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.

Nick handled Stanley really well and was easy going and reliable. I’ll be using him again.

Nik looked after our two cats over Christmas and New Year. He communicated all times of visiting beforehand, and sent pictures via the Pawshake app when he visited. One cat of ours is usually afraid of new people, but we could tell that Nik was great with him, because V was always close by in the photographs! You know when you can tell that a person is just naturally good with animals, because your cats instantly like them? We left a few notes about feeding, and Nik clarified them when he picked up the keys, which really put us at ease that he knew the plan. We'll definitely book Nik again!
