Sunny Florida home with kitties
I have two grey/Russian Blue, female cats, Roxy (12) and Baloo (13) and I sometimes provide foster care for a local non-profit cat rescue (right now I have 2 sweet female foster cats, Violet and Petunia, who are under 2 yrs old).
I have a married daughter with two grandbabies living in Colorado, who I try to visit as often as I can. And sometimes I'll visit my other married daughter in Miami Beach overnight....
I've hired sitters in the past, but feel my kitties need more than a once a day visit and feeding. They do better with 2-3 smaller meals of wet food per day, with dry food always available and a bit of company. They're independent and very low maintenance, just appreciate a calm presence, gentle voice and a lap if they want to snuggle. My home has a home phone, high speed internet, TV (with Netflix and Amazon Prime), and a private pool and hot tub in winter! + More info
Our Home & Location
I live between Kissimmee and St Cloud, in central Florida. I have a 3 bd, 2 bath pool home on 1/3 acre in a small, quiet subdivision with very few fences between neighbors and open space behind my back yard with beautiful sunset views and occasional visits from deer, wild turkeys, or sandhill cranes! I'm conveniently located close to the Turnpike and the 417, major toll roads approx 30 mins from the Orlando airport. All the major theme parks and attractions are easily reached within 40 mins to an hour as well as beaches on the east coast (and Cape Canaveral). Beaches on the west coast are about an hour further. Central Florida has so many fun places to explore, it's the best vacation spot. Sitting with my kitties would just be a bonus for your next vacation!
Responsibilities & Pets
Feed small wet food portions 2-3 times/day, scoop litter into Litter Genie at least 2 times/day. Tie off Litter Genies into trash and take trash to curb Thurs pm or Fri am. Refresh water bowls every day.
