Hi, I am a professional singleton looking for a responsible house-sitter to look after my two storey Maribyrnong townhouse and two happy, friendly small pets for six weeks from mid September to Cup weekend. The house - which does have stairs - is open plan, north facing and has a good sized deck with sun lounger, outdoor setting and mini herb garden and is situated in a quiet, secure complex just one block from Highpoint Shopping Centre. Trams to the city / Footscray / Moonee Ponds are within a few minutes' walk, and offstreet parking is available. My indoor pets are small but lively - a three-year-old Maltese cross girlie who loves walks, treats and belly rubs, and an adolescent ginger kitty who's curious and relatively self contained. The house is clean and tidy and since I'm a reader, comes complete with a well-stocked library and plenty of DVDs. Please contact me if you are interested - I will require references, and all the usual checks to be completed. Many thanks!
