For 4 weeks | Short Medium Term

I'm a teacher & I will be out of town for large parts of my summer, sometime between June 28-August 27th.  I will likely not be gone the whole time, but could work it out to be if someone wanted more time. I'm currently debating a trip as early as June 28th-July 6th & have the week from Aug 19 - Aug 26 already booked with family.

I might want to drop in for an afternoon to get things in between trips, but could also figure out how to be gone for the whole month-2 months. I would definitely not sleep over if you stay long-term but might just want to drop in to check on the cats if I'm passing through town.  

I'm looking for someone to stay here & take care of my cats and fish, in exchange for a couple weeks in NYC.  I can't really sublet with the critters & I feel better with someone in my home with the cats all the time than just dropping in for more of a fee, so I like the exchange of pet-care for rent.  

You'll see in the pictures that I have a small puggle, but she'll actually be spending the parts of the summer that I'm gone with my mom out of town. The other critters will require minimal care & would be my main concern for someone staying here: 2 cats (one is a lover, the other...less so. He's pleasant but anti-social.) There's also a fish tank which will require little attention, but is to amuse the cats.

I live just off Myrtle Ave on the edge of the Ridgewood Queens neighborhood. There's plenty to do & I'm close the the M & L trains, so it's fairly convenient to getting into the city (sometimes a little less so on weekends).

Finally, it's important that you are a non-smoker, or at least no cigs in the apt.  Thanks!

A final note, since I've had several replies very quickly, I often am definitely gone from the last week of July- most of August, which is why the start date is the end of July vs the end of June, because I'm still trying to narrow some things down.  However, I often post this too late to coordinate something better than friends & family helping out, so I thought I'd put it out there to see if I find a better match now instead of last minute.  But that means I probably won't be making super concrete plans for at least a couple weeks. But get in touch & we'll be in touch.  thanks!
