Fun for the animals
72, retired writer/photographer
Hi, I am a non smoker, non drinker who loves animals. I've sat everything from goldfish to award winning cattle. Cats and dogs? Not a problem. Sat with a partner for 12 months from Tasmania to Queensland and the states in between.
I grew up with cats and dogs, so I already knew there was a special bond between myself and animals.
On my own I've sat at Hatton Vale (24 animals), Dungog (2 cats, 4 dogs), Cedar Vale (2 dogs), Wingham (4 dogs, 2 cats), Yarrowcyk (3 dogs, a dozen chooks and umpteen sheep), Berry (3 horses, one dog) Wellington (2 dogs, one cat), Canberra (one dog), Ribena (2 dogs) Five Dock (one dog),
With my partner I sat one dog (Koolewong), Wynyard Tasmania (1 cat, 1 dog). Tamworth (2 cats), Toowoomba (3 cats, 2 dogs).
I have a medium sized motorhome (approx. 7 metres long) and, for what it's worth, a well developed sense of humour (comes in handy, especially with animals). Also happy to mow lawns and look after gardens.
I can come solo or with my partner if you prefer and, if public transport to your location is available, I can also park my motorhome elsewhere if you live in a big city.
My only requirement is internet access because I have to send articles to my publisher from time to time.
Hope I suit your requirements.
I've taken a liberty with the photos, included a few of the type of stuff that I shoot. Cheers.
