1 dog, 2 cats in large home near Austin, TX
We are making a quick trip out of town and need someone to care for our home and pets.
Our Home & Location
Our home is located in a subdivision in Round Rock, TX (about 30 minutes north of Austin). It's a 3000 square foot, 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home which sits on a half acre, shaded lot. We have a large shaded patio that overlooks the backyard. It's a quiet place for a cup of coffee or to catch up on work or reading.
Downtown Round Rock is about a 15 minute drive away. There are numerous restaurants and shops in the area. Austin is about a 30 minute drive. Austin offers music, museums, restaurants, nightlife, etc. The weather in TX is warm/hot....

Responsibilities & Pets
We aren't sure how old Beatrix (Bea) is. She is a rescue dog. We think she is part border collie/ part lab. We got her about 7 years ago and she was 3-5 then. She is very sweet and well behaved. She rarely barks, doesn't get on the furniture, sits on command. She LOVES treats. She enjoys long walks. We usually give her 1-2 walks a day. There is a pond about a mile away where we take her for walks and she can be let loose to run around. She also likes to go in and out throughout the day into our fenced yard. She eats in the morning around 7:00 and again in the evening around 6:00. She doesn't require a lot during the day. She can be left for several hours if you want to go for day trips.
The cats are 11. They are large, we think part Maine Coon. They sleep a lot and generally just lay around and look cuddly. We always keep a bowl full of food and water for them. They like to be brushed and pet. Sometimes they want to get in your lap. We let them go in and outside as they want. They have a litter box that needs minding, and they get hairballs fairly often....
The fish needs to be fed every couple of days.
There are some plants on the patio that will need watering.
It is all pretty low maintenance. The walks can be skipped some days or just do one. None of the pets are allowed in our bedroom. + More info
