I am a single, 40 year old woman who travels periodically for work. I am looking for a man, woman or couple sitter in August for 10 days to look after 2 cats, small house and garden.

The scoop on my place:

My home is in the south Minneapolis area near Lake Nokomis and Minnehaha Falls. I've been here 10 years, done all the renovations myself. The house is conveniently located to the light rail and the biking/walking trails of Fort Snelling as well. It is a quiet neighborhood, and people here mostly keep to themselves.

The 20s style bungalow has modern conveniences and decor. It is really a charming home for 1000 sq. feet and a lovely little back yard garden for sitting or grilling out when weather is warm. Friends/family stay here often as a city retreat! I'm pretty neat and clean--although with two cats my biggest chore is keeping up with a few dust bunnies and the stray hairball...

I would prefer a "cat person" to house sit, since one of the cats is really a "people oriented" and very affectionate. They do not require much more than one routine feeding of wet canned food per day, litter box maintenance, and pets/hugs when you can spare them.

If someone comes to the house with a small dog, that is fine too. The back yard is fenced in.

The yard here is a small city lot, but the gardens are full of beautiful flowers, vegetables and grape vines. Someone to mow the grass once while I'm away (takes 20 minutes) and do some watering (if there is a dry spell) would be really helpful!

If this sounds like a terrific place to stay for nearly two weeks, please post a reply. I'd be happy to write, talk on the phone or meet you in person.

Many thanks,
