CAT SIT ON OTTAWA RIVER! We are looking for a quiet, respectful, clean, responsible non-smoking person or couple to take care of our cat and home. Solid references required.
No drugs, no parties, no smoking, no drama, no children, no other guests allowed.
Our cat is a 2 year old neutered male and is an inside cat only. He loves attention, chin rubs, to play and to cuddle up on your legs.
Your responsibilities will be to ensure he has food and fresh water available at all times, and to give him some attention daily. Clean litter box daily. Snow blow or shovel as required however I can have the driveway plowed if preferred.
You will need to be present at the house at least once every 24 hours to check on and care for him. We love him very much and need to make sure we find the right person who will take great care of him while we're away.
We have a small home in the quiet residential neighbourhood of Laurentian Valley, on the Ottawa River. It has a yard and is generally very peaceful. The neighbours are friendly, quiet, and non-intrusive. The surrounding area has lots of hiking/snowshoeing and biking (fatbiking too!) trails, flat and whitewater paddling options and skating trails in winter. The guest bedroom has a queen bed with ceiling fan, no air conditioning (for summer sits). For winter there is central heat.
Washer and dryer are on-site. There is parking in the driveway as we suggest a rental car if you do not have your own.
To give an idea of what is near the house:
5-15 minute drive to the nearest grocery store and gas station.
15-20 minute drive to local bakery, restaurants, shopping.
No public bus system.
About 1 hour drive into Algonquin Park.
About 15 minute drive to nearest big box stores (Walmart).
About 1.5 hours drive to Ottawa airport.
About 30 minute drive to beaches in Petawawa and many trails.
There is netflix (no cable TV) and WiFi. Cell and data service can be poor in certain areas of the home.
Air and ground transportation are not provided. You can rent a car if you do not have your own. This is a non-payment exchange.
