House sitting again

We enjoy house sitting it gives us a chance to be “pet parents” for a while. We love animals but our gypsy lifestyle prevents us having our own pets. There is a sense of discovery when you stay in a private home for a week or two. You get to explore the district taking the dog for walks, looking at the gardens and style of houses and of course shopping in different localities finding coffee shops and op shops to browse through…

Thunder is an adorable milk-chocolate coloured, curly coated “cavoodle”.He is well behaved and like all dogs, understands the word “walkies” and rushes downstairs to stand in front of the door waiting to have his harness put on as soon as he hears the magic word. This is a hilly area so it gives us a good work out each day.

J’dore, the Burmese cat

The other member of our new family is J’dore, a Burmese cat. She loves her food and when she hears the pantry door she is right at your feet, winding herself around your legs. She will steal the dogs food and has to be shut in the pantry at feeding time to give Thunder time to eat his meal. Our instructions are to make sure she has strictly measured portions and definitely no extras. She disappears into the bedroom and sleeps in her catbed all day only appearing at meal time.
