The Purrfect Sitters

70, Retired

70, Retired

Originally from Western Australia up until 7 years ago, we are a mature, fit and healthy married couple now living in a young minded retirement complex in Twin Waters 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.

Recently, we had the privilege of having Tony and Vernice stay in our home for a couple of weeks to look after our cat, Ben. Ben was in his 6th week of recovery following a leg amputation. He still required some medication for nerve pain and Vernice & Tony took wonderful care of him for the period. They left our house spotlessly clean when they departed and went above & beyond any expectations in the care of our home. Ben looked so well upon our return and it was obvious that he had been ...

Fantastic house sitters, did work around the yard and mowed the lawn, the house was spotless. Our cat Max was very spoilt whilst we were away and he looked very very content when we returned home.
DANNY (Banksia Beach QLD, Oct 2020 - 3 weeks)
We can't thank Tony and Vernice enough. It was lovely to meet them and we went away with a good feeling. Coming home was a delight: the house and cats had obviously been looked after and cared for very well. They sure will be our first point of contact, when we go away again.
NICOLE (Annerley QLD, Jul 2020 - 1 week)
We consider ourselves lucky that Tony and Vernice were available to house (and cat!) sit for us. They are friendly and professional; wonderful with our very pampered kitty and I have to say walking into our immaculately cleaned apartment when we returned home after a lengthy road trip was absolute BLISS! No wonder their services are in high demand and they have repeat sits! Totally 11 out of 10 from us, guys - thank you so much!
JEN (FORTITUDE VALLEY QLD, Jun 2020 - 1 week 2 days)
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

Our home and pets were well cared for. Appreciated the level of communication from initial contact to end of stay.
MICHELLE (Alkimos WA, Nov 2018 - 2weeks)

LIZ (Maclean NSW, Oct 2018 - 2 weeks 2 days)
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.
PETA (Lismore NSW, Sep 2018 - 1 week 1 day)
We just loved Nelson, he was just one beautiful cat, he had a fascination for water, especially the shower.
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

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.

House Security

Safe house!

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