Are you someone who will be staying in (or near) London over Christmas who also wouldn't mind the company of a very awesome cat for a while? I'm getting pretty desperate as I'm going away on holiday and haven't managed to find a sitter. The cattery won't have him since he hasn't been vaccinated. Halp.
I suppose it's a bit awkward to post it here, but I've had no luck on Twitter and my friends (who normally looks after him) are leaving town as well. You seem like a good bunch, so I figured I'd give it a shot.
The cattery would've cost me about £50, so you can have that and a hug if you're able to look after Bruno from 23. December to 02. January. I'll drop him off, collect him and bring everything he needs. I don't mind travelling for a couple of hours if I have to.
He can mostly entertain himself and is pretty low maintenance, so the only thing you would have to do is feed him and scoop his poo once a day (please don't lock him up and go on your own holiday). Also make sure he doesn't go outside, that there's no poisonous stuff around that he can eat and make sure you know where your nearest vet is in case of emergency. That's about it.
Do get in touch if you're able to help me out. I know there are "professional" cat sitters, but I'd rather not leave the keys to my flat with a total stranger. I also don't think he'd go well with other cats; he seems to prefer dogs.
Please don't do it for the money (or the hug) if you actually hate cats.
Get in touch on PM or email@example.com and we'll discuss the details. You're more than welcome to pop over for a beer next week (SE15) if you'd like to meet him first.
