Hi, I have an elderly cat (16 yo) & some pot plants that need looking after.
My cat has a thyroid condition & requires medicine rubbed in her ear daily which she handles very well & won't struggle to get away. Amy also needs frequent feeds but as she 'grazes', you just need to make sure there's plenty of fresh food out for her.
I live in a one bedroom, easy to maintain unit that has river views & a pool in the garden. Shops, eateries & walking paths are close by as well as ferry & bus transport to the city & train stations.
