About Nik

From day one I've been surronded by pets. At a certain point in life, there were as many as seven cats, one dog and a tortoise all living happily together in a garden flat. I currently live in the West End with one young and playful feline.

I also have an experience working in a pet shop for almost a year where I was looking after guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, fish, and cats on rarer occasions.

I consider myself to be an attentive and caring pet lover who is able to understand animals' needs quite well, and a responsible & trustworthy person - feel free to read the reviews other clients have posted on my profile.

Being a part-time postgraduate student who works from home on a flexible basis leaves me with plenty of free time (please refer to the calendar). I am happy to do sitting, be it short visits or a more prolonged stays, walk your dog, and stay with your pet overnight if required.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you live in Edinburgh and require a sitter. I'm happy to come and meet you and your furry friend so you we can get introduced to each other before you make a reservation. Any questions, I'm here to answer - look forward to hearing from you.

I would highly commend Nik! He did a brilliant job of looking after my two cats, Reilly and Zoey, when I had to be away for ten days this past week. He sent me updates with photos each time he visited them (twice a day) and he clearly bonded with them - he played with them, cuddled them and showed concern when Reilly seemed to be eating less for a few days (Reilly has IBD). I will definitely be rebooking with Nik as I know Reilly and Zoey will miss his great company and will be very glad to see him again!!
