PLEASE MAKE SURE TO CHECK MY CALENDAR (LINK ABOVE) TO SEE IF I AM AVAILABLE).
My first name is Helen, but I go by my middle name, Patricia.
Am unencumbered and happy to take positions in other states in Australia.
. I only house and cat sit. no pooches, am not strong enough for dog walking and care.
. I need to be within walking distance of shops for supplies or on a bus/tram route to same.
. I do not drive any longer.
I am American and returned in 2015 to live in Australia after being in the USA for several years caring for elderly parents, now passed on.
My son was born in Australia and lives in Melbourne with his family.
I moved to Townsville, QLD, from Denmark with my late husband who was from Copenhagen. Our son was born there in Townsville..
During the years of return to the USA, I house-sat in the state of Virginia in the Charlottesville area. Duties included looking after an elderly gentleman who owned a large horse stud, during his wife's travels to visit their children. Also cared for various cats. These were large estates with other day staff, but needed someone at night. I worked at the University of Virginia during the day.
I am a good cook, enjoy housekeeping, and will look after your house and cat(s) with care and consideration. Your plants will be alive and thriving on your return.
Am happy to take care of special instructions that you may leave in my care.
I am quite comfortable living on my own. Enjoy small country towns and rural settings,
It would be good to have a connection with either your family or close friends/neighbors to guide me in the area/community in which you live.
I write essays, enjoy a wide variety of music, am a birder, not afraid of critters - be they snakes or spiders or whatever else may be encountered on your property. I lived and worked in Maningrida, Arnhemland, NT, in the early to mid 1980s, and have respect for the many cultures in Australia.
In summing up, let me say that caring for your cats and property will be my pleasure and responsibility.
