More information about this house sitter

I'm a mature non-smoking female, reliable and responsible, and I've been housesitting since mid 2012 in Brisbane, Sydney and the NSW north and south coasts. I am taking a break from working, having been employed in the tertiary education sector in Sydney since 1990.

I enjoy the variety of house sitting in various locations, and caring for animals, houses and gardens. I'm an animal lover and do my best to make their time away from their owners happy and stress free. As I'm not currently working I have the time to spend with your pets and to ensure homes and gardens are looked after. I've had most experience in caring for cats, small and medium dogs, and large quieter dogs, and have looked after chickens, fish and large vegie gardens.

I can supply a police check and full references, but here are some testimonials from people for whom I've house sat:

"I can only say good things about her. My dogs absolutely adored her and her calm demeanour. My house was in excellent condition when I returned and even my outdoor plants were still alive." Rita, Sydney

"Three months is a long stay. I have no hesitation in recommending Cathy to anybody for stays of any length, long or short. We returned to find everything in perfect order, and that Cathy and my dog Lucy had bonded well" Cecilia, Sydney

"Our dog Snoopy took an immediate liking to Cathy's soft and gentle manner. We were most impressed with her care of him as unfortunately he got a paralysis tick. Cathy handled the situation superbly and took Snoopy back and forth to the vet. We are very grateful he recovered under her care and attention." Heather and Dennis, Brisbane

"We were very happy with her diligence in writing down all jobs that needed doing, and on arriving home we found our house and gardens were in great shape. Her love and attention to our dog was very much appreciated, and we know that you could feel secure in the knowledge that Cathy would do her utmost to look after your home and pets." Judy & Ron, Brisbane

"All my neighbours spoke highly of her caring nature towards the dogs and what a friendly and pleasant lady she is. She was exceptionally kind to my old dog who was very unwell at the time. The dog needed a lot of extra care and attention and Cathy did so with no hesitation." Petula, Sydney

"One of my cats suffers severe and painful gum inflammation from stress (and everything stresses him). I was so happy to return home to find him content and happy with no gum issues. Both cats were relaxed and happy and their shiny coats reflected this. My flat was clean and tidy when I returned and my plants looked more loved by Cathy than by myself." Felicity, Sydney

"Our two indoor cats appeared to be healthy and calm when we returned, and were clearly comfortable in her company. In addition to caring for our indoor pets, Cathy cared for the fish in our pond and our hens. She was happy to let the hens out to free range every day, and as a result the chooks looked very healthy when we came home" Kimberly, Bangalee, NSW

"The property Cathy looked after for us is a 5 acre farmlet near Jervis Bay, NSW. Cathy proved to be completely reliable, and we could not have been more pleased with the manner in which she looked after it for us." Don, Jerrabomberra NSW

Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to hearing from you,
