Cat care for three
I am a Pilates instructor and my husband is a carpenter/woodworker. We are both from New England but lived in the Bay Area in California for a number of years before moving to Asheville in 2010. We always love having people stay in our home with our cats while we are away, both to keep our kitties happy and to keep our home warm and occupied. We are looking for an individual sitter or a couple only. Thanks for your interest!
Our Home & Location
We live in the 5 Points area of North Asheville, and are 10 minutes walking distance to three grocery stores and downtown Asheville, with an amazing assortment of restaurants, cafes, shops and entertainment. Our house is over 100 years old and is a cute, funky 715 square foot bungalow. Even though we are so close to downtown, we have some beautiful woods just a block away that connect down to the Botanical Gardens. A great walk! We are a short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway and other amazing hikes throughout Western North Carolina. We are about 45 minutes away from Hot Springs, NC, where you can go for a little hike and a relaxing soak in the hot mineral springs.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feed three cats twice a day. Give them love. Check the mail. Might need to water some plants. Enjoy Asheville. We have no litter box...They have a cat door and go outside whenever they want. However, this means they might bring in critters. So you must be comfortable with cleaning up critter remains.
Sleeping options are in the Pilates studio (we'll move some equipment out of there and put a double size foam mattress on the floor), in our lofted bedroom that has ladder access only through a SMALL hatch door opening at the top of the ladder (no cats allowed upstairs or in the Pilates studio). Also, the lofted bedroom has no bathroom. There is also a new futon couch in the living room that is very comfortable, but it means you have to be okay with kitty snuggles.
