Looking for a responsible, trustworth and reliable sitter who will primarily look after our cat and be at home everyday at least to feed him, give him some fresh water and some attention as well (we don't expect you to stay at our home all day, but to at least show up every day so Percy gets some human interaction).
Percy is a 3 year old, sweet and VERY friendly and smart cat, so we need someone who will spend more than just a few minutes with him and need someone to acknowledge him/interact/play with him everyday so he doesn't bother our neighbors with his loud and sad meow all day long (we don't need you to play for hours, just interact with him for a little while, even just a few minutes, so he doesn't feel too sad that we are gone). Someone who will take care of our belongings as if they were your own.
PS: If anything gets broken or missing, we expect things to be replaced, and the apartment at least as clean/tidy as we left it for you. (we are definitely NOT OCD-clean people, we just don't want to get home to any unpleasant surprises).

We live in the north side of Chicago, Edgewater neighborhood, a block away from Loyola University's main campus. Our apartment is a 1BR apartment a little bigger than a hotel room (those that have a small kitchen area, living room, etc), so as you can see far from being fancy (we are young and a newly married couple) but with enough space for up two people. If you are a person that is used to high end comfortable things in your own house, our place may not be the perfect fit for you, so please keep your level of comfort in mind before applying! We have a small dining table with 4 chairs, only one 3-seat couch (the apartment can't fit more than that), one small bathroom and our bedroom with a queen size bed, dresser and a study desk.
We are a block away from the red line trains, Granville station, which runs 24/7 every single day of the year. A trip to downtown is about 30 minutes by train, and we live within walking distance from many awesome restaurants, a block away from an Aldi grocery store, CVS pharmacy, Mac Donald's, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, Jimmy John's, Subway, Popeye's and many other places that we can recommend for eating out/take out.

If you don't like cats, don't have references, plan to bring a child under 10 years old, are not reliable and don't intend to sleep or at least come to our place everyday to care for Percy PLEASE don't bother applying for the task. Only the sitter(s) is(are) allowed in the house and building, we don't allow any strangers or house guests other than what was previously agreed upon. Please be thoughtful and respectful of our wishes! Our apartment is right next to our landlord's office and our hallway has a security camera as well, so if anything goes wrong we will find out pretty quickly! And we may or may not have a webcam set up in the apartment (we depend on you having good references and a police check in order to decide about this) so we can make sure Percy is well and having his needs being met while we are away.
