About Alex

Hello, I'm a very friendly person, who has a love for the outdoors, food, music and travelling. I grew up in South London and I’m currently working at a primary school in Woolwich, supporting students with learning difficulties. I’m available outside of school hours, on weekends and during the school holidays.

I’m a keen cyclist and usually I'm whizzing around London, so I’m geographically flexible.
I have recently been cat sitting for 2 friends, as well as regularly looking after Jeppa - the dog of my partner's parents. I usually take him for long walks.

I love spending time with animals, and since I unfortunately haven’t been able to keep pets in the past few years, I am super keen to get to know some fur creatures when they need looking after on their human’s behalf.

As a child I have had various pets: a dog, rabbits, hamsters. We would often go on holidays, in the countryside, in France. There I looked after our neighbour's kitten and rabbit, and sometimes I would feed her lambs. I would go on walks with my mother, visiting the local pig farm and feed the cows with salt.

I has spent some years travelling, volunteering and working abroad. During my year in Australia, I did various odd jobs including farm work, helping out around the home, which often involved feeding the chickens. During my time in Turkey, during a volunteering placement, one of my daily tasks was to walk with their herd of sheep for grazing.

For home visits: I'm happy to water plants, collect post, clean/tidy/change litter tray and take the rubbish out. I will send photo & video updates. I usually triple check a home is securely locked before I leave. And of course I will give lots of playtime and affection to your pet.

I am comfortable administering medicine orally, if required, and following clear instructions on general care to minimise disruption to your pet’s routine. 

For house sitting: I will keep the home tidy and clean & tidy before I leave. I will send photo & video updates. Clean, tidy and change the litter tray, take the rubbish out. Regularly walk the dogs. Watch TV together with the cats and dogs and I'm more than happy to have them sleeping with me. 

I'm availble for dog & cat sitting at your home - if your pet needs a companion. I tend to finish work at 15:30 so I'm availble after that, during the weekends and school hoildays.

Alex did a great job caring for our kitty cat.

She met us a couple of times before we went away and ensured she knew where everything was. The communication was perfect, we received daily updates with photos and Alex also checked that everything was okay after we got back.

Many thanks Alex and we certainly hope to see you again!
