My name is Craig, I live in East Kilbride with my wife, our 8 year old son, and our cats Fudge and Frankie. I grew up with a dog (named Bitz) and we’ve had Fudge since 2004 with Frankie following after in 2005. As well as looking after our cats, I will often walk or sit for our friends dogs, all of which are staffie mixes and belong to the owners of the gym I attend.
I offer pet sitting for cats, dogs and other pets as well as dog walking. I will feed your pets, clean litter trays and cages, and send you pictures of your to reassure you that they are happy and health. I have always been good with animals, enjoy spending time with them, and I will care for yours like they are my own.
I am available most hours of the day. Unfortunately, Fudge and Frankie don’t handle visitors too well so I would only be able to look after your pets in their own home. I would also recommend that I meet your pet prior to sitting for them.
Walks would be for at least an hour (but probably longer) at a place With lots of room to run around such as Calderglen Country Park - provided you are comfortable with them being let off the leash.
For the time being I am only available to work within East Kilbride.
Craig was fantastic with my cat. She is very shy but requires twice daily medications, and Craig was extremely helpful and determined to build a relationship with her so that she’d trust him and take her medicine from him.
Craig went to various lengths to ensure my cat felt comfortable and felt safe, as well as me feeling reassured the whole time I was on holiday that my cat was in the best hands.
I was also kept updated with regular photos of my cat, which was a nice wee perk!
I will definitely use Craig’s services again for my future holidays.
Craig was amazing!!! He came over the week that we started our holiday for a meet & greet with our two cats, Ramses and Katie, so that he was still fresh in their memories when we left. I was worried about Ramses, because although he had been with me since he was a kitten (he is going on 11 years old), we had never been apart for more than 1 week and our trip was for two; the last time we had someone watch Ramses, he hid under the tub and only came out to eat when they weren't there. My baby was so upset at me for leaving him for that long and he let me know it:( This time around was completely different. Craig said that he would message me and send videos of Ramses and Katie - true to his word, my husband and I got to witness Ramses' transformation from a crotchety hermit under the bath to a happy camper, hanging out in various areas of the flat and adoring the attention that he was getting from his new human pal. The pictures, messages, and videos were wonderful to see while we were away and gave us peace of mind that both Katie and Ramses were being well taken care of. Craig was extremely easy to reach and responded promptly to all messages, which is very important to a cat mom like me who needs to be reassured that her babies are okay. Professional, friendly, and understands cats. We highly recommend him and will definitely be using him again when we go on holiday.
