**Medical necessary travel, confirmed sitter backed out!**
We live in a log home on a small Christmas tree farm in rural northern New England. Our Lucy-kitty is a sweet gray tortie who enjoys companionship while we travel. She does not like loud voices, or loud noises, but lots of quiet time with kind pet sitters. Lucy does not like to be picked up and carried around, but will sit beside you, or on your lap at times, and sometimes likes to sleep with her sitters, although this not required. Lucy needs food and water daily, and litter box scooped. She is allowed outside, only during the day. She does have a curfew due to wildlife in the area. Typically we allow her outside from 8am-3pm, depending on length of daylight. Wild bird feeders will need to be filled, as well as one bird bath. There is likely to be snow shoveling to do. Keeping the house neat and tidy rounds out the list.
Our home has one guest room with queen bed, and one bathroom, as well as WIFI. TV is via antennae, since we watch what we want via laptop. Cell service via Verizon or Tracfone is ok here at our house, although spotty on many of the local roads due to topography. We are 5 miles from a small town that has gasoline and limited groceries. Most of us do shopping, eating out, and such in the Upper Valley area, which is a 30-minute drive from here.
Watching wildlife from the kitchen window is one of the perks here. If you like winter sports we are right in the middle of numerous ski areas; and if you like winter with a good book and a kitty companion, we have that too! There is much to offer in the Upper Valley area, many activities, and even shows at the opera house.
