Pair of Cat Lovers needed (with their own car please!) for 2 adorable house cats
We (John & Wendy) are a married couple who have taken early/semi retirement and despite living in this beautiful part of Spain, still enjoy travelling; both here and abroad.
Our 2 fur babies - Cookie & Coco, need to be fed and cleaned up after and we prefer a couple to be here to do that; as they enjoy human company and feel it is much better for two people to share the responsibilities! They are both Siamese cross (just over eighteen months old and one is slightly mad... ) both litter trained, micro chipped, neutered girls....
We are so happy to have found 'Trusted Housesitters' and have already had some lovely couples looking after the babies/house since we joined - do please read their positive feedback! + More info
Our Home & Location
We have a lovely 2/3 bedroom (the study has an occasional sofa bed), 2 bathroom modern , single story, detached villa on the edge of a village in Almeria, southern Spain, close to the Murcia border. The house and village are on made roads and it is a very convenient location for sitters to drive to (but sadly our house is NOT SUITED TO MOTOR HOMES as they wouldn´t fit on the drive/under the carport!) - we are only 3 minutes from the A7 motorway, 25/30 minutes from various beaches, 10 minutes to Huercal Overa town and between 1 hour/1 hour 45 minutes from 3 international airports (Almeria, Murcia and Alicante). The villa has a lovely large outside garden room for warmer days with a 3 person hot tub and 4/5 seat corner sofa with a large outside coffee/dining table. Inside there is a large, modern open plan living room, newly fitted kitchen and a very efficient log burner for colder times of the year, as well as other heating. Our bedrooms have air conditioning, as well as the living area and study, for both summer and winter. The main bathroom has a bath with an overhead shower - the en-suite bathroom off the guest room (which is where our sitters will sleep) has a shower. As we have only been here since January 2017 all our furniture is new and modern, apart from a couple of treasured pieces! The village has a bar, a small shop/Taberna - that also serves food and is the social hub of the village; for both the Spanish and Foreigners, a doctors, pharmacy and church. As we are close to both Huercal Overa (Almeria) and Lorca (Murcia); you´ll find far more shops/amenities there.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feed the cats twice a day plus snacks, empty their litter box as required , stop the cats wrecking the place and fuss and play with them as they are our fur babies!! Just generally look after our home whilst we are away.
