Hi! My name is Rachael, and I'm a lover of all animals—big, small, wild and tamed. Being a pet sitter and dog walker makes sense for me, as I am happiest when looking after animals. I love being in nature, getting fresh air, and running or walking with friend's dogs. I am physically fit and able to go on long walks/runs with large, energetic dogs; and of course am able to go on shorter walks with smaller/older dogs.
I am also happy just chilling and cuddling, especially with smaller pets (like cats, bunnies, and small dogs). However, I know how important playtime is—especially for indoor pets, and can easily while away the time throwing toys around or having cats chase bits of string.
I have my own gorgeous rescue cat (Gordie) and did have one beautiful bunny (Nipsy), who recently passed away of old-age after being in the family for five years. I was heartbroken to say the least. Gordie is a 'rescue' cat in every sense of the term. I found her as a tiny kitten on the side of a backcountry road, unable to use her hind legs. After a vet visit, it was discerned she was not a boy (as I mistakenly assumed, hence the name) and her back legs and one hip were broken. Several surgeries later and plenty of TLC in between, and she is now a fully functioning, happy and healthy (and very spoiled) indoor kitty. I know each and every pet is unique with their own special personality, and understand that each will have their own specific needs to be addressed.
Rest assured, if you leave your precious family member with me while you're away, it will not only be cared for, it will be loved :)
Rachael took great care of my cat Maisie and kept me updated about her. I would highly recommend!
Rachael was reliable, professional, caring and truly wonderful with our dog. She looked after Buddy so well and was genuinely caring for him and looking after him, not just taking a booking for quick cash. I highly recommended Rachael to anyone that wants their pets cared for. She is excellent!
