69, Happily Retired
74, Happily Retired
We are a quiet, retired couple (NON-SMOKERS) previously having sold our small B&B in the Southwest of WA, and have now established a career as Housesitters (well, not new as we'd done it before) and settled south of Mandurah. Ken an ex truckie and Fran an ex nurse manager. We are still housesitting around WA (mainly) but will look at further afield again later.
Over the years we've had both dogs and cats. Fran bred and showed pedigree Persians for 30 years, and since Housesitting have had plenty more experience looking after Rag Dolls, a particularly loveable breed of cat. Being an ex-nurse & a breeder of Persians has given me a world of experience in being very clued-in to knowing if the animal isn't well. Also very adept giving medications and grooming longhaired animals. So far we've had exceptional reviews -most here but other private ones in the system.
Being B&B owners, we have an eye for detail and are very clean and tidy. Our property was rural on acreage so Ken is very au fait with all things in that area (rainwater tanks, pumps, etc) and is a bit of a handyman too. He can fix most things (maybe he shoulda been called Bob??)
We've been "Sitting" our way round Oz. Having previously travelled the route with kids in tow so it's been a different 'road' this time. We love all parts of Australia but especially the Hinterland of Qld, rainforest & forest areas. We've had a great time exploring but are now back in our home state of WA and Covid free..
Please note we travel in our car and do NOT have a caravan so will need accommodation in your property
We are available NOW March 2021 (book ahead) and prefer a longer Sit (over 2wks where possible) so we can settle in, get to know your pet well and also the area.
Please feel free to read our Reviews. We have a Private one as well as on another site.
Give us a call - we're waiting for you!!
Fran & Ken
