Hello. My husband and I work part of the year overseas and will need a mature, trustworthy, and reliable house/pet sitter for our home and very beloved animals in San Antonio, Texas from May 6, 2009 through July 19, 2009. These are approximate dates at the moment since our travel plans are not finalized.
The animals are an older, gentle but shy, German Shepherd and a longhaired and friendly house cat. The dog requires two daily walks and lots of loving attention. The cat loves a human presence but can be independent, too.
We have a small, pleasant home in a quiet neighborhood in northeast San Antonio close to shopping and restaurants. The home is 3 bedrooms (the 4th bedroom functions as an office) and 2 baths. We have wireless Internet and cable TV. The back yard is fenced, nicely landscaped with a refreshing pool for summer enjoyment.
Besides taking care of the animals, the pool must be maintained and some yard work – plant care and watering, but not mowing (we have a service) would be required.
We would prefer non-drinking and definitely non-smoking individuals apply.
We will pay utilities and pet supplies. We ask that you have your own transportation, as our car will not be available. A written house sitting agreement will be required so everything is clearly spelled out. Thank you.
