I am a cat lover in my early thirties looking for a house to sit while I visit Canberra for five weeks from early August until early September this year. I have lived in Canberra for six and a half years for my Masters and PhD studies at the ANU before going back to Malaysia two years ago.
I have been living with cats all my life, and I even had three cats while I was living in Canberra. I understand that cats have their own personalities--some love cuddles, some prefer to be close to their human but with minimal physical contact, most will have a crazy hour where they will run around the house, while some (especially the older ones) prefer to just sleep and stare all day, and only move for food and toilet breaks. No matter what their personality is, I love them all, and I will give them all the love and attention that they need.
I am a respectful person, especially when it comes to using other people's properties. Growing up in boarding school and shared houses have made respecting other people's things come naturally to me. I will treat your house (and pets!) with respect and only use minimal items for my daily needs. I will clean as I go to keep the house tidy. I will also bring your mail inside and garbage bin out on garbage day so people will know that the house is not empty, thus preventing break-ins.
In a nutshell, I can take care of your house and cats while you are away so you can enjoy your vacation without worries :)
