I am looking for a house and pet sitter with adequate time to attend to and interact with animals throughout days while I am out of town for extended periods. Prefer couple who likes natural settings, and has prior house and pet sitting experience with cats and dogs.
House sitter will keep house tidy, take out trash for Wed pickup, general household care and cleaning up after their use of the space etc. Water minimal plants once weekly. Daily pet care includes interacting with animals (feeding, straining cat litter / refilling litter, dog time outside 2-3 times per day). No external landscaping care. We have 2 domestic shorthair cats (2 yrs, 10 yrs), and a friendly, 4 yr female German Shepherd dog.
Contemporary barn style home on 10 acres with wooded and cleared grass areas. Neighborhood is private, quiet with only a few neighbors, and backs up to Duke Forest trails (other trails 5 min drive). Also 5 min from Starbucks, grocery, and other commerce, or 15 min to downtown Chapel Hill. House has a first floor master with tub and steam shower, many sitting and desk areas, indoor (adult) swing, large dining table, screened porch and paved patio. We have an invisible fence for dog so letting her out and playing is very easy and hassle free. We have a keyless door entry so no keys to mess with.
Please consider that you will need to provide daily care for animals, be able to commit to extended periods (more than a few days), and must appreciate what the outdoors and living in woods offers (e.g. evening noises, occasional bug, deer, sway of trees, or sounds of nature at night). We do not need you to be mechanical, or do landscaping while you are here. One of our animals is older and is more messy in doing her business than the other. Important to following norms and instructions for all pets; esp. with regard to ever taking dog anywhere out side the home.
