Canadian moving to Ecuador in January 2013

I am a 51 year old married Canadian female who will be moving to Ecuador in January 2013. My Chilean husband will eventually join me as soon as I find out where I want to live exactly!
I am planning to take my 4 cats with me and am looking for information. Will probably arrive in Quito - need a hotel for 1-3 nights that will allow my cats. From there, I am planning to move around but would like to "settle" - have a base maybe in Cotacachi - which is an area that interests me a lot. Am looking for a cheap furnished place for me and my cats - does anyone have any information?
I've read that it's fairly easy to come into Ecuador with pets, just need current vaccinations and health certificate - has anyone entered Ecuador recently with either cats or dogs?
Also, I need to find someone that would be willing to visit my cats - play with them, feed them and scoop the poop on a daily basis - for about 1-2 hours a day. I am willing to pay for that service as long as I can find someone that is responsible. This would be for a period of 2 weeks only - so it's not a long term committment.
If anyone can offer recommendations for housing and for a catsitter, it would be greatly appreciated!
