Cat Slave Required for approx. 14 weeks May to September 2019; a large number of cats some owned and some just cared for. If you would like to spend your summer taking care of my furry family in exchange for living rent free (internet payable if required and contribution to electric required) in the Puente don Manuel (north of Velez Malaga) area with sole use of the entire house except my room, (comfortable rather than posh, a home not a holiday house, electric fans not air con, a paddling pool you can sit in rather than a swimming pool, good local facilities, use of vehicle by negotiation, and all the cats you can trip over), then I would like to hear from you. More information and to open discussions please email telling me why you want to do this and what you have to offer; conscientious care of the cats is paramount as is respecting my home and possessions. The right candidate must pass the cat test, not just apply! Janet.
