We are a retired couple who like to go away three or four times a year but don't like putting the cats in a cattery. We have a lot of wild birds visting our garden and they need quite a bit of feeding. We also have a large garden which we would like watered occasionally.
Our Home & Location
We live in a fairly isolated 3 bedroomed cottage in the country set in about 1.5 acres with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. On a quiet country road but 5 minutes from town and the nearest motorway junction and 10 minutes from the main rail line to London and the North. The area is good for walking and the garden is quiet if you like peace. Unfortunately our internet connection is slow and metered so, if this is important, please bear this in mind.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our cats are precious to us and the real driver for the search for a pet sitter. They like company, can be quite talkative and like an occasional lap to sit on. Unfortunately, Ozzy has a condition that requires 6 tablets a day - 3 in the morning and 3 early evening. Having said that, he is a sweetie and is well used to taking them - indeed he sometimes asks for them if we are late! The fish just need feeding once a day or less often when it gets cold.
