About this assignment

Hi! I am a yoga teacher and writer along with my boyfriend an IT guy looking for a caring person who can mind our apartment and mini ecosystem including our kitties, several house plants and 3 medium aquariums of cool fishes and other small sea life like tiny shrimps and small
Sea eels. We live in a quiet neighborhood called Tallkrogen just outside of Stockholm, about 10-15 minutes on the metro into the city center, or a nice 40-minute walk. Looking for a person who is a homebody who wants solo time perhaps writing or working on a project online who can spend quality time with our pets. If it worked out to be a regular house sitter that would be awesome!

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Caring for our 2 cats with wet food twice a day plus dry food kept out, and water bowl refreshed. Also litter box scooping at least twice a day. Also one of our cats goes on a walk with a leash twice a day (she is a dog kind of cat!) the other cat stays in-house and they both like to hang out on our balcony (safety net in place) when you are home. Also feeding once a day our fish, 2 small sea eels, 1 small frog and a lot of cute little shrimp. We have indoor plants around the house to water not as frequently during during winter season.

What are the good features of the property and location

Quiet neighborhood with small forest down the street that is nice to walk in and there are lots of running paths in nature all around us. We are just outside of Stockholm city so it's also easy to walk, or take the metro into town. Our one bedroom apartment has full amenities for a comfortable stay. It is a quaint neighborhood with a
supermarket, Italian, Thai and Indian restaurants.

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

We are looking for one person to stay here to take care of our pets giving them lots of love with a gentle touch. The aquatic life need to be minded on a daily basis as well - keeping to a steady routine. Cleanliness in our home and keeping organized with attention to detail is important as well. Good communication while we are away is probably the most important to me, so you are someone who actively gives updates is a plus! You are always at the apartment overnight and that you are away for no longer than 6 hours at a time - the cats are very sweet and social and don't like to be alone for too long. Non-smoker only. We ask for a photocopy of your passport in advance and experience (references a plus) with previous house sitting.

Wonderful host

Visiting Jackie was like visiting a friend you know for ages. But of course I was new in town, so she picked me up at the central station, gave me a lot of hints for finding my way to the main attractions and hidden gems of Stockholm. The two cats were easy to please, even the walks with Denise are easy to manage. The fish tanks and plants are not too much work, they´re mainly relaxing. For any questions that should come up, Jackie is there for help you out, but there is a useful list on a memo board she leave in the kitchen and I got reminders via WhatsApp the first day of my stay to find my way into the routine. It is 15 min to ride to the city centre. Grocery, restaurants, and a lovely wood and the graveyard where Greta Garbo is buried in walking distance.

Adorable Cats!!

I had a very great time taking care of the cats, the fish and plants at Jackie's place. Denise and Alex,the cats, are just adorable! Denise loves her walks on the leash every day. It was my first experience walking a cat on the leash and I just loved it! Alex prefers to stay in and is very sweet. Taking care of the aquariums and the plants was also a very nice new experience.Christian and Jackie keep it very organized and very well taken care of. They are a very nice couple.They gave me all the info I needed about how to take care of everything, about the beautiful city and I was very welcome in their place.I hope to see them again some day and I do recommend them.Thank you for the opportunity Jackie and Chris!

Cozy Cat-Home

I can highly recommand Jackie and her Cats as your next Sit. They are lovely and since the first minute you feel close to them. It's so nice there - very hard to go outside, even though you will fall in love with Stcokholm. You are kind of out of the town at a peaceful area, but it's a short way to get to the city center. This trip/Host should be on your list!

Very good catsit with 2 lovely cats

This catsit was very well with 2 lovely and adorable cats, Denise and Alex in Stockolm. I I also looked after 4 tanks of fishes, turtles, salamanders…., it was the first time for me but it was easy to do. Jackie was a very nice person too, she came to pick me up at the train station and then explained me everything about the cats, the tanks and also about the flat, the city, the metro… and when she left, she was always here to answer my questions if I had any on Whatsapp..I spent almost 2 weeks in Stockolm with a nice weather and I really recommand this catsit. Thank you Jackie

Two delightful cats and fascinating aquariums

I was Jackie's first house sitter so she was understandably concerned about the care I was able to provide. Having been through the process I am sure she will be less nervous the next time. I enjoyed looking after Denise and Sunny. Denise is a little princess and Sunny is full of mischief but very affectionate. I found them easy cats to manage. It was my first experience with aquariums and I found them fascinating. Jackie was very generous in ensuring I would be comfortable and provided me with a travel card so I could explore the centre of Stockholm. She also set up chrome cast and HBO so I had plenty of entertainment on hand. The apartment is outside the centre in a quiet urban area but an easy train ride to the city. It is a couple of minutes walk to the local supermarket and has a few good eating places.
