position filled from another site
I'm off for a Baltic States tour in May/June this year with a group of artists, but must feel absolutely secure about the comfort and well being of Puddy - hence the need for a cat tragic! Puddy is 8 years old and sleeps most of the day! However, I do need someone who would be here for him every evening and overnight.
Our Home & Location
I have a cosy 2-bedroom 1-bathroom cottage in the Blue Mountains of NSW Australia with a fairly low maintenance garden (no lawns). However I would ask that the sitter look after watering requirements as the sandy soil dries out quickly. My home is situated on a small block only 750m from the village and train station. There is also a "hail & ride" bus outside the door.The garden in the photo was at it's best in the Spring, but we've had a long hot and dry period and it's lost a bit of it's gorgeousness. Heating is with a wood-burning slow combustion stove + reverse cycle airconditioning. There are plenty of activities to immerse yourself in: bushwalking, touring the surrounds, golfing, swimming, cinema, art and antique galleries, a wonderful assortment of cafes and restaurants and good shopping. I am also fortunate to have lovely neighbours.
Responsibilities & Pets
First and foremost looking after Puddy; making sure the garden doesn't dry out; someone who will treat my home as they would their own. A non-smoker is a must.
