About Hamish

Hi!

I'm Hamish a 43 year old artist and ex-civil servant based in Forest Hill.

I love animals but have never been able to have one of my own in London so this is a perfect way to keep connected to them. I work as a freelance artist (I make performances, and other works that are about human interactions) so have flexible hours, often work from home and enjoy learning new things.

I live in south east London and can travel locally or across town by bicycle of public transport come rain or shine. Pet sitting, walking (loooong and short), feeding, washing, belly rubbing, keeping them company. I'm available for it all. I can also keep you updated with photos and videos to reassure you that your non human family is in good hands and hopefully not missing you too much.

I love looking after my friend's dogs and cats whenever I can. I am affectionate and tactile but also try to respect animals' space, especially if we have just met. I let them know I'm available and then aim to be responsibe to their needs (with a bit of extra information from you of course!). I have some dance training and my work often deals with non verbal communication and while I'm not claiming to be a dog whisperer I do feel that I have some sense of how things like distance and proximity, movement, touch etc. can be ways to communicate.

On my calendar I've marked as unavailable days where I'm busy at least half the day so it might that I can still very much fit in a visit still. Please do check.
