Days:  17, Short Term To Be Confirmed

We have two five-year old, indoor ragdoll cats in a large, comfortable house with commanding views on a quiet and private two-acre hillside property. This sit would best suit an individual or couple looking to get away for a rural break for approximately 16 nights targeting Feb 20 – Mar 8, 2023 (dates to be confirmed ASAP).

You must have your own car; there is no public transport available in our neighbourhood. There is parking available in the driveway for one car.

We require a responsible, capable, independent, cat loving person or couple with recent house sitting references that can be contacted for verification. 

We offer hi-speed internet/wifi, TV with some cable channels (we can get Net Flicks if you want), land-line , well-furnished comfortable house with heat pump and all mod-cons, large guest room with good linens and en-suite, and from all rooms lovely views over to Victoria, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains.

We’re located in the rural community of Metchosin half hour west of Victoria, ten minutes from shopping of every kind in Langford/Colwood, five minutes from beautiful beaches (driving times) and with nearby access to hiking and biking trails including the locally famous Galloping Goose.

Responsibilities include:                                                                                                        

Kind and gentle care of our two INDOOR male ragdoll cats Susu & Chai which includes feeding, watering, grooming, loving attention, companionship, play and twice-daily litter box maintenance. Also, if required at the time but hopefully not, giving oral meds and cleaning bottoms. They’re independent but do adhere to important rituals of affection, belly rubs, play and snack.

Prepare sugar-water as required; clean and refill hummingbird feeders daily. Water house plants once a week.

Keep house clean and tidy; leave it as it was left for you.

Manage garbage, recycling and green waste efficiently and as per instruction.

Respect heat, electricity, water and septic system usage.

No parties, no drugs, no smoking or vaping. No pets.

You must be able to manage stairs both inside and outside. And FYI, we have honey-bee hives on the property which do not require any care at this time of the year but on a sunny day there will be bees flying (not near the house).

Thank you for your consideration!
