About this assignment

We are looking for someone who could look after our apartment and beautiful siamese cat, Simba, from 19 Dec 2019 to 6 Jan 2020

(We have now found someone for the dates: 31 Aug 2019 to 14 Sep 2019. )

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

We have a beautiful 9 year siamese cat who is easy to look after.  He'll need some cuddles from a cat-lover, but doesn't like to be picked up. 
Simba needs to be fed twice daily and his litter tray cleaned twice daily too. Now and then he'll ask to be let out and in, but for the most part, he's happy to be indoors. He rarely spends more than about 5-30 minutes outside.
He has two blankets, which need to be washed in the washing machine every 2 weeks, alternating them.
Other than that, he just needs a warm body to lie next to, a few strokes, and some company.
And of course the house-sitter will also need to look after the apartment in our absence, but you'll get lots of help and support from our lovely neighbours above and below. We do sometimes have workmen who need to do some work while we're away, but they are normally small jobs which shouldn't be too disruptive.

What are the good features of the property and location

Our beautifully decorated apartment in Bowdon, Altrincham is 10 miles from Manchester (and on the tram line - just over 20 minutes into the City Centre).  It is a ground level apartment with its own entrance in a small block of 4 apartments, and has access to an outside patio area for nicer days.
Altrincham town is a 10 minute walk down the hill, and is an amazing town full of buzz, market house, coffee shops, restaurants, shops and more.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

Pet and plant care for indoor plants and on the patio
We have neighbours downstairs, and wooden floors which can be noisy for them. This means we can't have house-sitters with young children.

Adorable cat!!

It was very nice to be in Manchester suburb.It is a very nice area, quiet but still close to the tram to the city center.Tim and Liezl gave me all the information needed about the house(even a written manual very detailed) and Simba, the adorable and talkative cat. He was shy in the beginning but little by little he relaxed and became playful and affectionate.I would recommend them without hesitation.
