Long term sitter wanted for Peaceful Sanctuary in the Finger Lakes
Greetings! We would be looking to have someone house sit all the critters mentioned, as we now have a place in CA that we would be staying at during the Winter months. We are semi-retired restaurant owners one of which has a Culinary Degree/back ground. The other has a technical background. Please keep in mind, this is a long-term stay with pet sitting/care taking/cleaning maintenance that takes only 1/2 hr. of your time a day. It's a fantastic opportunity for someone who enjoys the comforts of our home and a beautiful piece of property with well groomed trails!
Our Home & Location
Our home is located on 100 acres of beautifully landscaped trails. There are two ponds on the property that are accessible by the trails. Great for cross-country skiing in the Winter or fishing! Or just taking a peaceful walk. There are grocery stores within a 2 mile radius. There are many parks, wine tasting tours, and downhill skiing resorts near by. Wine a brew tasting areas.
Responsibilities & Pets
The cats would need to be fed twice a day. Once in the morning and once at night. Provide fresh water daily. Changing of litter boxes daily, and vacuuming of the house as needed. Of course if there are any visual accidents e.g. : cat fur/hairballs, etc. that need to be attended to A.S.A.P. The hardwood floors would need cleaning with special Bruce hardwood floor cleaner provided. The fish would need to be fed once a day with frozen Brine or Mysis shrimp provided,. Also topping the fish tanks off with special RO/DI water provided. The chickens would need to be fed and watered once a day along with coop cleanings twice a month. It may sound a little overwhelming initially, but actually the routine is fairly straight forward and easy. Takes approximately 30 minutes, and allows for many other fun activities for the rest of the day. :)
