This is a family home so obviously treat it like you would your own home! Clean up after yourself, turn off the lights, wipe your feet and make yourself at home. No smoking in the house but the porch is lovely. Your well-behaved pet is welcome to join you! We do live with a number of indoor/outdoor cats so if you are allergic, beware! We also will ask you to feed the cats in the AM and PM. Don't worry, just a scoop of dry food in each dish! The cats will pretty much demand it!
