About Alex

I now have a Full DBS certificate & am certified in the prevention of Covid-19.

I have grown up living with cats and dogs and currently own 3 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 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 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 15 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 7am and after 5pm 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.

Matty, 2020-09-13

From meeting Alex, we could tell she was an animal lover like ourselves, and understood how our pets are part of the family. She was friendly and easy to chat to, and went through our requirements. It was an easy decision to book in with Alex, as we instantly felt reassured. Alex knew we were happy to receive photos/updates and kept us in the loop whilst we were away which we loved. Our cats normally go to a family member for longer periods of time, so this was the first time we have kept them in their own surroundings with visits and receiving updates etc really put our mind at ease and we could see they had taken to Alex easily. We would definitely think about using a sitter again, as our cats seemed happier in their own home - and we would absolutely book Alex in for future trips.

As we were travelling during a pandemic, our trip was uncertain right until we actually left and even whilst away possibly subject to changes - Alex was so understanding and completely flexible around this which honestly took a huge stress out of it all!

Alex is the only person we trust with Poppy! She’s looked after her many time and we consider her an Fur-Aunty.

Poppy needs closely monitoring and medicating for a stomach/bowel issue, and Alex always makes sure she’s ok. We get pictures and updates too! We always know that Poppy gets the love and attention she needs whilst we’re away.
