About this assignment

This position has been filled. Thank you for your consideration. Characteristics I’m looking for: responsible,honest, ability to communicate, loves animals, is kind, and likes plants .
Can handle calls should they arise from our small apartment ..5 single units;
( In a blue moon someone gets locked out ..and needs to be let in. This happens once a year. Just someone that can handle what comes up ..but it’s unlikely anything will .

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Let the cat, Chelsea who is 16 and in good health, in and out when you are around during the day. (Can certainly go out hiking for the day.) Fish get fed a pinch in the am. A few houseplants may need water every 5 -7 days . The cat Chelsea has an automatic pet feeder , so may need it topped up once and water refreshed every few days . She get a bit of moist food in the am. She likes to be pet now and then, and likes to go in and out. She is very quiet at night.she needs to be kept in at night because raccoons move through the neighborhood.

What are the good features of the property and location

Very central highly sought after neighbourhood in Missoula as it’s near the downtown, near bakeries, grocery stores and 2 blocks from the river trail. You can walk everywhere. We live on a dead end street so it’s quiet and the neighbors are kind. We love to walk daily down by the river or cycle into the Rattlesnake wilderness in about 20 minutes from home. Very good hiking all around Missoula in close proximity to town and lots of areas to bike. In the summer Caras Park downtown has lots of free live music during the week and is very popular. We are just across the bridge from 3 excellent farmers and peoples markets in the downtown on Saturdays. Missoula is a vibrant liberal university town and tends to be quite friendly and laidback. People here love to recreate whether it be skiing, Nordic skiing, kayaking, running, hiking or cycling. Lots of musicians ,writers and artists call Missoula home.

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

References. Previous experience looking after a cat. Ability to look after the house, keep it tidy, lock the doors when going out, and be able to handle whatever comes up. The ability to go have a book, go for a hike ,listen to music..relax. Enjoy Missoula!

Had a wonderful time sitting for Patricia and Ivan in Missoula. They were gracious hosts, giving all of the information that I needed to care for the house and cat, who was affectionate and had a wonderful purr. They were in touch easily by email. The neighbors, to whom the hosts introduced me to before they left, were friendly and helpful. Quiet, safe street, within an easy walk to the center of Missoula, gave the best of both worlds. A very nice place to sit if you get the opportunity.
