Dear Friend,

  1. give contact details for when you are away

I am very thankful that you agreed to take care of my house and my pet when I am off on my holidays. Also, I was so anxious about my pet as nobody was there to take care of her. I am writing this letter to give you a little information about my house and my pet from this Saturday morning till Monday evening, I am out for 3 days. Moreover, here are my contact details just in case you want to ask something: 0123457896.

      2 give instructions about how to care for your pet

My pet Suzie is very playful so you will definitely enjoy spending time with her. She needs 2 scrambled eggs in her breakfast. Dog food I have left on the kitchen platform, just give her one bowl each on lunch and dinner. Furthermore, you need to take her for a walk every evening. She is a very calm and friendly pet so you will have to worry much about her.

    3. describe other household duties

In addition, just a few other common household chores like watering plants and basic household cleaning will be very helpful.

You can come over Friday night to my place so that we can have dinner together before I am leaving.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely



Dear Sanat,

Hope this letter finds you radiant health and best of spirits. I am writing this letter with reference to just refresh to our last discussion a couple of weeks ago and thank you for agreeing to house-sit during my family vacation.

  1. give contact details for when you are away

I will be on a holiday trip next week to ten-day. During this period, if you have any doubts regarding the household chores please contact me either you drop an e-mail or text me a message on whats-up. As I have not yet activated international call service on my phone and might be you cannot connect me during my vacation. I have been jot-down my contact details on a sticky note and left on the refrigerator.

2 give instructions about how to care for your pet


As you know, I am fond of pets and plants. Hence, I always have one cat and manifold varieties of plants at my home. My cat needs food thrice a day at a regular interval of 6 to 8 hours. I have kept enough food and instruction in the kitchen just beside the refrigerator. Furthermore, keep the freshwater bowl and take it away for walking daily.

   3.describe other household duties

Moreover, indoor plants need water alternative day and outdoor in the backyard of the house daily in case if there has been no heavy rain. Finally, for security purposes, please keep my mailbox clean every day and switch on from light at night.

I look forward to seeing you seen on my return.

You’re loving,

Nilesh Patel

    Dear Friend

    Great to hear that you’ve accepted my request to stay for one week at my home, while I would be away from home to spend my vacations in Vietnam

    Let me explain, I’m planning to travel Vietnam to the next day. I have arranged all the things so that you could have a comfortable stay here. If you feel any kind of trouble, you can contact one of my friends, who live in the locality and also I have another contact number of my friend with whom I’ll be enjoying my holidays. So, you can make a call on that number, which I have sent to you.

    Moreover, I would like to have a favour of you to take care of my pet labrador. It’s very calm and loyal. It needs food twice in a day and loves to walk outside in the evening. So, you would have no problem to take care of it. Furthermore, another important information is to pay electricity bill as well as water bill. I’ve transferred amount in your account so that you can easily make payments and when you feel to go outside to watch movies or for any other purpose hold the keys to my neighbor, Mrs. Smith. She is very gracious lady. When I come back, we’ll share a cup of tea.

    Hoping to see you soon.

    Yours Truly
