Super Friendly Dog and Independent Cat Need Sitter in NE Pennsylvania
My husband and I both work at home. I type transcripts for various industries and he works in French translation. We enjoy books and music, cooking, travel, and the outdoors. Most of our friends and family live quite far, especially my husband's as he is from France, and we'd love to be able to feel more free to go away without having to worry about our pets and house.
Our Home & Location
We live in a small town in the mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania. We moved here a year ago after living in various cities for a number of years. It's very quiet and safe. There is a small diner in our town, and larger cities not too far for shopping and restaurants, including Binghamton, NY, and Scranton, PA, as well as several charming smaller towns. Elk Mountain is nearby for skiing. Our house is very cozy and comfortable, great for getting some work done or just taking some time away from the hustle and bustle.
Responsibilities & Pets
We try not to leave for longer than about six hours when we go out, during which time the dog is crated. As we work at home, the pets are used to us being around most of the time. The dog is always right next to one of us and loves sitting on people's laps. When we're working he's generally sleeping in a chair in the office near us. We would need someone to take the dog out (several quick walks a day, sometimes just right outside the door in inclement weather), feed them, clean the litter box, water plants, and fill bird feeders in our yard.
