About this assignment

Very responsible, loves dogs & cats, can handle a larger dog (lab). Conscientious and careful with everything and especially friendly with animals. Able to take care of most basic issues that arise.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Short walk for the dog twice daily, feed the dog twice daily, keep water in the water bowl, feed the cat once a day, stay overnight each night, clean up after yourself. Clean out kitty litter every few days. Take out the trash twice a week.

What are the good features of the property and location

House is a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to Orange Line Metro station which is about 35 minutes to downtown Washington. It is in a very safe, quiet neighborhood in a safe, quiet county. It has 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2 living rooms. New appliances. No houses directly in the front or back (a townhouse, so there are houses to the side). Back porch fronts to a teeny forest. Bottom floor has a toasty fireplace. Central air/heat. Great internet/wifi but no cable.

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

Grocery and shopping center 5 minute walk away. Mimi the cat is very shy and you will not see him for the first few days until he warms to you. Then he's fairly affectionate. Zeus the dog loves all new people and will warm to you right away; he's incapable of any sort of aggression. He is middle-aged so will not jump or be crazy. Both are house-broken but dog needs to be taken out a couple times a day and the cat litter box needs cleaned out occasionally.
