We are spiritual and environmental orientated people who are running a small cat-rescue center in southern Spain. They are saved from killing stations (perrera), street or handed over as unwanted pets.
We often have to cure and socialise them and of course we try to find new homes for them. Until then they are in our care.
Here comes the part where we need help.
We are looking for people or a couple who likes to help with daily work like cleaning house which includes lot's of cleaning litter trays (with poop). Especially the Kittens we have need a lot attention and can be a bit dirty.
Cleaning our guestrooms, picking up (by manual car) our local cleaner who cleans our cat house (only).
Another job is to help outside with a bit of gardening, weeding and watering. We have lots of fruittrees like Mandarines, Oranges, Lemons, Chirimoyas, Figues, Nispero to pick and eat fresh from tree:-)
Of course there are other bits and bops in and around the house, garden and cattery which need to be done. Sometimes for example cleaning the cat-house if our local cleaner has a day off!
It would be great if you are someone who also likes to cook healthy vegetarian food for around 4-8 people. This would be a plus! 9 year old tabby Cat Lucy is also a helper in the kitchen. Please no Fast-food eater!
In a place like this there are also always repairs to be done. Maybe you are a good handyman or woman too who can use a drill and other tools. We would really appreciate this!
With us live 3 dogs. A very gentle and funny Afghane-hound, an elderly Labrador girl and a big Mastin Espanol. They are all very friendly and love to be brushed and cuddled. There is one specific cat called Buersti living with us, a 10 year old ginger tom-cat.
Here of course life turns around cats, cats and cats:-) Cats are with us in the house as well as in the cattery on property. Of course bedroom or caravan of helpers can be cat-free-zone. But apart from that cats are everywhere with us.
We will live close together which means we share all facilities. They should be left clean.
We offer a very nice private guest-room. As well we can offer a big 7m clean caravan to have more privacy. A sweet little, wooden cabine is also an option in the middle of a beatiful garden. outdoor toilet is 10m next to it.
If you are traveling with you own vehicle we can offer a space with electricity on our land.
PLEASE NOTE: This place is not for people who are looking for a cheap holiday stay in Andalucia. We need people who have their head together and are centred and balanced and have NO addictions! If you need a place to recover from the past experiences this is not the place to be, because it is a place where we are responsible for lots of cats, their health and life, which is a big responsibility! We expect that our helpers are mainly here to deal with cats!
If you have skills in creating a veggie garden we would be happy to let you start this project.
PLEASE NOTE: European driving lisence is essential! with minimum age 23 due to car-insurance allowance. Car is a big 4x4 manual!
Apart from the job wich will be around 4-5 hours a day we can offer a nice pool in a very peaceful, beautiful and romantic very big garden. Of course lots of lovely, fury friends offering company.
