Buckstone Pet Sitter came into being through a lifelong love of animals. It has operated as a small pet sitting service covering the pet sitting needs of those living in Edinburgh South since 2015. Due to a desire to provide quality pet sitting care for every client at any time of year, Buckstone Pet Sitter can guarantee cover 365 days per year, even at short notice. Buckstone Catsitter is 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 for 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 want you to feel relaxed that you are dealing with professionals who take the utmost care.
