Hello, my husband and I are looking for a trusted pet sitter - a single person or a couple - to take care of our dog and cat while we are away on vacation in April 2014. We live in a three-level house that is six miles from Midtown Manhattan. The house is very modern with 3 bedroom, 3 bathrooms and a finished basement. We are literally 15 minutes by car, 30 minutes by express bus and 45 minutes by subway from Manhattan. My dog is a four year old female Doberman - she is very friendly to humans but not other animals. My cat is 9 years old and very easy to care for. We'd like the sitter to arrive several days before so we can show him/her/them the ropes. Serious replies only - nothing is confirmed until you purchase non-refundable airline tickets to NY. We'd be happy to pick you up and drop you off at the airport.
What responsibilities are required of house sitter?
We expect the house sitter to take care of our dog and cat, pick up the mail and water the plant. The dog needs two walks and two feedings per day. She also loves attention! The cat needs to be few twice a day and the litter scooped. The two of them don't get along so the cat lives permanently in the guest bedroom. It is very important to keep them separate! The plant needs to be watered once every three days.
We have three house sit positions open - please specify the position you're applying for.
February 14-17th (you can stay longer)
