About Rea

Hi there 👋 I have recently moved to Belfast to pursue my PhD at Queen's. I am right in the centre of town and am happy to walk anywhere with easy access to public transport (unfortunately due to commission and bus costs I may charge extra to cover travel costs).

I am only available for drop in visits (companionship, feeding & walking (£13 x1 visit, £18 for x2 visits)), and overnight sittings (£40 per night) providing you are nearby to the university. Unfortunately, I am unable to keep animals in my own place as my apartment has a strict no pet policy (for now). I have much more flexibility at the weekends, but morning and evening pop ins are no problem during the week.

For home visits, I will stay a minimum of 30 minutes sometimes longer depending on your pet. For me, it is not just about making sure they have food and water. Animals are social creatures and need the company and some play time, which I am more than happy to oblige.

As for my personal experience, I have been offering my services as a pet sitter/dog walker for several years now. Beginning while I was studying in the UK but this really took off when I moved to NL where I did this part time during my studies and then became full time after I graduated.

My love of animals is something that drives me daily, especially within my studies. And I have spent the majority of my life surrounding myself with animals of all kinds. As for how I work, I will always request a meet and greet before taking care of your beloved animals, and while you are away I make sure to keep you updated and send pictures to give you peace of mind. I know how it feels to leave your beloved animals behind, so I am here to ease this process for you.

If you have any further questions for me, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you :)

Rea is brilliant! Lovely to deal with and my cat Bella loves her - takes all the anxiety out of going away!

Rea looked after our two cats while we were away, and we were so happy with her care. Our cat Bramble is known for running and hiding any time a stranger enters the house, but she didn't do this with Rea, which tells me that the animals trust her.

Will 100% be rebooking Rea if we require visits in the future 😊
