Our clean and quiet home and garden, and the healthy and fun-loving kitties who live here, need someone to take care of them while we are on vacation in mid-late April. The house has an upstairs master suite and downstairs has 2 BR and full bathroom, as well as a comfortable living/dining room, well-appointed kitchen and entertainment room with pool table. Outdoors, because we are in the Lower Hills, there are two patio terraces, a garden terrace, and an open back yard that we've left mostly natural, with gracious and old walnut and redwood trees attracting squirrels and birds. The garden is on an irrigation system - the housesitter(s) could do some light maintenance work, if desired.

The house has great views of the San Fracsisco Bay and is convenient to I-580 (less than 1 mile away). We have a house alarm, strong wifi and off-street parking. 

There are five mature cats altogether, two are indoor/outdoor and three are outdoor (feral TNR rescues). All are healthy, spayed or neutered, and get along with each other. There is a morning and evening feeding routine, and one of the indoor cats uses a litter box. They love to play with humans who will indulge them with various cat toys.

For the humans, the King Estates Open Space is nearby, and the neighborhood is reasonably walkable (though there are hills and no sidewalks in this area). For relaxing and taking in the views, there is a front porch, an upper-level deck, and the garden terrace.
