I'm Rachel, a journalist and pet lover located in the Yonge & Lawrence area with experience pet sitting cats. I am fully vaccinated as of June 2021. My aim is to make your time away from home as stress-free as possible knowing your cat in the right hands!
A lifelong cat lover and pet owner, I understand how important it is to find someone trustworthy and reliable that both you and your cat will like! I have experience with cats ranging from kitten to senior, as well as rescued cats and have been a foster cat mom.
I currently live with my furry roommate, Finnegan, a former street cat whom I adopted from the Etobicoke Humane Society in 2021 following the death of Mr. Merv Griffin, a 17-year-old fluffy feline with special needs.
I have experience with feline chronic kidney disease, strict veterinarian diet, daily medication, and health issues and know the importance of maintaining consistency when it comes to caring for your cat.
I have experience giving medication to cats including drops and pills, special diets and can administer subcutaneous fluids. There is no extra charge to administer basic medications, however if you have an elaborate regimen or an extremely fussy feline, we can discuss treatment plans and additional fees on a per-case basis.
Services are available Monday to Friday evenings and most weekends and holidays.
I offer daily 45-60 minute drop-in visits which include:
-feeding/water refill and washing food dishes
- litter box cleaning/changing
- cleaning up after your pet(s)
- administering basic medications (ex. In-food/treat drops or pills)
- daily update on your pet
- basic household care (checking mail, watering plants)
For an additional fee, visits can be extended for multi-cat (more than 3) households, additional small pets, or shy pets who need a little extra time and love.
Accidents and emergencies can happen- know that I have a vehicle and have the knowledge and experience to make sure your kitty is taken care of in the unlikely chance an emergency situation arises.
Overnight visits/house sitting also available on a per-case basis, as is veterinary drop off and pick up.
My main areas I service are Finch to Dufferin to St. Clair to Don Mills. Please contact me if you are outside this area.
**flexible cancellation during pandemic with full refund if cancelled before noon the day before the start date**
Our cat Duncan is normally pretty shy with strangers but he approached Rachel the first time she came by to meet him! Rachel kept in touch with us while we were away, and sent us lots of details on how Duncan was doing, how much he ate, etc. and sent lots of great photos too. We felt reassured that Duncan was well looked after by Rachel during their visits. Rachel was super easy to work with, very kind and easy going and we would highly recommend her!
Rachel get alone with the kittens very well. She is reliable and attentive. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who need the cat sitting service!
