Thanksgiving / Seeking catsitter

Animals: Schnapps
Hi! For the first time since we met, plumtreeblossom and I are going away for Thanksgiving, to bcat1 [who doesn’t use her LJ account] and spacechicken’s [oops, who doesn’t seem to have one any more] in the land of awesome barbecue North Carolina. We’ll be away something almost a week, from the 22d through the 27th.

plumtreeblossom’s wonderful housemate vanguardcdk will also be out of town.

plumtreeblossom’s cat Ben Ben (who doesn’t have an LJ name, silly boy; I think he uses the Face Books or whatever you kids are using today) is a finicky eater who needs is food and water changed on a regular basis. He also would probably like some company.

So, we are looking for somebody to look in on Ben Ben, feed and water him (and probably change his litter once or twice in there), and give him some attention. Anybody game? This could either be a drop-in-once-a-day thing or (if somebody wanted) a housesitting thing. plumtreeblossom can pay something towards this (although I don’t know how much she’s offering). She can also offer WiFi, cable, and Netflix.

Anybody interested? You’d be helping us go see CUTE BABIES!

I wish I could, but I may be out of town myself.

Oh, cool! (Although that scuppers my nefarious scheme to have you drop in on Chickenfinger once or twice in there.) Wherever you’re going, I hope you have a great time.

I can offer $25 per daily visit, probably 6 visits total. Who wants $150 for opening cans of cat food and scritching the sweetest kitty on the planet?

I'm game! I'm one town over so if you find someone in the neighborhood I'll yield gracefully, but please consider this my tossing my hat into the ring.

Wow, that would be awesome! plumtreeblossom is very grateful, and can offer $25/day. (She thought she had found somebody local, but that didn’t work out.) Thanks so much; we were starting to get worried.

And at some point between now and then we can figure out a time to get you keys and information. (You’ve been over to plumtreeblossom’s before, haven’t you?)

OMG, that would be so awesome! I'm flying off on my broomstick to work, but I'll email you later to talk about the details. Thanks, you, thank you, thank you!

Awww, is no problem! There's a very real chance of Parents being around during that time, so having an errand a mile or two away that I'll need to run off and do might come in very handy.
