We would like a couple or an individual to care for our home, garden and indoor cat from Saturday, August 14 to September 4, at the lastest Wednesday, September 8. Your flexibility is appreciated.
Our area of the Central Coast, San Luis Obispo, is safe and virtually Covid-free. Businesses are open and the majority of people are cognizant and careful.
You will be staying in a comfortable home on 2.5 acres in the hills of Atascadero surrounded by lovely oak trees, wildlife and a view of the Salinas Valley. Our house is a 25 minute drive from the beaches of Morro Bay and Cayucos. Further north is the artist community of Cambria. Six miles north of Cambria is Hearst Castle. Our area of North County has some of the finest wineries and eateries in the world.
We have small landscaped areas needing hand-watering on an as-need basis. We also have a number of outdoor potted plants that need watering, some of them daily if it is hot. The Hydrangeas on the deck are especially important and sentimental, one of them is 40 years old. They will require some special attention. We do have some house plants as well but only the smaller ones may need attention.
The most important requirement is to feed the cat twice daily and to change her litter box once a day. We use the Purina Breeze litter system which is so much easier. The cat is 16 years old and a bit skittish so you might not see too much of her, but she will come arround.
Full instructions for watering and caring for the cat will be provided.
