Marietta/Atlanta northwest suburbs--Lovely home in quiet neighborhood, 3 Cats/1 Dog
We are semi-retired performing artists and educators. We like to travel and want to have someone staying in our home to give our furry family members the attention they need. We've tried kenneling and pet sitters who come in to feed or walk them, but would prefer someone who can spend more time at the house.
Our Home & Location
Our lovely home is located about 20 miles northwest of Atlanta, GA, in the southeastern USA. We are in a quiet neighborhood with access to lots of restaurants and shopping. We are just a short drive from all the Atlanta has to offer, only 4 miles from Kennesaw Mountain National Park and about 10 miles to Lake Altoona/Acworth Beach. The mountains of north Georgia are within an easy drive for a day trip. Our home has three bedrooms with a king bed in master and queen beds in the two additional bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, living room, kitchen with eat-in area, formal dining room, study, office and sun room. The sun room opens to a very private and wooded backyard.
Responsibilities & Pets
The cats are pretty low maintenance: clean litter box daily, make sure the self-feeder and the water bowl are full. Our dog, Marco, needs at least two walks a day with some additional opportunities to run outside to relieve himself a couple more times. He is on a medication that makes him thirsty so being able to go outside several times a day is important. You would need to give him the pill once a day--we put it in a bit of peanut butter and he eats it without any problem. However, you should still be able to go off to enjoy the area for much of the day and if needed we can have a local neighbor come by to give him a walk if you plan to be out for most of the day. A few indoor plants would need weekly watering.
