  • Description


    The borders should be opened from the 15th of June 2020 on. We have vacancy from June to November 2020, minimum 2 weeks.

    We are a smal family living in Switzerland in a village 30 km from Zürich. Our hobby is breeding bengal cats and we are looking for help in feeding, cleaning and cuddling the adult cats and kittens. We eat dinner together, breakfast and lunch are more often individual. The work with the cats takes only about 3 to 4 Hours a day, the rest is cooking or free time. The nature around Bäretswil is very beautiful for hiking, biking and skiing. We can provide a nice room in a house with garden and free meals, sometimes trips to the surroungdings. The accomodation is a nice room in our house with garden, shover and toilet shared with one other Person, kitchen shared with the Family.

    The travellers can learn German, English or French with us, can learn everything about breeding bengal cats and can discuss various toppics with us during the dinner. He / she will also have plenty of time to discover the nature around hiking or biking, can go to the Alps 30 km away or to Zürich 30 km away.

  • Help


    We need friendly helpers who like cats, are not afraid of cleaning, can sometimes work on their own and can also occupy themselves happily during part of their free time. We speak English, French, German, Swiss German and Czech, if you do not speak any of these languages it would be difficult to feel good in our family. We have a small dog and the family consists of 4 people between 27 and 67 years.
