I am a music teacher (violinist) and a lover of all furry creatures - and non furry too.
I have housesat numerous times with my daughter. We have looked after dogs, cats, birds, chickens, rabbits, reptiles, mice and horses and would love your fur babies (or feathered) to be our next new friends.
Our first petsit was looking after Bozo - a sweetheart corgi cross who was very ancient, mostly blind and deaf and very wise. Bella and I looked after him over the course of 18months or so when his family when on short trips. We loved spending time with him and having some girl time together by the river near his house. Sadly Bozo passed away from old age (we still miss him) but getting to know him was a blessing and a joy and started us out with housesitting.
Our most recent housesit was for two gorgeous German shepherds (one 9 years and one 10 months) and their feathered and furry friends. Lot's of walks for the young pup, which all doggies need.
My hubby Neel is renovating so we are currently looking for some lovely pets to stay with and look after while he continues to trash ..err fix the bathroom and kitchen and ploughs on with what seems to be an ever increasing renovation! Bella and I are seeking some peace and quite, for her to study and for me to relax. I try to plan major works around our housesits.
Neel doesn't join us on housesits as he is doing the work at home. Our son Jascha used to volunteer at RSPCA so he, like Bella and I, is a big fan of new furry friends however he works full time as well as helping at home so also doesn't usually housesit.
We will look after your garden and of course maintain your home by keeping it clean, tidy and safe. We are non-smokers.
I can provide references via phone or in writing.
As we live in Melbourne once we have discussed your needs and requirements via phone, email or message we can easily come and meet you and your pets, giving everyone an opportunity to see if its a good fit.
Have a great day :)
