From: Dec 19,22  
To:      Jan 7,23
Days:  20, Short Term

My wife and I have an elderly cat and a large home in Dalworthington Gardens, Texas (suburb of Arlington, TX). They both need to be looked after while we are gone from Monday Dec 19 through Saturday Jan 7 (just short of 3 weeks). We are looking for a mature, responsible, caring, and non-smoking individual/couple that will care for our pet and our home during that period of time.

My wife and I are retired, in our 60’s. We have grown children and grandchildren. We travel regularly, both domestically and abroad.  (We also have a beloved dog, but she is traveling with us on this trip.)

You will have the guest bedroom (on 1st floor), which  includes a queen-size bed and an ensuite full bathroom, along with a walk-in closet. A large kitchen is adjacent and a very comfortable sunlit living room includes a 75-in TV. The house is in a quiet, safe neighborhood of large homes and lots.

My wife is a neatnik and our home is generally kept spotlessly clean.  It is very important that you be neat, clean, and tidy as well. The house is 4400 square feet, but you will only need to use a portion of that space.

The cat is content to be fed twice a day and petted once
in awhile.  It is VERY important to us that
you are comfortable caring for him.  He is 18 yrs old and  not too active anymore.

We have a beautiful backyard with a full-size diving pool and an outdoor kitchen for grilling. Obviously, it won't be swimming season, but the pool may still need some light maintenance.  I will show you what's  needed.  

The interior of the home itself is spacious and comfortable, fully equipped with all necessary amenities.

You will be very close to the Dallas Cowboys stadium and Texas Rangers ballpark.  You will be just a half-hour from Dallas and the George W. Bush Presidential Library, the Perot museum, the Sixth Floor museum, among others.  Go the other direction and you have the unique city of
Fort Worth with its beautiful downtown area and its historic stockyards.

Please let us know if you are interested in this assignment ASAP. If so, please supply at least two non-related references and explain why you would be a good match for us.  We look forward to meeting you!

Thank you,

Mo & Carla

“ Wonderful Couple with everything organized ”

Sit Dates Apr-7-22 - Apr-11-22 Sitter Godsgirl7, Member Since Jun-26-18

Maurice and Carla were very sweet and had everything organized.  I did not see their cat very oftren, but Daisy is a very sweet dog who was easy to take care of.  Maurice also checked in with me twice.  Over all it was a great experience.

(Please note I have had issues with the website and could not write a review before now)

“ Lovable pets and wonderful hosts and house! ”

Sit Dates Apr-7-22 - May-10-22 Sitter docrbud, Member Since May-5-16

The Clarks were kind and generous hosts with a gorgeous and huge house.  We loved hanging out on the back patio overlooking the pool and flowers.  Daisy the dog was sweet and a hoot to play with.  Coco the cat would serenade us.  Anyone who has a chance to pet sit for the Clarks is in for a wonderful time.  We hope we can sit for them again some time.
