Although mainly a cat person, I do also love dogs- especially big ones! I've spent the last 11 years taking care of our family husky. Dog walking that beast is no easy task, but over the years, I've just grown accustpom to handling big, rowdy dogs. I'm not afraid of them getting a little rough when they play, and I can hold my own without being agressive with them.
With cats, I'm just as playful. Besides the 3 full grown cats of mine, I also had the habit of fostering kittens. I just love animals in general and I feel like having a pet is having a member of your family you need to give as much care and attention to as any other.
Having had cats and dogs with some health needs in the past, I completely understand and am very meticulous with whatever special needs your pets might have.
I am more than willing to walk, pet sit, and generally help out with whatever when it comes to taking care of your beloved fuzzballs-- or even the unfuzzy ones! I also love snakes and have experience in minding snakes and lizards for short periods of time.
I've just recently moved to Melbourne, from the Philippines, and I left behind my three beloved cats and our adorable dog for the next 2 years while I study here. Because it would be irresponsible for me to take another pet I cannot bring back home with me when I return (and, my landlord doesn't allow pets), I want to fill the furry little gap in my heart by taking care of other people's pets.
Alek was a wonderful sitter for our cat, Breq. He was great with communication and kept Breq great company over the weekend. He not only provided us with updates, but had fantastic photos for us of Breq. We also loved the note and picture he left. I would recommend Alek for any sitting job, either long or short, and for any animal, especially ones who are fussy or have extra requirements. Thanks Alek!
We were very impressed with how great Alek was with our cat over the New Year period and were most appreciative of the hilarious daily updates and amazing photos he sent each day.
Alek regularly played with our cat, supervised his outside time, brushed him, and asked us thoughtful questions like where's the cat carrier in case he needs the vet and does he usually get frightened of noise on NYE.
He also happily helped with extra tasks like taking our bins out, and watering our plants.
We will definitely get in touch with Alek again next time we go away.
