New Year’s: A Wonderful Time to Cat-Sit in Guadalajara!

Guadalajara, Jal, Mexico

Guadalajara is a wonderful city, with an impressive historic center, and great weather. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment in a doorman building in Colonia Ladron de Guevarra, about 4 blocks from Centro Magno.  If you like movies there is a Cinepolis that shows a lot of films in English in Centro Magno.  There are also a lot of restaurants and bars in the area.  The building is very quiet.  I have good WiFi, cable (including HBO), Disney+ and Netflix.  My cleaning woman will come on Wednesdays to clean the apartment.  (I will cover her compensation.) I use a laundry service that picks up and delivers.  The cost is figured out by weight, I usually pay about $10 USD.  There is an elevator in the building. There is a supermarket around the corner.  If you want a gringo supermarket you can go to Fresko, which is about a 15 minute walk.  There is ample public transportation available.  Uber's usually cost less than $5.

Xena,  is 7 years old and Luna is 1 1/2 year old.  They are both very sweet, and they likes to sit out in the terrace.


You will have to clean the litter box once a day and feed them twice a day.  Make sure they always has water.  Occasionally Xena gets bladder infections.  If this happens you will need to take her to the vet to get a shot or meds.  They have a lot of toys to play with, please play with them for a little while every day.
