My name is El-Jay and I am a Masters student who has lived their entire life in Edinburgh. I have always loved animals and have had a very large number of pets over the years including: a beautiful retriever called Rudy, two cats, Guinea pigs, amphibians, hamsters, and rabbits. Currently I am the very happy owner of five beautiful and friendly rats, as well as a large tank that features several fish and two lovely terrapins
My mother is the Manager of three veterinary practices across Edinburgh and as a result I have been exposed to many animals over the years and had the privilege of rehabilitating some of the more difficult cases. My personal favourite was a black bird that we raised from a small chick and released back into the wild. I was the owner of an incredible flat-coated retriever called Rudy but unfortunately he died in February at the age of 9 from cancer.
I can offer both services in your home or at my own home, whatever suits you best. In my home I have my current pets so any animals that stay with me will have to be okay with other animals or kept in a cage. I love going on long walks and I also have a car (covered by business insurance) that I can fit two large dogs in and I would be happy to drive dogs to the beach, lakes or the forest for extra adventurous walks. I live very close to the meadows and Morningside so love to walk animals around these areas. I love training animals (my rats can perform several tricks and are harness trained) and am happy to continue training with any animals in my care. For animals staying in my own home, I live with my partner and three friends all of whom love animals entirely. We have a large back garden for animals as well. The room my partner and I share is very large and we have our own living room section of it, this is where any animals will stay so that they can be comforted if necessary (we also have another kitchen and livingroom if you would prefer your animal housed separately). I enjoy fostering relationships with both the animals and families I work for, and love to send pictures and updates of what we get up too. I know it can be stressful to leave your animals with someone you don’t know and I hope to make this process as easy and stress free as possible. If you have any questions whatsoever just let me know.
I hope to hear from you,
El-jay and her roommates were fabulous with our two small dogs. We were nervous to leave them but El-jay sent us updates and pictures about how they were doing. I know that our dogs got lots of love, attention, and walks. We will be using her again!
El Jay was helpful and informative and kept me updated of my dog during his stay
I have owned exotic pets and am currently the owner of two terrapins that require specific treatment. I am no stranger to difficult pets and am happy to look after exotic animals and feed them foods that others may not be used too (such as frozen rodents or live insects).
My mother is a the manager of three veryerinary practices.
I have a car that is covered for business insurance which can be used to transport animals.
I have a DBS check.
