We are looking for a pet and house sitter for just under a week while we travel to Sydney to celebrate a 50th.
Our pets are a female Jack Russell, Xena, friendly, affectionate, loves a walk, and is an excellent alarm system.
Two tabby cats, Crispin and Daneres, Cris is fully grown, a gentle giant, who in secret enjoys keeping the feral rabbit population under control. Dane is not yet a year old, she gives the best leg rubs and enjoys toying with mice. They are both invaluable on our six acres.
Both cats enjoy sleeping on our bed but as cats do they will do as they please, both respond to a shaker and get locked inside overnight after 8.30.
Maddy is our horse, she loves a brush but doesn’t expect one, she will be your best friend for the price of two or three carrots or apples each day.
We also have 6 young Hereford cows, very easy, they just need their water troughs filled daily.
Our place is about 15 minutes out of Central Ballarat, literally right next door to the Burrumbeet Racecourse and walking distance to Lake Burrumbeet.
Ballarat, in Central Victoria is now a thriving city established during the Gold Rush. Full of beautiful historic architecture and Australian history. Home to Soverign Hill, Cryall Castle, and M.A.D.E. The Museum of Australian Democracy, Her Majesty’s Theatre, The Regent Cinema. Ballarat also has a thriving Foodie scene and some excellent Cafes and Pubs.
Our place is far enough from town to be increadibly peaceful, we provide a relaxing and comfortable environment, air conditioning or fireplace, also Foxtel.
We are open for sitters to stay a bit longer, before we leave or after we get back if that is what suits.
