My partner and I are looking for a reliable and honest house sitter during July - August who can take care of our two cats and keep the house and garden tidy while we travel overseas.
We live in the family-friendly inner city suburb of Ascot Vale (near the Flemington Racecourse). Ascot Vale is quiet and a lovely place to live - it has a great local shopping strip with supermarket and cafes, and a large shopping complex Highpoint close by. The city is a 15 minute train ride or to the right person, could drive our small manual car around town.
The house is a small two-bedroom Victorian terrace with a nice little outdoor courtyard and garden. The main bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and second bedroom a double bed and study.
Our two cats are "outside" cats during the day, and "inside" cats at night. The housesitter would have to be at home to close them in at night and let them out in the morning (though they can go a day or two unsupervised outside). They are both fairly independent cats: Big Cat is super relaxed and curious, will follow you around in the garden, Small Cat is very shy but also very affectionate once you know him.
Some conditions to consider:
- plants and garden to maintain
- cat lovers only
Look forward to hearing from you!
