Rural home in the Lincolnshire Fens looking for couple to sit for cats, rabbits and poultry - Sept/October 2017.
SITTER FOUND FROM ANOTHER SITE
Needing a couple to look after my 4 cats, 5 rabbits, 9 chickens, one cockerel and 2 turkeys whilst my husband and I take a holiday of a lifetime to Australia. Rural home in the middle of the Lincolnshire Fens with plenty of wildlife around. Surrounded by fields, no near neighbours, wonderful peace and quiet.
Our Home & Location
Rural bungalow set in the Lincolnshire Fens. Own large bathroom, large well stocked kitchen, Sky TV and Wifi, small airfield nearby, surrounded by fields and wildlife. All the animals are rescues and are very friendly. Each pair of rabbits have a large house and run and the poultry free range during the day but do also have a large run and huge house, and the cats are all a bunch of misfits with character. Suitable for a couple looking for peace and quiet. Close to the world famous Wash. We live in Holbeach St Johns which is a small village 5 miles south of Holbeach. No bus service so a car is essential. 1 hour to Lincoln and Cambridge, 40 minutes to Kings Lynn and Peterborough.
Responsibilities & Pets
The rabbit and chicken houses need to have the usual basic cleaning every day, which takes approximately less than an hour. The poultry also free range in the garden during the day so the poo in the garden would need to be picked up as well. There are 2 rabbit houses with a pair of lovely bunnies in each and a single rabbit house, all with large runs. Need to make sure they all have food and water and to collect the eggs each day, and of course plenty of fuss. Not suitable for someone with a bad back as there is some bending involved. We foster the stray cats for a local vet so there may be a foster cat at the time. There would be litter trays requiring emptying, feeding and lots of fuss and cuddles involved. Our own cats go out during the day but stay in at night.
