Would you like a few days in Stonehaven - Our 2 cats Arya and Macbeth (brother and sister 2 years old ) and our cockapoo puppy Pippin (6 months - born August 2016) would like to be looked after in their own home
We are Stuart and Isabel, who are looking for sitters for our cats, Ayra and Macbeth who are sister and brother born in February 2014. Macbeth lost an eye early 2015 but that hasn't stopped him climbing trees and hunting. Our newest addition Pippin is a chocolate cockapoo puppy born in August 2016. He is house trained and a well behaved pup! We are looking for a couple or a single person to look after them on various dates in 2017 along with our home and fish in the pond.
Our Home & Location
Our property is a very comfortable and modern detached house about a mile from the centre of Stonehaven and about 12 miles South of Aberdeen. Stonehaven is a lovely seaside town with a beach, harbour, pubs and shops. The famous Dunnottar Castle is just South of Stonehaven and there are plenty of beautiful walks around the area and the Lecht ski Centre is 56 miles (1 1/2 hours drive) from our home.
Responsibilities & Pets
The house sitter will be required to feed the cats twice a day. Both cats go outside although they come in at night and sleep close by you although not with you (although Arya might snuggle up for an hour in the middle of the night Macbeth wont)! They don't like being picked up but will chat to you if you speak to them and like to be close to you during the day. They get fed twice a day, morning and evening.
Our new addition Pippin is a lovely cockapoo puppy. He has started his training and is good at coming when called especially when you have treats for him and certainly knows his name. He sleeps in his crate at night from about 10 until 7 (when we get up). As he is still a puppy he spends his day with me and goes where ever I go! He has a walk in the morning and afternoon and likes playing in the garden with you. He is currently on 2 meals a day, morning and evening, and is raw fed. I work from home and both cats and the puppy are usually close by during the day. You would also be required to look after the house and feed the fish every couple of days. Although they don't need feeding over winter. Nothing too onerous at all for a pet lover!
