Seeking a low-key, cat-friendly, non-smoking house sitter from April 18-26, 2019 for a no-fee housesit.
You would give care and companionship to my two sweet kitties, bring in the mail, etc. I live in a one-bedroom condo in a pleasant, popular area within Oakland (Piedmont Avenue). It's a quiet, backyard unit with a patio for lounging and fun shops and restaurants a 5-minute walk away.
This is a good home base for exploring both San Francisco and the East Bay (Berkeley, Oakland, etc.) area. The local BART rail station is a 5-minute drive or 15-minute walk -- and from there ride to downtown San Francisco (20 min.). UC Berkeley is 5 miles away, a 30-minute bike ride or commutable via BART and nearby bus lines.
My place is cozy and comfortable, provides all you need (wi-fi, usual kitchen appliances), sweet kitty companionship, and great access to Bay Area attractions and nature spots. The space is a backyard unit so if you are looking for views or lots of bright light, this probably isn't for you. (There are plenty of windows but they look out onto the patio, which is alternately sunny and shady).
I'm looking for a sitter who knows cats and will enjoy giving some pets, brushing, and play to my two "kids."
No overnight guests or parties, please.
