Why I am on here;
I love living with animals but unfortunately I am not settled enough to have my own full-time. I'm currently deciding where I want to live so I enjoy trying out different cities and suburbs.
My history/experience with animals/pets:
My mother is a vet nurse and i spent my youth in rural areas, so naturally I ended up frequently interacting and caring for big dogs, cats, sheep, birds (native & domesticated), cows and horses. I have always sort out roommates who have pets and also volunteered regularly at the RSPCA in the Happy Paws, Happy Hearts program.
I have house/pet sat for many people over the years officially and unofficially.

Animals I have cared for in recent years include cats, dogs (big & small breads), ferrets, fish, horses and chickens. I am also practiced in administering oral medications to cats and dogs.
Pre-pandemic I was part of the Couch Surfing community as both a guest and host. Thus I am well versed in the art of respecting and sharing the homes of others, and also understand what its like to open your home to new people.
I am able to work fully remotely, however if I'm close enough to an office (Docklands, Melbourne). I like to go into the office two to three times a week.
