House and Cat sitting
We are Sally & Simon, live in an Old Convent with lots of ground and have 2 Norwegian Forest cats called Shadow ( boy ) and Sapphie ( girl ) . They are siblings aged 6 , they are extremely good natured, very amusing although they make hardly any noise apart from purring and love company ! However, we have always bought them in before it gets dark and let them out again early in the morning so we need house sitters who are happy to do this for us and to spoil them a lot !
Our Home & Location
We live in a beautiful Grade 1 listed Convent converted approx 40 years ago, occupied communally by 31 families each with their own property, set in 12 acres of ground with a chapel , tennis courts, outside swimming pool, orchard, woods etc. We live off the quadrangle which provides a beautiful garden space to sit and enjoy the breathtaking architecture and enjoy the peace and quiet !
Responsibilities & Pets
Cats will need to be shut in before dark and let out again early in the morning . This may need getting them in from the garden but they respond reasonably well to treats ! Dry food and water needs to be available all day long and wet food provided at breakfast and evening times. They have a litter tray which the girl uses occasionally so this will need attention daily . We would like them to have lots of company because this is what they are used to.
There are no gardening requirements , minimum housekeeping depending on your own use as for your own house , but you will need to vacuum cats hairs from sofas and carpets ! ( we have a very efficient Dyson ) We would expect normal security arrangements .
