December in Seattle!!!
We are a retired couple living in NE Seattle and close to all transit options. We love to travel, but don't like to leave our pets alone. We have a wonderful small Havanese-Bichon-? mix dog named Ruthie (11.5), and two boy cats Rory (13) and Mel (10) who would love to have you come give them companionship while we we are away.
Our Home & Location
We live in a warm and cozy 1947 white brick house which has been fully remodeled over the years. It has wide-plank oak floors and area rugs. There are two gas fireplaces, one in the living room and one in the finished basement family room, and two bathrooms both with heated floors. The kitchen has cherry cabinets, and a travertine floor. It is fully stocked with cooking & baking utensils and has a gas stove and direct access to the dining room. There are French doors leading to a good-size private backyard with deck, and lots of flowering plants, apple and Asian pear trees. The yard is fully fenced, front and back, with multiple gates.
We are located near coffee shops, movie theaters, shopping, grocery stores, transit, library and a 13 acre park with views of Mt. Rainier.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our small dog Ruthie loves to go everywhere with her parents, so someone who isn't working FT would be a perfect match. She loves long walks or being off-leash in the dog parks and on trails. She's a well-behaved dog of 22 pounds who likes people and most dogs.
Our two boy cats are very independent and come and go at will through their cat door. They need regular food and water, cuddling and petting. There are no litter boxes to clean!...
Our house plants need watering, and the house general cleaning. + More info
