Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
Happy House and Cat sitters
We are Finna and Roger and are what we call 'nearly retired'
fit and healthy, non smokers.
We are experienced house sitters, having joined a Home Exchange network many years ago and have done over 20 exchanges, so we understand what it means to open your home to other people.
Although we are without a cat now, we have owned and looked after cats (and other small animals) during many of the house sits an thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We live in UK and run a small B&B, as and when it suits us, so we can fit in plenty of travel and house sits when it takes our fancy. We have a daughter living in Wellington NZ and visit regularly...so will always have one foot in New Zealand :)))
