Free cat sitting Basel City

For a limited time only, and only within easy biking distance of my apartment near Spalentor!

I miss my cat, so I'll hang out with yours for free. I'm only in Basel until early December.

Re: Free cat sitting Basel City

I don't have a cat at the moment but I just wanted to thank you for this kind and generous offer. I'm sure you'll have some kitty friends soon enough!

Or they're just making use of the Warming Pad I apparently got them

Thanks for the compliments, they are my gorgeous little guys indeed.

Let's make a plan. Come over for tea, beer and/or dinner. Let me know when is good for you. If you have trailing partner/s that's cool too. We all like company.

Re: Free cat sitting Basel City

Hi Laura,

Thanks for your post! It's so weird you were the first result that I clicked on when typing in 'cat sitter basel'. My wife Jo and I just got here from England a couple of months ago, and have a lovely siamese called Audrey. I will send you a photo of her when Jo shows me where they are! Anyway, we've been starting to worry about what to do when we're due to go away for a week in September, as she's very dear to us and all that. ANYWAY, if you would like to meet her and perhaps feed her for a few days that would be wonderful. Always good to meet new people too. We have a lovely loft apartment on efringerstrasse, about 10 mins on bike from you I guess.

Ok, hope to be in touch!

Mark (and Joanna)

Re: Free cat sitting Basel City

I'll extend the same offer in Zug!

I reserved two ridiculously cute ragdoll kittens a few weeks after my beloved cat of 10 years died of cancer then I found out I was leaving the country.

They are still in England and I go home frequently enough that (I think) they know who I am... they live with my boyfriend.

I would be happy to catsit in Zug area for free if anyone needs it.

Hello there !

There is a Basel Expats Cat Sitting Network started by Maudthecat I think! We also have a yahoo and a Facebook page.

There's a meeting tonight at Eo Ipso a bar in Gundeli starting at 7 pm as several of us live in this area of Basel.

Maybe see you there!

Re: Free cat sitting Basel City

Indeed, shamelessly started by me when I was a hausfrau and needed someone to sit my cats when I went on holiday

Am I allowed to post a link to our FB page? If so, it's here:

https://www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=146030149215

The yahoo group also exists (BaselExpatCatsittingNetwork) but I must confess I don't check it as often as I should...

Anyway, do please join if you want. There's a small core of us who regularly sit for each other. BruceFan has been very good at organising the meet-ups this summer. (Sadly I'm out tonight as am fighting a horrid summer cold. I seem to be nothing but ill/busy right now.)

Clearly I'm not spending enough time on the internet, since I only just read this. Cat Sitting Network ++ !

Happy to help out! I should be around in September, and I love having conversations with siamese cats.

Re: Free cat sitting Basel City

Well done Laura! I joined the pet sitting network thread on here because I too miss my little furry friend. I'm in Gundeli, Traubert, but I think Laura should get first dibs , but if she's busy let me know. I got a gig a few months ago, lovely cat up near Brausebad, and made a new friend with her owner. I found during the week it was hard to spend too much time with her after work, so a bit closer to Gundeli or en route between there and Wettstein would be better for the cat and for me - weekends pretty much anywhere in Basel-Stadt would be fine. I've requested to join the FB group Maudthecat, thanks for that, I didn't know it existed

Re: Free cat sitting Basel City

Thanks to those who have asked to join the FB group - can't access FB til I get home, but will accept you as soon as I can
(Unless BruceFan is set as an admin too? I may have done that).

Re: Free cat sitting Basel City

Hi Laura, et al.,

I'm also the owner of a (1/2) siamese. He has striking markings! His name is Leo and he's owned me for about 9 years now. Here's the problem, it seems that I am pretty allergic to him. My allergies have turned to asthma. In addition, I am spending more and more time away from Basel. This year will be especially bad. I just returned from two months away and will be turning around and spending about 3 1/2 weeks away again beginning Sep 8. I think he deserves a new home. Someone who is around and who can give him the cuddling he needs. He needs a home without other animals or young children. He likes to cuddle up on a lap while someone watches TV and to sleep close at night. He's a good hunter and is used to having access to the out of doors. I can find people to come feed him but I think he deserves better. Can anyone help? Know someone who could give him a good home?
