawshake for the first time whilst we were away for 10 days. Benkela stayed in our home with our kitties and was amazing. She kindly came to meet us two times before the stay which made us feel really comfortable. Everything whilst we were away went perfectly. She was amazing at keeping us updated and sending regular pictures. The kitties and the apartment were in perfect condition when we returned. It was the most relaxed I've ever been leaving them and I would definitely have Benkela come to stay with them again.
