About this assignment

We are looking for a responsible adult or couple able to care for two of our cats.

The house sitter is needed for March 18 to 28

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

The house sitter will need to provide food and water to two of our cats (Charlie and Goo), and scoop litter boxes. Basic home care such as bringing in the mail and putting out the garbage will also be required. If there is snow, the house sitter will need to clear the drive way (we have a snow blower).

What are the good features of the property and location

A country home with lots of space, an outdoor hot tub, big screen television and tournament size pool table. Very quiet, beautiful in the winter.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

We live in the country, so the house sitter will require his or her own transportation as we are a 15 minute drive from Guelph and 20 minutes from Milton. If the sitter doesn't mind being here without a car, we are happy to pick you up at the train or bus in Milton. Uber does come to our house!

We prefer to trade free room for cat and house care.

House sit Christmas / New Year 2019/2020

We had a lovely housesit for Caroline and Brad and their delightful 5 cats. We arrived the day before and they made us very welcome and also ran through the cats routine. They had also printed out information for each cat with a picture which was extremely helpful for the first day whilst we got used to everyone. All the cats were really friendly, some shyer than others but they happily sat on our laps and enjoyed plenty of fuss. The house is very homely, quite remote (no problem as we had a hire car) and there are plenty of great walks nearby as well as 2 main towns for shopping. We also visited Niagara Falls, about an hour and a half easy drive. A great house sit and we would sit again if we were returning to Canada.

An amazing house-sit

Me and my friend Michaela had the opurtunity to house and cat sit for these amazing and friendly people - Caroline and Brad. They gave us all the instructions we needed and helped with everything, as well. The cats were friendly and loved to cuddle a lot, and even though we were just unknown people for them, we got along quite fast, which was very nice. The house, the hot tub, and all the nature around were amazing and so relaxing. If we could, we would definitely go back, and we highly recommend this house-sit, and hope you will enjoy it just as much as we did. ??

A Rewarding House Sit

I recently had the pleasure of house and cat sitting for Caroline and Brad. Their home is nestled in a fabulous woodland property surrounded by some of the finest horse breeding ranches in Ontario. It is quiet and very relaxing and has all the cooking and entertainment amenities necessary for comfortable living. And of course, the highlight of the stay was the companionship of four friendly cats, three of which kept me company either close by or on my knee when watching TV. Two of the cats require medications but it was easy to administer to them and they just accepted the normal procedure they have become accustomed to even with someone who was not familiar to them. Other responsibilities for the feline family include keeping their food and water dishes topped up, scooping cat litter once a day and of course, giving them the occasional treat according to their individual requirements. All of the above was very easy and became a simple routine after a couple of days. Caroline and Brad are very gracious hosts and have printed information regarding the house procedures and each kitty's requirements including colored photos so a sitter can identify who is who until familiar with the gang. If you have the opportunity to spend some time with these folks, you will find it a very pleasant experience
