My cat Little One is super affectionate and loves everyone. . 
He is on a dry food diet so as long as food is in his bowl, no need to be on a schedule. 

I want someone who’s a nonsmoker, and is very responsible with my place, neat and clean. Someone who will enjoy playing with my kitty and give him lots of affection.

My apt is very pretty and cozy, a one-bedroom apt on the 21st floor with a terrace and an amazing southern unobstructed view and also an east view of the river.  It's in center city, right on beautiful, historic Washington Square Park in Society Hill which is in the historic area, two blocks from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.  The Delaware River is about a 10-15 min  walk. There are restaurants and shops in the neighborhood, yet it is quiet. I'm surrounded by lovely Federalist homes and cobblestone carriage streets. There is a great Ritz theater within a few blocks which runs independent and foreign films. There is a pharmacy in the building and a supermarket around the corner as well as a gym that charges for daily usage. 

It's a doorman building with a concierge at the desk, so there's always someone to assist with receiving packages, helping you with your bags, etc.

You can walk everywhere, but there are also buses and subways within a few blocks. We have one of the best mass transit systems in the country. I also have two bikes that you are welcome to use.

There are loads of museums and restaurants  within a few blocks.

There is a washer/dryer in the apt and a lovely renovated kitchen.

Only immunized parties apply please.

Thank you.

“ Urban Perfection with Feline Companionship ”

Sit Dates Oct-12-22 - Oct-17-22 Sitter TiaTango, Member Since May-5-22

I had a lovely time sitting for a long weekend. Before the trip, Francine and I spoke by phone and she e-mailed me complete instructions for pet and apartment. Upon arrival, I found the ideal apartment - smart, elegant, comfortable - and a friendly, easy cat. Francine's neighborhood is excellent: just a few steps from Washingotn Park and many historic sites. Francine and I kept in contact by text and phone. Everything went smoothly.  I enjoyed my time relaxing "en casa" as much as exploring Philadelphia. Thank you, Francine and Little One. 

“ Most desirable opportunity ”

Sit Dates Aug-4-22 - Aug-13-22 Sitter kysitter, Member Since Mar-23-21

We so enjoyed staying in Francine’s beautiful apartment.  It is uniquely decorated with treasures from her travels all over the world.  The furniture and bed were quite comfortable.  The kitchen was well-stocked.  And OMG, the view from the balcony was fabulous!  The apartment is in the most desirable neighborhood (literally) and conveniently located.  I can hardly believe how many historical and cultural attractions we visited.  And there are so many delicious restaurant choices within walking distance.  The best part were Little One and Francine, both of whom we immediately liked.  Little One is an incredibly sweet, cuddly cat.  Francine is interesting, well-read, and communicated easily and promptly.  We highly recommend the sitting opportunity.

“ A Housesit with History and a View ”

Sit Dates Apr-19-22 - May-4-22 Sitter Booklady0001, Member Since Jun-14-20

It was such a pleasure to care for Fran's lovely apartment perfectly situated in the historic heart of Philadelphia. The view from the balcony was a gift every day. Little One really is a tiny, lovable kitty who kept me company throughout and Fran was wonderful to work with, clearly communicating everything needed to make the housesit successful for all. She left explicit notes and even took the time to forward notifications about cultural events taking place during my stay! This was a great opportunity to walk the historic cobblestone streets in the cradle of our nation. I would love to housesit for Fran and care for Little One again some day!

“ Wonderful space in the heart of Philly, sweet cat ”

Francine has a beautiful condo in a high-rise right in the heart of Philadelphia. From her balcony you have an incredible view of the south side of the city and the river.  She is very easy to communicate with, and organized in her instructions. Little one, her cat, is very loving and fun. We were able to walk to almost all the attractions in old town and some of the museums. Public transport is very convenient, and easy to get to from the airport. I highly recommend doing a sit for her if you have a chance.
