Location: Stanmore 2048
State: New South Wales
Duration: 18 days
Dates: 15-Apr-2018 - 02-May-2018
Requirements: We have a nice, very well located house.
The housesit has two main requirements - the care of our cats and the watering of our garden.
We have five rescue cats and they are all very special. So we need people who are VERY familiar with cats and understand their behaviour. Two of the cats have medical conditions, which require tablets to be administered to each of them daily.
Our preference is for a couple to housesit for us. So, if one partner becomes incapacitated in some way, the other can carry on. Because we have animals that need to be fed and looked after, we can't risk their starvation if something happens to a sole housesitter.
But we're not excluding single housesitters if they can have a suitable back-up person readily available.
A housesitter with a car is preferable, so that if something happens to any of the animals, they can be taken to the vet immediately. Our cats are all pretty docile and nothing of an urgent nature has ever happened to them; it's just that, while we're away, we'd like to feel assured that help is immediately on hand for them in case of an emergency.
Regarding the garden: while we don't have a huge garden, we do have a lot of plants which need regular hosing â about twice a week in April.
