Rachele has been taking care of my pets for about 4 years now. She i s very reliable, and I can enjoy my time away without worrying about my pets because I know Rachel is coming by to check up on them, feed them and spend some time with them. I have often come home to find that she has done other little extras that I didn't even ask her if she could them. On various times shes brought my garbage cans in from street because I had to leave town before the city came by to pick up the recycle and garbage cans, or on really hot days she will water potted plants, or she will wash some dishes that I left in the sink cuz I was in a rush; she is awesome, and my pets and I liked her immediately the moment we met her. And I love how you can check in your pets on her blog becauae she posts photos of your pets on her blog every day that she comes to feed them. It's very comforting to see photos of your pets each night after she has checked on them. If you are hesitant about leaving your pets with a pet sitter, call Rachele first!
