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! (If you need to come in on Thurs Oct 11th or leave on Sunday Oct 14th, we can be slightly flexible with our dates...)
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.
We have a super comfortable double size foam mattress in a bedroom for you. No kitties allowed in the bedroom. We have a cozy wood stove, air conditioning, washer/dryer, a rocking chair front porch and patio, a large flat screen to hook up your Netflix from your laptop, a huge garden and flowers and fruit and berries and vegetables. We also have a Vitamix, crockpot, grill, water filter, and on demand hot water for tea/ coffee....
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. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We have three awesome kitty boys...two chill Maine Coon mixes and a sassy tabby. They are low maintenance in terms of care. They have a cat door and go in and out as they desire. They have no litter box. Your responsibilities are to feed them twice a day and keep their water dish full. Give them love (tummy rubs accepted in our house!) Check the mail. Might need to water some plants. Enjoy Asheville. Two of our boys are hunters. They might bring in critters, dead or alive. So you must be comfortable with cleaning up critter remains. They usually eat most of what they catch.
