About Rachel

A graduate with BSc Honours degree in Animal Welfare & Behaviour who has a passion to provide a high level of care to your beloved pets. My employment and volunteer roles as well as my studies has provided me so far with 7 years experience.

I now work full time as a Student Veterinary Nurse in Reading, enjoying the variety of pets that come to visit us. I help the vets from routine checks to running laboratory tests, monitoring anaesthetics and maintaining excellent care in a calm environment. Prior to this I was a Cattery Supervisor in a luxury boarding cattery and small animal hotel, providing a high quality service adhering to the welfare needs of all pets from cats to chickens to rabbits, rats and geckos.

I also volunteered at Cats Protection to Trap, Neuter and release feral cats to reduce the number of unwanted cats and the spread of disease.

At the U.K. Wolf Conservation Trust as an assistant wolf handler, I handle wolves to aim to raise awareness of conservation efforts, wolf behaviour and support conservation projects. I also wrote a quarterly article in Wolf Print magazine giving insight to the benefits of varied enrichment techniques and explaining observed behaviours.

My varied experience will provide peace of mind to owners whilst away from home either for business or pleasure.

House Sitting
Nikki, 2019-08-29

We needed someone to take care of our house cat whilst we were away for a couple of days getting married. With everyone that would usually cat sit for us being as the wedding we were a little nervous about who would be taking care of our fur baby. Rachel was fantastic from the moment we met her. She was quick to respond to my messages and put our minds at complete ease after meeting her. She left the house spotless and we came home to a very chilled out, happy kitty! We would highly recommend her services!

Rachel is one of a kind! When it comes to trust your pet to someone, you always want to make sure you make the right choice and she definitely comes through! She treats my best friend as if she is part of the family and you can tell that by how happy my cat was when I came back. She is very professional, caring and she understands how important a pet is to you. I cannot thank her enough, and I will use her services every time I can. Thank you Rachel!
