House sitting in Bicester Oxfordshire
Hi we live in a four bedroomed house on a quiet close near the centre of Bicester. Bicester is a small market town. We haven't used a house sitter before as the children, since being 18 have always looked after the pets when we have gone away. Now they have all left home and we would like to make sure that the pets are well looked after whilst we go on holiday.
Our Home & Location
Our home is centrally heated and stays warm in the winter. In the summer there is access to a sunny garden, patio, decking area and BBQ.

Responsibilities & Pets
You would need to feed both cats twice a day. You would also need to feed the dogs twice a day and take them for two walks a day. We usually take them for a short walk in the morning and a longer one in the evening but this weather dependent . Pepper loves to play. she will chase a ball at every opportunity. Alfie is more sedate but very good tempered .
