Pet sitter for elderly dog and a grumpy cat with a bit of weeding thrown in!
We are a couple looking for a house, garden and pet sitter to look after our lovely dog and very grumpy cat (although all our sitters have fallen in love with him!) on the edge of the New Forest. We live in Redlynch in a lovely house which has a large self contained one bedroom annexe for our sitter. We are just a stone's throw from the New Forest, and the lovely town of Salisbury. We are also close by Winchester and the south coast.
Our Home & Location
The house is a detached split level property in a village which has a couple of pubs, a lovely local shop, an Indian restaurant and a couple of takeaways! The nearby town of Downton has a small supermarket, butchers, vets, doctors and dentist. There are lovely walks for the dog from the house although we tend to go to the forest each day.
Responsibilities & Pets
We would like someone to care for our lovely 15 year old Patterdale, Rodney and our cat Louis. Rodney is very well behaved and despite his age can still walk up to half an hour although this is really dependent on how he is feeling although with the weather changing he will probably be happy just hanging around the house and garden. We also have a grumpy 14 year old cat Louis whose mood changes with the weather, despite this our sitters love him! We don't understand it... We have an average sized tiered garden which is quite low maintenance but will require some tlc and we'd like the sitter to pull the weeds for us. There is no lawn, but we have a doggy toilet area.
