House Sitter in Cambridge, Massachusetts

I'm an
Individual
Informally, I've been pet sitting and plant watering on and off as long as I can remember! I've spent many nights with a pair of hundred pound boxers, a set of sibling cats with one that was a scratchy terror that had to be negotiated with, a cat with kidney problems, the odd rabbit, etc. I can handle behavior quirks and any particular needs. I've only recently moved into all-around house sitting, and jumped on here since my current long term gig is coming to an end! For almost 3 months I've maintained two midsize vegetable gardens, ran interference on business and other phone calls, mail, trash, and next-door tenant issues for a couple in a large two-family who needed to stay in England to manage some family health care. Overnight stays with only a few odd exceptions the whole time so that a real eye was kept on the place. Neighbors knew who I was and that someone was home. All things considered, the couple was only bothered minimally. Meanwhile I found it peaceful and also found that it helped me to stay close to (aging) family in the city while maintaining my sanity in the context of city renter and roommate struggles! I am always down to do some heavy lifting and get my hands dirty--so any deep cleaning tasks, or more in depth gardening/weeding/trimming you may want taken care of, shoveling, and so on, I'd be happy to take care of for some small additional fee we could discuss. As a food service vet and a yard fiend I live for this stuff. I manage a cafe in Harvard square, i.e. I have 5 days a week of morning time blacked out. Usually available again by 4:30 latest. If anyone needs a midday walk or some such thing, I may have some people I'd trust with my life who could check in, depending on your location or if you're comfortable with that! (This of course makes less sense for an everyday requirement.) Additionally, workdays of the week do vary, and I could schedule myself to be available 24 hours for any two recurring full days of the week need be. & I prefer regular overnights, but am open to other arrangements! Just finally got a second booster by the way!
