Reviews of Portsmouth Cat Sitting
I’m always honoured to receive good reviews

Rachel is an A1 cat sitter!
She is kind, competent, professional and reliable.
One of our cats recently had to have a leg removed following a road traffic accident soon before we were due to go on holiday! Not ideal, but Rachel took the news completely in her stride and was very reassuring.
Then once we we were away, the other cat had difficulty breathing in the hot weather and Rachel had to send him to cat hospital!
She kept me fully updated and managed both cats brilliantly while we were away, giving me peace of mind.
When we got home both cats were happy, well and actually pleased to see us!
I highly recommend her. She is a lovely lady and brilliant at her job.

We have been using Portsmouth Cat Sitting for 15 years and have always been very satisfied with the service.
Rachel has dealt marvellously with various medical needs and behavioural issues, and we feel one hundred per cent comfortable leaving Rachel in charge of our cats.
She gives us such peace of mind and it is wonderful to be able to go away and to know that our cats are so well cared for.

There are very few people I trust to look after my fur babies whilst I am away.
Having them booked into Rachel’s care is always a big relief.
She’s taken the time to get to know them as well as offered exceptional care to both a very old cat and a cat with complicated medical needs (both now sadly passed on).
She now offers great care to my two young cats.
No hesitation in recommending her.

Weâ€™d like to say a big thank you to Aunty Rachel for looking after our cats, Lucy and Cleo, when we go away.
They are much happier in their own home than in kennels, and we know the house is visited daily.
We asked our cats about the quality of care provided:
â€œWith Aunty Rachel, I get to sleep in my favourite places, and always get my daily stroke. The other two humans who normally look after me ought to go away more, in my viewâ€ (Lucy)
â€œAunty Rachel is the only other human being in the world I am prepared to tolerate; she lets me make my daily round of the local gardens, but always makes sure Iâ€™m safely home by teatime.” (Cleo)

Rachel was brilliant when my mother was taken to hospital following a fall.
She stepped in immediately to make twice daily calls to care for Mother’s cat, who bonded with Rachel right away.
Rachel really understands cats ( not to mention anxious owners!) and I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Thank you Rachel for giving us peace of mind at a difficult time.
I’ve been leaving my fur babies in the competent hands of Rachel for over ten years now.
I consistently experience her as conscientious, reliable and trustworthy.
Recently we went on holiday, thinking we’d have to cancel last minute but knowing Rachel as we do, I felt sure that my boy Seamus would be fine even though he had just had an acute attack on his kidneys, meaning a hospital stay, and a subsequent push into stage 4 kidney failure.
All this a couple of weeks prior to our departure date. Liaising with the Cat Clinic, Rachel and SCV hospital, Seamus and my two girls were very well taken care of in our absence.
Rachel had carte blanche to decide at any stage according to her expertise as to the welfare of Seamus and what action to take. She was in daily contact with us, Seamus thrived in her care and we felt secure in her enough to enjoy our time away.
Rachel will go the extra mile for your fur babies. We whole heartedly recommend her.

Rachel is such a caring, reliable cat-sitter and genuinely gives love and time to our little fur baby, Boo.
Knowing that Boo is being looked after so lovingly in her own home gives us real peace of mind when we are away.
She has given Boo presents and even left us milk when she knows we wont have any to come back to – that’s typical of her very personal service.
I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Rachel always looks after Tigger and Frodo when we go away. They love her.
Wouldn’t leave them with anyone else as she knows them and they know her.
Very reliable and would highly recommend Portsmouth Cat Sitting

An amazing service by an amazing person.
Rachel looked after Millie from the day we got her to the day she passed away.
We knew we could go away without the stress of cat boxes, cats and kennels. we knew she was happy at home and we had the added bonus of the house being checked.
I cannot recommend Portsmouth Cat Sitting highly enough

Personally tested & approved by BoBo ?
We didn’t use a cat sitter until our lovely Bobo got ill with thyroid issues, then she had to have regular medication. When we went away I wanted to know that someone with experience of cats would be looking after her, because they hide illness or pain so well.
I had already met Rachel elsewhere, so she was an obvious choice and I now know the best choice.
Rachel is fantastic, caring for cats is her passion and not just a job; Bobo loved her to bits & I’m sure Bobo wasn’t happy when we came home sometimes, she’d had so much loving attention from Rachel.
Rachel’s help, advice from her wealth of experience, and in person support was invaluable during those last months of Bobo’s life and I can’t thank her enough for that support.
Consequently we highly recommend Rachel and Portsmouth Cat Sitting without hesitation.

Rachel has cared for my Ruby and Baloo whilst away on our last four holidays.
It is such a comfort knowing that she is coming in daily to look after them and gives great piece of mind.
We can actually go away and relax because she becomes their ‘second mum’ and looks after them as if they were her own.
She is professional, trust worthy and just so kind with the pets in her care. I am so glad we’ve found her as she’s one of a kind.
