We are looking for a responsible cat lover to care for our sweet kitty, Cinder, and our 1920s 3-bedroom house beginning March 1 and ending March 18. There’s nothing difficult about what needs to be done: feed, water, and love on Cinder; water the plants; take out the trash; and generally, make sure things are working okay in the house.

The house is about 2000 sf, has been renovated, and is in great shape. You would stay in the guest bedroom which has a queen-size bed and lovely light. There is a beautiful 2nd-floor reading room with windows on 3 sides, a comfy chair, and an adjustable standing desk. We can also provide access to a Mac computer, if needed. Until recently, I worked remotely, so there's solid internet fast enough for video conferencing. A TV room takes up the 3rd floor and there is a small backyard with a patio, hammock, and grill. The kitchen is small but very functional with a gas stove, dish washer, and good cookware.

The neighborhood is very walkable, with restaurants, a co-op, movie theater, library, bike shop, etc. less than a mile away in Grandin Village. The Roanoke River Greenway—which runs 15 miles along the river—is less that 2 miles away, and the Murray Run Greenway is less than a mile away. Roanoke is known for its hiking and mountain biking and even in early spring you’ll find amble opportunities to get outside and into the mountains. The downtown is lively with great restaurants, music venues, several museums, and a weekly farmers market.

We do request that the house/cat sitter be vaccinated againt COVID-19 and refrains from smoking in the house. And since Cinder is an old lady who enjoys having the run of the house, we request that no other cat or dog be brought into the house.

This is a FANTASTIC house and pet sit !  
Beth and Dan are very friendly, funny, generous and great communicators.  Their home is beautiful in a safe, quiet neighbourhood and it is in a fantastic location for hiking,shopping, etc. I did alot of hiking in the surrounding area.  And Cinder is the sweetest cat that I have ever met.  She is soooo soft, affectionate and loves to be brushed.  Every morning we would greet each other on the stairs and I would get a gentle "head butt" greeting from her - it is  the absolute best way to start any day !

I have been invited back and I can't wait to return to reconnect with all of them !
