About Alex

I have grown up living with cats and dogs and currently own 2 cats who are my absolute world. I have always had a great interest and passion in looking after animals and I am always the go to person for friends and family when they need help with caring for their animals, wether it be checking in on their cats while they are away, walking their dogs or making vet runs when they dont have access to transport.

I am currently looking into making a career change to become a vetinary nurse and I feel like learning to look after other peoples animals would be a good step towards this, as this job will entail intereaction with a variety of different pets and their owners.

I understand that peoples pets are just as important to them as their children, and in some cases ARE their children! I will always ensure that your pet receives the best care from me at all times, and I will show them the same love and attention as I give my own fur babies.

Whilst I don't currently have any formal skills or qualifications in animal care, I do have 20 years experience of pet care and ownership from rats and hamsters to dogs and cats. I also have done extensive reading into cat behaviour and training in my spare time.

My visits will always be at least 30 minutes giving me enough time to feed pets, give medication if applicable, give pets some playtime and have cuddles!

Walks can be tailored in length to suit the needs of the pet/requirements of the owners but will always be 30 minutes as standard.

Availability is before 8am and after 4:30pm everyday. I currently work 5 in 7 days and get 2 days off weekly, these days are not always the same every week but if a booking falls on a day when I am off I will get in touch with owners and see if a daytime visit/walk would suit better and this will also allow me to spend more time with the animals.

As much as possible, I will send updates daily through messages and pictures of how your pets are doing whilst they are in my care.
