Sociable, loving and talkative cat needs company while parents are on holiday
Hi, I am a young professional in full-time employment. I am going on 12-day holiday to Bulgaria over Christmas and New Year's and would like my fluffy bundle of joy, Ginger, to have some company at home - essential for him as he is extremely sociable! He is 3 years old and very well behaved, very talkative and very cute.
Our Home & Location
My home is in Hulme, 5-minute walk from Asda superstore. It's very convenient to get to using public transport (bus lines 85 & 86), by car (close to Princess Rd and Chorlton Rd), or by foot (25-minute walk to Oxford Rd Station).
I do have a designated parking space, so if you need to use it, please let me know and I will leave my car at work to free up the space. There is also on street parking available overnight for free....
My home is a rented 2-bedroom apartment situated on the 3rd floor and has a balcony. There is also a TV with Free View, Nextflix and Vodafone wifi, access to which I can provide if you would like to use them. There is also a record player if you fancy discovering some of my music collection, or if you'd like to bring and listen to your own records.
There is gas boiler, central heating and hot water always available. There is also a dishwasher. The fridge is small but I will empty as much as possible for you to use. Feel free to use all spices, herbs and anything you need from the kitchen cupboards/ pantry. There will also be an iron and a hairdryer available. If you have questions about anything else, please contact me and I will be happy to answer. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Please bare in mind that Ginger is an indoor cat, and because I live on the 3rd floor, I avoid leaving the windows wide open. However, I leave him to chill out and watch cat TV on the balcony every day.
You will need to feed Ginger 3 times a day. I usually give him a mixture of frozen raw food and 1/2 tin of wet food for breakfast and dinner, and about 15-20g of dry food for lunch. All food will be provided and stored in the kitchen. Ginger is usually flexible on meal timings but if you plan to be out for long, it's best to leave extra meals in the bowls. Water in the water fountain needs to be changed once every 4-5 days....
His litter box is in the spare bedroom so that door should always be open. I will change his litter before I leave, so it shouldn't need to be changed before I return. However, if it does, new litter bag will be available in the spare bedroom.
He has various toys throughout the apartment, but his current favourite is the round yellow spinning toy, so please turn this on when he feels playful. You can also spend some quality time together with the laser which Ginger finds very challenging and you will find entertaining.
His favourite blankets (beige/brown one and blue one) will be on the sofa; he likes it when the blanket is laid out on the sofa for him to lie down and relax next to you.
Ginger is vaccinated and insured. Should any medical urgencies arise, contact details for his vet practice will be provided, and you will be fully reimbursed for any costs. + More info
