My wife and I (both retired) are planning to go to a family event from June 11, and returning on June 18.
We have a home with a large fenced yard. We live upstairs.
The pets are: a standard poodle, male, very friendly and easy to care for. The cat lives downstairs at street level Requirements are only to feed and water both the cat and the dog, empty cat litter, and show them some love; let the dog out and in as needed. A few plants on the deck may need water if it's been very dry.
We are close to Asheville, so there is a whole lot to do and see and experience here - a prime destination.
We are leaving early on June 11, and returning late on June 18th. If you come on the 10th we can show you around before leaving. If you need to leave on the 18th afternoon, that would be OK too.
