Hello, my name is Andrew. My wife and I are both aged in our 60s and are empty-nester retirees living in an inner western suburb of Adelaide. For most of my working life I was an accountant. I'm motivated to care for other people's pets because I want purposeful, useful and enjoyable employment in my retirement. Also I've appreciated good and reliable pet care when I've been away and want to offer you the same peace of mind when you entrust your furry family members to me.
Kind, caring and committed. Our pet ownership history includes an abandoned sibling trio of cats (3 months old) when the last one died after 13 years, a rescue shelter cat (2 months old) for 21 years, another abandoned stray (3 months old) for 8 years , two neglected strays (adults) one for 7 years the other for the last few months of his life, and our second rescue shelter adoption (2 years) whose company we've enjoyed for 2 years so far.
While I am primarily a cat lover I have met many friendly dogs over the years and so am happy to care for them in addition to other animals except snakes. I am offering my services on a 'travel to your home' basis and am willing to feed cats and dogs, keep them company and take dogs for walks for one hour per visit. Tending to other animals is fine as well. I am also willing to clear your letterbox and attend to minor tasks such as pot plant watering and keeping bird baths and feed trays etc. topped up. At present I am unable to provide boarding services.
I have limited experience at taking care of other people's pets but have enjoyed doing so when requested. My most recent care experience was for a cat in a neighboring suburb while his owners were interstate for a week. This involved feeding him morning and evening, plus most days I visited him in the early afternoon to give him additional company. I befriended him and his family through a catalogue delivery round. I have done some dog walking in the past. As well as walking your dog around your local streets I can take them to nearby parks to socialize with other dogs.
Enjoy peace of mind while you're away. I am also happy to provide my services as a regular arrangement should your lifestyle leave limited time for pet care, with the occasional 'Dad' joke thrown in for free! My preference is to look after animals in the western suburbs of Adelaide.
Andrew recently cared for our cat for just over a week. We were thoroughly impressed by his obvious love of cats, his frequent updates as to her welfare, and his conscientiousness nature going so far as to take out our bins for collection on the relevant day. We'd highly recommend Andrew's services and will definitely use him when next we're away for an entirely stress-free experience!
Andrew is fabulous. My miniature dachshund loves her daily visits from Andrew. I appreciate the time he spends with her and the texts he sends me before leaving to update me on her. One very happy customer. Thank you Andrew.
