About Rachel

Hello! My name is Rachel, and I’ve been an animal lover and owner all of my life.

I’m from Wales originally but have been in Belgium for 20 years. For all of this time I’ve shared my life with many animals, particularly cats, every single one of which has been adopted.

I’ve rescued street cats, found homes for many more, run marathons in support of animal charities, volunteered for rescue charities, rescued dogs in Mexico, and taken rescue dogs for regular walks from their shelters in Belgium.

I am a vegetarian and a supporter of many animal charities. I come from the countryside and animals of all descriptions have always been part of my life.

I live with my two girls and we have a beautiful black cat, Sid, who we rescued from the street. We also have three gorgeous guinea pigs, Midnight, Seren and Silkie. As you can see, we adore animals, and for me, a house is not a home without one!

I would love to care for your pets while you’re away, I have looked after friends cats, rats, rabbits, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs and even horses!

I will keep you in touch while you’re away, by sending you regular photos.

I will ensure that they have everything they need so that you have peace of mind to enjoy your holidays.

Rachel took very good care of our cat over an extended period of time. She even went out of her way once she noticed our cat had an eye infection, brought our cat to the vet and applied the drops better than we could have done. She also sent us regular pictures and updates. Very caring pet-sitter. We will definitely ask her to take care of Kingston again and would recommend her 100%

It was the very first time that I left my cat alone for about 10 days and when I came back she was perfectly fine, in great shape, good mood, wanting to play and begging for cuddles :) Rachel sent updates about Ale, as well as photos, nearly every day.  It has been an extremely reassuring experience having her take care of Ale, whom I also left a bit sick and anxious, for which I grant Rachel greater merit,  professionalism and kidness towards my cat.   I will definitely count on her for future trips or absences. Thanks!
