    Looking for help with my chattery for

    It’s possible to come earlier/ leave later then the dates I need covered :)

    We are a family with 5 children and a cattery - breeding Sibirian cats :) We are looking for a workawayer who want to join us for the summer - most of the time all or most of us will be traveling (summer vacation).

    We live in a small village outside of Stavanger, Norway - close to the pulpit rock.

    This is a fabulous area for hiking - so it's a perfect place for nature lovers and active people.

    Tasks will mainly be helping with the cattery. Additionally sometimes helping out with AirBnB rental/ house hold. You will not reach the “5 hours a day limit”, and therefore have a lot of spare time :) At the same time, it’s important that tasks regarding the cattery like cuddling, feeding and cleaning is done well. This because the cats need an healthy environment and to be socialized :) When I’m traveling you will have the responsibility here, but I will always be reachable by phone/web :)

    The seasons control what to do in Stavanger. Stavanger has a maritime climate, with cool summers and mild winters. Summers features periods of warm and nice weather, although they sometimes can be rainy. Winters usually mean more rain than snow in Stavanger, although going into the mountains will ensure snow.

    Hiking and climbing around Stavanger is the best way to see the fantastic landscape. Many of the trails have been marked out by the Turistforetning with rocks bearing a red "T". Turistforening hyttes (cabins) provide simple accommodation in the mountains. Also mountain bikes can be hired and taken on the trails. The Pulpit Rock is accessible throughout the year for day trips, while the road to Kjerag is closed during winter.

    Solastranden (Sola Beach) is a long sandy beach by the airport. It is very popular in the summer and allows for some small waves for surfing. Along the beach, in the dunes, are the remains of defences from the 1940-45 occupation. Other less populated beaches are all along the coastline although they are sometimes hard to find.

    Ice skating on Stokkavannet - In the depths of winter the government tests the ice on its lakes. Once the official word is given many Norwegians will head for the largest lake, Stokkavannet. The lake itself is located near to Madla about 20 minutes bus ride outside of Stavanger.

    Should the ice not be safe, and you have a compulsion to skate, another option is the newly built full size indoor long track speed skating arena Sørmarka Arena. There are also several ice hockey rinks at Tjensvoll, ten minutes by bus from the city centre.
