Yikes! This is the second time in 2 months that I have a trip with less than 2 days notice and my usual housesitters are not able to do the job. I am looking for someone tidy and responsible (well, persnickety or even OCD really), to look out for the house and its two four-legged inhabitants.
The PROS and details: the house is large and beautiful, has tons of upscale amenities like a heated bathroom floor, sweeping city views and is generally a lovely environment. It is seven miles from the center of downtown and is less than a mile from light rail. It is located in the Columbia City neighborhood which (in my very biased opinion) is perhaps the coolest neighborhood in Seattle. One of my cats is a cuddle-slut; the other, well, he's a good kid except when he thinks breakfast or dinner is late, at which time he can be a bit of a yeller.
The CONS: I do not allow meat (other than fish) in my home, there is a tenant in the basement (which limits the amount of dancing you can do in the living room), I do not have a television.
It is my hope to start talking with, and interviewing people for this immediately as my sudden Tuesday departure is too-fast approaching!
I've had a few bad xperiences with longer sitters who left my home damaged so I am seeking someone who is a details person, so if you have ever been called a "neat-freak," love kitties, and think you might like more details about a great house-sit opportunity, we might just have a win-win situation for us both! Write me today and let's start talking about the possibilities!
