I am looking for a reliable house sitter who can take care of my cat, Olive, and maintain/enjoy a mature garden.  Olive is very easy - she is 16 and quite independent.  She goes in and out on her own with a cat door (no kitty litter to clean) and eats only kibble.  She likes company but is not a cuddler, and can be left for the occasional overnight. 

The house is in a quiet neighborhood about a mile from downtown Olympia, walking distance from grocery shopping, hair salon, restaurants and other necessities.  A bus line runs very closeby, no no car is needed.

It is a 1440 sq ft home with 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms and a studio, as well as a 2-car garage and a garden in a fenced backyard.  I will be looking for a cat sitter who enjoys gardening and can keep the weeds at bay until I return in May (it is not a lot of work as the garden is well mulched and just requires maintenance)

The bus stops just a block away and can take you anywhere in Olympia, including the train station, so you don't need a car.  After a local bus takes you downtown, there is bus service to Tacoma and Seattle.  The house is on city water, with bi-weekly garbage, compost and recycling collection, Air conditioning and very good Wifi.  There is also a TV and gas fireplace.

There is an outside deck in the enclosed back yard, so it is a lovely private space to sit outside if its not raining and listen to the waterfall feature.

The Pacific Northwest is ideal if you like to hike, kayak, sail, or just expore, and there are many bike and hiking trails within easy access.

We had such an amazing stay in Olympia with Olive at Mary's house. Such an idyllic setting in a cul-de-sac with a peaceful garden and waterfall pool. Spent hours on the deck during the summer in quiet solitude. Olive is the sweetest old lady cat. She has a cat door and comes and goes at her leisure. One of the lowest maintenance pets we've ever cared for. Mary was gone for long periods of times but was in constant communication with us and we were happy to see her when she stopped by. Such a perfect stay, we are really considering settling down in Olympia when the time is right. Thanks Mary!
