Posted on Craigslist this week, a Harlem-based man created an ad seeking a professional pet walker for his "surprisingly energetic and fearless" African tortoise named Henry.
The no-gimmicks-promised post lists all of the duties that are required from the perfect animal sitter -- who, above all, the owner hopes is a "responsible animal lover."
The ad goes into detail saying, "I live a few short blocks from Central Park and have a pet stroller to get him to and from. Once he's there, Henry can roam freely under your watchful eye. No tortoise experience necessary, but you must be an animal person and also good with people. (Trust me -- they'll want to talk to you!) If you're sociable and like to hang out in Central Park anyway, this is an easy gig."
Sounds ideal, right?
The only catch is that you have to live in the NYC area and you'll need to be able to lift the 16-pound beast in and out of the stroller.
If this sounds like everything you've ever wanted and more (who can blame you), head over to the original post here to kickstart your career in exotic animal walking.
