Retiree/s House Sitter/Pet Sitter
I am a 52 year old widow and had been with my husband from 16 years of age - we were together for 36 years, married for 29. I was devastated after losing him and realized you are here for a good time not a long time and decided to start travelling and to cross off some of 'our' bucket list.
Our Home & Location
I have a 5 acre property with 2 horses (which I have arranged to be tended to twice a day by a friend) and I have property maintenance/gardeners who come here weekly for 2 hours. It is a 4 bedroom 2 bathroom, 3 toilet (one toilet is outside) house which has reverse cycle air conditioning in the main living area and master bedroom and ceiling fans in most rooms. I can arrange for a house cleaner to come for 2 hours every fortnight if required. The house is located in Oakford, WA, which is 10 minutes from Byford town. There are plenty of amenities and facilities including Woolworths, Coles, IGA, a Post Office and many take away and dine in restaurants including, Hungry Jacks, McDonalds, Chicken Treat, KFC, Pizza, Kebabs and Chinese. Armadale Shopping centre is approximately 20 minutes heading north and Gateways Shopping centre the same distance, heading west. You will not be isolated, but will need to be able to drive to get to any amenities.
Responsibilities & Pets
Miss Chickadee is a rescue magpie with several disabilities - she has scissor beak, deformed feet and was attacked by local magpies and has no flight or tail feathers. I need someone to keep her company, it does not have to be 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - if you are going to be out for any length of time, the TV will keep her company, but she is extremely partial to human companionship. The only duties that are required is that her cage is cleaned, water and food changed daily. She has lived in my house all of her life and is not able to be released because of her disabilities.
