About Alice

*** I AM COVID FREE AND FOLLOW ALL COVID SAFETY GUIDELINES ***

My services cover: cats, reptiles/amphibians, fresh water fish, rodents, and plants!! (Sorry, no dogs or spiders; birds negotiable.)

Let me start by saying I already love your cat and will always go above and beyond for them!!!! I have a small zoo at home lol, including 3 awesome giant fuzz-butts that I love beyond words! Buuuut I also love everyone else's cats!!! lol Choosing me for your cat sitter will mean a STRESS-FREE cat sitting experience for you and your pets while you’re away :)

EACH VISIT WILL BE APPROXIMATELY 60 MINUTES AND INCLUDES:

*LOTS of pictures and video updates!!

*text summary of each visit - what we did and how everyone is doing

*feeding & watering (bowls washed each time and fresh water each day)

*medication administration if needed

*litter scooping and garbage removal

*sweeping around litter & food areas (as needed)

*interactive play time!!! I bring my own toys! :) (sterilized!)

*brushing (if appropriate)

*as many cuddles/pets as allowed by cat lol

* close monitoring for any physical/behavioural issues

INCLUDED FREE: plant watering, fish feeding, pet garbage removal, and mail pickup if needed!

PLEASE NOTE: all pet interactions will be positive! I do not employ punishment!!

I will 100% follow all of your care instructions from our free Meet & Greet before you leave, and our communications while youre away, since YOU are your cat's best expert!

I am: considerate, cooperative, thorough, responsible, reliable, dedicated, friendly, fair, and pet-welfare-centred!

I have approximately 25 years of responsible, healthy, pet ownership, 4 years of successful pet sitting experience, and 2 years experience fostering cats of all ages with a local rescue agency! I have a small zoo at home (3 cats, 6 geckos, 5 fish) and a small jungle as well haha so if you have plants, rest assured they will be well taken care of as well. I am also experienced in oral and sub-dermal medication administration for cats, so if your pet has any special/medical needs, I’ve got you covered!! I have a cat with severe food allergies, gastric-intentional issues, and high anxiety, so I’m comfortable sitting for higher need cats :)

I offer 3 different service rates:

$22/visit for 1-2 cats (OR reptiles, OR rodents requiring more than just water/feeding).

Included free: mail pickup, garbage removal, a small amount of plants and/or fish.

$50 for 2 daily visits.

$24/visit for 3-4 cats (OR 1-2 cats PLUS reptiles/rodents).

Included free: mail pickup, garbage removal, a small amount of plants and/or fish.

$55 for 2 daily visits.

I also offer a more basic home visit if needed that is $18/visit and covers feeding/watering of JUST plants/fish/rodents ONLY.

Mail pickup and garbage removal included free :)

*Please ask me if you need a custom fee schedule not listed here for special circumstances/setups! :)

PLEASE NOTE:

An in-person Meet & Greet is required by Pawshake before commencing my services for the first time for you :) because of this, there will be a $20 last minute booking fee if booking less than 48hrs in advance.

**if you live 30+ minutes away from me, each visit will be $2 extra for travel time/gas. I live by Rundle Park.

MORE ABOUT ME:

I am in my late thirties and a friendly and outgoing social introvert! haha :) I love plants and animals and wanted to do something with that for part of my income, so here I am! I have a lot of crafty and artsy hobbies, an awesome circle of friends, and I love to meet new animals! :)

I adopted all 3 of my cats from rescues. I had 2 from the Humane Society, and then fostered cats for about 2 years before I "foster failed" with one of the kittens I was fostering and adopted him haha. Unfortunately, that left no room to foster more for now, but I love spending time with cats so I took up cat sitting instead :)

I have a small zoo (as I mentioned), including 3 cats, 4 leopard geckos, 2 African Fattail Geckos, 2 small planted fresh water fish tanks (one with fish, one with just snails and plants), about 60 tropical and succulent plants, and some small vivariums.

Sadly, one of my sweet fur-babies has a lot of food allergies, skin and anxiety issues, and is a picky eater and needy bugger to boot! Lol This took a lot of time and effort to figure out, meaning I had to become somewhat of a cat nutrition and behaviour guru lol Because of this I am uniquely in tune with cat behaviour and experienced in oral, topical, and subdermal medicine admininistration (if your sweetie needs this while you're gone, I have the experience). I am also adept at preparing and serving different meal requirements to multiple cats at once, so if this is something your cats need, I'm a pro! haha

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask! I look forward to helping you and your pet family!

As always Alice is a joy to work with. Always quick to respond and provides thorough communication. Our cats meow at us if we're gone for an afternoon, but with Alice they're so well cared for, they don't even seem bothered when we're back from extended trips.

Best cat sitter, paws down! Alice was super professional, yet quite playful with Kitty. I highly recommend her to anybody looking for a sitter. I would not hesitate to reach out to Alice in the future when I need a sitter for Kitty 😺
