About this assignment

We are looking for someone who loves cats. Winnie is a chocolate point Siamese who is just over a year old. She is very loving
and can be quite independent . She has a very kind nature and would love to be fussed and have a comfortable lap to sit on in the evenings. Winnie loves her food and will let you know when she is hungry.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Caring for Winnie is the main responsibility . She will be fairly independent and go in and out of the cat flap and return for food and company but the cat flap is closed at night. She has breakfast, Dreamies at lunch time and supper at 6.00pm and would love a lot of tlc and enjoy sitting on people's lap and being played with. Also we are looking for people to keep an eye on the house and property and keep an eye on the garden and to water plants if necessary

What are the good features of the property and location

We live in a comfortable contemporary bungalow in the village of Heath and Reach with a spacious garden. The house is fully equipped with all mod cons to a high standard and it very cosy and comfortable. Heath and Reach is a friendly village and we have lovely neighbours who will stop and chat. We are close to the historic village of Woburn with the Abbey, safari park, antique shop and some lovely restaurants. We are about 12 miles from Milton Keynes for retail therapy and 35 minutes from London Euston on a fast train from Leighton Buzzard station which is 2 miles away. Bletchley Park is a few miles away also. Leighton Buzzard has a market on Tuesday and Saturday, there are several major supermarkets and some individual shops to peruse. There is a library. Heath and Reach has a co-op with a post office and where the daily newspapers can be purchased, and a couple of pubs all in walking distance of the bungalow. The Bedfordshire/Buckinghamshire countryside where we live has lots of lovely places to visit and walk.. Rushmere and Stockgrove parks are on our door step for enjoying nice walks.

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

Being responsible for the safety of our home and house sitters would need to be confident in looking after the cat and attend to her needs ie feeding and letting her out to do their business, also making sure they are safe and come back in the evenings
She is fairly independent and would love some
tlc and cuddles when home.

Can I bring my own pets?

No, sorry.

Testimonials

Very enjoyable house sit.

We had a great time looking after Erica & Nigel's home and pets. It was lovely to meet them and they gave us very clear information about their home, the pets and the surrounding area. Cadbury (the cat !) was no trouble at all and very easy to look after. We particularly enjoyed the garden and conservatory - very relaxing. There is plenty to do and see in the surrounding area. We would recommend this house sit.
