House-Sitting Horror Stories
Kill the family pet…wreck the sports car…flood the house?
When he was a young man, Slacker killed a family dog while he was house-sitting! He claims that the pooch was old and gross, anyway. It was one of those dogs that was going blind, smelled bad and always looked like it was dead. He’d put the food down and then have to clap to get the dog’s attention. He was supposed be giving the dog medicine, but Slacker swears that not giving the dog its’ medicine didn’t kill him. He never told the family. Instead he left it lie, assuming his dad would take care of it. He has no idea what ever happened to the dog, but he does remember the steak that night was super chewy…Steve, note to self, if you ever go on vacation, lose Slacker’s number!
I went on vacation and came back to a well kept house, my mail neatly piled on the counter, clean water in the cat bowl, etc. The only thing missing was my cat! I called the couple that watched my house and they said they would be right over to explain. Explain? Well, my friends stopped by to feed my cat one day and usually he was at the door waiting for them. They thought something was a bit off, so they went outside to look for him and found the poor cat on the porch, sleeping. What they didn’t realize was that he was dead! The next day, they found him in the same spot and tried to wake him. Not knowing how I would handle the burial, they stuck him in my freezer! I then had to take my frozen kitty to the vet and have him cremated!
