Sitter wanted for friendly cat in East London
I am looking for a responsible, non-smoking house sitter (or couple) to stay and look after my cat, Pumfrey, for the weekend of 17-19 August (staying Friday and Saturday night). Pumfrey is a friendly 6-year-old tabby. The house is a comfortable, three-storey, one-bedroom town house in a gated mews in Shadwell, London E1.
Our Home & Location
The house shares a small communal garden (good for sitting outside when the weather is fine, but too small for much else) with the other houses in the mews. The house is located less than 5 mins' walk from Shadwell DLR and London Overground stops. There is no space to park, though short-term visitor parking is sometimes possible.There are restaurants and pubs in Wapping and St. Katherine's Docks (10-15 mins' walk away). As well as local shops, there are a Waitrose in St. Katerine's Docks (10 mins) and a Sainsbury's in Whitechapel (15-20 mins). There is a very close public gym/pool (3-4 mins).
Responsibilities & Pets
I should like the house sitter to feed and water Pumfrey morning and evening, play with him and clean his litter tray if used (rare - he has a cat flap), as well as keeping an eye on the house. Pumfrey sometimes gets trapped in the neighbours' garden (he likes the space and the attention from their children, but can't get back...), which may require a trip round the corner with his basket.
