Dartmoor National Park is about 20 minutes by car. Polperro Cornwall about 40 minutes by car.

Responsibilities & Pets
Minnie is healthy but does suffer a little arthritis in her back legs.
At her last vet visit she weighed 4 kgs, but ranges from 3.5 - 4....
She has never learned to use a cat flap (this is now kept locked to prevent a male making use of it).
Minnie prefers to have some one open the door for her and has a number of favourite spots in the back garden. She also sits on a black parcel bin next to the front steps.
She is quite happy to be indoors and occasionally likes to play.
I usually ensure she is inside when I go out and always at night.
She occasionally sleeps on the bed but has a preferred place in the spare room and a little house which is her retreat.
Minnie has all her teeth and loves dentabites and uncooked liver (which I restrict to once a fortnight). + More info
