More InformationHello. Thankyou for considering me, I sit cats, especially oriental cats. I speak Oriental Cat - all dialects.
Also Calico etc. Even sweet raggies! But I'm good on local lingo too.
Can do the unusual things too (eg fish and silkworms). Cats are my thing but really nice dogs can apply for special full guest membership arrangement.
My wife Lyn, known to some of you from way back, remains 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!
Update October 18: It looks as if a booking in early January has lapsed. It happens. So... if anyone is seeking a school hol sit.... apologies to folk I had to refuse to honour the (apparently) lapsed booking.
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. I was with the pictured lady again in August and go back mid February.
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 awesome 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" and "Kedi" 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... even aware of "phhhttt" (sideways ejection of offending pill) when associated with medications.
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.
A Novocastrian, I've lately been in Sydney, Tassie (yes, yet again) Avoca Beach and Blackheath. Dubbo and Port Macquarie coming up. Avoca Beach on repeat last week. Other shorter sits but quite a bit of spare time and 2018 wide open. Come to think of it 2018 is almost FREE! The three pictured ladies are in for that Feb/Mar booking. I stay local though for the time being.
nb. As a former teacher/lecturer visiting many schools, I had police checks more than once. Non-smoker, moderate alcohol.
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). 2018 is obviously first in best dressed!
