Christmas in Chichester - care of Otto the cat only in this instance.
We live in a pretty detached property close to the centre of Chichester. We both love our home and are keen on design and interiors. We are away for 5 days over Christmas and on this occasion are taking Gizzy the dog but Otto would love some company over the Christmas period.
Although we have close family members nearby we are looking for a sitter who is willing to stay at the property, as Otto the cat is getting older and does not like being let so much any more for long periods, and relying on family and friends can be problematic when unavailable. We are new to Trusted Housesitters but looking at the reviews see it as a great alternative....
Both my husband and I work but enjoy our Pets in our free time, we spend summers on the beach with the dog or like to walk in the South Downs. Both of us are pet lovers and would like to do what is best for them. + More info
Our Home & Location
We are located close to the centre of Chichester - a beautiful cathedral city which is situated some 20 miles to the west of Portsmouth and some 35 miles to the East of Brighton.
The town centre has good shopping and a weekly market. We also the home of the Chichester Festival theatre which offers a truly the best of cutting edge theatre. We are some 6 miles north of the beach and are also keen sailors. The well known beach of East Head is just south of us. That and the beautiful South Downs just a few miles North offers great walks and pub lunches . Goodwood house and all the activities it offers just a few miles away - offering events such as Glorious Goodwood, a summer season of horse racing, the Festival of speed and the Goodwood revival. We feel it necessary to have a car to get the most out of the area and although there are dog walks around the town we have tended to drive a few miles to access a bit more countryside....
We are served by Southern rail and Chichester has a train station nearby. There are also good bus links to both Portsmouth, Brighton and the South Downs. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We would be grateful for any green fingered gardeners who are happy to look after the garden and the house appropriately.
Gizzy will be with us on this occasion though
Otto would love some company as he does not like being left in an empty house any more.
