Buckstone Cat Sitter covers all small animals (not just cats!) and came into being through a lifelong love of animals. It has operated as a small pet sitting service covering the needs of animals in Edinburgh South since 2015. We are a small family run business and due to a desire to provide quality pet sitting care for every client at all times of year we guarantee cover for clients at short notice. We are fully Disclosure checked and insured with Pet Business Insurance.
Our philosophy is that pets are happier and more relaxed if they can stay in their own homes when their owners are away. Each pet we look after is treated like our own and given lots of fuss and attention. We don't only look after cats, but also other types of animals including rabbits, fish, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, mice and birds.
A visit lasts around 15 -20 minutes and includes feeding, changing water bowls, daily clean of litter tray, playing with your pet and plenty of cuddles and attention. We will deal with emergencies as they arise. A care sheet is left at the end of each visit to let you know how your cat was, we can also water plants and take out bins at no extra charge but please remember to ask us if you'd like this as part of your service.
We take the safety of your pets and property very seriously and we want you to feel relaxed that you are dealing with caring, reliable, professionals.
