Hello... We live in a lovely, single family home in JP and need help with kitty care and a little bit of watering the garden. My dates listed are for overnights.
I and my partner are middle-aged women who like to travel and occasionally need house sitting as neighbors often help out. Miles is a very sociable cat, is an indoor-outdoor kind of guy, has many friends in the neighborhood and will want to sleep with you. He is an alpha so we have learned to navigate that. He has more personality than any cat I have had in over 30 years. In the summer, we would appreciate some light watering in the house garden and possibly the community garden, a half block away. But that is not necessary if you prefer not. I have lived in this house for 18 years and it is quite comfortable and in a great location if you work in Boston.
Our Home & Location
Jamaica Plan is wrapped by the Emerald Necklace, our park system that was designed by Frank Law Olmsted. There is a pond within walking distance, lots of good restaurants and shops, and we are very close to the subway, trolley and bus to get you into Boston. If you bike, there is a bike path that also takes you into Boston which is 3 miles away. The house has two bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths. It would be good for a single person or couple but not with children. There is laundry in the basement, dishwasher, a patio, cable tv (but very basic), on-street parking that is always available. Any questions....just ask. And yes, high speed internet access (Netflix and Amazon Prime, too).
Responsibilities & Pets
Miles needs to be fed and given medication mixed in with his food (very easy) in the morning. Depending on the season, he goes out to pee or goes out for the day. He is fine outside all day and will be sitting on the front porch when you come home. If you're willing, we would appreciate some light watering of the house garden.
