About Rachel

Hi there lovely Owners,

I've been pet sitting since Amsterdam 2014 & full time since October 2019.

I'm a 36 year old Australian woman, animals seem to love me instantly, especially the love and attention i provide them during my stay.

I will treat your cat / dog and home like they are my own - with much love and respect &. I always leave a home clean and tidy for the owners return.

Available for pet sits around Eastern Suburbs & North Shore

I am highly intuitve so can sense immediately if there is anything off with your pet and will take immediate action to ensure they are nurtured if there happens to be any issues that arise.

I just love love love looking after animals - it brings me great joy to offer them my love and care whilst their owners (aka you) are away - knowing that your treasured pet and home are being cared for.

Testimonies:

Emily Sarah and her cat Saffy

I'm delighted to write a few words about Rachel. I've known her for several years, and have trusted her to stay in my home and take care of my cat Saffy on many occasions. She is a considerate, kind and reliable person. She takes care of Saffy with genuine affection and treats her like her own much-loved pet. Saffy loves her too. I'm always so relieved when Rachel can stay when I'm away, as I know she'll treat Saffy wonderfully, but also that she treats my home with lots of care and respect. She always leaves my place very clean and tidy for me. She gets along with my neighbours, and is very considerate. She is practical and sensible with any home/cat issue that may arise. She really is a lovely woman. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who needs a pet cared for and who wants to arrive home to well tended home.

Marcelle and her cat Phoebe

Rachel was recommended by my friend Emily Sarah (please contact me if you would like a verbal reference)

From the moment I met Rachel to show her through my home and introduce her

to my cat, I could feel that I could trust her to take good care of not only

my home, but most importantly, my cat Phoebe.

Phoebe came up to her

straight away and as a typical cat, she can be wary of certain people

however with Rachel, she was begging to be patted straight away.

Whilst I

was away, Rachel put my mind at rest by keeping me up to date with Phoebe's

relaxed demeanour and she also sent me photos to reassure me that all was OK

with Phoebe.

I had left Rachel a few instructions to follow which she

followed with perfection and she also was able to work out everything in my

home without having to contact me and disturb my holiday as she was very

conscious that my time away on holidays should be spent relaxing and not

worrying about a thing - and that is exactly what happened.

When I returned

to my home, it honestly looked exactly as it did when I went away - it was

clean, everything in the exact order that I left it and Phoebe was evidently

very relaxed and happy.

In future, I will check on when Rachel is free to

come and stay before I locked in any future holidays as I know I will have

nothing to worry about whilst she is there, taking care of my cat and my

home.

Zoe and her cat Harvey

It’s my pleasure to highly recommend Rachel for house and pet sitting. The most important thing when it comes to my home and beloved cat is to find someone I can trust to look after them. Rachel goes above and beyond ‘house minding’ to provide genuine care and affection for my home and pet. Rachel treats my place and my cat as if they were her own. so much so, I’m sure are the house was cleaner when I got home than when I left. Rachel is sensitive to the needs of my cat and cares for him with genuine love and affection. When I go away Rachel is the only person I ask. I can’t recommend her highly enough for anyone wanting peace of mind while they’re away from home. Zoe

Michelle and her 4 cats -

Lucky, Roka, Nook Nook and Shelley

You have been a life saver and I cant say thank you enough. Without you being there I am sure my cats would have stressed themselves out boarding at the vets and would have lost quite a bit of weight

Madie and her dog Betty Rozelle, Sydney

Rachel recently sat for us when we went away for a weekend and looked after our pup Betty. Betty can be quite a handful when she wants to be, but she immediately warmed up to Rachel as soon as they met, which made us very comfortable with choosing Rachel to housesit. Rachel was incredibly attentive to detail when we discussed things around the house and how to look after Betty, she is lovely to talk to and was great with Betty. We were sent videos of Betty while we were away which we loved, being able to see her happy while we were away. When we returned, we were greeted with a happy Betty and a lovely clean house, would definitely recommend Rachel for anyone looking for a great, trustworthy house-sitter. Will definitely be asking Rachel to come back next time we go away!

To whom it may concern, Wow! Where do I start? Rachel would be one of the most caring and genuine souls I know. Not only does she have a kind heart and absolutely adores animals.

Absolutely wonderful! Rachel was nothing short of perfect in my recent experience with her house sitting the love bugs as she affectionally referred my furies as. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Hannah, 2019-02-11

Rachel provided 5-star care for our two cats, exceeding all our expectations and going above and beyond during her stay. The peace of mind we received knowing we had someone who loved and cared for our precious Honey & Lemon as much as we do, removed any of the worry we usually have when we board them. She was immensely respectful of our house, as well as our requirements for their daily care, and kept us updated with daily photos and videos. I can not recommend her highly enough, and have already booked her well in advance for our next trip!
