Two lovely easy going cats
I am a retired nurse and my husband retired electrical engineer. We travel to Canada at least once a year to visit family but this year we will be having some short breaks as well so will be looking for pet sitters for our 2 cats for a few dates. Millie is about 3 and Tabitha just over a year. Both very sweet gentle cats.
Our Home & Location
We live in a 4 bed detached house (one is used as a study) in a quiet area of north Bedford. There are 2 reception rooms, one used as dining/family room. We do not have a bath as we had our bathroom refitted with a good size walk in shower instead. There is a downstairs cloakroom with toilet and basin. We have a large kitchen/breakfast room and utility. Mowsbury park and woods are a few minutes walk and golf course about 10 minutes. The park is very popular with dog walkers and all very friendly. We know many of them as we had a dog until 18 months ago. There is also a cafe in the park. The bus passes the house going into town and there is a coach service going to Oxford and Cambridge both about an hour journey and very interesting university cities. It also goes to Milton Keynes shopping centre on the way to Oxford. There is the John Bunyan museum in town if you ever read Pilgrims Progress it might be of interest. There are many nice walks in the area including Priory Marina and along the river Gt Ouse which runs through Bedford . Being honest it is not the best shopping town although they have built a new cinema and hotel along a stretch of the river which I believe has a lot of restaurants etc. We are 55 mins by train into London St Pancras station. Local shops are within walking distance and supermarkets within 5 & 10 minute drive.
Responsibilities & Pets
Responsibilities are geared to the animals although watering the garden in hot weather would be appreciated as I love my garden. Both cats eat wet and dry food. The older cat , a rescue who is about 3 now is quite independent but does like a fuss and a tummy rub and will come and roll over at your feet when she wants attention. She loves to be out so if the weather is good she is only seen at food time. Tabitha or Tabby for short is just over a year, we have had her since she was 9 weeks. She likes to be near us most of the time and never wonders very far. They are both very sweet and gentle . We have a cat flap and both cats use the garden and so no need for a litter tray. There would be a lot of freedom with these two as they are low maintenance although Tabby does like company.
