I'm Rachel, a journalist and pet lover located in the Yonge & Lawrence area with experience pet sitting cats. 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 cat foster mom.
I currently live with my furry roommate, Mr. Merv Griffin, a 17-year-old fluffy feline with special needs. A senior cat with chronic kidney disease, I follow a strict veterinarian diet with daily medication for his health 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 subcutaeous 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 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 access to 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.
I have a vehicle and am available to service areas north of St. Clair, east of Dufferin, west of the DVP and south of Finch. If you are outside this area, please contact for availability.
This was my first time using Rachel to look after our cat Chloe.
She was the perfect choice.
Chloe went to her right away.
Rachel kept in touch with us with photos and texts everyday.
Rachel is very sweet and has a great love for animals.
I highly recommend Rachel and will get her to take care of our
precious Chloe next time we travel.
Rachel has a great calm confident approach. Would definitely use again!
