Cat sit in a Vancouver view home
I am a wildlife photographer based in Vancouver. I often need sitters to look after my two elderly cats when I am away in the field. In addition to the dates listed, I will also be away parts of Sept, Oct and Nov 2018. Please note that dates listed are approximate as I will be driving or flights are not yet booked.

Responsibilities & Pets
Cat sitters must be able to spend as much time as possible with my two cats as they are very sociable. Both require medications and subcutaneous fluids so if you are familiar with such treatments, that would be great. You will, of course, also need to feed them, scoop their litter, cuddle and play with them. Ideally you are somewhat flexible as to my return date as I never know what I will find when I am in the field. You must be quiet, non-smoking and willing/able to send me frequent communications by voice and email. Minimal gardening is required as I have someone who looks after the yard. You must keep the house clean and tidy. Ideally you will be able to meet with me a month or so before my departure to go over everything to do with the house and cats. No kids and no pets, sorry. You don't need a car to get around but bonus if you have one in case the cats need to go to the vet. Be great if you live locally and are available to cat sit repeatedly as I travel a lot for my work.
Moray is 18 years old, gray short-haired cat half Burmese, very cuddly. Lester is an orange tabby short-haired, very adorable. Moray came as a foster cat from a shelter 17 years ago and was so charming I kept her. Lester was abandoned at three weeks old in a barn in New Mexico where I was photographing. I bottle raised him and he drove with me through five states and four provinces back to Vancouver. You will love them!...
