What is cat sitting?

Rather than put your cat into a cattery you leave your cat at home in their familiar happy surroundings, then I call in to take care of them. I feed your cat, top up their water, clean the litter tray, administer any medication, and of course give them lots of attention so they're not lonely while you're away. This is much less stressful for them than the cattery, so you come home to a happy healthy cat.

Who is Cat Mom?

I am Angela, a cat-crazy lady who lives in central Edinburgh.

Over the last four decades I have been mom to three cats, two budgies, numerous goldfish and the best dog ever - a springer spaniel called Amber. Until recently I was mom to an 19-year-old torti called Stella, an absolutely adorable old lady cat with hyperthyroidism but plenty of cattitude! I was distraught when I lost Stella, as she was irreplacable, so I am now dog mom to a crazy Dachshund called Frances.

I started Cat Mom in 2018 after struggling to find a reliable cat sitter myself. It's a job I love. I've met so many lovely cat mom's (and da's) and their furry friends - take a look at some of my furry customers on Instagram .

Cannot recommend highly enough. Angela kept my mum's cat fed and happy while my mother was in the hospital & helped us a find a new home for her when it became apparent that my mum could no longer look after her. Very professional & has a clear genuine love for cats... See full review

Angela aka Cat Mom and her assistant Beccy took fantastic care of our elderly cat recently. Very professional service and Puss loves them both. They both understood how concerned I was about leaving him for a week and sent updates daily with photos or videos. Definitely a superior catsitting service. Highly recommended. See full review

Cat Mom looked after our elderly cat recently when we were away for a short break. It was really reassuring to receive daily updates and when we came back it was obvious that our cat had been well cared for. I can confidently recommend Cat Mom. See full review

Angela was an absolutely brilliant Cat Mom! This was the first time I'd left my cat, Bernie, for a long period of time, so I was a little sad to leave her but I couldn't have asked for a better pet-sitter. Angela was incredibly thoughtful and even sent me regular pictures of Bernie, as well as updates... See full review

Absolutely perfect service from Angela (aka the Cat Mom). Really quick to respond to my initial query, great meet and greet before the sitting, and then regular updates while we were away. Came back to a very happy cat that had clearly been really well looked after. Will definitely use again. Highly recommend!
