Our first House and Pet Sit
Updated: Jul 4, 2021
Kilmore, East Clare, Ireland - 25th July to 09th August 2020
A lovely soft landing for us when it came to looking after other people’s pets. The homeowners were relaxed and welcoming and the two cats, Jack (black with white paws) ad Kitty (tabby with one eye) were low maintenance but with great personalities and they were even quite affectionate when they chose to be - usually most evening not long before it was time to put them out - and so we felt quite guilty having to put them out - especially when it was raining!
As you can see from the pictures below, the house was located in a rural setting in County Clare and we had fabulous views out to a stunning verdant landscape. With all the rain Alan was busy mowing the lawns and when the sun shone it was wonderful to be sitting out in the beautiful garden.
We had some surprise but welcome visitors for 2 nights. Alan’s sister Anne and her husband Alain who were holidaying in Ireland from their ‘day jobs’ at Bradfield College just outside London. It was Anne’s birthday while they were there - the first time in over 40 years that Alan was able to spend that day with her.
We also explored Limerick and went on a few country walks in the hills of East Clare.
