Sitter for indoor cat and kitten.
I am looking for a cat lover(s) to watch after my 10 year old cat, Koz and new kitten, Hemingway (6-toed). Koz is fairly easy. He is a little skittish, may hide under the bed in the beginning and take a day to warm up to you. The kitten, Hemingway, was recently adopted. His estimated age is 7 months. He was a feral stray kitten and +/- 4 months at time of adoption. His socialization is slowly progressing. He will play with me and eat/hang out with me; however, he is still afraid when being touched and I have not attempted to pick him up. In addition to to play with the kitten, the sitter will need to scoop the litter boxes a few times a day, feed the cat(s), and give them fresh water daily.
Our Home & Location
My single family home is located in north Austin. It is close to the Domain, metro train, city buses, and Walnut Creek Park with a summer public pool (Memorial Day to Labor Day), picnicking, hiking, and biking. There is a Whole Foods and HEB grocery store fairly close. There are also numerous restaurants and cafes in the area. The drive to downtown in non-rush hour traffic is +/-20 minutes. It is possible to bus, train, and uber within the city during your trip without using a car. However, if you have a car, it will be more convenient for some outings. The living, dining, kitchen, covered patio, powder room, and bath will be available to you during your stay. Also there is a guest bedroom with a double bed and an additional bedroom that is utilized as an office that has a single futon bed for sleeping.
