Vienna in December

Living room. Can you spot Junia?
As our dear readers know, Dagy lives in Vienna, Austria, while Judy lives in Las Vegas, NV, USA. In spite of this formidable distance, we spend a lot of time together. This year, we've already had more than two months of twin time, and there's more to come: Dagy and her other half are going to spend the Christmas holidays in Las Vegas, which is fantastic. The only challenge: finding a good cat-sitter without breaking the bank. Hence, this blog posting: does one of our colleagues want to cat-sit our friendly cat Junia? In exchange you get to spend the holidays in a gorgeous apartment in Vienna for free. It's truly a magical time to be in Vienna.

The place is located in the newly hip 12th district in Vienna and is a two-story condo --approximately 1250 sq.ft. There's wi-fi in the entire place, and there's a fully furnished guest room with access to a private interior patio. The sitter would get to use the entire condo (exception: master bedroom). It's located a few minutes' walk from the subway (line 6). Downtown Vienna is roughly 25 minutes away by subway. The dates: December 9th, 2011 through January 9th, 2012 (earlier arrival and/or later departure might also be an option).

We are looking for someone who is very responsible and who truly loves animals, especially cats. You are of course welcome to bring a partner, but no children, please. The condo has two bathrooms. If you are interested or have any questions, please e-mail Dagy.

Talk about an offer you can't (but I must) refuse - Berlin is way too far away from Vienna, unfortunately. It's been ages since I've been to Vienna, but what a fantastic city. The coffee, I mean café, culture there is enough to make you want to stay forever. Good luck with your search for a cat sitter!

PS: I'm sure they have those pet sitter type places/hostels down there too, but you've probably already looked into that. They are expensive here in Berlin too.

@EP: thanks for chiming in. We've actually received a lot of very enthusiastic responses, and we are now reviewing them. We are huge fans of Berlin, too. You are indeed right; there's something very special about Vienna.

Yes, good point about cat hotels, but Junia is very special and doesn't like to leave the house. She moved once from Vegas to Vienna and now she's done with the cat carrier. We would consider having a sitter come, but we'd also want someone to spend more time with Junia. Honestly, I bet the sitters would just feed her, pet her on the head, and head out of there. We think we are better off with a colleague. Fingers crossed that it all works out!
