The person does not have to live at the house, but a minimum of two visits daily is required, and each one would last one hour. In addition to caring for the animals, other duties would include bringing in mail, watering lawn, flowers, etc. In addition to the two cats I have indoors, I also have an aquarium with three turtles and a terrarium with a Gecko. Outdoors, there is a Koi pond, and a large, secure enclosure with 8 ducks, and a rabbit. The animals are on a regimented routine, requiring an AM visit at 8:00 AM, and a PM visit at 5:00 p.m. Each visit will last one hour. In addition to the animals, other simple household chores are required, such as watering the lawn and flowers, and bringing in the mail. Paid training IS required for this job. Verifiable references are required.
