About Rachel

Local to Meadowbank, and happy to look after other local pets.Experienced in cat sitting. I'll take care of your cat in your own home.

Following your own instructions, to keep your trip stress free for your cat. During my visit, I'll clean and refill food and water bowls, check, empty and change the litter tray and spend a little time with your cat to keep them happy.

I love Pawshake as I can send you updates and photos during your trip, so you can fully relax.

Whilst my experience is in cat sitting I have owned small animals myself (hamsters/rabbits/adopted cats) and will follow the same routine with any small home pet. I do work full time so keep my visits local to Meadowbank before 8.30am and after 5pm, perfect for your pets breakfast and supper routines. My family pet is a lively Labradwarf (lab cross staff) a bouncy, and adventurous 10 year old. I just love taking him for long walks, especially at the beach.

My first ever paid job was as a cat sitter, looking after cats and small pets within their own home whilst their owners were away. It's a great way for me to get the benefits of pet ownership whilst I don't have my own.

Other things you might like to know. I'm a girl guide leader, and Secretary for Leith Scottish Women's Institute. I'm an injured roller derby player who now walks for exercise. I really enjoy walking around the coast and around Arthur's Seat.

We wholeheartedly recommend Rachel. Really quick to respond to my initial query, great meet and greet beforehand, and then a few nice updates while we were away. Our cat has very specific food/medication requirements and Rachel followed it perfectly, taking care to make sure she knew her routine and likes before we left for our trip. Came back to a happy content cat. Will definitely use again.

Rachel did a perfect job of looking after our two cats while we were away. As well as feeding them, she also took time to play with them and make sure they had a bit of human company. I also really appreciated getting updates from her after each visit, too. Many thanks!
