Please help! Sitter has cancelled last minute
Due to family illness our sitter has cancelled at the last minute so we are urgently looking for a replacement. All our cats have been rescue cats and we can't bring ourselves to put them in a cattery. Up until recently relatives have kindly taken on the cat sitting duties but unfortunately due to health problems it is unfair of us to ask them to continue to take on the responsibility. We have used Trusted Housesitters for the first time this year and found it to be a fantastic service. We are looking for someone who either lives locally and can visit at least twice a day to feed the cats and spend time with them or a house sitter so we can go on holiday knowing our two will be suitably pampered. Our house is a strictly no smoking zone so we are sorry but we cannot have smokers stay.
Our Home & Location
We live in a three bed detached house in Caerphilly. The house is near bus stops and a five minute walk to the nearest train station. Caerphilly has numerous shops, restaurants and pubs and Cardiff is a twenty minute train ride away. There are a number of cycle routes from the house and the Taff trail is close by. If you wish to bring bicycles they can be safely locked in the garage. If you enjoy walking there are many local walks but a 30 minute drive will get you to the Brecon Beacons, 40 minutes to the Black Mountains and about 40 minutes and you are at the coast. We will be happy to provide information about anything of interest so you can fully enjoy your stay.
Responsibilities & Pets
The main responsibility is feeding Clyde and Libby and spending time with them. We have a cat flap so there is no cat tray to clean. The downside of this is that Libby will occasionally bring you a live/dead furry present. Both cats love being groomed and having a lap to sit on. We also have an allotment so depending on the time of year there may be seedlings and plants in the garden that will need watering.
