For those of you in Edinburgh/Fife..

Between July 3-23 we're going to be out of the country. Problem is, we have two kitties. I have no experience with kennels, but that seems to be an option, but at £10 per day, i'm looking for other ideas as well.

I've thought about hiring a local young teenage girl to come to the flat every day to look after them for say $5 per day (no idea what's fair). However, this means that a stranger would be daily entering our home (tries not to shiver).

I'm also curious if you know anyone who is in the habit of/is willing to babysit cats at their place for that time. They would have to be kept indoors. For this I guess that £5 per day plus our bringing all the necessary food and whatnot is what I was thinking.

We use a catsitter who comes to our house, but at least provides references as to her suitability. But she does charge more than a fiver a day.

Not sure. It's called 'Beastly Affairs'. She's based in erm.. Kingsbarns, I think. I can't find the number off hand, but reply to this if you want my SO to dig it out. Wouldn't be until the weekend though.

beastly affairs? sounds dodgy ;)

a cursory look in the online phone book didn't yield anything. if you could have a look that would be great, but only if it's not bother to. many thsnks.

I'm told she doesn't do as far as Kirkaldy. Sorry.
