About me

I know what I look for in a pet sitter, and I strive to provide the same high level of service for my own clients. I am curious and am always working on improving my knowledge, experience, and skills.

I am a member of the professional pet sitter’s association, Pet Sitters International, and have achieved their elite designation of Certified Professional Pet Sitter (CPPS). As of March 14, 2018, I am the only active CPPS in Montreal. I am trained in pet first aid and CPR. I am a Fear Free Certified Professional. I am a member of the International Association of Animal Behavioral Consultants (IAABC) and a member of the National Cat Groomers Institute (NCGI). I attend the annual Pet Sitters World Educational Conference & Expo and have attended Cat Camp NYC, where I was trained in trap-neuter-return in NYC. I am bonded and insured with pet sitting insurance. I have been vaccinated against rabies.

I have been quoted by the Associated Press, which has appeared in the Washington Post, Financial Post, Newsday, and Yahoo, and have been quoted several times in Pet Sitters World, as well as appearing on the cover of Pet Sitters World.

I am professional, mature, responsible, conscientious, experienced, and I love cats, hamsters, and all pocket pets and small caged animals. I love going to agricultural fairs in the summer. I’m a non-smoker. I started pet sitting so that I could be a hands-on mother, and my small child sometimes accompanies me on visits.

I have been a hamster-owner for 25+ years. Despite also having been a cat-owner for 12+ years, there have been no cat-related hamster injuries or fatalities!

I carry high end cat treats in my bag for friendly neighborhood cats. I stop to pet every one that will come to me.

Contact me to check service area (generally, within a 6 km radius of the Outremont metro). I have a car so I can drive to pet visits, and a fancy expensive smartphone that is full of pet pictures, as I give daily reports with pictures.

Rachel Reisner with Jackson Galaxy at Cat Camp NYC 2019

I learned so much at Cat Camp NYC 2019 with so many people who are passionate about cats. “My Cat From Hell’s” Jackson Galaxy “theCatDaddy” (who is very nice and gracious, by the way) even signed my copy of Total Cat Mojo, and I sat in on one of co-author Mikel Delgado’s sessions.
