Hi. I am your local Southfields Pet Sitter, Ali and I am available for all types of pet care, including cats and dogs. I also cover Putney, Putney Bridge, Wimbledon, Earlsfield and Wandsworth.

At aged 4, I got my first pet. Tina was a black and white guinea pig who was, rather miraculously, born in the hutch of our two female guinea pigs Sally and Suzie. I think the confusion started when Dad bought the guinea pigs from Bunny Land.
Since then, I have had Clarabel the Cat who was scared of birds, Button the Dog whose tail went round like a propeller and, briefly, Sharky the Goldfish. After leaving Sharky in the care of University housemates over a weekend, I soon realised how important it is for an owner to put their pets into the hands of trustworthy sitters!
Since working for London Pet Sitting I have had the luxury of caring for a variety of different animals and I enjoy building a close bond with both pet and owner. When I’m not looking after my pet posse, I gig on the comedy circuit, watch Downton Abbey, and spend too much time on the Northern Line.
Areas I Cover
Welcome to Southfields, part of the London Borough of Wandsworth. As its name suggests, Southfields originally consisted of a large expanse of green in between the villages of Wimbledon and Putney and sat pretty much untouched until the late 19th Century. From the introduction of the District Line, Southfields rapidly developed into the thriving area you see today, with an abundance of high end shops, restaurants and most important of all- parks!
Although I wish I could walk your dog on the beautiful nearby lawns of Wimbledon Tennis Ground, luckily King George’s Park is a dog walker’s dream. Measuring 770m long with a width of 120m, this gives pooch all the bounding around and game play he could ever wish for. At the far end of the park, the pretty River Wandle trickles alongside a long, leafy trail to tantalise all of your dog’s senses.
To spoil your dog further, the fresh air and wide open space that characterises nearby Putney has been enjoyed by animal and human alike for centuries. Traditionally known as the place for Londoners to visit for a bit of peace and quiet, Putney offers green, green and more green! Putney’s landmark is a beautiful 18th Century bridge which crosses over the Thames and links the area to Fulham, with a church on each side. Luckily for your dog, it provides a lovely riverside stroll alongside exciting boat races which attracts tourists throughout the year.
Probably my favourite walk is the picturesque green labyrinth that makes up Wimbledon and Putney Commons. Comprising of almost 460 acres, the area covers a vast expanse of countryside split between Wimbledon Common, Putney Heath and Putney Lower Common. The commons are made up of significant woodland which houses an array of wildlife, birds and creepy crawlies as well as a recreation area and several ponds. Not a fence in sight, pooch will be able to take full advantage of all the delicious smells as well as full doggy work out. Luckily for dog walkers, the commons are open to the public 24 hours a day where we are in the safe hands of the keepers who man the commons from dusk until dawn.
As part of Southfields Pet Sitting, I am fortunate to also cover the areas of Putney, Putney Bridge, Wimbledon, Earlsfield and Wandsworth. Dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, spiders, snakes, goldfish, and amoebas- I am open to looking after your treasured pet no matter how unusual they are. Except wasps, I’m scared of them!

I recently hired Matthew to look after my new cat Woody. Woody is a very nervous cat and needs special care and attention. I was very worried about leaving him for the first time but on meeting Matthew I knew he would be looked after. He has a very caring nature and totally understood my worries. He really put my mind at rest by updating me every time he visited and even took care of the plants in my flat. I really can’t recommend Matthew enough, he is a great find and I’ll be using him again. Ms. L. H-S and Woody of Vauxhall
