The Purrfect Sitters

68, Retired

68, Retired

Originally from Western Australia up until 6 years ago, we are a mature, fit and healthy married couple now living in a retirement complex on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland.
Prior to our retirement, we were employed in the Retail Marketing and Management industry in Perth, where we knew and understood the client was always a priority.
As homeowners we are well used to caring for and maintaining a property, and dealing with any issues that arise. We are very house proud and would tend to your home, gardens and pools as if they were our own. We will be completely respectful of your home and any requirements you have for taking care of it and your pets. We like to be at home, listening to music, reading, relaxing or pottering in the yard so your home and pets will not be left alone for any length of time.
We are responsible, level headed, flexible and love animals, in particular cats and dogs.
Our first cat led a wonderful life for 17 years. 6 months after his passing we took on Birman twins from a breeder in the south west of Perth for a further 15 years and had a very long association with her experience.
We are non smokers and enjoy a social drink and are clean living people.
We have travelled frequently, both in Australia and overseas, particularly extensive road trips throughout the USA, as we are a very independent couple.

No rating Tony and Vernice were fabulous. The house was left cleaner than when I left it (after a mad teaching term) and Nelson was well looked after. Communication was clear before the house sit and they popped in before I left for a briefing. I thoroughly recommend them.

We just loved Nelson, he was just one beautiful cat, he had a fascination for water, especially the shower.
We booked our 7 week house and cat sit about 9 months ahead and everything went to plan. Tony and Vernice were extremely reliable and communicated well along the way. Our 19 year old cat was clearly very well cared for and was in excellent condition on our return.
TONI (Auchenflower(Brisbane) QLD, May 2019 - 7 weeks)
Tony & Vernice were delightful sitters, not only for our home but our young Ragdoll cat who still plays with a special 'toy' Vernice left him; unfortunately he was so well cared for we now have to spend many more hours playing with him! & he still sleeps in the bathroom hand basin. Our home was left spotless, in fact the kitchen sink cupboard tidiest it's been for many a year. Will not hesitate to invite them again if they are available. Communication was second to none in fact we were ... MORE

No rating We were very lucky to have had Toni & Vernice house sit and take great loving care of our 2 geriatric cats from 13 March - 5th April. We felt very confident when we too to the road. We were delighted to be in frequent contact and receive progressive photos of our kitty family in all poses of lap sitting etc. plus. It was relaxing to know they were in good hands. We arrived home to a house that was beautifully clean and tidy and the garden and lawn transformed. Thank you, I will have to ... MORE
MARGARET & HENRY (Bongaree Bribie Island QLD, Mar 2018)
No rating As this is the first time we have had a sitter we were a little apprehensive, and were delighted to come home to an immaculately clean house with everything in order. The garden was well watered despite the excessive heat and a clean up from a storm at the end of the sit. The fish are still all there and happy. Unfortunately Tony and Venice are not available for out next holiday or we would certainly have them sit again.
