Hi , I'm looking for someone to stay at my house in Northampton UK and take care of my indoor cats  while I go on holiday with my son for 2 weeks. Single person or couple , must be non smokers. 

Our cats are Saffy  11 years  old and Cracker 8 years old , both rescue cats ,  Ive only had Saffy  since May 2015 and Cracker since Feb 2016 and I would like you to mostly keep them indoors.  Saffy has hyperthyroidism and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy , she is well currently but does need medication every 12 hours which I crush and put into her food .  She needs an eye keeping on her in case of relapsing and needing to see the vet quickly, symptom of concern would most likely be difficulty with her breathing. Cracker has IBS so has a strict diet. Feeding , medicating , covered  litter boxes kept clean and they might like someone to play with them occasionally, though they do sleep a lot. Saffy  is quite a stand offish lady and very private , Cracker Is more affectionate and loves belly rubs.  Both cats like a quiet household as can be a bit jumpy like most cats I guess. 

I have a 2 bed house with small patio garden on the outskirts of Northampton, in a quiet cul-de-sac. It has good bus links into the town centre , also right near the M1. (no gardening required) Dates are 6-21 August, some slight flexibility possible. Car is essential, in case either cat  needs taking to the vet , There is a private drive.

my house is also my childminding business so lounge is set up for childcare which I will leave in place , I can get a dining table and chairs if you require them 

Within walking distance are various parks and a swimming pool/leisure centre, Tesco Express , Tesco Extra , doctors , dentist , chip shop , pub/restaurant. Bus stops at end of road into town centre every 20 minutes

Within 10 minutes drive are restaurants, Indoor Climbing Centre , Cinema , Bowling, Theatres. Country parks in the area within a minutes drive include Irchester , Stanwick Lakes , Sywell, Brixworth, Fermyn woods, Salcey Forest (treetop walk and ropes course) If stately homes and gardens are your thing there are lots in the area including Althorp house (Princess Dianas home and resting place) , Canons Ashby , Stowe Gardens , Boughton House , Broughton Castle , Kelmarsh Hall , Holdenby house gardens and falconry centre, Rockingham Castle

Less than 30 minutes to Milton Keynes with its Snowdome , Willen Lakes , MKcentre shopping

 Less than 1 hour from Birmingham , Coventry , Leicester and Peterborough. Northampton isn't glamorous but it is in a beautiful part of the country with plenty to do.

Message me if you are interested . I would expect you to treat my house and cats as you would your own and feel at home , thats all I ask, Sally and Emilio 10
