About Rachel

*Please note: I am more suited for cat sitting due to working full time*

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 10 years experience.

As a full time Veterinary Nurse working in Wokingham, I enjoy the variety of pets that come to visit us.

To give peace of mind, I am fully vaccinated against covid.

If you book one visit per day please let me know if you would prefer a visit in the morning or the evening.

If you book two visits a day an early morning visit will be between 6am and 9am and evening visits will be between 5pm and 8pm, dependant on my rota.

During my time in your home I can water any plants, open/close curtains, turn lights on/off and put out the rubbish.

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.

Thanks for looking after Alfie, he was very relaxed when I came home - it’s so nice to know he is in good hands when I leave him in your care!

Rachel is a wonderful cat sitter and I feel very lucky to have found her. I have absolute confidence that Leela will be well cared for while I am away. Rachel was also very happy to feed our visiting hedgehogs and foxes! Highly recommended.
