What costs would i expect to pay for a pet sitter to come down, feed, water and clean round the buns house daily-i.e empty litter tray and refresh and wipe around lino with a damp cloth. This usually takes me 1.5-3 hours daily depending on how through clean i'm doing.

Also to feed my cats, water them, empty their litter and my hamster who would need the same.

About 6 per hour- so about 126 a week. I wonder if it may be an idea getting someone i know to stay at the house for a week and let them use the facilities etc, live rent free and pay that as well. One option.

Going rate for a home visit up this way is around 10 to 15 an hour for the first 2 pets then varying rates for each additional pet after that.
