Needs and animals

Pet-sitting | Animals with specific needs | 3 Cats

We have 3 cats: One 13 year old domestic longhair and 2 younger Maine Coons (4 and 2 years old). The cats require 2 meals of wet or raw food each day, roughly 12 hours apart and need to be separated or supervised while eating. The oldest cat has IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) and is on a restricted diet. He also requires a topical medication every 2-3 days and accepts his meds easily. The cats need 1 or 2 daily play sessions of 15-20 minutes, in which mostly the youngest plays while the others watch. The Maine Coons enjoy hanging out with you a bit more than your average cat but are fairly low maintenance. When the weather is good, the cats enjoy going outside in their enclosed catio. The litter boxes should be scooped at least 2x a day and with the long haired cats, a bit of a brushing every few days would be greatly appreciated.

Despite being in the middle of the city, our apartment is calm and cozy. The kitchen has plenty of supplies and appliances for cooking and there are several markets and supermarkets within walking distance. There's a large couch and TV to relax with, a balcony with electric grill, washer and dryer, and an office with 2 desks to work in if needed. The guest bedroom has two single beds, the master is a euro king. The apartment is a penthouse/duplex with 2 bedrooms, the office and 2 bathrooms upstairs and everything else downstairs. Bilbao is great to get around on foot or with public transit- walk around Casco Viejo from the apartment or get on the metro to explore Bilbao or the surrounding area. Basque Country is a city of culinary delight with amazing restaurants all over.

Bilbao is home to the Guggenheim museum, some fascinating architecture and above all amazing food. Casual pintxos and Michelin star restaurants abound. The seafood is top quality and super fresh. The ocean and some great beaches are easily accessible by metro (30-50 minutes from Casco Viejo) and there are plenty of hiking options in the nearby mountains or hills. Its possible to day trip to Guernika, San Sebastian or Santander via train or bus.

Lauren and Charles welcomed me very well in their apartment, they are very gentle and the communication was perfect. Their cats are lovely, calm and well behaved. Their apartment is very clean, tidy and very confortable. I really recommend the stay there!

Villasanta, Italy - January 2024

Lauren and Charles had been very kind, their house is very beautiful, super organized and clean. The house is also in a central position, so it is easy to reach everything you need. They made sure we had everything we could possibly need and they were very friendly. The kitties are very cute, easy to take care and so cuddly and playful. It was a real pleasure taking care of them. I would recommend them to anyone.
