About Niamh

Hi, I'm Niamh and I'm a veterinary student at the University of Edinburgh so it would be right to say I get along very well with animals! Before vet school I undertook a wide range of animal husbandy work experiences which included volunteering at Sunny Harbour Cat and Kitten Rescue Centre in Fife every Saturday for just over as year and a half, working at a kennels in Kelty, Fife for two weeks for a work experience then the ocassional days after when they needed extra staff. At both places I prepared food, filled up water bowls, dispensed medicine and for the cats I cleaned the littter trays took the dogs out on walks twice a day. I took time out of general chores to provide enrichment for the cats by usuing different toys, scratch posts and just spending quality time with them. At the kennels as well as talking the dogs for walks, i checked up on them regulary to make sure they were doing well and in a comfortable state.

Since starting vet school I have taken specific practical and lecture classes on dog and cat husbandry to further my knowledge in correctly caring for cats and dogs so I believe that because of all this by pet sitting I can provide a great service for your pet(s)! I am able to follow instructions on feeding/drinking schedules, cleaning litter trays, letting dogs out to relieve themselves and disposing of their waste. During my stay I would just be studying with my laptop or booklets but if you have pets which require a more alert/constant care then please just specify and I will not bring my books with me.

I'm enthusiatic, friendly and hard-working so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Niamh looked after our big ginger cat, Amber, while we were away, doing two home visits a day. She was extremely conscious throughout and keen to keep to a timetable for visits and feeding that would not disrupt our cat’s normal schedule; throughout it was clear that her training as a vet means that we could 100% trust her with Amber. She was also very clear and regular with communications throughout and could not have been more professional. We will definitely be booking Niamh’s services again in future.

Highly recommend! Animals took to Niamh right away, felt completely comfortable leaving them and house to her overnight. Will definitely use her services again.
