About Alicia

Hello,

My name is Alicia and I adore cats, dogs and being surrounded by animals in general.

I've always had many cats, dogs and all kind of animals in my home country but I haven't had any since I moved to London in 2012, so I really miss having them around me to cuddle them all the time. That's why I've been doing catsittings since then, getting many regular customers who contact me every time they go away.

I see my cat and dog in Spain through videocalls very often, but it's hard for me not to have them here, so I really enjoy looking after some here.

As I love being surrounded by pets, I've also worked as a dog walker for a company based in Pimlico, but I have a soft spot for cats 😻 I have been doing catsittings for several years, looking after many different types of cats. Many of them are regular customers and I see them often. I have also done a lot of house sittings for cats, dogs and rabbits so far.

I am currently undertaking a number of pet-related courses. For instance, Pet First Aid & CPR, Animal Behaviour and more. I have also got my DBS certificate.

You can be sure your cats and dogs will be in the best hands with me 😊 I am an animal person with a strong capacity to create bonds with furry friends.

I am more than happy to look after other types of pets and I may have previous experience with them as my house was like a mini zoo when I was little 😊 

At the moment I'm available 24/7, any day any time.

I will send you photos and updates in every visit. I'll make sure your pet is very well looked after, providing companionship and protection at all times. I will feed your pets according to their specific diet and I'm also happy to administer medication whenever needed.

I can do home visits in which I will look after your pet but I can also water the plants, bring in the mail and take out the garbage.

I also offer house sitting service, when I would spend at least an hour of physical exercise with your dog or cat and make sure they are kept in the best hygienic condition.

Regarding dog walking, we can agree the duration you would like from 30 minutes. I live close to Battersea Park, which is a really nice and safe place for walking, playing and spending time with a dog.

Alicia did a great job of looking after my cat. Despite the cat not wanting to come in to the house Alicia sent lots of nice photos of her in the garden which was extremely reassuring. All requirements easily catered for. Will definitely use Alicia again.
