About Alexandra

Hey 👋🏼 I am Ally. I'm an Australian mother to my son and 3 wonderful fur babies.

I have 2 Orientals (Cinnamon and Milly) and 1 Siamese (Meeko- he is the one in my profile picture) ......yes he does talk a lot and yes he is overly affectionate! He is the baby of the pile. They are all very loving and I couldn't imagine a life without them or any pets. 

I am a freelance artist working from home. Most of my artworks are of peoples amazing pets-which I love! 

I'm available throughout the day. So depending on your needs I can cater to them.I would of course love to see you and your fur babies prior to the job so that we are all comfortable and a clear idea of what you need. 

On weekdays I do drop my son off to school so I would fit around that during the day and in the evening. I have a car and use that for dropping off and picking up. 

I can water plants and bring in your mail. I will always leave your place clean and tidy and most of all respected. Its your domain but most of all, its their home. You can expect to come home to a clean home and pets who are really happy ❤️

How long will I stay for home visits? Minimum of 20mins. I will do playtime and then general duties, such as food and water and cleaning of litters etc. I usually stay longer than 20mins (between 30-60mins). If your cat has anxiety or not used to being left alone, I will stay longer for them. 

I will cater to you and send pictures of your fur baby daily (I love a photo during the day to know my babies are alright and cared for). But I'll stay to play and keep company for as little or as long as needed 👍🏼 my family and I know the importance of cat and dog sitting. We use cat sitters for our cats for when we are away. They simply would be unhappy in a kennal and prefer to be at home in their environment. 

I have been surrounded by pets and animals all my life and brought my beloved childhood kitty from Australia to the UK. I have been surrounded with cats and dogs since I was a child, so I know no different.
They are family in my eyes. I love pets a lot and many are drawn to come to me. As much as I love animals I can't have any more at my place (for now-shhhh don't tell my partner) so I would to help others in my flexible time and spread my love to other fur babies. 

My mother was a vet nurse and I've worked as a vet assistant (back home-which feels like a lifetime ago now) which means  I have a great deal of knowledge and experience with animals who may need special care and attention. If your pets need this, I can provide it, such as giving tablets, injections even down to nail clipping (that can be quite tricky) 

I am a trustworthy, reliable and friendly person who will go the extra mile especially for where pets are concerned.  Can't wait to hear from you 👋🏼

Very glad to have Alexandra to come and play with our cat during our vacation. Our cat likes Alexandra very much and enjoys the time to be accompanied. Definitely will ask Alexandra for help next time and introduce to our friends and neighbours.

I was so anxious about leaving my kitties to be looked after by somebody else. There was no need to be! Ally was the purrrrfect choice and sent me pics and updates from the very 1st visit all throughout our holiday. It made my time away from them alot easier knowing they were safe in her paws 🐾 Ally quickly became part of there daily routine and my shyest cat "Shady" even let her pet him and that's very unheard of usually! Came back to 3 very happy kitties and will be asking for more visits in the future when we go away again. Ally, thank you so much. You are a star 🌟 🤩 ✨️
