Overnight Pet Sitter Wanted for Pig & Cats - Regular Position - Lakehouse — Archived

Pet Owner in Stratford

Pig and Cat Sitter Needed ASAP! Stratford, CT Here are the details: You'd be staying in a one room art studio at a lake house in the woods on a lake. There are lake views, high ceilings, a large round bed, small fridge, microwave, toaster oven, sink, clawfoot bathtub (in the art studio room) and a half bathroom. The rest of the attached house is rented out so you'd need to be very quiet. A pig is a lot like a three-year old child so this is a full-time situation when you are at the house. You can't leave her alone. A pig is very different than a cat or a dog. I'd like to do a trial one night this week (Monday or Tuesday) while I'm staying in the main house so we can see how you do. You cannot have guests or bring your own pets with you. Pay is $50 per overnight or full day and $25 a half day. I would buy food supplies for your stay if you send me a list. This is a great opportunity for a person who likes to be alone with animals in a private setting. If this works out and we build trust the sitter will stay in the luxurious main house while sitting whenever there are no renters. The main house is gorgeous and very comfortable. There's also a cedar sauna room, boats and a private dock! This could lead to an eventual permanent full-time living situation and a small salary for the person who becomes the full-time sitter for our beloved animals as I'm away a lot. We plan on building an official pig sitter apartment on our property. November: Test run. This Monday or Tuesday night. Pay $50. Sitting 1: Then, the first actual pet sitting would be this weekend from Friday - Sunday. We can discuss the actual start and end time but my preference would be for you to start at Friday at 5pm and end Sunday evening. Sitting 2: Wednesday, November 22 at 5pm - Saturday, November 25th (or if you can do it until Monday November 27th) ($100 on Thanksgiving Day) December: Christmas weekend other possible times - we can discus ($100 rate on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) *** Please be ready to answer the following questions: Pet Sitter Interview 1.
