Home with 2 cats in Switzerland
We are a family of 4, I am English my husband is French. We speak English & French at home but our children go to the local German speaking school. We have 2 elderly cats and a young golden retriever dog, Dylan, but he usually comes with us on holiday. We live in the German speaking part of Switzerland, Schaffhausen which is just 40 minutes from Zurich. I usually get around with my electric bike or I use the very efficient local transport. We enjoy walking with our dog or taking trips along the river, bbq-ing at home & trying out the local restaurants. I enjoy reading & Christophe has a new-found passion for DIY! Our 2 children enjoy swimming & playing football.
Our Home & Location
Our house has 4 bedrooms with a large living & dining area. We are located 10 minutes from Schaffhausen city centre which can be accessed by bus (every 10 minutes), bike or car. We are close to the Rhein waterfalls (the largest in Europe) & the Rhein river. We are 40 minutes away from Zurich. There is an excellent outdoor/indoor swimming pool complex 1km away, local shops & the city centre is just 5 minutes by bike. A beautiful forest walk is 100metres from the house & the Rhein river just 5 minutes away.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have 2 elderly cats who are very quiet but enjoy company. The go outside just now and again and sleep a lot. Didi, the white cat, is diabetic and needs 2 injections per day. He is easily distracted with a treat while administering the injection and doesn’t seem to notice. It is surprisingly easy to give the injections ( I was quite apprehensive about it but it’s very easy). Felix is an Abersynnian cat who is adorable and loves a tickle too.
