My husband and I are going away on a last-minute trip from Christmas night (25th) and arrive back on Friday 29th Dec mid afternoon. We are looking for someone to stay at our house for these 4 nights and look after our babies.

We have a 1 year old Golden Retriever named Ollivander, a geriatric cat named Voldemort and a Sun Conure named Charlie. Ollivander is vision impaired and while he knows our house and yard very well he can be sometimes anxious.

Looking after the creatures would involve:
- Feeding Ollivander twice per day and ensuring his water bowl is always full
- Medicating Ollivander with tablets each morning
- Playing with Ollivander in our big backyard (he loves playing chasey). Taking him for walks is not necessary.
- Ensuring Voldemort's food and water are always full and giving her lots of treats
- Medicating Voldemort with oral liquid each morning (super easy - she licks it from the syringe)
- Scooping Voldemort's poop into the toilet
- Ensuring Charlie's food and water are kept full
- Providing Charlie with fruit each morning.
- Taking Charlie out of her big outdoor daytime cage into her nighttime cage each night.
- Lots of pats and cuddles for all 3 creatures!

We would definitely prefer someone who is comfortable with birds as well as cats and dogs and who would be willing to allow Charlie out of her cage for a few hours each day. She will happily sit on your shoulder while you watch tv.

We have a spare bedroom that our petsitter will sleep in and of course the wifi password is all yours. Couples/friends welcome to stay.

Hi Mel
I'm around for this Christmas holiday period. I've done similar tasks through Airtasker and Gumtree. Am happy to look after your fur and feathered pets and treat them like my own. I can meet you and your pets before hand too. I'm reliable and trustworthy.
Cheers

Hey Mel, I would defiantly be available on these days and have previous house sitting references back in Perth, I've recently moved here so I have lots of spare time on my hands 😂

I mainly have experience with horses dogs and cats however I had birds at home so am fully comfortable with all your pets and medicating.

Please let me know if you would like to chat more or if I can help while you're away ☺️
My step daughter who is 17 and her friend who is 18 might be interested in doing this for you. Also if you go through a pet sitting website a lot of them cover insurance.
Hi Mel
Also have administered medication to pets too. They'll receive lots of love and cuddles.
