Alexandria, NSW

Hi! I’m a contemporary Sydney visual artist, who has been professionally pet sitting for 5 years. I also paint pet portraits.

I've cared for Greyhounds, Retrievers, Terriers, all the 'Ooodle' sorts, Dingoes, and multiple cross-breeds. Rag-Dolls, Siamese, Bengals, Burmese and standard purr machines.

Horses, birds, fish, turtles and swearing corollas. Also, pets with 'special' needs, puppies and ancient pets.

Please message me if you would like real-life references!

Thanks!

Kelly.


About This Listing

My apartment is dog (and other certain pets) friendly, has a dog-focussed/designed undercover balcony, with a doggie sun bed, tonnes of plants (for shade and the sniff factor) and forever filled water bowls. I live one street from a designated dog park, and three streets from another two dog parks. Alexandria is 'dog-city'!

I was very lucky to have Kelly answer my add for a house sitter. After lots of texts and calls I had found someone I could trust to look after our home and fur kids. Kelly is a lovely down to earth honest lady with a wicked sense of humor and I would not hesitate to recommend her for house sitting as she did a fabulous job while we were away. Our home was immaculate when we got back and the feather and fur kids had well and truly been spoiled and very well looked after and the plants were happily watered as well. Having Kelly house sit was wonderful as Honey dog had a ball and Kelly took her on outings and sent me photos of Honey.(a great one of Honey looking at goldfish at Petbarn.) The difference to not have to put Honey in a kennel was amazing no stressed out dog when we returned.(I don't think she missed us at all) Kelly thank you for being such a great house sitter. When we need a house sitter again I hope you are available as you really care for your animal charges and took every care with our property, you did an amazing job. Thank you so much you were greatly appreciated! Rob, Jenny, Honey, Fancy, Charlie bird and the we don't want to go to bed Chickens.

Kelly looked after our house in Newtown and two dogs whilst we went overseas. She did an amazing job, keeping us updated with photos, messages and emails about how the dogs were doing and she took a real interest in providing them with new and creative experiences. It made us so much more comfortable leaving them at home knowing that Kelly was looking after them. She also looked after the house, with it being cleaner than when we left and she made some huge improvements to our garden while we were away which was fantastic. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kelly for future house-sits and would definitely be looking to use her to look after our house and puppies if we ever go away in the future.

Kelly was a wonderful housesitter who kept in regular contact while we were away and spoilt our dog. It was such a relief to be able to visit family overseas and not have to worry about our house and pet being in good hands. Highly recommended. Liz, Earlwood 2018

I am in regular contact with Kelly Milton, whom I have known throughout her adult life and have spent many occasions with her at her home and a number of rental accommodations in both rural and city locations within South Australia. Kelly maintains an orderly house and as an artist and historian has a very strong appreciation of the value of special items to their owners, treating her own possessions and theirs with utmost care. Also a lover of plants, gardening and garden design, the special attention she pays to the gardens and environs anywhere she is living is notable. She is a dedicated, long term dog owner with a robust interest and connection to animals in general. I can recommend her as a property custodian.

Kelly Milton has recently house sat for two weeks at my home in Bridgewater while I was away on holidays. Kelly took care of my home, pet cat and garden, which received excellent care above and beyond what was required. In the garden she pruned my numerous roses, watered and fertilised my extensive garden and organised bird netting for my fruit trees. Kelly also reorganised a number of kitchen drawers (after consulting me). My home was well looked after and clean, with a well-stocked fridge and lovely meal ready, on our return. I have no hesitation in recommending Kelly to house sit and care for your home, including pets and gardens. Robyn, Adelaide
