Looking for a dog and cat sitter for dates in 2018
We are looking for someone to look after our dog Satchel, and our cats Jerry & Barty. Satchel needs walking for at least 5 miles a day (either as one long walk or 2 shorter ones) and there are some lovely countryside walked near where we live. Satchel is quite timid and takes a little time to get to know you, hence we would try to ask where possible that whoever house sits for us comes to meet her prior to their stay to start to build the relationship! Jerry is a very friendly cat, he loves lots of attention and will have a little dribble on you. Barty is our our new kitten, he's very friendly and playful, and is turning into a real little character.
Our Home & Location
We have a mid terraced cottage that was built in about 1910 so it is quite quaint, with a modern twist at the back. The house has 3 bedrooms, all of which are up some very steep stairs (hence not really appropriate for children). There are 2 bathrooms (one family, one ensuite) and a downstairs toilet. The house is a couple of miles outside of Horsham, in a village called Mannings Heath. There is a regular bus service (bank holidays excepted) to Horsham that takes 5-10 minutes. We would give you access to a small car to help you get around, assuming you have a current driving licence. There are a number of walks from the house, some of which will take you to some lovely country pubs!
Responsibilities & Pets
We would need someone who could walk Satchel as necessary, and feed the cats. The longest we would want Satchel left on her own is 6 hours. She is very used to travelling in the car, and she does enjoy some trips out and little adventures. Apart from that, there is nothing else needed.
