About Irina

Hello! My name is Irina, I'm a part-time student and art enthusiast. I grew up with multiple pets, from cats and dogs to chinchillas and parrots. Since moving to Scotland, I've missed being surrounded by animals so pet sitting is an excellent way to make some new furry friends! I'm trying to start my own dog walking/pet sitting company after gaining comprehensive experience running an unofficial cat shelter with over 30 cats at a time, a dog obedience training programme, as well was volunteering at a dog shelter in Stirling. Most cats at the shelter were feral, orphan newborns or elder cats with disabilities so they all had different behaviours and needs. At the shelter in Stirling I dealt mostly with lovely Staffies, taking them for a walk and making sure they have been given positive training and treats! I have an extremely social cat, he was found as a stray by my friend and I 6 years ago. He is very friendly and curious with all animals. Looking forward to meet all of you!

Irina is an amazing cat sitter.She replied to our messages very quickly.She has a natural rapport with cats, they like her a lot.One of our cats is very timid but she allowed Irina to pet her.I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Irina took excellent care of my elderly cats, they were happy and well when we returned and we had lots of updates and photos throughout our holiday which was reassuring. Irina is highly recommended by us and we will look to book her again next time we are going away. Great communication, conscientious, great petsitter.
