About this assignment

We are looking for a responsible and caring housesitter. Experience with rabbits is not required, but it is important that you are happy to make sure you understand the care that is required (of course we will explain and happily answer any questions). Please respect our house. We are vegan, so we would prefer vegan or vegetarian house sitters if possible.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

We have two young rabbits, Brussel and Sprout, who would love to get to know you, they have free run of the living room while someone is at home. We also have rescue foster rabbits on and off, when we have one, they are in a pen in the bedroom. We can let you know more details relevant to your sit dates via message. You would need to take care of the following: Feeding rabbits in morning and evening, supervising Brussel and Sprout while they are out of their cage (whenever you are home - at least 2 hours in the evening, with a minimum of 4 hours each day). Changing their water, brushing them, updating us on their well-being and cleaning of the cage. For longer stays, we can have someone come in twice a week to clean cage thoroughly and change litter boxes. We would also appreciate it if you could water the plants. Please mention 'Brussel and Sprout's favourite treat is banana' in your message, to show that you have read the listing :)

What are the good features of the property and location

We have a warm and cosy one bedroom apartment near the city centre of Leuven. It consists of a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, toilet, and open-plan kitchen-living room with the option of a sofa bed to accommodate a third or fourth guest. Leuven is a beautiful student town only 20 minutes by train from Brussels, with easy access to the whole of Belgium, as well as France, Germany and the Netherlands by train. A wonderful base for day trips to explore Europe, our flat is only 5 minutes walk from the station into the centre of town. We have wifi available (please use it respectfully), and the location is a stones throw away from the beautiful town hall of Leuven, as well as the university library, cathedral and bustling Grote and Oude Markt.

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

We would love to offer our home to those with a willingness to provide the correct care to the rabbits, and update us daily on how they are doing. Non-smokers please. Although problems are unlikely, you must be willing to take them to the vet in a timely manner, should any issues arise.
