Experienced, caring, pet lovers
NOT SITTING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE- SORRY
We are currently on our 59th sit in Scarborough Qld, caring for a cat in a lovely apartment with a fantastic view.
In March 2015 we packed our household goods into storage, and started on our adventure of house and pet sitting. During this time we have met the most wonderful loving pets, lived in beautiful homes, met lovely families, and visited to great places in our fantastic diverse country. Including 3 months in Tasmania, a month in the NT where we hadn't been before, and have spent a lot of time in Far North Queensland where be both really love. Since Mid 2019 we only sit part-time.
We are pet lovers who are enjoying spending time with other pets, sharing their lives, and getting to know their little personalities. We also enjoy walking dogs (cats and birds) in new places, and making the most of our new location, capturing it with photography, we also appreciate the local bird song of different locations. Kevin enjoys day hikes when he gets the opportunity. We are mostly homebodies, happy to eat in, and watch tv with a pet on our lap. We have always had pets in our family until Tilly (our little dog) died 3 years ago, aged 17.
We know how important pets are in a family, we adhere to your schedule, and give pets plenty of love and care. Even the most shy cats and dogs, who dislike men fall in love with Kevin. Dogs greet us as if they already know us. We are happy with large or small dogs, and are able to walk for several hours per day.
House sitting saves on kennel fees, and fretting pets, and in most cases, your home insurance is covered having someone in your home.
We are clean, trustworthy and responsible, and will look after your pets and home as if they are our own. We do not smoke or have parties.
We have swimming pool and hot tub care experience. Ride on Mower and gardening experience. Experience with chickens, pigs, horse feeding, goats, elderly dogs, rescue dogs, puppies and cat care, and are happy to have your pet sleep on the bed with us, if this is what you request, as our own little dog had done this in the past. We will keep your home running in the way you and your pets are familiar with for a happy home.
We have cared for several small farms, one being a small poultry farm with 4 horses in Tasmania, and a farm with a mixture including pigs, goats and chickens etc., and many houses and small farms with chickens.
We can assure that you can go away on holiday, and have peace of mind, that your home and pets are being looked after well, as you would expect, and you can arrive home to a clean, happy home.
We travel in a mid size 4wd, or have flown and been offered the family car.
We prefer homes on one level with minimal stairs.
We also take 'word of mouth' house sits.
We both have current Police Checks, and excellent reviews/references with our profile.
If we sound like who you are looking for, we would be happy to hear from you.
Thank you for reading our profile.
