Hello, I'm Alex. I currently work as a full-time lecturer at a University. I have two cats - sister rescue kittens, Ruby and Astrid (3 yrs old). They were very sick when I first got them and for about 4 months - but after a lot of work, meds and trial and error with food, their digestive issues are all resolved!
I had a cat called Ember - she passed away in January 2020. She was a beautiful 9 year old tortie. She's always been a very highly-strung, anxious (and sometimes aggressive) thing. I've learnt from Ember, and from years of cat sitting in Melbourne (both young and older cats), how to act around kittens and cats, and especially how to handle 'difficult' cats. I can administer medication (including injections), do basic grooming (including nail clipping!) and, of course, food, litter and play. I'm patient and responsible and I adore all animals - but I'm especially good around cats. I've also done a lot of dog walking and dog sitting. And now, have experience with rabbits and chickens :)
I'm based in Lyneham, and I'm available for any type of cat or dog (or chicken and rabbit!) sitting in Canberra civic or the inner North. I don't have a car, I cycle everywhere - so I'm unable to service areas too far out of the inner North of Canberra, sorry.
My rates are very flexible and depend on your pets needs.
