DOGGONE CUTE HOUSEMATE: House sitters don't just look after your canine companions, they can also care for cats, birds, fish, rabbits, even reptiles, while you're away on holidays.

More than half of Australian households include a furry, four legged friend whose unconditional love sees many of them treated like a member of the family.
