We are looking for a housesitter to stay in our place for most of July. It's a nice comfortable house in the outer northern suburbs, five minutes walk from the train station. Local real estate agents would add that it's the same distance from a good shopping street with 'cosmopolitan' cafes. You can also walk to the local RSL and they have a cover man (solo cover band) playing there on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons.

Must not be afraid of chickens and must be able to cope with three cats. I don't want to be worried about them while I'm away.

If you are interested, or know someone who might be, get in touch at sillsbend AT gmail DOT com.

If you get a surfeit, or is it a surplus, my brother is looking for a similar useful person at a similar. In Coburg. Who said there was a homelessness problem.

'Sexy' laid down some brilliance at mine, too. Not sure what's with the spam that comes out as rectangles, but anywayhoo... will keep an ear to the ground for you.

David David David:
housesitters are hard to get because they are very special people.
They need to be trustworthy responsible and reliable, have references from reputable sources, and you trust them with your house and everything in it, including the welfare and happiness of your precious pets.
Good people generally have homes and lives of their own, which cannot be abandoned for 7 weeks so the Host can go to europe.
Oh yes indeed, a good sitter is a true find.
I am booked through to September 2010 ALL by past hosts.
I have sat horses, alpacas, ducks and chooks, cats rabbits pigeons, and budgies, every kind of dog needing every weird kind of diet and medicine.
where people saving for their own home list themselves, and pray they don't have a garage sale at your house while you're gone.

I would gladly offer myself for consideration (I rather fancy the idea of the short-term companionship of fowls), but, alas, I'm in Brisbane.

Okay. I'll do it.

What are the neighbours like?

Easygoing? Hope so.

I know a good little Brownie/Bwca (who apparently has a sideline in PAs and sometimes goes by the simple name of Ann O'dyne). She would have been the obvious suggestion. Seems she's booked up for a while.

It's just a pity there aren't actually four of her.
