If you are a cat lover (not just a “tolerator”), you can enjoy winter in the Okanagan Valley. We are looking for a mature person or couple, non-smoker(s), with a vehicle, to cat and house sit for approximately 4.5 months from mid-November to early April.

Maxi is an older ginger tabby who needs a personal valet to let him in & out, turn on the water tap, feed him, and clean his litter box.

The house is a ranch bungalow with 2 bedrooms, high-speed internet, and 2 satellite TVs. There are some inside plants that need watering as well as a snow shovel. A big back deck with BBQ and hot tub are added features.

Although in town, it feels like the country and is a great area for outdoor activities. We are approximately 30 minutes from Apex Mountain, and there are many opportunities for hiking and snow shoeing as well as downhill and cross-country skiing throughout the valley. Golf is still a possibility depending on the weather. We are 5 minutes from Skaha Lake and 10 from Okanagan Lake. The Naramata Bench, Golden Mile, Okanagan Falls, and Bottleneck Drive wineries are all nearby. The city features a lovely community centre with pool, gym, exercise classes, tennis, pickleball, and other activities. We are a short walk to Walmart and  Cherry Lane Shopping Centre, near a seniors’ activity centre and a bus route, and close to all amenities. 

We ask our housesitters to sign the standard House Carers contract and share utility expenses. Preference will be given to applicants with references and a police check.
