We live in a small (5,500+) beach front town. We are 1 hr 15 mins to New Orleans and the same to Mobile. Our house is on a quiet street about 1,000' to HWY 90 and the beaches of the MS sound and within less than 1/2 mile walk to downtown and our great coffee shop cum book store, restaurants and shops. We have 2 bedrooms baths. We have 1 inside/outside cat, Kat, 13 years old (a rescued cat from Hurricane Katrina, ergo, the name). We are avid birdwatchers and have various feeders that need to be brought in at night (raccoons) and put out in the morning. We have an irrigation system for most of the plants with the exception of 3 on the patio and 2 in the front where the sprinkler system doesn't reach. We have NO grass so no mowing. We have an outside fountain which will need to be cleaned every 2-3 weeks depending on what's falling from the trees (don't need to worry about that). We also have an inside water fountain for Kat that needs to be cleaned and filter replaced about every 2-3 weeks (I'd clean it before you come, so nothing to do there). I have a cleaning lady who comes in once a week and a yard lady. also once a week. No smoking inside the house. . We have wifi, cable, 4 TV's, Sonos, washer/dryer, dishwasher. I can give you names of people who have cat sat for us from Housecarers . We will be leaving 11 October, and I'd like you to come a day before so we can show you the ropes. Since it's a short sit, it shouldn't take much time. Our scheduled return is the 21 October.
