We are looking for a dependable, non-smoking cat lover to watch our nine year old kitty, Carla, over the holidays. Carla is extremely low-maintenance but will enjoy someone who does not interrupt her vigorous napping schedule (but will happily share in nap time). If you are willing to drive us to and from the Baltimore Airport (on and 1/3), you are welcome to use our car during the housesit. We can be somewhat flexible on dates.
You will stay in a spacious, sunny one bedroom apartment with king bed that is above our two car garage. The apartment has a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, convection/toaster oven, and dual-burner hot plate along with cooking utensils. In the apartment there is high-speed internet, beautiful views of our acre of land that overlooks a creek, and use of our streaming accounts to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and HBOGo. We have frequent wildlife visitors in our backyard including deer, foxes, bunnies, song birds and wood peckers a plenty.
The main house where we live is next door that we will be renting for part of the time over the holidays. When our house is not rented you'll have access to the main house, which includes a full kitchen and in-home theater setup.
Our house is located in Silver Spring, Maryland 16 miles from DC. We are 2.5 miles from the Glenmont metro station (red line) where you can park and ride to downtown DC in 30 minutes--free parking on the weekends. We are a 10 minute walk to a nice shopping center with an Aldi grocery store, Starbucks, family-owned Passion Bakery & Cafe, CVS, and an LA Fitness.
Carla is a sweet, affectionate kitty who loves to snuggle in bed at night and nap in sunbeams during the day. She uses an automatic feeder in the mornings for breakfast, but she will need to be fed wet food in the evenings for dinner. Her litter box should be cleaned daily.
We would also like our mail collected while we're away and some watering of our indoor plants.
