More information about this house sitter

Meow, meow, woof woof, tweet tweet, yes, we are pet tragic’s. Just love em’. But on the serious side, extensive information about us follows. Were told it helps make the whole process seamless, especially by first time users. Hoping you’ve got a couple of minutes to read all ….

About us……Monica and I have been enjoying life as full-time pet sitters since 2021.

We home/pet sit on the Gold Coast 4216 only thank you as we are building a portfolio of regular resits, dog walks and daily pet feedings in that area and intend to for many years.

Of note is that we have the ability to overlap furpal sits as one of us can stay in each of the overlapping pet sits. It also gives us the ability to do last-minute housesits for our regulars.

We are loving it! Especially and added to the love we receive from the pets is the appreciation we receive from the grateful pet owners.

First up, often asked, and yes, police checks are done and available. We are fully COVID vaccinated, fit and physically capable of tasks requiring fitness as well, for example walking large dogs.

We’ve owned/loved a variety of pets- cats/dogs/fish/chickens/other birds and reptiles.

We are non-smokers and very light to almost none drinkers.

We get out and about for a few hours only through the day and enjoy quiet TV days and nights at home with the furry or feathered pals.

We really enjoy the adventure of experiencing new pets and befriending the homeowners.

Areas we apply for are areas we have and want to do more regular sits in.

You won’t be disappointed, we want you to have a worry free break and come home to happy fur pal/s/pets/animals with your castle in great steed.

We need GREAT references to continue this home sitting passion and that’s what we will be working for.

We are definitely hygienic, tidy and very respectful of others property including being respectful of the neighbours.

We have owned houses that have had pools so we know how to look after a swimming pool if need be.
On longer stays It’s no problem to mow and edge the lawn, water all plants, maintain the pool etc if needed.

Also, it’s no problem if you have a relative or friend who wants to drop in for a cup of tea or coffee and chat any day unannounced to check that things are all hunky dory. A pleasure to meet them actually.

We do not bring pets to pet sitting assignments.

My daughter who works extensively in pet and animal rescue, fostering, socialising and rehoming has my only pet, an incredible cat/Princess Leia.
Leia is a share pet :) as is my daughter’s other pets and when either of us go away on holidays we look after each other’s.

The fact that you want pet sitters says a lot to us as it means that you love your pet/s dearly and want it/them cared for in their own home in which they are comfortable and familiar with.

We are familiar with strict diet and medical regimes for pets as well as we have had older pets, special needs pets and foster rescue animals that have needed extra care and socialising before rehoming in forever homes.

I have engaged pet sitters myself in the past and understand the value of having trustworthy, professional carers for your pets and home.

We take great pride in our reliability, professionalism and trustworthiness!

Our sports/activities include walking/dog walking, fishing and sailing, I actually compete on my Windsurfer (since the 80’s) and I have recently competed in the Australian National Windsurfer Class Titles. The World Windsurfer Class titles is on my agenda as well, ancient mariner division of course:) I’m 65 years young and fit.

All dwellings and critters, houses, cottages, cabins, units and townhouses are fine with us. Huge or tiny.

Daily updates, photos or videos will be sent of your pet/s being spoilt. Not too many interruptions :-), you’re on holidays or in some cases an emergency or important non holiday event.

We will love and bond with your babies/pals, treasure and look after your home diligently, we just do!!!

Re Things we bring:
We are quite self-sufficient as we bring our own sheets, pillows, doonas, towels, toilet paper, laundry, kitchen and bathroom soaps and needs, favourite kitchen appliances, placemats, ye old faithful large cutting board and of course food.

FYI also, when our face-to-face/furpal meet & greet/interview/acceptance/familiarisation is substantially in advance of your departure we like and find that homeowners also like and want a second familiarisation a day or two before departure. Us too! It’s usually when we pick up keys and or codes.

And as is the norm also please provide written instructions on your pals feeding, meds if needed and exercise regime, likes and dislikes, issues if any with other animals and adults or children, etc.

Also as is the norm again :) pls provide all contacts you deem necessary, vet, nearby, family/friends and of course your best contact while away.

But wait, there’s more :) not much.

…. Instructions to operate the TV if there is multiple remotes. Ha ha, as this pretty much was our most asked question to the homeowner after their departure on my first home sits.

…..Instructions on any idiosyncrasies for anything :-)

….. Yard, indoor and outdoor plant requirements and anything else you need done or feel I need to know.

Thanking you very much for reading all, yes, it’s epic, but I feel answers most queries, particularly if it’s your first time requesting housesitters.

Hoping to hear from you soon, please contact here with any questions you have to then hopefully organise a phone chat, then a meet up.

Best wishes from Bob and Monica, hoping to make lifelong friends with you and your furpal/s along the way. :-)
