Welcome to my small home
I'm an honest straight forward person retired early for medical reasons. My home is not child friendly. I prefer non smoker, singles or couples. The care of my pets & garden are very important to me. My home is nothing fancy but suits my simple needs perfectly. I rely on the berries in my garden to supplement my diet. I rarely go away for more than 2wks @ a time. I prefer to leave & return midweek to avoid traffic.
Our Home & Location
I live in an adult mobile trailer park I have 2 bedrms. I have a washer/dryer. The bathrm has a soaker tub combo shower. I do not have air conditioning but I do have multi fans for throughout the hme. The windows are eco friendly & keep the heat out. My trailer is an open concept 14x62ft. I have over 12 large house plants that are sometimes on my glassed in porch in the summer that need watering.
I have a15 ft wide yard with 2 large gardens, assorted tubs, pots with flowers & berries that need to be watered & picked. Town of Courtenay 5min away by car. Close to Mount Washington. There are lots of parks, beaches & outdoor activities within 30min drive or a walking distance of 15min to community center, swimming pool, waterpark & 2 malls. You will need to have a car to get to most attractions as bus service is limited.
Responsibilities & Pets
My requirements are for the care of my older Siamese. He can be left alone but not overnight & Simba needs lots of attention while here. Simba likes to sleep with me & sit on my lap whernever I'm sitting. Medication is given orally daily .4ml Aventi joint formula & 2cc heavy mineral oil every morning before he gets his 1/4 can of cat food. Simba suffers from separation anxiety- so he will poop on the floor or couch. Thankfully his diet means he has formed BM so easy to clean & their are blankets on the couches. His litter box requires daily cleaning. he requires plenty of water because he has failing kidneys. I have 2 canaries Tansy & Yarrow that require fresh greens & water daily. They also require fans blown above & below them to help circulate the air the air can't be blowing on them. bird seed needs to have the chaff blown off before adding in more. Once a week boil an egg & give them a tsp each day till it's gone. The old egg must be thrown out at end of each day. I also need my berry garden picked to prevent rot/mold & attracting bad bugs & wildlife to the yard and to prevent stress on the plants with all the fruit. The gardens & planters need watering. The main gardens must have a deep watering every 4-5 days for 1 hour this of course depends on how much rain falls. All pots & plants are thoroughly soaked @ each watering usually every 2 days. I have written up care of pets & garden requirements. Mail comes to house please collect & bring inside. Garbage day is Wed & recycling pickup is every 2 wks on Wed.
