Oli needs a companion whilst we’re on holiday
Oli is nearly thirteen years old and suffers from separation anxiety. In addition to this he’s losing his sight and we think he’s losing his hearing, but that could be he’s developed selective hearing. He has also lost two discs in his back so whist he loves to walk he can’t manage long walks anymore; the forest and the beach are his favourite places and both are easily accessible from our home. On our last holiday we had my brother pet sit for us and on our return oli was really relaxed. Hence we’ve decided to find a more permanent solution to cover our holidays.
Our Home & Location
We live in a modern ground floor two bedroom maisonette in Hythe Southampton (second bedroom has been made into a dining room) with its own private garden furnished for outdoor dining. It’s within walking distance of the village, and in driving distance of two beaches (one is a sailing beach) and the New Forest National Park. Accommodation offered as follows; large bedroom with king size bed and patio doors leading to south facing garden, fully fitted kitchen with gas hob, eye level electric double oven. Bathroom with shower cubicle with drench shower and bath tub too, dining room with seating for six, sitting room with smart TV inc Apple TV, Netflix and blue tooth speaker. Garden has corner sofa with dining table to the decked area at the top of the garden and the two arm chairs, and sun bed with small table to the lower section of the garden (patio will be completed by September and will be dark grey Brazilian Slate
Responsibilities & Pets
We would require someone to feed, walk and love oli, he has his own bed, but also has a blanket on the sofa, but every now and then he will need assistance to get onto it. The house will be thoroughly cleaned before we leave and we would expect it to be throughly cleaned before our return. In the summer it would be useful if the garden pots and hanging basket could be watered; we have a lightweight hose and outside tap so it would not be an onerous task.
