About Rebecca

Hello,

thank you very much for considering me to look after your valued pet and friend.

I offer a premium service that ensures your pet feels safe, loved and happy.

Services offered:

I am very happy to look after cats both in the comfort of your own home or in my spacious, large flat. I live in a large, 3 bedroom flat with a friend and 2 adorable cats: Aslan and Caspian. I live right near Comely Bank; near Inverleith Park; a wonderful green expanse to walk dogs and puppies alike.

I offer day visits and home boarding; either in my flat or yours. Home boarding in my flat is 24 hours. Home boarding in your flat is 8pm until 7am. Other times can be accommodated but are chargeable as an extra day visit.

My care can be tailored to suit your needs and special requests, including medication, can be accommodated.

Unfortunately, the flat is not suitable to host dogs overnight, because Caspian is such a young kitten, although I am more than happy to travel to you to offer this service.

I am happy to pick up and drop off your pets for no extra charge.

Just a note that I am not experienced with very large or very hyperactive dogs, sorry.

I am a professional working for a charity in Portobello; my hours are full time but flexible so I can accommodate most requests that are time sensitive.

I am experienced with anti social or traumatized animals and aim to be a reassuring, comforting and calming presence to pets such as these. I am pet first aid and CPR trained so you can be assured that your loved pet is in good hands.

A little about me

I have gained a lot of my experience with cats and kittens from living in India where I ran a shelter for abandoned cats in my spare time. I looked after a range of residents from new born kittens to injured and elderly cats. I am experienced living with and looking after cats, rabbits, dogs, guinea pigs, turtles, tortoises, mice, hamsters, fish, hedgehogs, and birds. I genuinely love working with animals and understand how frustratingit can be to find someone reliable to look after something so valuable to you. I will offer a reliable, professional, caring and prompt service to suit your needs.

I am DBS checked.

The pictures below show my flat, some of the cats and kittens I have looked after and Sweep, one of my current cats ( now living with my sister), seated in my white storage basket!

My current kitties, Aslan and Caspian, are the ginger (Aslan) and black kitten (Caspian).

Thanks for looking at my profile and I look forward to hearing from you.

Robert, 2019-11-01

Rebecca was absolutely fantastic with our two rabbits while we were away for 5 days. She followed our instructions to the letter and the boys seemed to really take to her after just one visit. She was quick to respond and easy to get hold of when necessary. We would readily book her again in the future!

House Sitting
Soshi, 2019-10-31

Rebecca went above and beyond when looking after my cat Coco. I came home to a very happy and well looked after cat after a 4 night break away. I would recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for a trustworthy, reliable, kind pet carer who is clearly experienced in all things cat. I received regular updates/pics of Coco whilst away and I was completely at ease knowing that Coco was in her care.
