Feathers and fur (two hens and two rabbits) require temporary parent(s) to look after them in their cosy home in Cotswolds, Gloucestershire
Hello! We are Chris and Zahida. We are in our 50s and are looking for a pet sitter(s) to take care of our beloved pets while we go on holiday. We have two rabbits who are very attached to the home and can't be boarded. We also have two elderly hens who are now in a well earned retirement! We both work full time with careers in IT and Education. We love to travel but this has been a bit difficult leaving our pets behind. We are now looking forward to the security of going on holiday knowing that our pets and home will be left in safe and secure hands.
Our Home & Location
We live in a quiet area in a semi rural part of Gloucestershire near to the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal, the River Severn and the glorious South Gloucestershire countryside! We are in easy reach of Bristol, Cardiff, Monmouth, the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean as well as the Cotswolds. We have great restaurants, cafes and pubs nearby within walking distance or a car ride away. We would be happy to recommend our favourite haunts that do great food. There is a regular bus service into the city, one every 20 mins, so if you don't have a car then there is good public transport. We hope you will enjoy our home and our location as much as we do. During winter our lounge has a real fire and so it is lovely and cosy and and we have a wellness jacuzzi jet spray bath tub for the ultimate soak and relaxation.
Responsibilities & Pets
The bunnies (Pancakes and Cilla) sleep indoors in the conservatory and the hens have their coop in the garden. Both sets of pets can be left during the day as they are all free range during the day. Fortunately we have a very safe garden. The pets are let out on the mornings and given breakfast. The hens are superb at going to bed at night themselves and just need their coop door secured. The bunnies like to come indoor and watch a bit of TV with us in the evenings before bed time! Other responsibilities will include emptying litter trays and cleaning the hutch and replenishing their food and making sure that the coop is clean and dry with sufficient bedding.
