My husband & I are looking for a non-smoking cat sitter for our 14 year old cat, China. China’s an indoor cat that likes to sleep during the day in her favorite chair and she has a few other favorite spots. In the evening, she likes to be in the same room with her “people”. China’s been diagnosed with asthma and she’s going through treatment (an inhaler).
We live in a seaside community located on a peninsula, south of Boston, MA. Our house is on a hill with views of the bay and a short walk to the other side of our hill are additional views of the Boston Harbor Islands and Lighthouses. Walks along the beach or a summertime swim in the bay are very close by. Boston is easily accessible, options include year round weekday and summer weekend Ferry Service (within walking distance of our house); a beautiful ride through Boston Harbor and Train Service is a 20 minute drive away. Within a 10 minute drive is the town center. Services include a well-stocked grocery store, a bakery which is a local favorite, a pharmacy, a post office and banking services. We have a number of excellent restaurants and seasonal opportunities to purchase lobsters right off the boat.
