About Alex

Hi! I'm Alex. I'm a 23 year old based in Massey (West Auckland) and Albany with a vet nursing diploma and a particular penchant for cats and birds - but I love all animals great and small! There is absolutely nothing I love more than taking care of pets, and that even includes the less glamorous aspects of the job.

I'm happy to come visit any of your fur babies while you're away and give them all the love, attention, and care they need, regardless of how "difficult" they may be considered. Patience and kindness is the single most important aspect for me in looking after an animal. I've have a personal passion for caring for elderly and sick cats, giving them all the medication and creature comforts they need. I've also provided high quality end of life palliative care for many pets.

My services include:

  • Home visits
  • Pet sitting (cat sitting/bird sitting)
If you're in Massey, Albany, or any of the surrounding areas and would like to use my services , feel free to contact me with any questions or to get to know me a little better! If you live outside of these areas it is sometimes possible for me to work out a plan with you - but please note that I travel by public transport, so you'll need to be on a good bus route.

Please also note that I'm not currently available for long term bookings, dog sitting, or dog walking.
