I'm struggling with what to buy my 90 year old grandfather for Christmas. He's still independent and even drives! What do you buy a 90 year old? He has everything, or the money to buy anything he wanted but lives modestly because he grew up during the depression and served in the Army during WWII. Any ideas out there? More»

Summer and Muffin are sisters that have been together for 13 years. They were well-cared for in a loving home – as evidenced by their excellent health and affectionate natures – and got along well with several other cats. Unfortunately, a sudden change in their owner's circumstances forced him to move and find his beloved cats new homes. Muffin and Summer are healthy, energetic, personable and loving. They seem to like a fairly quiet environment, as they dive into hidey holes when they hear a sudden noise, but this may change as they beco... More»

Cherry is a wonderful little 2-year-old, petite, short-haired girl with interesting markings. Found and fostered in Bloomingdale, she is naturally shy, and probably never will become a true lap cat.

She prefers high perches and will rub against legs and allow petting on her own terms as she opens up. She loves toys and will surround herself in them before bed. She can do scheduled- or free-feeding, which is a nice option if you have other pets. She's goo... More»

I have over 10 years experience babysitting, which includes experiences such as being a full time nanny for 3+ children, chlidren parties with 14+ kids, overnight stays, and regular sitting for newborns through teenage years.
Since coming to DC and having an around the clock job at a government relations firm, I have not been able to find any families to babysit for. However, I recently changed jobs and have much more flexibility in my weeknight/weekend schedule. I live here in Columbia Heights and would love to find some families that need some ex... More»
