    She'll give her 7 days, "with cause", written notice today or tomorrow.

    It's not going to pleasant for me there after she leaves, I know.

    They haven't presented a new contract, they just left a note. And, yes, the hours (7am to dusk/7pm; closed Sundays) are actually in the existing contract.

    Pet sitters generally charge $20/half hour visit for up to 3 animals.
