Pet sitting & House sitting job in Vancouver Island
Vancouver Island - Capital
I'm looking for a quiet individual to be around for my pets. If you are more of a quiet individual, likes to just hang out and relax, maybe sleep in on the weekends. This is the place for you.
I have a very large cat, who is extremely social. He is an indoor cat, with access to the backyard only. He loves to play, snuggles, and be outside a lot. He's only allowed supervised outdoor time. He's up at the crack of dawn for his morning backyard play and breakfast. He will snuggle in bed with you once he's comfortable with your presence.
I have a large dog, who requires minimal care-taking as she is up there in her years. She plays from time to time, but prefers to sleep. She needs to be woken up to go outside in the morning, and then she will most definitely head back to bed until mid morning/lunchtime. She enjoys short slow walks in the coolness of the day.
There will be indoor and outdoor plants to water, as well as mail collection and garbage - depending on how long the stay is. All responsibilities will be specified during a sitting negotiation.
You will have your own parking space. You'll have your own bedroom. It's within walking distance to a grocery store, public transit, and other amenities if you are without a vehicle.
I am looking for someone solo, or perhaps a couple. No families please. I live in a strata and would like to keep the noise down. I have a very clean home, looking for someone to maintain that while I'm gone. I love my pets and my garden, so keep those in tip top shape is what I'd love to come home to as well. There is a small school/day care on the other side of the fence. If you enjoy children then this is a bonus. The noise isn't constant, nor can hear it inside the house or in the backyard.
