General description

  • Main home
We live in a 3BR, 2 1/2 bath house in a quiet neighborhood in Southwest Austin, just 15 minutes away from South Congress or downtown Austin. Nearby amenities include a community pool, shopping, dining, Alamo movie theater, Wildflower center, and trails. The house is accommodating for families with a trampoline in the back yard and also playgrounds and parks nearby.

We have a cute and affectionate dog who is crate trained but she obviously likes to be let out regularly into fenced yard. Our cat stays indoors, is independent and just needs food replenished. We also have a pet hermit crab that needs to be cared for. Besides the animals, there are plenty of plants to be watered.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Many plants
  • A dog
  • A cat
  • Exotic pets
Our double-doodle dog is very affectionate, crate-trained, and, while she loves walks and travels well in a vehicle, she really just needs to be let out into the back yard regularly. Our cat stays indoors and is fairly independent. Lastly, we have a hermit crab which isn't terribly difficult to look after but it comes with a specific regimen of spraying that we can get into...

Besides the pets we have a bunch of indoor and outdoor plants that need watering.
