About Me/ Company

Hi, my name is Allison and I am the founder of Alicat Purrfections, a Cat Sitting Service in West Lothian. I am based in Livingston and cover West Lothian. If you live outside of West Lothian, please don’t hesitate to contact me as I may be able offer my services.

I have had a passion for cats since I chose my first kitten when I was 6 years old (1977!). 'Ginger' lived to a ripe old age of 19. However, it wasn't until 2009 that I was able to have my next cat 'Poppet' from Cats Protection Glasgow Adoption Centre in Kirkintilloch. I sadly lost her in 2014. The house was not the same without a fur baby around, so I adopted 'Charlie' from Lothian Cat Rescue in November 2014. I had previously volunteered there and knew how well they looked after the cats.

I worked in the Travel Industry from the age of 19, after completing a HND in Business and Finance (specialising in Travel Management). For 15 years I was a Manager for a worldwide Car Hire company, so I have lots of Customer Service experience. I will always go that extra mile to ensure my customers receive the best possible service.

In December 2013 I changed my career to work for a charity who support people with disabilities to live fulfilling and independent lives. I have been a member of Disclosure Scotland (PVG scheme) since joining the organisation, I can not work in Social Services without being checked. I support vulnerable adults in their own homes which requires me to be trustworthy, reliable, organised, conscientious and flexible. I have completed numerous training courses such as Infection Control, H&S, Food Hygiene, Person Centred approach, Managing Difficult Epilepsy and in 2016 I completed an SVQ3 in Social Services & Healthcare. I am fully registered with the SSSC, as I must work to their Codes of Conduct.

When I did the 2 day Practical Cattery Management course; I saw first hand how stressed the cats can be when boarding. Which is why I decided to start my own Cat Sitting Service. I understand it’s an anxious time for both you and your cat, which is why staying in their home environment definitely helps keep them happy. I always put their welfare first and ensure they are safe to give you peace of mind while you are away.

I will endevour to tailor make the service I provide to your cat(s) routine, to ensure they remain happy and relaxed while you are away on holiday or business.

I will send regular updates with photos to give you peace of mind.

I am friendly, reliable, trustworthy and have a flexible approach to my work. I will always put your fur baby as my priority whilst in my care.
