General description

  • Main home
Hi there! We are looking for a reliable, mature individual or couple to stay in our 2 bed spacious Victorian House in East London and care for our pets and home in October - and the occasional weekend and also over some longer breaks at Xmas and summer. (Not suitable for families or groups as we have a nervous cat who needs calm environment). We have 2 cats and 4 sweet hens. The hens need to free range for 6-10 hours every day, so you would need to be here and close by as there are foxes. This is very important! Once they are in bed, around 19:30 you can of course go out for the evening :) If you go out during the day, then they must be put inside, ideally not longer than 2-3 hours.

Lovely kitchen looking out onto garden and near transport and shops. Quiet street but very near cafes and pubs. 10 minute walk from Epping Forest great for cycling and walking.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • 2 cats
  • Farm animals
Because of Covid19 - currently only arranging with sitters who are already based in the UK.

We need care for 4 hens, and 2 cats plus watering of plants. Must be experienced with animals, calm and patient! They need their routines and the hens need special care to keep them safe from foxes! They absolutely cannot be left out of the coop unattended - so you'd need to be here for 6-10 hours a day while they roam about - this is very important. Popping out for 2-3 hours is fine, you can just put them in their pen. Evenings, once they are in bed, you can do what you like :) The cats are easy to care for - one is nervous so she needs to be left to her own thing. The other cat is friendly and curious. The neighbourhood is quiet and close to transport and shops.
