Thank you for considering me as a pet sitter for your lovely pets! I am a passionate animal lover with two cats of my own and I would love to have the opportunity to get to know even more pets here in Victoria. As a pet owner I know how important it is to find someone you trust to take care of your fur babies while you are away so as a pet sitter I always promise detailed communication, reliable service, and a caring and loving environment for you pets.
At this time I am only able to pet sit at your own home as my older cat Indie does find new introductions to be quite stressful. However I am more than happy to travel to your home to spend some quality time with your pet while you are away or take your dogs for additional walks. I am available for dog walks as well as once a day home visits. I am unfortunately not available for twice a day visits during the school year as I am a teacher making morning visits during the school day not possible. As such all once a day home visits will need to be in the afternoon/evening.
Home visits are half an hour long and involve feeding, playing and generally spending time with your pet as well as outside time in your yard for a dog and litter box clean for a cat. I am also comfortable with small animals (rodents, birds, fish etc.) as I currently have fish myself and have had pet rats in the past. As part of a home visit I am happy to water a few plants and send photos of each pet along with a short update of how they are doing. Dog walks are also half an hour however we can absolutely book longer sessions.
As mentioned above I do have cats currently: Indie is 13 and is a grumpy but very loving kitty, Milo is a sweet 2 year old youngster with lots of energy. I have experience with small animals and grew up in a household with many dogs and cats. I have some dog training experience and would be happy to continue working on specific training skills with your dog while you are away or while we are out on a walk.
I always do a meet and greet prior to committing to a booking just to make sure that your pets and I are a good fit. While I do take some bookings further from my home, I do prioritize bookings I can walk/transit to. However, I do have a car available for emergency purposes and my partner would be on call to bring the car to me should your pet need a vet visit.
Alisha took great care of my cat while I was away for a work trip. She sent daily pictures and updates with relevant questions concerning my kitty's wellbeing. I highly recommend Ashley and will definitely hire her again.
Alisha was fantastic and took great care of our cat. We'd be happy to book her again next time.
