Professional and Passionate Animal Lover

Highgate Hill, QLD

Hello All,
I was born on a large dairy/sugar farm in Northern New South Wales. I love all animals and nature. I am healthy (non smoker), sporty, energetic and a professional mature lady. I enjoy keeping a neat and tidy house and I would love to take special care of your beloved pets. I have nursed sick and injured animals for over 30 years.

I am an Australian who has lived in Italy and England for over 25 years running my own business, now I am back in Australia to have a quieter life.

Annie is an absolutely lovely person. She was caring for my cat Stephan for 5 days. She sent me his photos, he was sleeping on her bed, looking at birds through the window and enjoying himself. Didn't want to go home at the end :). I hope that Annie will be able to care for him next time.

Millie has had the best stay with kind-hearted Annie. Millie is an anxious nearly 14yo labradoodle and Annie has made her feel at home from the start. Annie obviously loves animals and is very in tune with their needs. We thought Millie might refuse to come home. Thank You Annie you put our minds at rest whilst we we're away. A Highly recommended.sitter.

Annie was a wonderful sitter for my 12 week old puppy. Temi had a great time going on walks and cuddling with Annie. I was very impressed that Annie had looked up my dog’s breed in order to better know how to interact with her. I highly recommend Annie.

Annie was an amazing pet sitter! she was so attentive to our little girls needs. We were updated regularly with their daily shenanigans and it put us right at ease, knowing that she was being looked after just as we would. Annie's home is Berri's new home away from home.

Annie is a sensible, sensitive, trustworthy and patient person who is kind to all living beings and is especially affectionate with four-legged animals. I have seen her care for strays and pets over many years and can earnestly endorse her as a sitter and as a caretaker.

We first met in 2001 in Rome in the local cat sanctuary. We are both involved in the wellbeing and protection of abandonned and abused animals. For the last 20 years, Annie has taken care of cats and dogs many times as petsitter worldwide. Feeding them, walking them and providing special healthcare if necessary. As a friend I can confirm that Annie is a trustworhy very reliable person and a true animal lover with loads of eperience in petsitting and animal home care!

22nd January, 2020 I have known Annie Frances Gray for 13 years. We became acquainted when I spent two months in her home, taking care of her pets, while she was on holiday. Our shared love of animals meant that we have remained friends over the subsequent years and I have observed her over extended periods as she took on assignments as a home and pet sitter. In all these situations she has been meticulous in prioritising the welfare and total care of the animals for which she has been responsible. They have most usually been dogs and cats of many breeds and sizes. She has been complimented on every occasion by grateful pet owners who were naturally most anxious that their pets were given not just basic needs but also the attention and loving affection the animals were used to. She is a fit, practical and efficient person with a good understanding of the close relationship between pets and owners. I have found her honest and truthful in her dealings with me and I feel she has all the assets required to make an ideal house and pet sitter.

I cannot recommend Annie highly enough. She looked after my two cats and home for more than a year whilst I was overseas. She took meticulous care of my home and my two cats, April and May. Annie is very thoughtful, kind and proactive in taking care of things. She kept in regular contact with me and updated me with photos and emails on the welding of my cats. I would recommend her anytime. A wonderful, kind, loving and caring person.

I have known Annie for 20 years. We initially worked together in Rome where we then established a close friendship. Annie was a wonderful employer, but more so has been a truly kind and caring friend over the years. She has a gentle and considerate nature, and loves all animals. Annie is always willing to help and support her friends when she can, and especially when animals are concerned. I would recommend Annie without hesitation!

To whom it may concern, For the relatively brief amount of time that I’ve come to know Annie, I have found her to be warm, courteous and reliable. I moved into our shared complex about 5 months ago and met and connected with this kind hearted woman instantly. As soon as I mentioned I had 3 cats, she enthusiastically volunteered her time and services If ever I would need to call upon her during my over night shifts. Consistently over these past months, Annie is the one who often initiates the gesture to feed and care for my cats. She spends the time and is sensitive to each of the cats’ quirks and complexities and keeps me updated by means of text and photographs. Over this festive season and beyond, Annie has been fostering and providing full time, high need care for an elderly underweight cat who has required intravenous medication. Since little Uma has been in Annie’s care, she has gained considerable weight and is showing strong signs of vitality. Annie goes above and beyond her call of duty when caring for animals and I wholeheartedly recommend her for any manner of animal and pet related services. Alex Dobbs 0416149011

Annie looked after our elderly Himalayan Persian, Uma for almost two months - allowing myself and my partner to go on our first proper trip away for ten years. We didn't want to leave Uma in a kennel and couldn't find anyone to stay at our rural property which is some distance from the nearest town. When we told Annie we were having trouble finding someone, without hesitation she offered to have Uma in her own home. Annie was communicative and reliable, sending us regular photos, updates and videos and did a wonderful job caring for our cat. Uma has complex needs with feline renal disease and Annie administered her medication and subcutaneous fluids and experimented with her diet so that Uma gained weight and looked healthier than she had in years when we picked her up. Going further, Annie truly demonstrated care for our cat and gave her love and affection and even masticated her roast chicken for her! We never had a single worry while we were away and felt like Uma was in the best possible hands. I cannot recommend Annie highly enough as a pet sitter and she even painted a portrait of Uma for us which hangs on our wall now. Annie has been a gift to our life and I'm now we're home again, I think Uma misses her!
