We are searching for a house sitter over Christmas and New Year to look after our beloved cat, Hetti.
Hetti is gentle and somewhat suspicious of new humans, so she is likely to spend quite a lot of time outside. She loves to sun- and moon-bake on the front porch. Her requirements are simple: fresh water, breakfast, dinner and the cat flap left permanently ajar.
We live 2 blocks from the bay that stretches across to the CBD. There are bus stops at both ends of the street. Williamstown North and Newport train stations are both in walking distance. The shopping centre is a 10 minute walk. The beach is a 5 minute drive.
The house was renovated last year. Landscaping works are planned but have not started, so the front and back outdoor spaces are fields of weeds that do not require attention.
It would be great if you could water the indoor plants once only. Cat food, shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels and bed linen all provided. Couples are welcome. Sitter(s) to provide their own food but can reach into the pantry for herbs, spices, oils, teas, coffee, etc.
