I'm looking for one person or a couple to care for my cat Toiyabe (Toiya) while I'm away for a few days. The individual would also be responsible for caring for small gardens and keeping the place well-maintained and tidy.

I rescued Toiyabe from the Nevada desert when I was there working on a book project. He was two months old and malnourished. He's travelled with me across the country and has lived in different cities. Now he's happy being in one place and is now an outdoor cat. He wears bells when he goes outdoors to protect the local bird population.

He's very affectionate and is used to having someone there who works from home. I don't let him out after dusk as I don't want him out at night. He's a playful cat and a bit of a trickster.

This opportunity is perfect for a writer or artist who enjoys quiet creative time and walks by a river or outdoor activities.

The house has several stone steps going up to it so the person needs to be reasonably fit. 

I live near Gatineau Park with 183 KM of hiking trails (in summer) and opportunities to walk, swim, and bike. I'm a 10-minute walk to the Gatineau River. In either Wakefield or Chelsea, there is an assortment of restaurants and cafes to explore.

I'm also 25 minutes from the Byward Market in Ottawa, one of Canada's oldest and largest outdoor markets.
