2 beautiful domestic tabby cats
This is the second time I have used Trusted House Sitters. My first experience was in April this year 2018, I could not have been happier. My cats are my fur children and live inside with a netted cat deck. They are loved as part of our family. I have recently retired but am very busy working as a civil celebrant. I am looking for a female sitter or a couple who love cats.
Our Home & Location
We live in Lenah Valley under Mt Wellington in Hobart. We have wallabies grazing on our lawns and two possums live under the house. Our house is a high pole house with lots of windows and sunshine. You are close to public transport and to the North Hobart strip with great cafes, restaurants and galleries. Our house is warm and secure with fresh new carpets, a heat pump, a comfortable bed and comfortable stress less chairs in a large sunny lounge room.
Responsibilities & Pets
My cats are indoor only. Firstly I would need to trust that the sitter did not accidentally let my cats out. I would want them to feed my cats breakfast at around 7am each morning, refresh their water and clean the wet and solid material from their litter. I have two litter stations. One of my cats loves cuddling and the other is very timid and scared of other people. The sitter may not see one of my cats as she may just come up at night to eat. I talk to both of them all day. Yoyo is the cuddly one and Tulip is the scared one. When just my husband and I are home Tulip comes up for breakfast and lies in the sun. They both talk a lot and love to go out in the fresh air on the cat deck. At night I give them both a small handful of dry biscuits. If it is cold I wrap a hot water bottle in a rug and put it into Yoyos bed. Tulip is not interested in a hot water bottle but they both have many warm spots to sleep. They are 12 and 13 years old so they are not youngsters. We both love them very much.
