House sitting for 5 cats and some Tropical Fish
We have had cats all of our married life and at present have 5 who we like to keep at home when we go on holiday. We also have a Tropical Fish Aquarium which needs very little attention,
My husband is a Landscape Gardener and I am a Dispenser in a GP Surgery. We love our pets, they are pour family after all, and want them to be happy and healthy at home. We have been lucky so far in that our kids have been available to help but now that they are grown up they have commitments of their own....
We don't go on holiday very often through the year but obviously when we do the cats are a priority to get cover for, more so than getting flights and accommodation booked. + More info
Our Home & Location
We live in a Semi-Detached house which is in a fairly quiet road in Tadley. We have three bedrooms and therefore no problem accommodating house sitter. Our drive can hold 3 cars comfortably and we believe that drivers would find it more suitable to use their own vehicle as public transport is not very frequent.
Tadley is quite a small place but does have a swimming pool and two gyms with plenty of options for keep fit classes and the like. There are some very good areas to walk around close by as well, Pamber Forest, the Wasing Estate and so on....
My vets are less than 1/4 of a mile away, you can see them from our front door, and they are very friendly and helpful. We always advise them when we go away and they are happy to Invoice us on our return should our pets need any treatment. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We would like some one to mostly just feed our cats , twice a day usually, and the Fish once a day. The cats have a cat flap so there is no litter tray to deal with. There may be some plant watering to do but very little. Otherwise it's just asking someone to be here, sit back, relax and use our facilities. The freezer has plenty of food and we are happy to take details of any other supplies that may be needed.
