Pet Sitter Needed for a Dog and Cat (Nov 2015, Apr 2016)
Hello, my husband and I are looking for a trusted pet sitter - a single person or a couple - to take care of our dog and cat while we are away on vacation in November 2015. We live in a three-level house that is six miles from Midtown Manhattan. The house is very modern with 3 bedroom, 3 bathrooms and a finished basement. We are literally 15 minutes by car, 30 minutes by express bus and 45 minutes by subway from Manhattan. My dog is a seven year old female Doberman - she is very friendly to humans but not other animals. My cat is 9 years old and very easy to care for. We'd like the sitter to arrive several days before so we can show him/her/them the ropes. Serious replies only - nothing is confirmed until you purchase non-refundable airline tickets to NY. We'd be happy to pick you up and drop you off at the airport.
Note: For the November 2015 vacation, our 18 year old son will be staying at the house but he lives in the basement and he's mostly in school, with friends and Long Island with girlfriend. Part of the reason we need a sitter is to ensure that he doesn't throw parties at home or invite over friends.
We live in a three-level house that is six miles from Midtown Manhattan. The house is very modern with 3 bedroom, 3 bathrooms and a finished basement. We are literally 15 minutes by car, 30 minutes by express bus and 45 minutes by subway from Manhattan. We have Wifi and Netflix for entertainment. Nearby there are plenty of shops in Forest Hills - the heart of Queens.
We expect the house sitter to take care of our dog and cat and pick up the mail. The dog needs two walks and two feedings per day. She also loves attention! The cat needs to be few twice a day and the litter scooped. The two of them don't get along so the cat lives permanently in the guest bedroom. It is very important to keep them separate! I may even give the cat to a friend for the week.
Also, for the November 2015 vacation, we need to be sure that our son is not inviting friends or throwing parties. Any issues should be reported to us - we will be contact via e-mail and Viber....
For the April 2016 vacation, he will be with us so it's only the cat and dog. + More info
