Fall in the Rockies - October Sitter needed
We are Gita, Seth and our two daughters, Indigo and Amara. We lucky enough to be situated at 10,200 feet in the sweet little town of Leadville, CO.
Our funky 1880's house is located a few short blocks from the heart of town and also just a short distance from hiking trails and the paved mineral belt trail, which circumnavigates the town offers wonderful x-country skiing in the winter months and excellent biking in the summer months. From our home we enjoy magnificent views of both Mt. Elbert and Mt Massive as well as many other nearby peaks....
We share our home with Rocky, our sweet and loveable (although not always dog friendly) pitbull and Jupiter and Jelly, our two cuddly kitties. + More info
Our Home & Location
Leadville is the highest incorporated city in the US and because of it's 10,200 foot elevation can require some acclimatization for most people coming from lower elevations. This must be taken into consideration for anybody coming up here.
While our elevation can be challenging, the rewards are pretty stupendous. There are infinite wilderness exploration opportunities just out the door from here. We are also just a stones throw from the trail heads for Elbert and Massive, the first and second highest peaks in CO and are just a short drive from numerous other "14ers"....
When you aren't playing in the outdoors up here it's fun to just play in town. We love our little town in the mountains and we also love that we can easily walk down to it's coffee shops, brew pub, restaurants and shops. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We are looking for somebody to care for our dog, our 2 kitties and our home while we are away.
We raw feed our pets which requires a bit of getting used to, but is not terribly difficult. What this means mostly is that you will be needing to thaw food for each days meals....
Jupiter is an elderly kitty suffering from renal failure, so he will require a bit of extra care as well. Jupiter (or Yupi as we call him) gets subcutaneous fluids once a day and some supplemental herbal drops twice a day. + More info
