Hello my name is Alice and I am a recently new pet sitter up here in Liverpool.
I'm been pet sitting since I was a teenager for neighbours back home in Norfolk. I mostly looked after cats, dogs, chickens and my friend's hamster Maximus. I spent roughly 6 years looking after pedigree bulldogs on Saturday mornings, this involved feeding, grooming, exercise, administering eye drops and cleaning out kennels. When the owners went away on holiday I would also step in and care for them while they were away. I've also walked and house sat for my friends king charles spaniels when they didn't want to put them in kennels for a short period. I've sat for neighbours cats while they had been away on holiday, picking up the decapitated mouse heads from the kitchen floor.
Since I was little I've grown up with a lot of animals and I remain to this day a huge animal lover. I've had experience in caring for mice, rabbits, guinea pigs, fish, cats and dogs. My mum used to breed and show rabbits and at one point we had about 40 rabbits. I also have 7 years experience horse riding which I had to give up to learn how to drive. I used to attend pony club so I know my way round a hoof pick and a pair of reins.
Out of all the animals cats hold a special place in my heart. The love of my life was my furbaby Pickles who sadly died in August of this year. She was a rescued as a kitten and I cared for her until the ripe old age of 16. Alongside Pickles, we had a family dog called Rolo, a 15 year old chocolate labrador. He passed away in August within the same week, as his poor health got to him and he had to be put down by the vet.
I haven't had any experience with exotic animals, except watching a friend feed his snake a dead mouse but I will happily give it a go.
I moved to Liverpool permantley a year ago. My flat doesn't allow me to have animals and I want to fill the void by helping other animal lovers by looking after their pets while they are away.
Please note, I work full time Monday to Friday, 9 till 5pm.
Dogs well looked after. Pictures provided whilst I was away.
We booked Alice to look after our cat for the weekend for two visits a day. Alice was really helpful, came to visit beforehand and was really flexible in terms of collecting keys given it was short notice! It was lovely to receive photos and videos througout the weekend, with update messages which really put our minds at ease and it was clear that Luna was in good hands. Would definitely recommend and book again!
