General description

  • Main home
CAT SIT ON OTTAWA RIVER!  We are looking for a quiet, respectful, clean, responsible non-smoking person or couple to take care of our cats and home. Prefer references however open to giving new housesitters a chance. Must love cats.

Please no smoking in the house, no illegal drugs, no parties, no children, no other guests allowed. 

Toby is a 3 year old neutered male and is an inside cat only. He loves attention, chin rubs, to play and to cuddle up on your legs. He's happy to sleep by your feet and let you know when it's morning with some meows! He'll have lengthy conversations some days too! Charlie is 1 year neutered female. She likes to observe, do gymnastics and briefly cuddle up on her terms.

Your responsibilities will be to ensure they have food and fresh water daily, and to give them some attention daily. Clean litter box every 1-2 days. 

You will need to be present at the house at least once every 24 hours to check on and care for them. We love them very much and need to make sure we find the right person who will take great care of them while we're away. We're fine if you wish to be in the area to explore, maybe an overnight or day trip to Ottawa.

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. 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/Beachburg and many trails.

There is netflix (no cable TV) and WiFi. Cell and data service can be poor in certain areas of the home depending on provider. Internet is realiable, I work from home so you can too if need be.

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.  

We have references from past housesitters at your request.
