Our Oscar was rescued as a young feral cat 7 years ago. He now loves snuggling with us, but is still very wary of strangers. After he quietly and calmly gets used to you, he will love the snuggles with you, too.
Because he is so skittish, he must stay indoors while we are gone, even though he might want to go out. Apart from keeping him fed, the litter box cleaned out, and the house tidy, there will be plenty of time to visit our fabulous beaches, museums, historical sights, restaurants, the Croatan Forest and Cape Lookout National Seashore. The tourist season is winding down, but the weather is beginning to be wonderful. The intracoastal waterway is beginning to fill up with beautiful boats making their winter pilgrimage southward.
Our house is in a slightly remote area of Eastern NC. There are 11 houses on our street, bordered by woods on one side, and the Intracoastal Waterway on the other. The closest grocery store in Beaufort is 20 minutes away. Atlantic Beach is 35 minutes. I believe a car is a must, because we are not close to major airports, and car rental is extremely expensive these days. The house is two story on stilts, so there are steps. We have a large gourmet kitchen, so cooking for yourself can be fun.
If you love cats and raw waterfront beauty- bald eagles overhead, dolphins swimming by, fishing from the dock, spectacular sunsets, stargazing,- or just sitting on the deck watching the boat parade go by, our place is for you.
