About this assignment

I am looking for a mature, responsible person to stay in my house while I am away and look after my two cats. They will be expected to feed them as directed, clean out the litter tray regularly and on no account let them outside as they have always been 'inside cats' and never go out. They are quite sociable and enjoy company.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

I have two 'inside' cats who will need to be fed, the 'dreaded' litter tray changed frequently and some company while I am away. Mini is the younger cat and is quite timid so she may take a while to get used to you. Lola is more sociable but again, may take a couple of days to come round. Neither of them is in the least aggressive and will be delighted to enjoy your company while I am away.
I am asthmatic so do not want any smoking in the house.
The plants outside and inside will need to be watered.

What are the good features of the property and location

The map does not show anywhere near where I am! I locate it on the map and it reverts back to somewhere completely different!! I, actually, live in a town house in the small town of Cádiar in the Alpujarra region of Southern Spain in Granada Province, Post code 18440. The area is renown for spectacular scenery, hill walking and mountain climbing. The house - situated in a quiet part of the town - has three bedrooms - one en suite - a dining kitchen, a large sitting room, a bathroom, another kitchen and two sunny terraces which are lovely to sit out on. In the evening, the sunset is stunning and the lights from the villages round about are very pretty. In the sitting room, there is a log burner which runs radiators. I also have wi-fi internet and British TV.
The house is a five minute walk from the shops, bars and restaurants. There is a Carrefour Express supermarket which will deliver shopping to the house, there is another small supermarket, two butchers, a chemist, a bodega, a newsagents, a tabac, craft shops and various bars and restaurants. Free tapas is served in all the bars and the food in the restaurants is excellent. The town has a 24/7 Medical Centre with a helipad to transfer anyone with a major problem, to Granada or Motril. There is a market twice a month. Various attractive small towns and villages round about are easy to visit if you have a car. Treveles - the highest, lived in all year round town in Spain is about fifty minutes up the way and is famous for its jamon which hang from the ceiling in all the shops. It has many craft shops. A car would be an advantage but all you need can be found in Cadiar itself. There are Fiestas on throughout the year which can happen near the house or up in the main square - easy to get to. Nearest airports are Granada - an hour and a half away , Malaga is two hours and Almeria is about an hour. Cadiar is a lovely relaxing place to chill out in. The locals are easy going. A knowledge of some Spanish would be helpful but the locals do not mind if you point at things!

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

A car would be useful as it would enable the sitter to explore round about.However, it is not absolutely necessary as Cádiar has everything needed in the town.
