It is a private rescue center for cats, run by 2 spiritual orientated women.
We rescue cats from different killing stations, the street and help people who can't keep their cats anymore.
The cats stay with us until we've found a lovely home for them.

We want helpers who are open minded cat-lover and no people who are just seeking to have a cheap holiday. Enthusiasm and a bond to cats and love to mother earth is required!

We are looking for organised people who have their head together and keep things clean and at their place. As we all live and work together and share all facilities.

You should be willing to help us with the daily housework. As such is cleaning the trays (scooping poop), sweeping and moping, cleaning bedrooms, cooking vegetarian food.
"Please note, in the house were we live are quiet a handful of cats living with us:-). They are always trying to "give a paw" and help cleaning:-)"

If you love to cook and like to share your recipes with us we would appreciate that very much.

On the big property we also have our cat-house, for the cats, we rescue from killing-stations and are for re-homing. This needs to be cleaned every morning from one of the helpers. it also just be visited to cuddle the lovely cats.

Because of the size of the garden there is always some garden work (weeding, watering) to be done.

Ii would be a big plus f you would enjoy working with wood.

Also from time to time we need assistance with airport runs to drop of cats, vet-visits, doing or assisting with craftwork, and other bits and bobs all around the house and big garden.

Working hours are around 4 hours a day. It is never exactly to say.

We also have a sweet Afghanhound living with us. He's very soft and gentle and loves to be brushed, cuddled and walked:-)

It is a nice house with a very big, romantic garden with lots of fruittrees like oranges, lemons, mandarines, avocados, figues, nisperos on the country side of Estepona.

We offer:
-own room in the house
-a big, very nice and clean caravan (both incl. towels and bedding)
-a nice pool to re-fresh
_ parking space with electricity for your campervan, if you travel with your own (not longer then maximum 6 meter)

-walking distance to the beach 40 min
-walking distance into town 60-70 min!
-free WIFI in house
-free meals and drinks (healthy, local, vegetarian food) please NO fast-food fans!

required:
-languages are German (native), English and Spanish
-we expect a B2 level of SPOKEN English to make sure that you understand what we explain
-minimum age 23 due to car insurance
-would be great if you are a bit of a creative handywoman/-man

Minimum stay 3 weeks but preferably longer as cats need their time to get used to new people.
Please understand that we can not take in helper with dogs or children.

If you are interested please contact us:-)

Looking forward to here from you!
