We have a 16 yr old cat, Patches, a calico. She needs her morning thyroid pill crushed in morning meal and some liquid med that goes in each meal as well. Hate to leave her but since she's older now I don't want to stress her out with a camping trip. Needs attention, play time. An approx. 6 mth old kitten, Sunny, has decided to hang out here but we don't let her inside. Just needs to be fed twice a day. Its a very low crime area but we feel better having the house occupied while away. We have someone that comes every 2 wks to mow (lot of it, almost 6 acres). Prefer Vegan, Vegetarian, but not mandatory. Our start/end a little flexibility on our part. Duration of housesit may go to mid October if you are flexible.
Keep the house clean. Get the mail from our mailbox. Water some plants mostly outside. Inform us if anything looks important. Be energy conscious/low carbon footprint. Vegans preferred or cook meat outside. Even though its HOT here in the summer we don't turn on A/C because of the cost. However, we understand if someone wishes it on.
p.s. we are also housesitters, since 2010.....
