Christmas time in Silver Spring, MD
We are looking for a cat and dog lover to watch our eight year old kitty, Carla, and four year old beagle, Lucas. You will stay in a spacious guest room with king bed with full access to the main house . Enjoy peace and tranquility on almost an acre of land that looks out to a creek. We have frequent wildlife visitors in our backyard including deer, foxes, bunnies, song birds and wood peckers so lots to see.
Our Home & Location
Our house is located in Silver Spring, Maryland down a private driveway with easy access to DC. We are 2.5 miles from the Glenmont metro station (red line) where you can park and ride to downtown DC in 35 minutes. We are also walking distance to Aldi grocery store and a dangerously delicious French bakery!
Please respond with whom you would be coming with (if applicable) and timing of when you think you would arrive and leave. Please have references available.
Responsibilities & Pets
Carla is a sweet, affectionate kitty who loves to snuggle in bed at night and nap in sunbeams during the day. She uses an automatic feeder in the mornings for breakfast and needs to be fed wet food in the evenings for dinner. Her litter box should be cleaned daily, and she will need her bowl of water refilled. She can be shy during the day but typically comes downstairs in the evening for socialization, especially if you are watching TV.
Lucas is a very loving and energetic beagle. He normally lives in LA so he adores his trips east to visit family and more importantly all the backdoor wildlife. He would love nothing more than to chase after the deer that walk around our property. Thus, being vigilant whenever you open the door is a must. He will need to be fed morning and evening with a mixture of wet & dry food and requires at least two walks a day. While he is not a big dog (he weighs about 35 pounds), he's strong and tends to pull on the leash when he's excited so we would want a housecarer who is fit enough to pull back....
We have some indoor plants we would ask you to water as well as collecting our mail.
Note: We have a toddler and require a housecarer who is a non-smoker. You will need a car for the area, but you can easily park at the Glenmont metro to take metro into DC for sightseeing. + More info
