Seeking a house sitter and cat lover for a neutered male kitty. For Nov 2022. Lovely home, quality heat and AC, full kitchen. Great neighborhood, safe to walk in, close to 2 grocery's; Sprouts, and a 'normal' grocery. Trader Joe's not far. Easy public transportation to downtown, Old Town, the University. Museums, many music events, lots to do. Home of the Indian Cultural Center.
A bit about me; Retired WHNP, herbalist, gardener, volunteer. I am a strong activist for the environment. My goal is zero waste, and I am very close to this. It is difficult to reach completely, but I continue in this direction.
Water; This is a state that is arid, rapidly becoming more and more deplete in water resources. People say 'drought', but truly, we are past this. I save all the water I am able that comes out of the taps in the house to pour outside on the ground. This might be a completely foreign idea for many. I ask any who come to my home to work to honor this. I collect rain in tanks (when it rains, which is not often) for watering (not drinking). A house sitter would not need to understand or mess with the tanks outside usually.
The yard is on a watering system, so there is minimal watering outside required. I do have indoor plants, but they are not complicated to water. If you have no skills with plants, I would like to know.
If you think this would be a challenge as a care-er for my home, let me know. I am not here to judge anyone in their way of living. Gracias
