4 Well behaved cats
We have just moved to Bideford at the beginning of August this year. Including myself and partner, Pete, we have 4 cats, 2 old boys and 2 young girls (sisters). Currently we are having a new kitchen fitted and hopefully our garden landscaped. We like to go away twice a year for holidays abroad around 10 or 14 days, but also sometimes visiting my daughter and grandchildren in Bristol. Because of our cats we are unable to stay over. If we had a sitter for a couple of days to look after them and the house we would be able to stay for a couple of days.
Our Home & Location
Having recently moved from Somerset in August we are still finding our way around the area. However, we are only a few miles from the north coast and areas of interest, Westward Ho, Bude, Clovelly to name a few with Barnstaple being the nearest large town. There is a regular bus service to these areas. The shops and town centre is around 10-15 min walk away. But as we are in an elevated position the walk back is up a steep road. We are also near to The Tarka Trail for those interested in cycling or walking! The property is situated on a small quiet no through road with a driveway for 2 or more cars, garage and a sunny rear garden . The house has 4 bedrooms one is used as an office with a treadmill in it. A recently fitted kitchen open plan to the dining area and large sunny lounge which leads into a large sunny conservatory overlooking Bideford.
Responsibilities & Pets
Medication needs to be given daily to Ant, one of our elderly male cats. Ant is a big softy when he gets to know you, always purring loudly. He takes his pills happily by mouth (not in his food) but does expect some tit bit afterwards (for being good) either a bit of chicken or cheese! The garden is small and easily kept tidy but we will be planning to landscape the rest of the garden giving more seating areas to enjoy the views from. We don't expect any hard work to be done on the garden, just cutting the lawn when needed and maybe a bit of weeding, our main priority is for someone to care for our cats and home.
