Hi, My family comprises of myself, Nicky, (lady Nicky), four rescue dogs, four rescue cats and some chickens. I run a small cattery, maximum 12 cats and have dogs staying with me (maxi 3) when their owners go away. I am 50 British and came out to France in 1985 !!! I have worked in many lines of work, conferences and events in Monaco, film production, estate agent and now decided to "retire" haha!! to the love and life of animals... I run my small cattery and kennels and just love it, but need a bit of help with the animals and garden
If people wanted I could help people with their understanding of dogs and how they interact in a group. Having lived in France for such a long time I could introduce people into the French way of life and living and pass on all I could about this beautiful area and places of interest to visit. With many different friends in the region with many different passions, I am sure if you had that extra special request we might be able to help you out.
Help with the daily runningnof the cattery, cleaning and lots of cuddles for the cats.
Help with walking the dogs.
General things around the house
And from time to time pet sitting if I need to go food shopping as when it's hot I leave everyone at home :-)
English and French
I can offer a spare room, in my house for a single person.
We would share a shower & w.c and the kitchen. My house is in a lovely little hamlet 15 minutes from St Girons in the Ariège, it is simple, clean, quaint of course internet and land line, to fixe European numbers if you need.
The first thing I would say is if you like the outdoors, walking, nature and discovering beautiful places then the Ariège is for you.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
