My two bedroom home is located in a quiet neighborhood in historic Natchez, Mississippi on the Mississippi River. The town is a history lover's dream. It's also great for a quiet, romantic getaway. Natchez is a small rural town but has lots to do locally and in the surrounding area. Great to sit back and relax or go sightseeing every day.
Responsibilities & Pets
The primary responsibility would be taking care of the cats - food, water, litterbox. Watering plants would be helpful as would mowing the lawn (with a riding mower).
