From: Aug 16,22  
To:      Sep 10,22
Days:  26, Short Medium Term

We have a quiet rural spot on a spectacular waterfront. Our house is located  about 1 hour drive from Ottawa, Montreal, the US border or the world-class ski hill and resort area of Mont Tremblant.  Our place is a birdwatchers paradise, and 1000's of Canada geese and snow geese use our waterfront as a stopover on their way north.

We are looking for cat lovers to look after Maui our laid-back, affectionate cat.

We need a nonsmoking, fully vacinated couple or individual. You will need your own car as there is no public transportation in the immediate area.  Our house has reasonably

good wifi and netflix and you'll be comfortable with a queen size bed and a refurbished modern bathroom, well-equiped kitchen, gaz fireplace and all appliances.

The area is rural with waterfalls, an all- natural brewery, farmers' market and animal nature park nearby and great bird watching from the living room. Breathtaking sunsets a virtual daily guarentee. We leave our sitters with a list of "local outings".

This is an easy sit - feeding, petting and brushing our cat and keeping the cat litter and house clean, perhaps clear some snow, collect our mail and send us brief bi-weekly updates.

Our current needs are from August 16 to September 10, 2022. These dates include for the sitter(s) to arrive a day early to meet the cat and be oriented.

We'll set up a or zoom with shortlisted candidates to answer questions. Many thanks!

Duffy and Deborah are a warm and interesting couple sharing the ins and outs of their remote country dwelling on the Ottawa river in Ontario. Cat Maui was a pleasure to care for and very affectionate after 2-3 days.  Winter is harsh in Canada and one has to be prepared for cold quiet days spent out in the country.

Cheers, Marie
