We are looking for a house sitter who can live in the house and take care of our two cats and five chickens while we take a twelve week trip.
Our house has a large lawn (1-2 acres), some fruit trees, and a garden. The cats are friendly and will snuggle with you if you let them. The chickens are skittish and do not have much interaction with people aside from feeding and collecting eggs. They are only eight months old, so they will be at peak laying capacity next spring/summer and produce about 30 eggs per week. We have people who will gladly take the eggs if that is too much for you (it usually is for us).
We are looking for a house sitter who will mow the lawn every 2-3 weeks until it dries out for the summer. You will have access to our riding mower for this. We won't have anything planted or needing maintenance in the garden, but we are willing to start some plants indoors before you arrive if you want to garden! The chickens need their food filled about once a week, water every 2-3 days if it hasn't rained, and new bedding added about once a week.
The back of our property includes a large forested area. There is one wide path to a shaded grove (great place to set up a hammock when it gets hot in June/July), but other than that there are no trails in our forest. We are close to both Bremerton and Silverdale, and about an hour and a half drive to Seattle. There are many hiking oppotunities on the Kitsap Penninsula and western Washington in general. The region also has several places for kayaking or other boating.
There will most likely be some construction on one of the neighboring properties, probably starting in early summer.
We would prefer someone who could be here for our whole trip from mid April to mid July, but feel free to message even if you can't stay the whole time or need to start a little later.
