Walk to shops and restaurants
We need someone to care for our two young kittens, water plants, set the trash and recycling out, accept packages, and make the house look lived in. We foster cats and kittens for a local rescue organization so at times there will be other cats or a litter of kittens here.
If your travel plans mean you will arrive in Cincinnati the day before your scheduled sit, you are welcome to stay with us. Here are my profiles from AirBnB and Couchsurfing so you can see you won't be staying with ax murderers:...
As well as using this site as a homeowner, I also use it as a housesitter myself, so I understand the experience from the perspective of a housesitter. + More info
