My husband and I are looking for a non-smoking couple to watch our indoor cat and indoor small dog for 14 days, July 5-19, 2022. Both animals are gentle and sweet but are quite old (cat 15 in 2021, dog 14 in 2021). Although they have little medication (no shots required), we make sure the dog goes out back about 6 times daily to pee (this includes 2 short walks in the neighborhood in the cool of the morning and night) and that both have lots of liquids. We live on a small lake in Jacksonville, which is in northeast Florida. Our home is about 40 minutes from the Georgia border so trips to Okefenokee Swamp, Cumberland Island, St. Simon Island and the Jacksonville Zoo (incredible, btw) would be very doable. We have wonderful beaches within 30 minutes from our house (Atlantic, Neptune, Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, Vilano) and St. Augustine is a very fast 25 minute ride from our house. (check out Vilano Beach with its red boat cruises to see dolphins during the day and sunsets in the late afternoon) Because the animals require attention, being gone more than 4-5 hours just isn't possible. However, if you wish to sightsee more, you are very welcomed to stay up to a week after we get home to visit the areas of interest. Our subdivision is very safe and welcomes walkers with well maintained sidewalks; we have bikes, a jon boat with an electric motor, and a paddle boat that you are welcomed to use as well. There is a great grocery store within 2 miles of our house, a top notch hospital, a preserve with a beautiful creek for kayaking (if you have your own), restaurants...everything is very close. Looking forward to hearing from you.
