I am looking for an experienced pet sitter to watch my male iguana and three cats. Ideal candidate would have experience with large reptiles and be comfortable around a male iguana in breeding season. I can provide full information on feeding, body language, and daily routines for my iguana and cats. All of my cats are sweethearts and love attention. The iguana is usually friendly, but he is 5'5" in length so he can be intimidating. Initially we need pet sitting twice daily from Oct 13-17, but we would love to have someone more long-term for our vacations.
Darwin, Male Green Iguana, 4 years old
Bruce, Orange Tabby, 8 years old
Selina, Calico, 8 years old
Agent, Orange Tabby, 15-year-old
Iguana: Generally very friendly, but can be a little aggressive when scared. He uses very clear body language, so I always know what to expect.
Cats: All very friendly.
Iguana: His heat/humidity in his enclosure is fully automated, but he needs a fresh salad each day.
Agent has thyroid medication applied to his inner ear twice a day.
No, his has his own bedroom for this reason.
Cat: Yes, they all get along well.
Yes, street parking is always available
