Loving cat sitter
I live with my son who is at university and our cat, Poppy. We have just moved from Brighton to Saltdean which is very quiet and very easy to park!
I go away for odd nights for work and for short breaks. Poppy was re-homed by us 5 years ago. She was irritated by puppies in her previous family and we love her dearly. She loves company, doesn't like noise and we absolutely hate to leave her alone, particularly overnight. If I have to do a long hospital day at work she is quite distraught when I get home. Our previous cat sitter has moved away. Non smokers only for house sitting. We prefer single people not couples mainly females.
Our Home & Location
I have just moved to Saltdean. It is very easy to park at the front of the house or the back as there are no parking restrictions. It is very quiet with wonderful views out of the back to the South Downs and the sea. You access the Downs from the top of our road. The house is small - 3 bedrooms, but one room is used as a study. The lounge is newly decorated and has a a large terrace on the back where you can sit out and eat. The kitchen is on the list to be completely renovated, everything works but it is very old fashioned and basic at the moment. The bathroom is completely renovated with large bath and two types of shower. We are on the west side of Saltdean so it is easy to walk to Rottingdean village where there are great pubs (The Plough, The Blackhorse) for example, Saltdean beach and the Lido. There are very local food shops including a VIP pizza restaurant. We are on the regular 27 bus route in to Brighton and that is a four minute walk away. Brighton has lots of clubs, bars and restaurants and brilliant shopping. There is an under-cliff walk from Saltdean to Brighton Marina which is beautiful and takes about an hour to walk. Brighton is very lively and fun and trendy.
Responsibilities & Pets
Poppy does not do well with families or children. She definitely does not like noise. We prefer single people to stay and give her lots of attention, not making too much noise, being calm around her, feeding her, changing her water, cuddling and stroking her. Changing her litter tray which she has just started to use since the move! In the summer she has a lock system which allows her to go out of the lounge window but in the winter she will scratch on the front door or balcony door for you to let her out. Please let her out as much as she wants. It is often good for sitters to pick up keys first particularly as we have a cat lock and not a cat flap and it is better if this is shown. No smokers to apply please.
