cat (and dog) lover tries to travel smart!
Posted December 16th, 2012 - 1:37 am by from Brussels, Belgium (Permalink)
I sold my house and my car last year to take a sabbatical year, and I am recently pre-retired, which means I can continue traveling all around the world...I just LOVE meeting all those wonderful people and see these beautiful places! I think I am the most happy homeless person in the world! ;-)

However, why not combine the traveling with being useful to someone? I am used to be with cats and dogs, fish can do, maybe chicken ;-)... If you need someone to take care of your "best friend" just let me know! I love to do long walks, to draw and do watercolors, and to play with dog or cat ;-)

I can stay 2 weeks or 2 months or even more, anywhere which can be reached by public transportation (I have no car, remember?)

I am very very flexible, I just have to know things well in advance to plan, that's all!

Hoping to hearing from you soon!! Isabelle

Hi Isabelle!

Ich bin in der Schweiz, wir haben gleich vor der Tuer den Schilift und die Berge.
ich habe einen suessen Kater, der sehr anhaenglich ist und moechte ueber Weihnachten und Neujahr zu meinen Eltern fahren. Ich plane derzeit, ihn mitzunehmen, aber wenn ich jemanden haette, der bei uns bleibt, waere das auch fuer ihn besser.

Der Ort heisst Emmetten und ist ungefaher 20 min von Luzern am Vierwaldstaettersee.

Melde dich, wenn du eine Moeglichkeit siehst ...

Liebe Gruesse

Hello Jutta,
mein Deutsch ist nicht so gut, so ich darf in English fortsetzen ;-) (last word was found with google translate ;-)

Oh I am sorry, I am in the USA until beginning of March! So I am a little too far to come to take care of your lovely cat, I am so sorry for that!

I hope you will find someone! I have a friend who does pet sitting and is on CS, she is listed in my CS friends, Pascale VdV... maybe she can help you!!

I am really sorry!

Ich wünsche Ihnen ein frohes Weihnachtsfest!

Dear Isabelle!
thanks for your reply,
Merry Christmas to you in the US.

I will try to find your friend - maybe you can tell her about me.

Let me know when you come back and feel like spending some time in Switzerland. I always have to travel here and there and would be happy to have someone who likes cats to become friends with.

Many regards

Hello Jutta,
I will return from the USA beginning of march. I need to be in Belgium from april 21 to may 2nd, then have nothing fixed yet. Maybe a dog sitting in Ireland May-June, but not confirmed, maybe some cat sitting in Austria from september on, but not confirmed. July and August nothing planned, yet ;-)
So, all is open! And I would love to help you and take care of your nice little cat ;-)
If some dates interest you, just let me know!
maybe easier through regular email?

have a nice day, and frohe Weihnachten!
