I am in a panic. A previous sitter called and asked if we had a long sit Jan/ Feb. I said yes 5 Jan-17 Feb and they said they wanted it. My computer started acting up and I have lost all my files to include my Housecarers file?? Now, I don't know who it was, but I have not heard anything from them so I am thinking they've changed their minds. If you haven't, please call me. I am going to repost this as it's getting close to our departure.
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 we are within about a 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, Ms Kat, 18 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 except 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, and we will clean it before we leave. I have a cleaning lady who comes in once a week and a yard man, also once a week. No smoking inside the house. We have wifi, cable, 4 TVs, Sonos, washer/dryer, dishwasher. I can give you names of people who have Kat sat for us from Housecarers if you would like to check us out. We will be leaving early on 21 Oct so would like you to arrive on the 5th of January so that we can show you the ropes, familiarize yourself with the house and Kat. We will be returning on the 17th ..In the interest of Truth-in-Advertisement, I have to tell you that Ms Kat has a new ritual of serenading us early in the morning around 5:30+- It entails getting up, giving her 2 treats, giving her water out of the bathroom sink and letting her outside. I hope you are an early riser or can fall back asleep easily.??
