We need a 6 month house sitter for a cat. The start and finish dates can be juggled to fit you too - so although we would like to go in about April we can move that to May or even forward to March.
Humphrey was a feral kitten who we found dying in our garden and we just had to save him. He is plain black, short haired cat with some quirks.
He cannot be shut in anywhere which meant that we had to put a cat door in. He doesn't need a kitty litter tray so no cleaning up there. He wanders in and out all day and particularly loves curling up in the sun with you close by. He absolutely adores being brushed every day and in fact lies on his back and tells you, loudly, that its time for a brush. He is the worlds messiest eater ever and insists that he bring his food out of the bowl onto the floor to eat so a little cleaning is needed daily. He sleeps on the bed and is the worst bed hog but anyone who loves cats will know this is one of the delights of cats. Humphrey is also able to be left for one night at a time if you want to spend a night somewhere else. Obviously enough food would need to be left out for him but being a cat he is fairly self sufficient too.
The house is a small but neat, tidy two bedroom house with off street parking for one vehicle and a low maintenance garden. We have a heat pump for the cold months too.
Taupo is one of NZ's premier tourist attractions and the entertainment is huge. Bungy jumping, skydiving, Lake tours, Craters of the Moon, Spa park, Huka Falls and lots of other attractions. Plus just one hour up the road is Rotorua with all its attractions too. There is dozens and dozens of good walks to do and a thriving biking community with some amazing tracks around the lake.
