I'm looking for a housesitter from December 23rd to January 4th.

I live with my cat in a 1-bedroom basement suite in Victoria, BC. My place is sparsely furnished (think graduate student) but is clean and comfortable. The shared backyard has a garden in it and surrounding trees and feels slightly secluded. There is wireless internet, but no TV or stereo. My landlord and another tenant live on the floor above me; both are quiet, pleasant and respectable. There is shared laundry on site.

I'm looking for an individual (preferable) or couple to look after my indoor cat Roxy. She is very low-maintenance, but is easily intimidated and non-plussed by anyone other than me. :) She is not aggressive but is timid and will mostly keep to herself. She will take a long time to warm up to you, and deals best with people that leave her be. I need someone who can be kind and patient with her and take her unique personality with a sense of humour. All she requires is feeding twice daily and daily cleaning of her littler box. She does not go outside.

I live approximately 15 min (driving) from downtown and have grocery stores, pharmacies, and other amenities within min walking distance. The apartment is a few blocks from the Swan Lake nature sanctuary and the Galloping Goose trail. Public transit is nearby and easy. I also have a mountain bike that is available for use, although you would need to provide your own helmet, lights and lock.

Please check out the attached photo gallery. Thanks!
