  2. We're seeking a pet/house-sitting assignment in the lakeside area - Ajijic/Chapala, available Oct. 3 - 25, 2017. Email works best, first contact. Our local Ajijic TelCel phone 554 873 8564 Rebecca and I are pet/house-sitting in Ajijic currently. This assignment ends Oct. 2, 2017. At that time we'll be available for a pet/house-siting Oct. 3 - 25, 2017. We take care of your property and pets according to your instruction, and maintain steady contact with you. We are considerate of your belongings, privacy, and will maintain your home as you left it, keep a watchful eye; your place never looks empty. Care for your pets: We pay attention to health (cleanliness, feeding, exercise, medications, vet visits, etc.), maintaining their sense of security by keeping routines and giving them attention, affection and play (according to the pet's inclinations). At various house-sits we've also handled mail forwarding and incoming deliveries, relayed phone calls, arranged for repairs. We've had to problem solve and cope with unexpected situations. We are discreet, conscientious, quiet, and follow through with our commitments. No drugs, alcohol or smoking, and no pets of our own. We have references; here are examples > Eric & Meredith- House / Pet sitting Reference 12 September 2017 Jerry and Rebecca have taken care of our house and 2 dogs on several occasions, sometimes for as long as 5 months. They are everything you could wish for! They formed a close bond with our dogs and, frankly, gave them more TLC than we are generally able to find time for. They got long walks every day and lots of affection. Both of our dogs had medical issues at some point during their stay; Jerry and Rebecca handled them expertly and lovingly, so that our dogs were really in better shape when we go home than they were when we left. Jerry and Rebecca took excellent care of our home. The house was spotless, and the yard was very well maintained. Jerry is pretty handy, so he undertook some small repairs that I had been putting off for some time, which I very much appreciated. He even tidied up our shed! They truly left our place better than they found it. Rebecca and Jerry are very good about keeping in touch just the right amount while we are away: Not so much that our thoughts are constantly being drawn back to home while we're trying to have a vacation, but just enough that we feel we know what's going on. They are very responsive to phone calls and e-mail. I really couldn't imagine better house-sittersTo Whom It May Concern; Jerry and Rebecca house sat and cat sat for us from October 2015 until April 2016, and again December 2016 until June 2017. We would highly recommend their services to you. They have been very responsible people taking excellent care of our home and our 3 cats. They have kept us informed of their health and condition. They have dealt with some extra issues with our home (roof leak and water heater leak) and kept us informed and were very accommodating during the repairs. They have forwarded mail the post office either couldn't or wouldn't forward, especially alerting us to important pieces of mail. And they have kept track of our voice-mail recordings for important items. They are animal lovers. Our cats which tend to be shy especially around males warmed up to Jerry in one visit. They love animals and lovingly care for our cats. Fortunately, we had no cat emergencies, but we are confident they would handle these issues well. My wife and I highly recommend Jerry and Rebecca as responsible house and/or caring pet sitters. If they are available, we would certainly use their services in the future. Sincerely, Glen & Ann Photos here. http://guadalajara.craigslist.com.mx/pas/6265988548.html Best way to contact, initially, is reply to this ad and we can go from there. Jerry and Rebecca
  3. Hello, Bill here, I would be happy to house sit for any period (up to 30 days or so) that included the following time period. (January 1 thru January 17) I am a retired guy from Minnesota, and will be spending my 4th winter in Ajijic. I love dogs and cats. I do not have a car, so something not too far from the Plaza. I have several references that I would be willing to share.
  4. A plea for help. After spending (and owing) mucho deneros on medical tests and procedures Laurie and I found ourselves unable to find the cash for "first, last and deposit" to rent a new place at the end of our lease. Laurie placed an ad on Beg Borrow Buy and Sell requesting a house sitting job. Our prayers were answered By Pat Moir who needed someone to look after her 5 cats and wonderful home. We arranged that Laurie and I would stay and care for said cats and home until the end of October. Perfect! We had a place and would be able to save the money for a new home of our own come November. Pat said she had wanted to make a difference in our lives and was eager to help us. Unfortunately Pat, the wonderful woman that she was, passed away enroute to Canada where she was going to spend time with family after losing her husband. Her daughter ,Kim, arrived to take stock of the house and grieve. Things were still on course for us to stay in the house as Pat wished. When the step son arrived,Kyle, all Hell broke loose. They both now want us to vacate. Unfortunately we neither have somewhere to go or the money to deal with a new rental. Mexican law states that they need to give us 3 months notice whether we had a signed contract or not due to basic possession of the house. I haven't the heart to get into an ugly battle with someone who has just lost her Mom even though apparently have every right to. We both understand the agony these folks are going through but to toss us to the street is beyond uncompassionate. Pat herself I believe would be appalled at this. She was a woman of her word and this would go against the grain of her core values. Kyle has offered us some pittance of financial aid just to speed up the process but it will not be enough. So once more we are putting out the feelers for a house sitting gig ( which we are willing to pay for) or a rental that requires no first and last. We can pay up to $700 a month. We are BEGGING someone out there to help us find a place post haste. Laurie is in California right now for medical reasons and I am left here to feel like a leper in a home that was supposed to be ours for 3 months. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get us off the streets! My email is spexmex@yahoo.ca phone number is 331 433 1408 Thank you in advance for any and all help.
