We are a family of four, Myself, Gordon, 52 year old golf professional, originally from Scotland, my wife Carlien, a doctor, and our daughters Darcy,18 and Rowan 16. We have several Animals here at home, a Berner Sennen dog Gina, and 5 cats. % sounds a little excessive but I can assure you that we are not mad cat people, the cats are no trouble whatsoever and spend all there time either asleep os climbing trees in the woods and are no trouble. In any event, it will be no problem to move the dog to my wife's sisters house, and if you don't fancy feeding the cats they can be put in a cat holiday residence. There is also an Owl that lives in a tree in our garden. We don't see him much but you hear him sometimes quietly hooting in his sleep through the afternoon.
