Brenda and Brian are offering their home in Dudley, Northumberland, England for either a home exchange or to a cat lover willing to live in their home and look after Missy.
Home swap offer: 'We arrive in Auckland on 25 Sept, and will then be in Wellington from 26 Sept until 9 Oct (visiting our son). If you live in Wellington, we're happy to house swap for this week (our home will be available 19 Sept to 19 Oct and we need someone who can be here the whole period to cat sit)'.
Or, house sitter wanted: for the period of 19 Sept to 19 Oct to 'keep an eye on the cat?!!' Please get in touch if you might be interested in looking after our house and Missy in return for a free month's stay.
The couple's home is in a great location for day trips, for example, Alnwick Castle (where Harry Potter was filmed) and 'Barter Books', developed on the old Railway Station site. The bookshop has thousands of second hand books, plus coffee shop, coal fires etc. I can vouch that it is well worth a visit!
