    Immediate cat sitter needed with experience starting asap!

    Attention we are currently urgently looking for help with childcare and preparing the house for summertime!
    Couples welcome! We need help the last week of may and first week of June
    You have experience with children, love to cook and your are 100% reliable and trustworthy. there might be even some pocket money for food :).
    Other task include woodworking to sorting out stuff, preparing the house for summertime, cleaning, small renovation tasks....and so on.
    You need to have a driver license.


    Important, please carefully read my full profile and respond with a detailed answer of your pro skills / studies / profession and other skills related to what we are searching for. For that please check the "priority tasks /skills list" .
    You must be professional at least at one of the below mentioned skills in order to be accepted. We had great workawayers but also we made so bad experience, so we became more careful choosing.

    You must be an animal lover specially cats :) also must feel very confident around them and dont mind if our awesome cat Charlie sleeps next to you ( this is only if i am not home for a few days in a row and only in my bedroom wich i might offer to Workaways during the time i am away) so Catsitting is a task for sure, as well as everything that comes with it. And of course regular household tasks / cleaning, we all have our part to make a nice and easy life together, we are all uncomplicated and easy going.

    we moved into our new place, an old traditional cozy wooden house at Lake Zurich last year.
    You will be able to enjoy the mountains and beautiful lake Zurich area at the Goldcoast, Zurich City, the mountains in Glarus and surrounding area are very close, cultural events and gallery, whatever your heart desires.
    We generally need help sorting out, carrying stuff around, loading cars, bringing stuff to flea markets, (building with wood) electric stuff as installing lamps, assemble furniture and so on :)! Drivers license preferred.

    We are also looking for and offering long term stay 6 months - 1 Year, in this case food has to be covered by yourself and special requirements will be discussed. It is important that you are allowed to work and earn your own money for a long term stay. I might can help with how to find jobs, though you have to have a visa that allows you to work in Switzerland, all EU passport owners are allowed to legally live and work here. You HAVE to come prepared, do your research and work before you come to Switzerland, it is not as easy always as it is very expensive to live here, but also many opportunities, just inform yourself really well about all the requirements. the internet tells you a lot if you search ;-). Also make sure you have your working Sim Card (Phone Plan when you arrive here including internet for whats app communication! just inform yourself before you

    Welcome to our nature paradise - I am an artist working with creative concepts and photography - please only send a request if your english or german is fluent - you need to be able to communicate with whats app for easy communication at any time! We live in a house with room mates with outdoor area.
    please make sure you have your own data / internet on your phone!
    Or a travel plan so we are able to talk when you leave the house as well.
    If you need to get a Simcard prepaid for internet and phonecalls, you can get it at the postoffice and its quiet a good deal.

    I am often busy and on the road, so not always around. That is why the following is so important! :)
    BE PROACTIVE ! Communication is the most important at my place, you will have to update me regularly. After you are done with a task, or during a project send me whats app messages. Sadly we had bad experience with workaways that did not communicate well and so much time got wasted. So we expect that you ask if you dont know what to do, as there is always something to do :).
    Listen well and if you are not sure, please ask! i dont mind if you ask 3 times the same question, better ask than not!
    Never light a candle at any time if i am not at home.
    Never smoke inside the house, if you smoke please go to the front house outside area and leave your jacket at the outdoor wardrobe.

    We do not like Foodwaste! Sadly we also made really bad experience with fresh food offered. We used to offer fresh vegetables and fruits and 80% just did not got eaten. So no we stopped as i am not going to waste food and money anymore. We now offer food that is dry or in a jar and plenty of it :).
    Lentils, Rice, Quinoa, Pasta, Tomatoe Sauce, and all kinds of other stuff thats in the workaway drawers, also Flour for bread and pancake baking, all kinds of herbs and baking supplements.
    Once in a while we pick up with the app "togoodtogo" surprise bags of veggies and fruits and that is what we offer fresh and then has to be eaten. Sometimes Eggs, Oatmilk, Milk as well or veggies and fruits. Sometimes i prepare food with leftover that i can share with you, if so i will let you know.

    Another small workaway task will be that you research for yourself on what to cook with the food offered from us and write down new recipes so other workawayers can use it too :), we do it as we experienced workawayers dont know how or what to cook, there is so much online, even on instagram and such. It is incredible what one can do with just one thing for example like quinoa...put in the blender with water, it becomes a perfect pancake base. or make patties for veggie burger, or just simple cook it and make a stew. So there is plenty of ways to cook yummy with simple stuff in many ways. Just be creative.

    All animal products (meat, ect) and specific fresh things that you like you can buy at the store for yourself,
    we mainly live vegan or vegetarian, except of my cat Charlie ;-)
