We are traveling 10 days in August, leaving our two adorable cats behind. They are a sweet brother and sister who sometimes snuggle together; they are shy at first but love people and laps. We're hoping to find a cat lover (or two) who can keep them company. Both cats are gentle and shy, so we're especially looking for someone quiet, gentle, and comfortable administering a simple liquid med (read on...).

Bear, our tuxedo, has been diagnosed with small-cell lymphoma, although he has no symptoms in the past several months except lethargy. Poor little guy!! He just needs one easy med per day--liquid prednisolone, administered through his mouth, which he doesn't mind taking. (He actually likes the taste!) His lymphoma is slow-growing and not very likely to change in the next month, but we will let you know if it does. To help him with the stress of our leaving, the more snuggles he gets from you, the better. You could also play with the kitties for a few minutes each day--they especially love playing with their special shoelace. :)

Our home is cute and quiet, 1500 square feet including 2 bedrooms (one of which is also the TV "den"), 1.5 bathrooms, living room, "bonus" office room, and sunroom with skylights. The sunroom is our favorite space in the house: out the French doors is a covered back patio leading to the terraced backyard. The front of the house has another nice porch area that gets lots of afternoon sun. We have WiFi; TV with so-so reception; a Chromecast setup that you can link to your devices for free viewing of Netflix, etc; and a DVD player; we don't have cable.

We have a window AC unit in the bedroom, and the rest of the house has no AC but stays pretty cool, even in the summer heat. It often feels like you're entering an air-conditioned house when you walk in on a hot day.

We're situated just an eight-minute walk from Multnomah Village, a beloved little Southwest Portland shopping area with cafes, restaurants, a local bookstore, antiques, and a community center. The 44 bus stops two blocks from our house and runs downtown every 15 minutes--downtown is a 15-min bus ride away, or 10 min by car. Also nearby are several parks: Spring Garden Park has playgrounds and walking paths and is just a couple blocks away; Gabriel and Woods Memorial Parks are larger with more forested trails and are within a 10- to 15-minute walk. Our home and neighborhood are the ideal place to feel quiet and peaceful while still being very close to Portland's attractions.

Let us know if you're interested or have any questions. Kili and Bear would love to meet you!

Thanks, Katie & Ron
