My wife and I are looking for a pet/house sitter to look after our home and sweet older girls in Seattle from Dec 20 until Dec 28.
Our twelve year old Corgi, Rowan is an enthusiastic, happy dog and she is disabled. Her hind legs are paralyzed but she gets around inside the house on her own and outside with the help of a wheeled cart. She needs at least one walk a day 15 minutes or so. Two walks is good too. She gets fed dried food twice a day. Even with her mobility issues she still has a great attitude about life and is not in pain.
We have one cat, Florence, our 17 year old girl who is a shy but loving senior citizen. She mostly sleeps or hides but once you get to know her, you'll be taken with her. A recent pet sitter was accurate in calling her a love bug!
The cat litter box should be cleaned at least daily. Florence can free feed from her dried food and water on our bed (she has serious arthritis and does not move much).
Our modest 2 bedroom, one bath home in the Greenwood neighborhood in north Seattle is tidy, comfortable and equipped with all the usual amenities one needs, WiFi, Netflix, exercise equipment, a fully fenced yard and easy access to several bus lines, to Green Lake and the great 3 mile walking path around it, the zoo and walking distance to the Greenwood shopping area with many restaurants, an excellent bakery, and a good grocery store. We would like you to collect the mail, put the garbage, recycling and yard waste bins out and back in once in the week, and keep the house clean and tidy as it will be when you arrive.
As an FYI, our guest room has a trundle bed, that is, one single bed with another, low to the ground that rolls out. Both have comfortable mattresses.
We would love to have someone (or two) stay who is really a pet person.
Look forward to hearing from you.
