I am a fifth year veterinary medicine student (third year DVM) and I love animals of all shapes and sizes!
I have worked with cats for over 6 years and have three of my own. I also used to own rats, guinea pigs, mice and fish. My speciality is cats but I am open to almost anything you can throw at me (although, I wouldn't recommend throwing your pets at me...) I do a lot of volunteer work in cat rescue - feeding and trapping stray cats, organising desexing and vet visits, fostering, socialising and rehoming. I am also qualified in pet first aid.
What I Do:
I do house sitting as well as just visits at varying prices. I am confident giving medications and can do subcutaneous and intramuscular injections such as insulin in special cases. I'm happy to do a free visit before you go away so you can meet me and show me around.
I usually charge around $25-40 a day depending on the situation but I'm also happy to discuss this with you.
I pet sit on the upper North Shore (roughly Hornsby to Chatswood) and may do cheaper prices for very close homes (North Turramurra area) but can be flexible for a slightly higher rate. If you have any questions or aren't sure, just send me a message and we can have a chat.

Second time having Rachel cat sit for us, we couldn’t be happier with her service. She’s easy to communicate with and the care she provides our cats leaves us able to relax while away. Highly recommend her. …
