Don’t take my word for it! Here you can read some of the nice things previous customers have had to say…

Chris has been an absolute star taking care of my two beloved 12 year old babies, Honey and Poppy. Whilst I didn’t actually get to meet Chris in person as he was recommended to me by another brilliant catsitter, and took over the job of taking care the kitties to cover the days that she wasn’t available to cover, I was quickly relieved of any initial concerns of worrying about how he might be able to handle the situation. Chris was fully engaged in all the communications and proceedings from the start to the end, and beyond. Both cats have complex medical needs, Honey’s are more challenging, requiring a specific type of care, equaling to vet nurse treatment, which is not for the faint hearted. Chris didn’t bat an eyelid at this at all, and took superb care of both of them. On top of that, Chris provided a detailed update after each visit, accompanied by the most beautiful photos of my furbabies. You are an amazing cat dad/mum/nanny anyone can ask for :). I am so grateful for your help, Chris! Thank you! xxx

This was the 1st time I had used Chris to look after Daisy. I had seen his posts on Facebook and thought they were fun and caring. I wasn’t wrong. From the moment Chris came to collect my key and meet Daisy I was impressed. He listened intently to all I said and asked very thoughtful questions that I hadn’t covered. He obviously has lots of experience. Once Chris was in charge I got daily messages on how his friendship with Daisy was progressing and what she had eaten etc. Daisy is always a scaredy cat buy Chris persevered. The photos he sent (of which there were many)went from her hiding under the bed on day 1 to laying relaxed with her toys by the end of the week. It amused and reassured me whilst I was away that Daisy was having a good time too. Will definitely be using Chris again. A good excuse to go away more often so she doesn’t forget who he is. 😁🐾

Literally the best catsitting service we’ve ever had in the UK! We’ve had over 15 cat sitters take care of our 2 kitties, and no one has hit the spot like Chris has. This guy is insured, super professional, and really dedicated! He sent thorough updates with some amazing photos he took (better than the ones we’ve taken of our cats!) and played with them each time, something that all promise but many don’t do. How do I know this is the best cat sitting ever? Because we came home to the happiest, most loved-up kitties in the world. They were so affectionate, playful and just plain happy, with everything tidy and ready – something he didn’t have to do but was really appreciated. If you want to leave your cats with someone you can actually trust, and who will genuinely give your cats some love – don’t hesitate and contact Chris today!

Chris looked after our cats for around two weeks. We were initially worried about how they would cope with us being away for the first time. My mind was put at ease during the first meeting when both warmed to Chris quite quickly. Chris made sure to ask about their feeding and playing preferences etc so as not to disrupt their daily routine too much. While we were away, Chris kept me fully up to date and also sent over lots of great photos. Our cats didn’t seem to be fazed by the change at all and that can only be down to Chris being a fantastic cat sitter who kept them well fed and entertained. I returned home to two content cats and the flat was also clean and tidy. I definitely recommend Chris’s services – in fact, we’ve already made another booking!

Just got back from holiday and first time using Chris. He has been absolutely terrific. Arriving each day and Sharing photos of our cat lily who obviously has been getting spoilt by Chris. Can’t rate him highly enough and will be using him from now on and told him to keep our house key for future use.
Jerry D
We are really happy with Chris’ cat sitting but more importantly, our cats seem to love him. They thrived in his care and we came home to happy, contented cats. We appreciated the regular updates and the pictures and that we could absolutely trust him with our animals and our home. Lynne and Ros

Chris has now looked after my 2 cats, twice and both times I have been beyond impressed, he is professional, reliable and always keeps in contact. The cats are happy when we get back, well fed and just genuinely chilled out and content. Chris also takes the most brilliant photos and gives updates every day, so you will never feel stressed or worried – just know that the cats are being really well cared for and looked after – you can tell he’s a real cat lover too. I really can’t recommend him enough, if you’re looking for a cat sitter Chris is your person – don’t look elsewhere.

I was nervous about leaving my 7 month old kitten alone for a few days because of a family emergency but when I met Chris all worries were gone instantly as he was so professional asking about my preferences and things to consider – and really sweet when introducing himself to my cat. He’s been super reliable and took his time for 2 daily visits and was very responsive to provide detailed updates every day. When I came back home everything was really nice and tidy and kitty did not seem to be too upset with me as I could tell she certainly had satisfying playtimes with Chris.
Laura B
Chris is a brilliant Catsitter – extremely professional and considerate, and clearly cares about our pets. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
Jo R
Excellent care gave me fantastic peace of mind.
Christine M
We are so grateful to Chris for his help. He is quick to respond and sent lovely updates of his visits, with gorgeous pictures of our cat. We would recommend My Cat Sitter to anyone looking for a reliable and professional sitter, and we will definitely use him again!
Mary G
Chris was brilliant and so accommodating with changes to days during the sitting. Cats were definitely well looked after and it didn’t take them long to forgive me for my absence, so I can tell Chris did a good job of keeping them entertained and fed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend My Cat Sitter.
Verity T
Chris is just the perfect cat sitter. Very nice, flexible. I made a lot of last minute changes and he was always happy to help and did a great job with my cat. The house was just as I left it 🙂 He even picked my mail and watered my plants! Most important my cat loved him and seemed very happy when we get home. Big plus as well the update every day with plenty of amazing photos! We will surely use his service again next time we go away! 🙂
Charlotte R
Chris has looked after our cat a few times now and he’s been great. Sends lots of friendly updates and fantastic pictures while we’re away, our cat is clearly very happy in his company! He’s obviously a cat lover himself and spends time playing with our cat on his visits, which she loves! We would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a cat sitter.
Rebecca G
Chris communicated well and sent lots of great photos. He was polite, professional and reliable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
James J
Chris has looked after our cat a few times now. He was very quick at responding and easy to contact, and took excellent care of our cat while we were away, and kept our kitchen tidy. He sent us lots of pictures (he got better ones than I ever can!) and even took out bin out for us. We will definitely be booking Chris again!
Sharon J
Chris was absolutely brilliant. Stepped in last minute and was super quick in getting back in touch after I made the first enquiry, it only took a few messages to arrange the initial visit. I was trying to explain to Chris every little detail about looking after our crazy cat Thor but he seemed to know exactly what was needed/expected which gave me confidence before settling the deal. Chris kept us updated throughout with messages and pictures which was great for our peace of minds. I’d definitely recommend Chris and I’ll be booking him to look after Thor next time we’re away 😉 Thank you again Chris.
Eva G
It’s so lovely to be able to rely on a genuine trustworthy cat lover to take care of my cats if I go away. I no longer have the dread of asking friends for the favour and relying on availability and generosity. He also left everything washed and clean it was lovely to come home to.
Clementine R
Chris has been a wonderful Cat Sitter for our 3 Felines, we just returned from our holidays and found the cats in perfect condition, and the flat too. He was extremely kind updating us with pictures every day. We will certainly have Chris come back again next time we go away.
Uli E
Chris is a friendly, reliable and very trustworthy catsitter. He is very quick to reply to queries and is very flexible with any short term changes. He also updates you with photos of your cat when you are away. I have used other cat sitters in the past but Chris is definitely the most professional I have dealt with.
Andy P
Wouldn’t hesitate to book Chris again! Answered messages promptly, looked after my two really well and sent lovely pictures and messages which were very reassuring. Top marks 🙂
Janet M
Our two boys were well looked after whilst we were away. Chris made sure they were given the attention they needed and made sure the house was all in order for us getting back. The photo updates were great too!
Leigh C
A very professional and wholly reliable service from a really nice guy. This was our first time using Chris’s services and we were hugely impressed. Excellent communications throughout, thoughtful gestures like collecting our mail from the mat, and spending time with the cat rather than just a perfunctory visit. We think our cat enjoyed our holiday as much as we did. Will definitely use again. Highly recommended.
Patrick T
Chris kindly pet sat to cover my summer holidays. He was very attentive towards my pets and sent regular photos and updates without prompting which was a lovely surprise. The property was left clean and tidy and when I returned my pets were certainly very happy. So much so, that Chris is already lined up to cover this summer holiday too.
Caroline R
When choosing a cat-sitter to care for your pet while you are away, there are important decisions to be made.

First, you must find someone who will care properly for your beloved pet and more importantly it must be a person you can trust to be given the key to your property and home.

I have found Chris Bruce to be absolutely competent in both of these requirements. He has made a point of getting to know my cat so that she happily welcomes him. Also, he is absolutely trustworthy so that I have no fear in handing over the key of my house to him.
Pam C
Chris did an absolutely brilliant job looking after our cat Chester while we were on holiday. We had Chester in a cattery the last time we went on holiday and he wasn’t happy with it at all. It was so much better knowing Chester was at home being looked after by someone who obviously cares and knows about cats. Chris got on very well with Chester and sent us updates and pictures, so we knew Chester was in good hands. Chris is professional and very easy to deal with. I fully recommend him for all your cat-sitting needs.
Jesse T
Absolutely thrilled with the service from Chris, for our darling Eric. Great communication, including pics & updates on Eric while we were away. Really friendly and had Eric’s trust in no time at all, and he can be a shy boy. Would highly recommend Chris. Thanks for all you did for us & Eric!
Jill M
I can highly recommend Chis. He is very reliable and a lovely person. Our cats genuinely like him – which doesn’t always happen. He is flexible and very good with his communication, even sending photo updates of the cats when we were away (after checking we wanted them).
Julie R
Big thank you to Chris for looking after my kitties while I was away for the weekend ! The kitties were very happy and calm on my return ! Chris very kindly sent me lots of pictures and kept in great contact ! Thanks Chris 🙂
Lauren A
Another fantastic booking and kitty-care service from Chris. Absolutely loved the updates on Eric while we were away and had no hesitation booking Chris again.
Jill M
I am very happy to have found Chris as my new cat sitter. He is kind, gentle and thoughtful. Most importantly my cat seems to like him and is very content and relaxed when I get home. Chris has also been very accommodating when I have changed my plans. I would highly recommend him.
Gillian P
Chris was professional from start to finish and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He truly loves cats and takes time and care. He was so good with the cats that we booked him immediately for a next holiday. We usually take our cats to one of Edinburgh’s expensive catteries and decided to take a go at using a cat sitter and it was miles better.
Natasha M
Chris has such a kind and gentle manner that I had no qualms about him having the keys to my home and taking care of my beloved cat.
Fiona M
Chris looked after my kitties admirably, and was in touch over the week so I knew that all was OK. I would not hesitate to use his services again.
Pauline J
Excellent care gave me fantastic peace of mind.
Christine M
Chris has looked after our cat Eddie a number of times and we always come home to a very happy cat! The daily updates and photos are great and Chris is very reliable – we know Eddie is in good hands 🙂
Alice F
Chris did an amazing job with our two cats. He kept us informed every day, with photos and updates on how they were doing. He was very responsive and professional. I will definitely be using Chris again!
Lindley K
I’m absolutely delighted with Chris. I contacted him at quite late notice for a short booking and he could not have been more helpful. He came to meet the cats and is obviously great with them, he even coaxed out my wee shy girl, and I had no worries leaving them in his care. While we were away, the contact was excellent. Lots of pictures and helpful information – I cannot fault anything. Cats were super happy and relaxed when I returned, and Chris had even done my dishes. I’ve found my cat sitter! 11/10
Vikki M
Chris has been just fantastic. It was the first time that we left our cat Leo with a cat sitter. We were a bit worried as Leo has had some stress issues and can be a bit particular with some things. Chris has been so nice and helpful. He sent very detailed updates which were very reassuring. It was great to get photo updates every day to see he was doing well! Thank you so much Chris for going above and beyond!
Naima L
Chris has been a star, our boys love him and he sends us daily updates with lots of great pictures! Really lovely guy and and always a great service, will continue to use him whenever we are away! Can’t recommend highly enough 😊
Emily R
Chris has looked after my cat Sirius twice now, and I could not recommend him highly enough! He got on so well with Sirius so quickly, and it’s obvious that he cares about the cats he looks after. He kept us so well informed of how Sirius was doing – which was especially reassuring the first time we left Sirius because we were quite nervous about leaving him on his own! But we were put as ease so quickly, and we will definitely be using My Cat Sitter the next time we’re away
Shannon M
Can’t recommend My Cat Sitter enough! We’d never left our wee housecat Leroy before but Chris made the whole thing so smooth. The first visit was so thorough and really reassured me. Lovely regular updates meant we could relax, knowing how much fun Leroy was having! We’ve just booked Chris again. Love the pics he manages the get of the kitties he looks after too!!
Stacey W
After nervously looking around for a cat sitter for the first time, I came across Chris’s page and was blown away by the reviews.
On meeting Chris, I knew my choice was the right one, especially when my fussy cat took to him instantly (she can sometimes be a bit temperamental around men).
He’s kept me updated daily, and knowing she was sitting on his lap on day one, I knew she was happy with our choice as well.
I would recommend Chris for any cat sitting you need, I know I will definitely be booking him for my next trip.
Sammy B
Chris did a fantastic job of looking after our two cats (and helpfully feeding the fish and taking the mail in too!) Receiving the photos and updates was lovely, and the cats were happy and healthy (and their room tidy!) on our return. We’ve already booked Chris again, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him – we’ve used other cat sitters and he offers a high quality service that represents better value than others.
Catherine C
Tab seemed perfectly happy and had food in her dish when my mum got back from her trip. Chris texted several times, but did not send any photos. Chris stepped in at the last minute to help us out and responded to our request and emails immediately. We were grateful for his help.
David C
Chris looked after the cats well and kept us updated with pictures and messages to increase our peace of mind. He came around before to meet us and asked all the questions and the cats were happy when we got back, without the usual chattery sulks!
Tess J
We’ve used Chris a couple of times now and he gives a great service. Our fur family is always well liked after with regular updates and great photos. He really cares about them and takes the time to get to know them and plays with them on each visit. Very happy and highly recommended!
