3 'babies' and a warm home need TLC while mom & dad & kids vacay
We have never used this service. We (Kim & Chris) have been married 25 yrs this Dec 31! We have 2 teens, Taylor, 14, and Hunter, 17. We have often travelled with the kids and boarded our 2 dogs. But this year, we had a new addition, "Mew", our 6 mth old cat. She is the most loving and attention needing cat I've ever had. So this year, for our vacay, we decided to try something better for our home and 4-legged "kids".
Our Home & Location
We are in a nice and fairly quiet Oshawa neighbourhood. A few kids here and there, but also middle agers like us. almost everyone has a pet it seems (at least directly around us). We have a very large ravine lot, 60 x 180, with big trees, a patio, a covered deck, 3 bdrms, plus a huge rec room area with wetbar and patio doors to back yard. We like it, but it is certainly 'lived in'. I wish I could declutter in 2 weeks but that won't happen. What I can promise is peace, love from our little ones (they love to sleep with you and Mew will actually kiss you awake if you want her to sleep in the master with you)….and WiFi with Netflix. Master, living room and rec room have tv with PVR capability. There's a gas fireplace in our rec room, full laundry and 2 baths. All in all, a typical middle class Full House. close to bus routes, but I might provide keys to my car for the right applicant, or if needed in emergencies.
Responsibilities & Pets
we just need someone to love our hearth and home while we are away; to give Max, Tuffy & Mew attention and love, feed them each morning and night and make sure they get let out in our fenced yard to 'do their thing' 3 or 4 times a day. 2 times (morning and night) would work too, they're good boys, but if you are not working outside the home, they love outdoor play time. I'd be happy to pay for some housework (we have 2 sloppy teens and 3 animals & we both work fulltime, so I consider our house a mess, my husband says I'm too hard on us/myself, but there you are! I'm honest...can't afford a housekeeper!) basically I would love for someone to cuddle into our space, watch Netflix, read, whatever....so long as everyone is safe, warm and happy at home, I can truly enjoy the vacation we need so much!)
