*UPDATE* The dogs are back in the USA for a while. You will not be taking care of any dogs. The cats may or may not be there. The ONLY thing I need at this time is someone to house sit and take care of the house. Very easy job!
Calling all animal lovers! Great home in old building with garden in the center of Gaeta. Very central location, walkable to everywhere. We are Americans with homes in Gaeta, Italy and Berlin, Germany. We decided to leave the US for good last year and have no regrets! We have five Chihuahuas and four cats. It pains me to say this because we are such animal lovers but, unfortunately, we cannot allow other pets into the home. Our cats are terrified of anything larger than a Chihuahua and our dogs (two especially) cannot tolerate other dogs. Because we have given it so many tries at socialization and integration, we know from personal experience that is just does not work. We are non smokers and need you to be as well. Absolutely no drugs of any kind whatsoever. I am a vegetarian, my husband is not. IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU WERE WILLING AND ABLE TO STAY IN OUR HOME AND TAKE CARE OF THE PETS DURING THE TIMES WE ARE IN THE US. This would be a huge help to us! Also looking for massage therapist or those skilled in massage.
