My husband and I travel usually twice to three times a year; this year we will be leaving overseas on Sunday January 5th, 2025 and would need an experienced "non-smoking" pet/house sitter, (preferably a retired senior couple) who "love" pets, (especially cats), to stay in our home for a period of 6 weeks

This arrangements could be repeated every year if the experience has been a success.

We have 2 cats: Lucy and Pumpkin: 2 female Maine Coons, (Lucy is 7 months old and Pumpkin is 5 and a half years old). Both are very healthy cats.

We live in sunny La Jolla, a coastal area in San Diego/CA. Our house is 2 blocks away from Windansea beach where the surf is relatively gentle and swimmers, snorkelers, scuba divers and surfers can enjoy the waters. Close by, you can walk along the coast and visit La Jolla Cove, La Jolla Shores,and do some "seal watching". There is ample opportunity to hike, bike and kayak in the neighborhood as well.

In addition, restaurants, bars, hair salons, fitness centers, boutique shops, CVS pharmacies and supermarkets are at a close walking distance from our house.

If you decide to stay in the La Jolla neighborhood, you will not need a car as most activities are at a walking distance. But if you decide to adventure a little further, such as visiting downtown San Diego, going to the Zoo or Sea World, then it is important that you rent a car.

We live in a friendly community; own a 3 story home with 2 patios, with ocean and hill views. House is in mint condition. We live on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the property while the 1st floor  (consisting of a 2 bedroom apartment) is rented out on a seasonal basis. Therefore, we would need help as well in providing keys to the guests upon their arrival, showing them around the premise, and being available if needed for repairs. A list of plumbers and handymens' numbers will be handed out and all rendered services will be paid by us (the owners) via Venmo.

We have a cleaning lady that takes care of cleaning  our house twice a month as well as cleaning the apartment each time guests leave the premise Note: starting April 1st, 2025, our ground floor apartment will no longer be rented out.

What would an ideal pet/home sitter look like?

1) Live part time or full time in San Diego or in any southern area close by, but would also consider pet/house sitters living in other regions of the U.S.

2) Sign our housesitting agreement and provide references. 

3) Shower our cats with a lot of TLC and play with them.

4) Have their own car transportation. 

5) Clean and tidy.

And finally, we "thank you" for taking the time to read our ad.

Warm Regards :-)
