We are looking for a single (one) responsible sitter to look after our well maintained townhouse in the South Loop (Dearborn Park II) from December 15, 2015 until the last day of March, 2016 while we are in California. The house is in a fairly quiet residential area with easy access to freeways, Lake Shore Drive, shops (Roosevelt Collection), eateries, supermarkets, and public transportation. The red line is within walking distance. The house is on four levels with stairs. There is a large guest bedroom on the main floor and two bedrooms on the third floor in addition to a study. The living area, kitchen and dining room are on the second floor. There are TVs in the guest bedroom, the master bedroom, and the kitchen. Washer and dryer on the third floor. We have one sweet short hair female cat (ten years old) who stays indoors and requires very little attention aside from feeding and cleaning her litter box. We thought about leaving her at the vets but have decided it would be best to keep her at home while we are out of town. One of us will return to Chicago for a few days each month to attend meetings and will therefore stay in the house while you are here. Our neighbors are older, well established individuals who keep to themselves. No outside maintanence is needed. We will expect you to keep the place clean on the inside. There is a security system in the house. Our cars (two) will be kept in the garage while we are gone, but you may use the driveway attached to the house to park yours. We are looking for a quiet and responsible non-smoker. References required.
