We need a clean responsible non-smoker to care for our two spoiled cats (couple preferred). We have a new custom built home in a exclusive quiet neighbourhood on the outskirts of Cambridge, Ontario. We need someone to look after our home and take care of our girl cats while we are away. The house is fully equipped but a car is recommended to get to services (there is room in the garage for it). There is a local bus stop a 15 minute walk from our house that goes into downtown Cambridge or the other way to Kitchener-Waterloo. References and police check required. Non-smokers only thank you.
The house is located close to Hwy 8 and the 401 in the Freeport area of Cambridge, just across the bridge from K-W. It is less than a 10 minute drive to either the Sportsworld commercial area with restaurants and shopping, or, to Fairview Mall in Kitchener. Our neighbourhood is rather exclusive with large lots including mature trees and wildlife, but close to services. Space will be provided in the garage if the sitter brings a car. No car will be provided, but a car is not required provided the sitter can walk the 15 minutes to the bus stop. The Grand River bus route runs at the bottom of our street (a 15 minute walk from our house). It goes downtown Cambridge in one direction and KW in the other, with easy connections to everything Waterloo Region has to offer. Access to the river for fishing and the Walter Bean Trail for walking or biking are just across the bridge from the bus stop. There are 3 golf courses within a 7 minute drive and lots more within 20 minutes. We are a 5 minute drive / 30 minute walk from Chicopee Ski Hill / Tube Park. The house is custom built with high-end finishes. It has wifi, big screen televisions, a large, fully equipped kitchen, rec room, home theatre, gym and main floor laundry. The back yard oasis includes a large screened-in porch to enjoy summer evenings without mosquitos. There is a natural gas BBQ on the side deck. The guest rooom is large with lots of closet space and, although a basement, has large windows. The entire basement has in-floor heating under the comfortable cork flooring.
You would be asked to maintain the property, check the mail and look after two indoor girl cats. The cats are pretty low maintenance with no specific ongoing medical or feeding requirements. The house has several 'smart' features so the sitter should be reasonably comfortable with simple technology. Of course, since you would be living here, we expect you to keep the house clean and neat as you would your own. Non-Smokers only thank you.
