We are looking for a house sitter to live in our house this Sept / October with our cat Toonces. The house is in a rural location about 5 miles south of Stevensville and 3 miles north of Victor. It is surrounded by a hay field and ponderosa pine forest. Our home is the first in Montana to be certifed through Passive House US and is designed net-zero. It has one bedroom/1.5 bath and a large loft with an additional sleeping area and office space. We also have an outdoor bath house that is fully heated build into a grain silo.
The Bitterroot mountains have an endless supply of trails, and the Bitterroot river is about 3 miles away. Stevensville is a cute small town with 2 breweries and 2 grocery stores. Hamilton is about 20 min drive south and Missoula is about 30 min drive north.
Toonces is mostly an indoor cat but does like to go out during the day. She would need to be brought in each night. She is pretty independent and can be shy but does love to be pet and to sit on people! We would also need the mail brought in every few days and the trash taken down the driveway (1/8 mi) once a month.
We plan to leave right around Sept 01 and will be back hopefully by the of Oct. We are going to finish the second half of a leap-frog run acoss America. We covered from the Califoronia coast through Kansas this spring and hope to finish out to the east coast of Georgia.
