About this assignment

One or two women who love cats, and folks who can spend lots of time during day aa well as overnight at our house. We have one cat, Ziva, and she likes female company! Quiet, no smoking of any kind. No heavy perfumes or scents.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Stay at the house overnight and clean two litter boxes in the basement every day. Watering inside plants and bringing in the mail. Cold months: filling bird feeders and shoveling short driveway. Warmer months...watering garden and outside plants. No mowing!

What are the good features of the property and location

The house is in a quiet neighborhood, on the north side of Iowa City, with a grocery store and gas station three blocks away. One entrance to a large wooded park with walking paths is one block away. We have a large garden and a deck with screened area for warm months. There are two upstairs bedrooms, open living space on ground floor with lots of windows. Two full bathrooms. Easy 20-minute walk to lively downtown where there are lots of good restaurants, movie theaters, yoga studio, coffee shops, library, well known independent bookstore, natural food coop grocery. The university performing arts center and the city park with summer swimming pool is walking distance away too. Between our house and downtown is a "north side area" with cafes, ethnic restaurants and shops.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

We vacation several times a year and would love to find a good repeat match. Must be able to go up and down steps several times a day.
