Pet sitter needed for our crazy cat!
We are a couple in our 50s, looking for a house sitter for when we go on holidays, which we do several times a year. We have a cat called Picola (Italian for small, which she is) who is now 14, nearly 15. She is in very good health and is a real people--cat although she'll as soon nip you then cuddle you just to keep you on your toes. We have a lovely cottage (though with 5 beds so not really a cottage any more) in a village in North Yorkshire with a really great gastro pub and local shop / post office. Perfect for Dales and Moors!
Our Home & Location
We have bi-fold doors from an orangery to a large patio and garden which gets lots of sun (it does shine up here, honest!). We have just installed a hot tub out there which is heaven! There is a lovely airy double bedroom (dble aspect) with en-suite for you. We have wifi which isn't bad at all (now superfast!) and we live right on the village green. staggering distance from the best pub in Yorkshire where they serve fabulous food and beer / wine and welcome you with warmth and a roaring fire. Carol at the post office / shop is wonderful and there is a bus to Northallerton and Richmond every day x 2. If you love the Dales, we are a hop,skip and jump away and turn round the other way and you have Whitby and the Moors equally close. We hope you love it as much as we do! (why are we going away??!)
Responsibilities & Pets
We are looking for someone to care for the cat and put up with / love her crazy ways. She loves people and will cuddle but has a evil streak so will need someone who 'gets' cats! If you could keep our home tidy, water plants, check the levels in the hot tub (and feel free to use it!) and perhaps mow the lawn if it's summer, that would be really kind!
