About Rachel

I am a registered veterinary nurse located in Cross Gates. I am crazy about animals and I currently have 15 rescue cats and volunteer at a cat rescue and sanctuary where I help care for 30+ cats.

Over the past 30 years I have had the pleasure of living with a menagerie of rescue animals including rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, degus, hedgehogs and budgies.

I will do everything I can to make your time away from home as stress free as possible for yourself and your beloved pets. I will care for your treasured dog/cat as if they were my own and spend time getting to know their personalities. I understand that all animals are different and when and how they interact with me will be down to them. If they love cuddles and/or want to play I will happily oblige. If they are more independent or less comfortable with strangers I will not overstep their boundaries.

I am happy to visit once or twice a day according to requirements. Visits can include feeding, litter change, TLC, play and medication administration. Walks can be 30 or 60 minutes. These will be single dog walks unless you have multiple dogs in your family. This will ensure I can provide your dog(s) with 100% of my attention.

I am happy to care for other small furry animals including rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and gerbils.

I am confident administrating medication, clipping nails and basic grooming.

Happy to discuss any specific needs, please contact me to discuss :-)

I can provide daily updates and photos while you are away so you can rest assured your kitty, pup or small furry is getting the care they deserve.

Rachel did a wonderful job of looking after my kitten Stanley for a week while I was on holiday. She visited him twice a day; fed him and changed the litter as well as giving lots of cuddles and having a play. She updated me with plenty of pictures and videos. Thank you Rachel! I would definitely book again☺️🐾

Rachel was fantastic. She knew how to deal with my cat and is clearly a big cat lover. My cat is very timid and scared of strangers, but she bonded with Rachel after about only 3 days. I will not hesitate to book her again in the future.
