About this assignment

I am looking for someone kind, trustworthy and who has a genuine love of cats. Definitely non smokers/vapers and you must already be in the United Kingdom, as air travel is much too unreliable.
Matilda is a 17yr old lapcat, very sociable and loving, Basil (15) is less sociable, keeps himself to himself, and Jazz is the youngest, he is the baby at 9.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

My house sitter's MOST important job will be to take care of my cats. Also to ensure my home is secure, look after my plants and generally just keep an eye on things. The boys let themselves into the house via the cat flap, Matilda won’t go outside when it is cold so we have a litter tray under the stairs. They all like company, hence the need for someone to be here rather than just a cat feeder.

What are the good features of the property and location

My home is in the centre of Cambridge - Walking distance to everything that Cambridge has to offer......museums, restaurants, theatres and shopping. I only have a small courtyard so no need to worry about too much gardening but I do have a number of pots that require watering.
The house has a large flat screen TV, fibre broadband and all the normal home comforts (dishwasher, washing machine) etc. It isn't a palace, just a normal sometimes untidy home.

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

I have a lodger
I have very stringent checking procedures before I accept someone into my home, so you need have no worries about your own security.
Unfortunately, my home is unsuitable for children, apologies for any inconvenience
Please also check your dates - this site uses American date format!
