About Raquel

Hello there!

Thank you for reading my profile and consider me as your future pet sitter.

My name is Raquel, a lively and loving 38 years old woman.Positive, caring and kind, empathic, responsible, honest, super organised and really clean and tidy... my biggest passion in life are animals and nature. Especially dogs and cats, but I also had lovebirds, fishes, hens, ducks and bunnies during my childhood...

I’ve been working professionally as a pet sitter for the past 3 years, so I can assure your pet would be looked after very well! (24/7).

I sat my friend's pets on long holidays for many years before starting to pet sit professionally in 2016. As well as caring for my own 3 rescue cats (they're no longer with me).

I can provide references from current regular clients if needed.

I miss animals in my daily life. Especially dogs and cats, I always had them with me until a few of years ago... I do love their character, personality... I feel connected to them somehow and they are easily comfortable around me.

I have several years of experience feeding, cleaning litters, playing, walking, massaging them :), and basically caring for any pets as if they would be my own. Also, I've looked after many different breeds, sizes, ages, multiple dogs (if well trained) and cats. And all together: a client has 2 cats, 1 dog and 3 chickens. Another regular one has a huge family of 3 dogs, 4 cats, and 1 mouse!

BOARDING service: has its conditions, due to be living in a small studio flat (with carpeted flooring!), without a garden. Therefore, I would only be able to board small quiet dogs, fully house trained. I would walk the dogs several times a day, including at least one 1hr park walk (depending on the dog's needs for running...)

HOUSE-PET SITTING service: I am happy to do most house-pet sittings in London and even surrounding areas. East/North London is especially easy, due to my location in Dalston.

Thank you so much for your interest!

Looking to hear from you and to meet your pet(s) soon.

Kindly,

Raquel

Raquel has been brilliant with both our cats. The little one demands a lot of attention and the cats also play fight a lot at the moment but Raquel dealt with it calmly and expertly. I would definitely recommend her.
