About Me

I am Anat, Israeli in origin, and in the last eight years I'm based in Prague, Czech Republic. I dreamt of living in Europe so I followed my dream, and moved to Prague with my family back in This beautiful city is amazing, and I love very much living there. I speak Czech quiet well.  

I have two sons, 24 and 28 years old, they are both software developers. I am very proud of them. Now both of them rent their own apartments, so it's time for me to explore the world with pet sitting. 

I studied History of Art  and I run a translation and editing agency for over thirty years. Now I'm doing a career shift to technology.   

I sing in a Czech choir and I love to explore new places, culture, art, history, and meet new and inspiring people.   

Before I moved to Prague I also sang Baroque and early music. In Prague we perform with the choir in the most beautiful concert halls and churches. I also like to learn new languages, and very communicative and open. I love to take new challenges and I'm very optimistic person.

I don't smoke. I'm looking to house sit and pet sit in order to explore new places. I take good care of the house and facilities, and I put a lot of love in everything I do.

Why I Want to House Sit

I would like to explore new places and cultures. I need wi-fi to continue my work remotely and I don't have a car, so if I can use the owner's car, that will be great (if that's neccessary of course). I love nature and I really love also the city life.

My Experience

I'm very experienced in house sitting and pet sitting. I love cats and dogs and I treat them with a lot of love. I used to have a cat for ten years, and when I was a child I used to have a dog and a rabbit. I did a lot of house sitting and pet sitting during the Covid year, since I was "stuck" in Israel for a long period.

I have experience with giving pills and sirop to a cat and I'm not afraid of giving any medicine to the pet. 

When I did pet sitting in Israel during the Covid year, I was in constant communications with the owners of the pet and/or house. I sent photos, reports about the pet's behavior, and I made the owners very happy. For example there was Riki, with three amazing cats, who flew to New York to visit her grandchildren. She always wrote to me: "you are amazing. I feel so relaxed to know that you take care of my babies… I'm so happy that you take care of them". One of the cats had to take medicine twice a day, and it all went very well.

Another example was Tommi, the dog that I took care of. He was very frightening at first, he was scared of strangers, but after one day he was my best friend, came to my bed and got many cuddles and hugs. I was a little bit afraid before I met the dog, since it was abused in the past and the owner told me that it takes time to get used to him, but in the end all went well and he was very cute.

What Can I Bring to the Assignment?

I am very reliable, quiet, gentle, clean, loving life and people, I work from home so I will secure your house and pet. I will bring a lot of love to your pets and I will keep you constantly updated. When you return home you will be very pleased and happy.

* I am living in Prague, but I can fly or go by bus/train. I come alone, and if it suits the owners, sometimes a friend or one of my sons may join me for part of the period.

Great pet sitter! Anat was really understandable about our needs relating to the house and the cats. One of them is 18 years old and takes medicine twice a day therefore, we were especially concerned about leaving him for two weeks.

Anat arrived two days before our trip which gave us enough time to go through the details on the house and on each cat's needs.

She was always available to talk to and gave us many updates on the cats' daily activities. She contacted us to clear doubts and it helped us to relax and enjoy our time away.

Anat is caring and attentive which makes her a perfect pet sitter.

“ Lovely caretaker ”

Pet_Hug (Anat) was a pleasure to have in our home. She arrived a day early to make sure our nervous dog had sufficient time to adapt to her presence. She was warm, conscientious and very attentive to both our home and our dog's needs. 

During our absence, she sent me pictures to keep us updated on our dog and home. She was very respectful of our home and left everything tidy and organized when she left.

Truly enjoyed our last dinner together when she relayed all of her Paris adventures with our dog and visiting the city.

Highly recommended house/dog sitter!
