Paphos house with two kitties
Jet pilot and maritime industry professional who love to travel worldwide, enjoy all things cultural (theatres, operas, books) but also all things relaxing and those lazy days with Netflix. We love travelling as much as we love our cats. However, these two do not go together and over the years it has become difficult to locally find the care for them that we need when away for longer than a weekend. I'd like my cats to have a daily human contact and care, rather than a daily feeding visit and a quick clean of kitty stuff. There is no need for 24/7 play and attention, but they love for a human to play with, and to be nearby to cuddle next to when watching tv, relaxing or sleeping (or to follow to the kitchen). We hate to deprive them of this when away.
Our Home & Location
HOUSE PHOTOS COMING SOON (have to drive to take some - sorry!)
The house is a two-floor one bedroom (second bedroom is the iron and storage room) terraced house in the area of Geroskipou, Paphos. Living room, kitchen (not open plan) and toilet on the ground floor, and big bathroom and two rooms upstairs. Tiny garden (grass area and a decked area to sit or BBQ) at the back accessible from the kitchen. Quick access to the highway, airport, city centre; with nearby bakery, kiosk, petrol station and other amenities (including a vet down the road). Close to the seaside and tourist area....

Responsibilities & Pets
Care for my kitties as if they were your own :). The responsibilities are the usual of feeding, cleaning, cuddling and playing with them. They are indoor cats and do not go out. Both cats were re-homed strays, and while they are full of love and cuddles they still have the animal in them so please do not expect them to be fluffy toys or the type of a sofa cat that behaves like a stuffed bear. Claws and light biting may come out in a friendly play with the human, but they do not attack or bite like wild animals. If they get scared or need to adjust to new people, they will simply just hide (and come out when the curiosity takes over) and be a bit skittish. They love playing and wrestling with each other and as they tumble on the floor the fur will float in the air - but it is all play and fun time.
Pan was re-homed Jan 2016 when found as a kitten on a busy Nicosia street. She is incredibly fluffy and...round in shape (don't judge, no fat shaming here ;) ). I like to call her chowchow or bear cub. Not as active and likes her space and peace, although Jupiter keeps her on her toes. If she takes liking to you, will lie on your chest while you enjoy Netflix. She just loves playing with hairbands, so please thrown them and she will fetch....
Jupiter - re-homed Jan 2018 when found... in Nicosia. The cat in socks. He at times is a little hyperactive devil bouncing off the walls and chasing shadows - like any cat in their teenage years would. But deep inside he is a sweet cuddly and clingy kitty, with a strange patch of fur behind the ears, who will find any opportunity to be petted and stretch his paws near your face. He likes to sit in corners and look at... ghosts?, and enjoys digging in the litter box as if it was a sand box made to play. Jups loves to climb everything and anything, sitting on bathtubs (expect a shower buddy), and his IKEA toy rat and when restless for play will bring him to you to play fetch. Not a fan of picking up and cuddling, but will stay on your lap and purr away.
Both kitties have been together since early August and have made an incredible progress from hissing and claw fight to sleeping next to each other and playing together. I am yet to see them groom one another and cuddle together, but good things take time.
Both are clean, brushed, vaccinated and dewormed, neutered and healthy (apart from the predictable future weight problem of Pan). Fussy eaters, as one would obviously expect from spoilt cats. The claws are not clipped and they are free to scratch the scratch posts and well, occasionally the random furniture. They have no opportunity of running free and climbing trees so me having the soft heart let them enjoy their wild side indoors. + More info
