Responsible Housesitter!

31, Self Employed

Hello! I'm a 31 year old guy from New Zealand with family in Melbourne. I'm self employed (working from home) a non-smoker and I'm obsessed with cats haha

I really love housesitting because it allows me to stay in different parts of Melbourne and have the experience of having a cat without the long term commitment!

I really take each housesit seriously by not having any visitors, keeping the house clean, watering plants and giving the animals as much love as possible!!

Thanks for reading ✌️

Absolutely loved having Matt come to sit, as did my two cats. In fact, it’s been over a week since Matt left and I sense they still miss him! From the get-go Matt was a super laid back, calm presence but attentive to the details. He is observant, and proactive - he checked for the OK before treating the cats to goodies in my absence which I really appreciated and is indicative, I feel, of someone who cares greatly for pets on their sits in every sense. Matt was a super communicator, ... MORE

Matt did a great job looking after our house and most importantly our cat Luigi. The house was as we left it and Luigi was happy and relaxed. We have asked Matt to come again.

This was the second time Matt came to sit my two furry terrors and it was identical to the first; fantastic! Matt shows such genuine care for the kits and my place and his communication usually comprises of him showing snuggles with either/often both Parsley and Burger Queen. Scroll down for my first review, but nothing's changed - love the sit, can't wait to have Matt sit again.

Matt took great care of my cat, Cisco, and my home. His communication was exactly as we agreed and everything was well cared for. I'm sure Cisco was disappointed when I came home! No hesitation in recommending Matt :-)

Matt was a great communicator through the whole process and looked after our 2 cats while we were on holiday, allowing us to relax 100 % would recommend him!

Matt was an excellent house sitter! His communication was clear from our first contact until after the sit was completed. Plus he provided regular updates throughout - which made me a little jealous because he was clearly besties with my cat within days :D He also took great care of my place, and it was so nice to arrive back to a clean and tidy home. I definitely recommend Matt to take care of your home and pets!

Matt stayed at my house and looked after my old cat for 5 weeks when I went away. He was a great communicator and took great care of my cat and house. Highly recommend him as a house and cat sitter.

Matt is a brilliant house sitter. He took care of our plants, cat and apartment. Everything was spotless when we got home after almost 5 weeks overseas. Great communicator, he sent us regular photos of Harry throughout. In fact Matt did such a great job bonding with Harry that I’m sure Harry was missing his attention for the first few days after we got home! I highly recommend Matt and will hope to have him housesit for us again in the future.

My cat, Kittu had a wonderful time with Matt. Matt was very playful, attentive and caring of Kittu's needs and keeping him engaged. Matt kept my place tidy and I was over all very happy with how Kittu was a happy kitty. I can certainly feel that Kittu misses Matt . Matt was very kind in extending the stay as I could not return on time. In addition, Matt was very communicative and kept me informed of Kittu with photos & videos. Kittu & Kittu's mum highly recommend Matt for your next Pet sit.

Matt stepped in at short notice to look after our cat for two weeks. Matt also looked after our garden and managed the car which is available to rent. Matt's communication was perfect and we always had confidence that our cat was in good hands. On our return the house was clean and tidy and the cat was happy. Thanks Matt!

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
