Seeking cat enthusiasts to take care of our babies
Hello! My name is Ryan (female!), and I share a home in Alexandria, Virginia with my partner of 6 years. We love to travel, but began feeling that the once daily 20 min. pet sitting visits weren’t enough time for our two cats while we’re away on longer trips. Well, perhaps they were perfectly okay with the short visits, but we spoil “our girls” and think maybe they’d enjoy having a bit more company throughout the day!
My partner and I both work for the federal government and tend to horde our leave for international vacations that allow us plenty of time to explore new places.
Our Home & Location
We live in a townhome community on a quiet dead-end road with no through traffic. We’re also under 10 minutes from I-395, so getting to Washington DC is a breeze. There are variois bus stops/routes within walking distance. The closest metro is about 15 min away via car. We’re also close to many restaurants and shopping in Alexandria and Arlington.
We have a guest room with queen bed, closet and dresser, as well as a guest bathroom down the hall. We have a balcony on the top level of our home and a small, lovely outdoor space off the basement.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feeding the cats once in the morning/once in the evening, washing cat food dishes as needed, keeping cat’s water fountain filled, emptying and maintaining litter box (automatic, but drawer needs to be emptied every couple days), using vacuum to clean stray litter from mat, wiping box as needed, watering outdoor plants, collecting mail.
