About Rachel
I am a third year veterinary medicine student (1st year DVM) and I love animals of all shapes and sizes!


Experience:

I have worked with cats for over 4 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 confident with pretty much anything you can throw at me. I have done two weeks of house sitting in the past for a lady who owns 3 large border collies (one of which is elderly and needed special care), 9 cats and 4 chickens. I also 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. If you’d like me to visit I can come once or twice a day for however long you’d like (a standard visit is 30 minutes). I am confident with giving medications and can do subcutaneous and intramuscular injections such as insulin. I'm happy to do a free visit before you go away so you can meet me and show me around.

I usually charge roughly $25-40 a day depending on the situation but I'm also happy to discuss it 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 I'm happy to discuss it.

You've succeeded in connecting with a cat who is usually very antisocial to strangers...she was way less vocal about us going away this time, so thank you!
