Looking for a loving carer for our little pussy cat
My husband David and I are semi-retired. We help our son manage tenanted properties and we have a holiday cottage in Derbyshire near the Peak District which we own and manage. We like to take long weekend breaks and visit our family in Spain as often as we can, as well as other holidays. We both love wildlife, nature, all animals and the environment. Before retiring I was an Environmental Manager for a large construction company and loved my job protecting the environment. We love our little cat Archie who is our little fur baby.
Our Home & Location
Our home is a modern 4-bedroom house with one en-suite bedroom and 1 bathroom. There is a lounge, dining room and kitchen, utility room, and home office on the ground floor. Outside is a large garden, greenhouse and mainly lawned area. We are in a small village which used to be a mining village,but not any longer, although it is still proud of it's mining heritage. Own transport advisable as the bus service is infrequent, but lots of lovely walks when the weather is fine. Small local supermarket for groceries etc. within short walking distance.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our cat Archie needs feeding , love and caring, we always call him in at night and never let him stay out all night. He is used to coming in although you may need to shout him and rattle his treat packet to get him in! He loves his treats. We let him sleep on the bed with us if he likes, and he often lays on our knee when we are watching TV, although he has his own stool and cushion which he also likes to sleep on. He always has dry biscuits in a dish and we generally feed him on demand although he does not overeat and he is not overweight, he seems to know himself how to regulate his food intake.
