We are looking for someone who loves cats and has experience taking care of them. A person who is kind, considerate and who will respect our belongings but also make themselves at home. Someone who is looking for a getaway to relax and rejuvenate or use our apt as a home base to explore the city!
Looking after our senior cat Betty who is 14. She had surgery about 3 months ago and seems to have recovered now, but her eating does need to be monitored, to make sure she doesn't stop eating suddenly & be fed twice a day her wet food mixed into water & fish oil. She's very friendly, snuggly and loves people.
We also have 5 house plants indoors and a backyard garden that will need daily watering, sometimes 2x a day (esp in July!)
We have a lovely backyard with chairs and tables. It's wonderful to have breakfast out there in the morning or turn the twinkle lights on at night. Help yourself to whatever is growing in the garden & ready to eat! We live on a quiet residential tree lined street of brownstones in Bushwick Brooklyn, right on the border of Ridgewood Queens. Our apt gets plenty of natural light and we have an espresso maker as well as an in window AC unit. This area is a really nice mix of affordable delis and grocery stores but with some new exciting coffee shops, art galleries, yoga, bars and restaurants nearby. We are a 7 minute walk to the L train & about 30 minutes to Union Square door to door.
Please consider that we will need you to devote time in the morning and evening to feed and visit with our cat as well as watering the garden. Other than that, you are free to come and go as you please, we request no parties at our apt.
SPECIFIC DATES: 6/28 through Tuesday 7/10 (with some exceptions)
Please note, we will need to stay at our apt on Thursday 6/5 & Friday 6/6 but will be departing again on the evening of Saturday 6/7.
