I'm going on vacation. So comments will take a while to be approved.
My cousin who has housesat for us and cat sat for our neighbors, will once again guard the house against errant mail and fliers that may randomly appear. There is a vacation mail stop, but strangely, mail still shows up. So do takeout menus and in this season, political literature. Her rates are reasonable (I think), so if you're looking for a house-cat sitting, plant waterer, who can move your stick shift car for street cleaning while you're gone, contact me.
