I am 66 and retired and my wife is 56 and retired through ill health. We have 2 beautiful cats which we love dearly and which have our company 24/7 as we don't get out very much generally. Holidays are important to us. We are going away from 26th February to 14th March 2019 and want live-in cover for our home and the cats.
Our Home & Location
We live in a village which is within 5 miles each of Newark and Lincoln, both of which have cinemas, theatres, museums, castles, restaurants, bars and a full range of shopping both in the towns and retail parks outside. Lincoln also has a beautiful Cathedral. There are numerous attractions to visit in Lincolnshire, especially in the Wolds. We have WiFi and a 50" TV with Sky as well as Netflix and Amazon Prime. The guest bedroom has Freeview TV and a digital radio. It also has a beautiful double french bed. Our sofa is very comfortable with reclining seats and our house is extremely clean and warm, being a new build. Our neighbours are lovely and everyone in the village is very friendly. It has a supermarket, 2 takeaways, a hairdressers, cafe and vets surgery and there is a social evening with licensed bar every Friday night. There is a bus service but a car is really essential.
Responsibilities & Pets
We require the pet sitter to live in. Their responsibilities are to feed the cats twice a day and be company for them. This is most important to us. The cats are very gentle and not particularly demanding. They don't go out a lot as they are quite old now and can be left in the daytime but we would want them to have company for at least part of the day, especially the evening. There is a cat flap in the back door so they come and go as they please. The sitter would be required to take them to the vets if any concerns arise and we will of course reimburse any vets fees incurred.
