Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • A cat
Our cat Arabella is an adorable medium hair tabby. She's wary of new people, but should warm up to you over time as long as you let her do her own thing. Once she's comfortable with you, she may sit on your lap for pats or join you on the bed while you're sleeping (she's mostly pretty good about this, but sometimes climbs on you in the morning when she's bored).

Arabella is an inside only cat, but we allow her out on the balcony when we're there to supervise. She doesn't need any specific medications or any special treatment, just regular food and someone to clean her litter.

Our apartment is cozy and relaxing, but is still close to the action of Yarraville Village and the Melbourne CBD. There are parks nearby and it's only a 5 - 10 minute walk through Yarraville Village to the Yarraville train station, and a 15 minute train ride to the city. Yarraville Village has a relaxed community vibe and has a variety of good quality cafes, pubs, shops, and a great local cinema.

As homebodies, we have an enormous TV which is plugged into the internet and has Netflix access (providing you have a subscription). For the game lovers, we have both the PS4 and XBOX One game consoles and a variety of games, and for the movie lovers we have a (limited) range of DVD's to watch. For anyone interested in any of these options, or just sitting down, we also have a super-comfy couch.
We have a bookcase with a limited selection of fiction, non-fiction, education textbooks (aw yeah), graphic novels, and cookbooks. If none of that works for you, there is also a community book-swap box nearby (please don't swap our books though).
The apartment stays reasonably cool in the summer, but has air conditioning in the living room and a fan in the bedroom if it gets a bit too hot.
