I need someone reliable and used to cats from April 13 to May 8, 2019, and would like you to arrive a day or two early. You're welcome to stay longer, if it's more convenient. I'm an experienced couchsurfer and used to hosting guests.
I live in a modern 3 bedroom apartment. Fast wifi, great area for walking and cycling, 20 minutes by bus (stop right in front of the house running at least once an hour until midnight) or by bicycle to the city center of Winterthur which is a great city if you love museums, parks and cafés. Also it's only 20 minutes from Zurich. Most places in Switzerland can be visited on a day return.
The area is great for outdoors sports, especially cycling and hiking and I can lend you a bike. For winter I can lend you snowshoes.
You'll have your own guestroom with a desk.
You would need to look after three very easy, lovely cats and water the plants once in a while, but otherwise they're no responsibilities. The cats are easy, like your company, but are also used to spending a day by themselves.
There's a farm shop within walking distance and shops in the city.
The place is strictly non-smoking as both I have asthma.
All the best
