General description

  • Main home
This is a cozy studio apartment in the middle of San Francisco, in the Inner Sunset neighborhood. It’s a perfect mix between city and quiet suburb, where you get to feel the characteristics and personality of the city without the sketchiness. Lots of restaurants, parks, and stores are within walking distance. Most SF attractions are within 30-45 minutes by public transport. The apartment comes with two adorable little kitties, named Pancake [calico] and Toast [ginger]. Both kitties are super sweet and love to cuddle. They don’t bite or scratch, but love to receive head rubs. They’d love to be looked after while we are gone.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 cats
The cats are mostly good at taking care of themselves. Their two litter boxes need to be cleaned out every day and refilled as necessary. They are fed 1 cup of dry kibbles in the morning, which they have 20-30 minutes to eat before the rest should be stored for the next day. They are fed canned food at night and need about half a can. If they don’t finish it in 20-30 minutes, store the rest for the next day. The cats would need some play time each day, around 5-10 minutes is perfect. I'd love to receive an update every day on the kitties, a short message and some pictures will be great!
