For 9 days | Short Term

My daughter and I need a house and pet sitter for 9 days while we travel to California. Our 5 br, 5 ba home is on a secluded 11-acre wooded property with a cedar deck overlooking a peaceful and scenic backyard. It is a modern custom craftsman house with hardwood floors, lots of large windows, a stone fireplace, and an upstairs rec room with movie projector and screen. We are in a small, family-friendly subdivision on a private dirt road surrounded by forest.

Lake Whatcom is just down the road, and there are mountain and lake hiking trails a short drive away. Shopping is a scenic minute drive away. Bellingham has amazing parks too.

We have two female Australian shepherds: Reed is 8 years old, high energy, a bit willful and a good watchdog, but also a very silly wiggle-butt. Charlotte is 12 years old but very active. She is sweet and anxious to please and probably has some Border collie in her, because she loves to herd Reed. The dogs need to be let out several times during the day, and will need several good, active walks during the week.

We have one male lap cat: Sunshine is a big, long-haired cat who is not the least bit shy and loves to cuddle everyone. He is about 9. Sunshine gets fed twice a day, his litter box scooped as needed, and likes some occasional attention.

Our laying flock consists of 27 hens of various breeds that lay a rainbow assortment of eggs. Their care consists of daily egg collection and treats, and refilling the feeder every other day.

We also have one male Betta fish named Ka pele who gets fed once or twice a day.
