We need someone to house sit for us and take care of our two small, very tame cockatiels (they're easy--no prior bird experience necessary) while we're away over Thanksgiving. There’s also an aquarium, but it shouldn’t need anything for this short time.
We live in San Jose, California. In exchange for taking care of house and birds, you get to live in our house, explore the area (wineries, redwoods, missions, San Francisco, etc.). It's a house with a deck, large yard and nice view. The birds need some out-of-cage time every day and you must be here at night, but there's plenty of time for exploring (or working, if you need a quiet place for that).
You will need a car--unfortunately public transportation is inadequate!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
