For Cats, Dogs and Love
My name is Maria
My team and I are here to help you balance your everyday life with your pets. If you want to go for vacation, a business trip or a long weekend we are here to give you an alternative solution instead of putting your pets in a cage.
The philosophy behind "For Cats, Dogs, and Love" is to provide excellent care for your pets and a peace of mind for you, knowing that your family member with paws is in good hands while you are away.
It wasn't a spontaneous decision to run my own Pet Sitting Service, this was something that has been on my mind for years and I gradually developed a life path change towards this move! My love for animals has and always will be a massive part of my life; I can't imagine my life without them.
I became fully aware of my passion towards animals with my first pet, the love I could share and the ability to call them FAMILY. I am forever grateful for this life-changing lesson.
A couple of years ago I gave a promise to myself, to help as many pets as I can stay in the comfort of their home, especially if the pets are old and need of medication, while their parents can take a break from their everyday life.
For Cats Dogs and Love was created out of my love and passion for my own pets, especially for my old Labrador Kaza. Every time I went on a vacation I wanted to find someone, someone like me, to take care of them. So now, the joy I get by helping pet parents enjoy their vacations or a work day while their pups enjoy my or my team’s company and cuddles is something magical
LOVE rules my actions; however, I am a good example when it comes to dedication to work, loyalty and enthusiasm. My professional volley-ball past has been a great help when it comes to coordination, stamina and punctuality and my BA in Marketing helped me in understanding, developing and taking the correct steps to improve my services.
I completed my diploma on “Dog Psychology and Behaviour Modification” and I am a vegetarian for all the right reasons.
We are pet parents and we know... that’s why we are here for you.
Our team was built to offer you a professional experience for both, humans and their pets.
Leaving for vacation or leaving for a workday should never leave you or your pets anxious or nervous.
We are here to balance your everyday life with your pets.
Our pet professional team is without a doubt the heart and soul of For Cats, Dogs and love Pet sitting and Dog walking services.

Let’s take a second to get to know one of our fabulous pet professional!
I have had pets since I was born, cats, dogs, rabbits, birds and turtles. I love them so much and this is the reason I choose to be more involved with pet sitting and dog walking. It’s my life.
I can't imagine my life without having dogs and cats around me! Right now, I have a Jack Russell and 15 cats in the yard. I love cuddling with them, playing, going for walks and taking care of them!
I have studied Business administration and Marketing management and outside Cats and Dogs I run my own company dealing with event planning and chocolates!
Except of taking care of animals I love cooking, reading books, travelling and gardening.
What I love most about working for Cats and Dogs is the love and affection you take back, the gratification you earn from taking care of the cats and dogs, the unique relationship that you build with them and of course the peace of mind you offer to the pet parent while they are away. It is a unique feeling!
Jessie is the newest pet professional in our pack. Jessie does dog walks and we love having this smiley face in our team.
Let’s get to know a little bit more about her!
I am originally from Belgium but I have been living in Cyprus for over 5 years. I own a German shepherd mix, Gadjo, which I rescued from a beach when he was 2 months old and he was on his own.
I have always lived with a dog from the age of 4 and I love having a dog around.
I love cats, dogs, rabbits, fish and insects!!! From the moment I spend some time with another creature I get used to them and I find all of them interesting in their own way.
I have done many types of jobs in my life but working for cats dogs and love is one of the most rewarding jobs I’ve ever had. The relationship you built with the owners, the trust and the love you receive from them and their pets is so precious!
In my free time I like to be active and go on hikes, swimming and running. I like discovering Cyprus so I will often be like a tourist exploring the country.
The nicest part of being a dog walker is that you get to spend time getting to know each individual dog because you become part of their routine. They are always happy to see you and even when you have a bad day, they bring you joy and make you smile in the end. Being around animals is extremely satisfying and I feel really lucky to be part of their life.

Bogi joined our team 5 months ago and we couldn’t be happier for this. Bogi does puppy care, dog walks and pet sits
Here’s a little more about our Miss Puppy professional
From an early age my parents would let me keep pets as long as I took care of them.
I come from a little village in Hungary. I grew up in a household where many animals were running around all the time. From dogs and cats to parrots, guinea pigs, even a tarantula, and of course all the farm animals you can imagine. My whole family loves them. People would often come to us when (unfortunately) they got tired of their pets; we rescued them, took care of them, and tried our best to find them new loving homes.
I started learning about animals, their diets, enclosures and behaviours and since then I haven't stopped. In the future I would love to educate more people on pet care.
What I love more working For Cats, Dogs and love is that playing, walking and training dogs on a daily basis feels more like a dream come true than a job to me.
With years of experience I know how much effort, work and love goes into having our beloved animals in their healthiest and happiest. This is why my favourite thing about working with dogs is being able to make a pup happy and comfortable while their human is away! I know I would want my pup to have as much fun and get as many cuddles.
At the moment I have my own Lab-mix pup named Castiel and a ball phyton named Janis.

Say hello to Elena!
(or Lenka as she likes to be called!)
Elena is our pet professional (does pet sits and dog walks) and she is a very valuable help when it comes to providing medication to the animals.
She has been with us from day one and we are very happy to have her in our Team!
Her bilingual skills are a great asset when it comes to foreigner customers, so let's get to know her a bit better:
Being around animals and mainly around dogs it's my personal happy place. As an only child I was raised having all kinds of pets, but the bond I've achieved with dogs is the strongest in my life.
Outside of Cats and Dogs I work part time in the translation industry and a full time photographer. Born in Russia at the age of 10 I moved to sunny Cyprus - officially a summer person!
My favourite thing about pet sits / walks, is getting the chance to interact with so many animals, each and every one is a special individual and an amazing character. I cherish the sense of trust and security we as a Team provide to their humans, it is what I value the most.
I am a proud mother of 6, 3 dogs and 3 cats, Izzy, Lana, Meatball, Tom, Jerry and Kiwi, to be continued...
I can go through anything as long as I am surrounded by their cold & wet noses.
