Looking for Animal Lovers to take care of our Fur Babies and Home whilst we are on Holidays
We are a 34 year old couple (Ryan and Michelle) who absolutely love our furbabies
We have an 11 year old little staffy girl dog called Soko, an 11 year old Chihuahua girl called Mink and an 11 year old female medium haired domestic cat called Lulu.
The gang have been raised together and have always lived inside. They are our family and are extremely close to our hearts as they have been with us through thick and thin.
It is always hard to leave them when we travel but we want them to be as comfortable as possible and keep them in their home....
We own our own house and it doesn't disappoint - it is a great space for someone to spend in a great location with everything at your doorstep. It is extremely spacious, full of natural light, has 4 outdoor areas and has an warm yet industrial warehouse feel. + More info

Responsibilities & Pets
Ultimately our pets are our main concerns. They are not demanding and have no medical issues.
Our cat Lulu is very much happy to be on her own - occasionally she will come over for some snuggles but otherwise is happy to laze in whatever spot she decides on for the day.
Our pets have full roam of the house as they are treated like our family.
As long as our cat is feed twice a day, has water in her bowl and gets her litter tray cleaned daily she is happy.
Our dog Soko is a typical staffy who is happiest in the company of a human. She is a big softie with a beautiful heart and just wants to be where you are. She does suffer from minor separation anxiety like most staffies but it isn't an issue.
Mink is a sweet little girl who loves a pat and being by your side....
Ryan and I are getting married on Feb 9th 2019 and we will be staying in the city from the 8th to the 10th of Feb. We will then be going home for a couple of days where we head of for a short honeymoon on the 12th of Feb in Byron Bay. We will be taking the dogs us so from the 12th onwards you will only be sitting our cat Lulu.
Michelle works from home so Soko and Mink are used to having company a lot of the time so we would prefer house sitters who are happy to to be home a lot and not leave them alone for extended periods of time.
They will also need to be feed twice a twice , have fresh water, be walked every couple of days (short walks) and most of all just be loved and have company. They do their business on a balcony (they are toilet trained and there is a doggy door) and this will need to be cleaned every couple of days.
Soko does sleep on the bed so you need to be ok with dogs in the bed - we are not sure what her preference will be with strangers as we have a doggy bed that she occasionally sleeps in when she feels like it.
We want our home to be treated with respect. We do own it and have recently renovated it and want it to be kept clean and tidy as we maintain it.. We also want you to enjoy your time in here as it is a beautiful space and in the most sought after position in Brunswick. You will have everything at your doorstep. We want you to take full advantage of the features - we have nbn Internet, Netflix, Stan, Apple TV, a large shower and bath, heating in the bedroom and the living room, a Nespresso coffee machine, a NutriBullet, washer / dryer, aircon, and great outdoor areas - you are welcome to have guests over but please just be respectful of our property and belongings. + More info
