We have one outside/inside cats: Kaya. There is a fenced in backyard (very very big). Kaya has places to roam and exercise, but, of course, prefer to be indoors with us.  Durham is a big music area with local places having musical events throughout the year. Three major universities are close by: Duke University, University of NC-Chapel Hill, and NC State.

Kaya has a cat flap. No litter box.  We have cable,DVD, big flat screen TV,Wifi, bookshelves full of books ... lots of windows and light. We prefer to keep heat at We have a wood stove if you know how to use one. We also don't use hot water to wash clothes, we hang our laundry (don't use dryer), and don't use the heat element for the dishwasher.  We compost our scraps and recycle as much as possibly can.  So we are looking for some like minded eco friendly people.  Place is in the woods & private but very close to shopping (less than 2 miles) and two neighbors. You can come in the evening before to meet and greet.

There is plenty to do here. We have Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) which has off Broadway shows all summer long.   

Feed Kaya twice a day.  Feed indoor fish.  Guppies and gold fish. 

Sitter must have car.  Our insurance will not allow other drivers for our cars.

Our sit is not set in stone yet.  We don't have our airline tickets.  We prefer someone who is happy with temperatures around 68 in house so our electric bill isn't sky high.  Wear a sweater or fleece in house (Canadians, please do apply).  We have two woodstoves which you can use if you have experience.  We ask for a $100 supplement to cover heat, water, electricity for your stay over 30 days.
