More Information

Hello. Thankyou for considering me, I sit cats, especially oriental cats. I speak Oriental Cat - all dialects. All origins.
Also Calico etc. Even Raggie! But I'm good on local lingo too.
Can do the unusual things too (eg fish and silkworms). Cats are my real thing though. Good with dogs. Choosy but very attentive! Love whippets and labs. Have a labradoodle friend. Grew up with everyone having a dog. I speak fluent basic Woof and some Yap, with words such as walk, biscuit and sit... I'm understood by most canine friends.
My wife Lyn, known to some of you from way back, was in the final stages of Alzheimer's but I've been persuaded that I should get on with things, so here I am! Been out and about a bit, and now for the minding!
Thank you.

Update May 10:
I get around, so if the opportunity arises I throw in my hat...
Sydney is VERY easy for me as I'm only at beautiful Lake Macquarie. Just home from the lady in the pic in Sydney. The ACT area always is an attraction. Victoria is my childhood home. Central and North Coast great.
Two other short stays so probably time for you!

Born in Australia
Lived in several countries (as opposed to "visited there"). Been in many other countries, travelled widely; love movies and music (although I believe that much good music probably stopped around 1985); avid reader and theatre-goer; have five great grandchildren (but of course they live with their parents!); clean and healthy. I care about property and I'm careful with ours and other people's.

I know a fuchsia from a gardenia/magnolia... and I can tell a hawk from a handsaw.

All cats are fine. I speak and understand Cat. They often have quite important philosophical things to say. Had lots of them, met plenty during our Mindahome time, and love them. From Siamese (had several of our own), Burmese, Birmans, to ordinary old Gingers (I love their voices... so small and squeaky... seen "A Street Cat Named Bob" yet?), Tabbies, and Witches' Cats (the black ones with green eyes - great cats those, usually very independent). I never met a cat that could resist the old charm for long... and I know all their tricks when it comes to pills and needles...
Have to admit I rather like chooks too... there's something about a chook, chooking its way through the garden. I do have quite a lot of contact with birds in general - Love all birds except Indian mynas!
I recently met four gorgeous Oriental feline ladies and am in line for another journey, followed by a renewed meeting with three favourite (yes!) Mosman Siamese ladies later this year.

A Novocastrian, I've lately been in Sydney, Tassie (yes, yet again, twice in 2016 with grandkids on holiday) and Brisbane. Likely my Mosman ladies some time but nothing settled yet. Tassie for Pam and Princess much of October. Other shorter sits but quite a bit of spare time.

nb. As a former teacher/lecturer visiting many schools, I had police checks more than once. Non-smoker, moderate drinker. I can always send more photos to you direct (you can have straight ones, scenic ones, or me eating ice cream).

I've had to say no to a few lovely offers over the past four years, especially from former sit-friends, but now am in the wide world again so anything to do with meeting a cat is welcome! I feel sad for anybody who doesn't understand moggies.
Thank you. I also love chooks. I speak several fluent dialects of dog. My tutor, Professor Wecomefirzt, is an excellent teacher.
Please note also that I'll spend EVERY NIGHT and often all or much of the day at YOUR place. A commitment well ahead is not a problem (quite the reverse) ~ D.j
Late note... June 24-July 21 just booked thanks.
