Home-owner in Turkey seeks Pet-sitters who love Living Like Locals
Have you ever been on holiday somewhere where the scenery simply took your breath away, the holiday atmosphere was authentic, fun and relaxing? So much so in fact that you simply felt you wanted to move there straight away? Well that’s what happened to Sonia, she simply fell in love with a part of rural Turkey that she had never been to before. The mix of striking architecture, rural country life and breathtaking landscapes.
A far cry from Kettering
A former pub owner in Kettering, Northamptonshire, Sonia had visited Turkey before for summer holidays at the coast, but not so far inland. One day after a day trip to visit the Rock tombs in Gokova she was completely overwhelmed by the stunning scenery and the warmth of the people.
Pet-sitters needed to care for 12 cats and 1 dog!
In England, Sonia was always a pet owner and used pet-sitters herself, always supporting local pet charities. She use to adopt rescued cats and dogs, and foster some until they were adopted by new owners. She was also a pet-sitter herself when she could . When she moved to Turkey she founded a small pet charity nearby called Gokova Animal Rescue and began to do the same kind of work, finding it difficult to resist some of the cats for herself.
Spotted by a local
Since moving to Gokova Sonia has determined which are her favourite spots in the region. There are many to choose from.
Sonia is looking for real pet lovers, pet-sitters to come and care for her 12 cats and Cara her German Shepherd. There is so much to enjoy in the region, the local village, the beaches a short drive away and many other sites to visit. If you like living like a local this is an ideal housesit for you.
