About Annthea

I am a retired administrative assistant. I love animals and have had a close association with many.  

At Mount Macedon I had tame native animals and birds all of whom ate out of my hand and knew me well. These animals included twelve kookaburras, one magpie with a broken beak (whom I fed by hand) and a brushtailed possum with baby. All animals were fed by hand with correct food. The father kookaburra used to play games with me and sit on my hand and back. One baby kookaburra loved playing with my toes in my sandals! I have had my own lilac burmese cat.  

I looked after the burmese cat when the original owner was unable to continue caring for it. I loved her dearly. Since retiring I have looked after friends' dogs when they have been away.  

I regularly go dog-walking with friends. I would look after any animal in my care as my own.  

In addition, I have a Police Check.  

As I have retired in the last few years I am now in a position to care for animals and devote more time to them.  

I have a Testimonial which I will add:   

"Dear Pet Lover, We wish to record our whole-hearted endorsement of Annthea Lindsay as a sitter or minder for your pet. Annthea has on many occasions sat for us - the perfect companion for our Schnauzer (Oscar) as well as our noisy Burmese cat (Marlowe) and for many years now our nervous Lagotto (Benny). Each of our animals has loved Annthea’s company: she has showered them with unceasing care and affection. We can attest to her many excellent personal qualities. She is always punctual, is a good listener and an active learner. We have never had the slightest problem with her serving meals or administering medications to our pets. With Annthea around your pet will feel it has had a holiday! Annthea is strong and fit and she walks with us most days. She is scrupulously honest and discreet, having worked for many years in highly responsible administrative positions in the armed services and local government. We regard her as a close and trusted personal friend. It is with delight and highest confidence we recommend Annthea as your next pet minder. Sincerely, Doug and Krista, Belmont, Geelong

Annthea was so wonderful with our cats! Her communication was perfect, it was nice receiving her reports everyday, we knew they were in safe hands. Annthea spent extra time with them when she could and brought over extra toys. They really were treated like royalty!

Thank you so much Annthea, we really appreciate the time you gave our girls, I think they made a special friend in you. Until next time! 🐾

Annthea looked after our pooch so well she went above and beyond the service engaged. She spent lots of extra time with our dog at home keeping him company because of her love for animals. Highly recommend Annthea to anyone looking for dog walking services.
