Pet sitting & House sitting job in South West
South West - Gloucestershire
Sitting required for holiday cover.. TWO weeks available, but the site only lets me put in one at a time, June is the revised date, but we also need a sitter for 10 September for 8 days (one week plus arriving the day before).
Two Bengal cats. Both can be naughty but one tends to go out a lot of the day. Must be in at night, no cat flap so need letting in and out. The youngest cat (8 months) is indoor only so mustn't get out. NOTE! No known way to stop them if they decide you need to get up at 5am, but generally they are good as gold - just sometimes get the occasional moody streak. Sorry NO PETS - the cats rule the roost and wouldn't tolerate any.
We have a regular dog walker living only 3 doors away with qualified animal first aid etc. She could cover frequent cat visits every day, but one cat is only 8 months old and has never been left longer than a supermarket run due to covid, so I wouldn't want them alone at night and/or all day.
Own double and/or single room, with your own jacuzzi bath upstairs (our master and bathroom is downstairs) so easy to stay overnight both sides of our holiday dates if you wish. Use of our shower in the downstairs master en suite if required if you'd rather shower than bath. The house has a small garden, koi pond and a large terrace (covered) off the farmhouse kitchen lovely for outdoor dining if it's warm enough to sit outside - and covered if you need to smoke.
Beautiful location in Forest of Dean, but not isolated, in a village. Pubs x 2 andChinese takeaway within a few hundred yards. AMAZING walks locally. Within walking distance of mountain bike hire shop, and lovely cycle tracks in the Forest.
If distance permits it would be lovely to meet you beforehand, if not a zoom or FaceTime works. We can put you up overnight if you can (and would like to) visit before the housesit. Also happy for you to extend and stay a few days beforehand/after if it suits your travel arrangements - guest accommodation is upstairs so there would be no awkwardness with us all being in the house at once.
