Housesitter for Corky&Krum
We are Bulgarian couple over 45 and we live in England over 10 years now. We used to live in London for a few years, but 6 years ago we decided to move away from the beautiful, but overcrowded and full of stress capital city to the full of history and much more relaxed York. We both are working - my husband is groundworker and all these years in the UK I worked as a cleaner in private and business properties in London and in York until 2017 when I become a part of the big family of employees in very prestigious private college. I can describe us as a very bubbly and fun loving people. We love being outdoors, walking and visiting new places. We have been to Spain, Morocco, Canaries and Greece, but we both in love with Rhodes island in Greece. My husband loves football and fishing. My passion is cooking, baking and crafts - I like to create things with my hands....
We need a housesitter for our "little babies" because we going home to Bulgaria at least two times a year and usually our son takes care of them, but he flew out of the nest to live with his girlfriend in different town. This time we all going home and it`s really hard for us. We don`t wont to take Corky to the kennel - he never been to a one and he is always sad when we are absent from home for a long time and we do not want to add on top the extra of an unfamiliar place with unknown dogs and people.
That`s why we prefer to have a pre-sitting date if it`s possible with the person who will look after our animals who are the part of our family. + More info
Our Home & Location
We live in a bungalow with driveway and small garden in a very quiet little street just off the road with a few bus stops or it`s 20 minutes walk to the town. In our area, we have everything -shops, post offices, pharmacy ext. literally on our door step - 10 minutes walk
York, it`s a city full of places to visit and tones of history, place where everyone can find something for himself.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our potential housesitter will need to feed the dog and the bird (with the food provided by us) and to give them fresh water every day. Corky is going for a walk on a lead- sometimes he is not very happy and becomes nervous with some dogs around him - especially pugs. Two walks a day for 40 - 50 minutes are perfect for him if it`s more than that he gets a muscle strain. He loves to be cuddled, to be next to us on the sofa and to jump on our bed- just to play a bit with us and then he is going in his own bed which is next to ours. It`s very important for us the housesitter to show and give Corky a lot of hugs and love and not to leave him alone during the night.
To clean birds cage at least ones a week. We don`t cover Krum`s cage during the night - when the light is off he is sleeping without any problem....
To keep the house clean and tidy and to show respect to all our belongings. Always to lock the doors on the night and when is going out. No smoking in the house - we are smokers, but we don`t smoke in the house. + More info
