We are looking for someone who would love to take care of our two beautiful cats, Raven and Simba. They are indoor cats and are both affectionate, good natured and easy to care for.

We live in the city of Calgary, Alberta,  with easy access to the breathtaking Rocky Mountains, where Lake Louise, Canmore and Banff National Park present Mother Nature at its best. We live in a pleasant residential area, which is a 15 minute drive to downtown. Our community has several ravines and walking paths. Deer are regular visitors behind our home. 

Calgary has an excellent public transportation system, including the city bus and a light rail transit system. Both are  accessed easily from our home.

Calgary is a city of art and culture. You can visit the Glenbow Museum or enjoy art galleries and live theatre. Calgary has a wide variety of great restaurants and is home to the Calgary Flames and the Calgary Stampeders. The city has many parks and green spaces to explore. In fact, Calgary has the most extensive urban pathway and bikeway network in North America. The city maintains approximately 905 km of regional pathways and 95 km of trails.

Visit the Calgary Tower, Heritage Park, the Calgary Zoo and our stunning downtown library, voted one of the top eight new architectural structures built in the world in 2018.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Barbara and Bill

“ Wonderful stays on two different occasions. ”

Barbara and Bill have two affectionate, playful cats who were a joy to care for. I spent a month in their former Strathcona Park home in September, 2019, and was delighted when they asked me back in September and October, 2022. Their current home is spacious and light, and overlooks a ravine--the view is spectacular, with local deer and even moose occasionally sauntering close to the house. 

As loving cat parents, I give them the highest possible rating. Barbara and Bill are kind and generous, making sure my stay was comfortable and I was not lacking in any creature comforts. I felt 150% appreciated for my care giving, and would house sit for them again in a heartbeat, time and distance permitting!

“ Home away from home ”

There are 2 adorable kitties in a great house with beautiful surrounding and daily visits of wildlife at the garden fence. The well organized and generous couple stayed in contact during two months of travels and replied quickly. The neighbors are friendly and helpful, there is a shopping center in walking distance and lots to see and do in and around Calgary.

Thank you Barbara and Bill, sweet Raven and Simba for a lovely stay :-)
