Pet sitter for 2 easy going cats in cozy Flatbush apartment
Two lovable cats need a caretaker in a sunny, conveniently located Flatbush apartment.
Our Home & Location
We have a large (for NYC) one bedroom apartment on the six floor of a co-op building. The windows face south so it's always sunny, and it's quite warm during the winter. We have very reliable, fast Wifi. The building has a guard 24/7, a live in superintendent, two elevators, a trash chute on the floor, a secure package room and cheap laundry on every floor.
We're located in Flatbush, a quiet, residential neighborhood with a large Caribbean population. As far as amenities go, the staples are all located within a block or two (grocery stores, pharmacies, delis) and there are a lot of good restaurants and bars about a 15 minute walk away in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. We are a stone's throw away from Prospect Park and a 5 minute walk from the Winthrop St 2/5 subway station....
Honestly, the cats are pretty chill once they get used to you. They are siblings and get along well with each other and most people. They really love affection, so it's important to me to find someone who's going to want to spend time with them while we're gone. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Keeping the food bowl full
Changing water bowl 2x daily
Daily litter box changing
Watering houseplants— they’re mostly easy succulents but I'll walk you through everything
Picking up the mail
Brushing Bev-- she's incredibly fluffy and needs a good brushing every few days.
Spending a little daily quality time with K & B. They're going to want to be with you pretty much the whole time you're in the apartment, either right next to you on the couch or a couple feet away from wherever you are. Kevin in particular is very dog-like in his need for affection, and I want to be sure to find someone who is going to be home a good amount of time and isn't going to mind two cats underfoot.
Kevin has a history of urinary tract problems. I'm not expecting him to have an actual episode--it's been about three years since anything happened. That said, monitoring for signs of UTIs (blood in urine, uncomfortable/frequent urinating) is a really important part of cat care while we're gone. We're also very stringent about litter box hygiene and change the litter every day, and it's really important to us to find someone who's going to be willing to do that.
