Hi Mary,
My parents may be interested in someting like this. They are Echuca at the moment but finish there in June, not sure of date. They would have references etc if needed. Dad loves cats too. I will talk to them if you like. Let me know.

Craig - Stick with your description - it's a hoot

"two legged feather duster with attitude" - still grinning

This raises one of the questions we have asked ourselves regarding extended travel and getting our house looked after at the same time.
For us to travel in the southern states means leaving our house during cyclone season ( travelling south in winter is not an option as neither of us can handle cold weather). Equally we realise not many people want to be here when it's 35c and 85% humidity. ( That's when the barra are biting though)

I looked under the accomodation topic but found nothing relating to house sitting.
How do travellers who take an extended trip deal with the situation?????????

wd
suggest you may be better to start this as as new thread.
This has come up before can't find the thread.
Think there is a house sitting swapping site somewhere too.

G'day

Came across this site a couple of days ago. We have never used them so don't know from personal experience what they would be like -

This is a good resource but not very user friendly.Requires heaps of trawling through potential careers many messages and takes a lot of time for a result.
Eg started searching for a sitter in Jan for the june bit.
Had 1 more or less definite till march when an ill health issue stopped that.
Next contact was an expat expecting to return from NZ to a job waiting in Ozfor May.2 weeks ago the job hit the finance mess and was a no go.
Hence the post here as thought might find some one who would like a rest from full time on the road life.
I think a house sitter spot on the exploroz site would be a great resource to all members.
The site I used is
www.housecareers.com
Thanks,
mary
