pet sitter needed in Bournemouth!
I am 42 years of age, 3 children plus my pets.... my husband works away a lot so find it hard to plan our trips to see him as most of the time it is very last minute. I recently put the cats/dog in kennels and since their return to us they've been very unsettled and not them selves so I think care in their own home would suit all of us much better.
Our Home & Location
We live about 5 minutes drive from the centre of Bournemouth, and a short walk away from the local high street. Beaches are a 10 minute drive and also the New Forest not far away.
There is a park with playground, dog area and large field/woods just over the road from us - this is our usual dog walk for Rocky....
Our house is detached with 5 bedrooms, open plan with garage and nice garden. I take pride in keeping the house in immaculate condition (hard in the summer with kids everywhere though!)
The sitters bedroom is not en suite but bathroom facilities next door to bedroom. The room has a double bed and tv with apple TV and dvd. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Our pets are very low maintenance, the cats are so easy, the kittens are 5 months old and the older cat,Ronnie, is just over a year. Ronnie is very much an outdoor cat and seems to get on well with the kittens. they are very affectionate, often come in the house crying for a cuddle or food!
They get on well with the dog, they'll be play fighting or sleeping together and have no problems with each other.
Rocky is nearly a year and very needy, we have a baby gate so he's not able to access the rest of the house, just allowed in the main kitchen/sitting area. He hasn't really got out of the habit of peeing on beds so not allowed upstairs! He's not so happy with the company of other dogs, seems to prefer the cats! He'll bark at other dogs or run from big dogs so not ideal to be walked off the lead yet.
Rocky eats twice a day, loves his treats and clears the floor after kids have tea! Needs a couple of walks, even if it's round the block, just to get him used to being outside.
I would expect and hope that the house just be kept clean and tidy, I can provide all food etc needed, would expect you to feel at home and comfortable here.
