I am in need of a sitter for my cat Lucy December to stay at my home right off the Italian Market in the Bella Vista neighborhood of South Philadelphia.
Lucy is a sweet, older tortie who spends most of her time sleeping and loves to snuggle on the couch. She has IBD so gets a prednisolone pill daily and an anti-nausea pill as needed. She is easy to pill (she lets me get the pill in to the back of her mouth.) And due to the IBD she occasionally vomits. So I need someone who is comfortable pilling, doesn’t mind keeping an eye out for and cleaning up throw up, will scoop the litter box daily, and give her food and water. Lucy also likes company at night so I need someone who is willing to have her sleep on the bed.
My house is a typical South Philly row home that is partially renovated. First floor is open concept: living room, dining room and kitchen with a back patio. 2nd floor has bedroom, bathroom and laundry/litter box room. 3rd floor is office and an empty bedroom. I’m looking for someone who will water the plants in the kitchen, clean up after themselves, and keep the house as tidy as when they arrived.
The house is located on a small, pretty, fairly quiet street in the Bella Vista neighborhood of South Philly just a block from the Italian Market. There are nearby coffeehouses, an open market, shops, and restaurants. Four blocks away is an Acme and Whole Foods. Downtown is just a minute walk and there a several bus lines nearby. Overall it is a great, friendly neighborhood that is both quiet but close to lots of things.
So I hope to find someone who will take great care of Lucy, enjoy my home, and take care of my home like I was there.
