General description

  • Main home
Welcome! This is a single family, one bedroom, one bathroom home located in a quiet neighborhood in Mesa’s historic district.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 cats
  • Rodents
We have two kitties, Greggy (calico female) and Little Cat (black, long haired female) who do as they please. They are indoor cats who don’t ask for much besides someone to pet their heads or scratch their bellies. Higgy (white spotted male bunny) is a sweetheart who is litter box trained just like his feline friends, and gets along with them just fine. Higgy likes to hop around the house when he gets a chance, but spends most of his time in his hutch. While he may seem shy at first, he will warm up to you and loves to snuggle on the couch.Our pets are pretty low-maintenance. We are just looking for someone to check on them, keep them company, and provide food/water and a clean living spaces.

Greggy and Little Cat: The cats eat throughout the day and so simply check that each food bowl stays full. There is a “drinking fountain” for the kitties in the kitchen. It holds quite a bit of water and only needs to be refilled about 1x/week or whenever it runs low. The cats share a large litter box which should be scooped 1x/day or every other day.

Higgy: As for Higgy, his food, hay, water, and litter box are all inside his hutch. He will need rabbit pellets, water, and hay daily (maybe some veggie scraps if you have them). His litter box can be scooped daily, but sometimes it’s easier to change it out completely every few days. His hutch will also need to be cleaned out 1x/week because he spills his food. Higgy sleeps in his hutch and is happy to be in there for most of the day but letting him out for an hour or so will make him so happy! Just keep an eye on him since he can get lost in closets or other small spaces.

We have a small “home gym” setup with a pull-up/dip bar, yoga mats, and resistance bands. The backyard is unfinished, but there is a fire pit, table and chairs, and barbecue grill. A washer and dryer are in an outdoor room in the backyard. There is no dishwasher, but the kitchen is large and has lots of countertop space and cabinetry. The covered carport shades one car, and there are large pine trees in the front yard which provide shade for additional street parking.

From Friday 2022

To Wednesday 2022

flexible dates

Our dates aren’t set since we are mostly concerned with finding someone willing to house/pet-sit for an extended period of time. Ideally we would like to be gone for 3-4 months, but can alter specific dates, or shorten out trip if needed. You are welcome to stay in our house the entire time, or stop by daily.
Since this is a long trip, we understand you may not be available every day. If this is the case, we can arrange for family members stop by to take care of the pets for a few days, up to a week. We just need someone available for most of the time we would be gone.
