    My name is uncle Bond, I'm just cleaning house and cleaning garden in homestay at Lake Toba, with one simple room, nothing-to-do. I would love to invite you, my friends to share your skills, knowledge and experience.
    Enjoy your time with animals in the garden and teach me how to help them, especially with poor kitten which I find everywhere - along the road, in garbage dump.

    Help

    We have around 20 cats here and they need everyday care: feeding, cleaning the area, some basic (and advanced!) medicine help. If you have some special veterinary skills, it would be great.

    One of the goals is to build and improve the facilities for cats and kitten: feeding area, quarantine zone for new cats etc. The garden area needs to be cleaned and arranged for homestay guests (chillout zone) and cats (outdoor living place).

    The second area for helping is social media promotion.
    We want to create a community of people who care about animals and learn from them and from Universe itself not university. You can apply your creativity in social media, video and photo to make a positive wave out of nothing. All of your skills could be applied - instagram photos and promotion, youtube, facebook promotion etc. Create and share words for making new friends all around this planet.

    This is a pet-friendly homestay in Tuktuk city in Samosir island which is known for its natural and cultural attractions.

    Even you're just passing by Tuk Tuk you always can come to play with cats, talking, drinking coffee, enjoy life.
    You can stay here free but bring one fish. One person, one fish.

    Our cats are waiting for you.
