House and cat sitter for week end of May and 2 weeks end of July
We are a family of four with two dogs and two cats, mostly the dogs come with us, unless we go abroad, but the cats usually stay in a cattery which they do not like.
Our Home & Location
We live in a very quiet cul de sac in a residential area and the house has 3 double bedrooms and one single, 1 bath room and a downstairs toilet. Ample parking on the drive, good sized garden at the back, we have a conservatory, dining room, lounge and kitchen diner.
We are about 40 minutes from the Cotswolds, 40 minutes from Bath, just over an hour to Bristol, 90 minutes by car to London and only 1 hour on the train....
Local attractions Avebury, Barbury Castle, Steam Museum, Lydiard Park House, Bowood House, McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Mall, Malborough with the second widest high street in Britain. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
The cats are very much outdoor cats who do not usually bother with lots of fuss, very independent and only need feeding at 6pm in the evening up high when the dogs are home. They look like twins and don't answer to their names at all.
The dogs when they are at home are used to being on their own most of the day and are quite happy in the kitchen when we are not home with the radio left on low. They are also fed at 6pm on the floor. Buster loves his tennis balls and his toy teddies Snowy plays with some toys but is very much a lap dog wanting up and cuddled constantly. They only require a walk once a day at the park at the top and are happy in the garden when they need out....
Buster is a thief and enjoys nothing more than chewing on underwear or lycra clothing if he gets the chance will even open a zipped bag to get at them so beware he is cheeky! + More info
