Meet The Team

Hi, I’m Emma

I live in Bathgate with partner Lauren, my 4 year old Cat Poirot and my 10 year old Dog, Comet.

I have always loved animals, especially cats and dogs, which led me to study Animal Care at Oatridge college. I currently have my own dog walking business based in Linlithgow which I really enjoy.

Alongside this I have been working with Alicat Purrfections since June 2022. I initially took the job on thinking it would just be to help occasionally but as Alicat Purrfections has gone from strength to strength I have got more and more regular work with them.

I have loved every minute of working with the cats. I enjoy getting to take care of the cats needs and getting to play with them. It’s particularly a joy when you meet a shy cat who hides away at first and then after repeat visits, they start to become more and more confident and begin to trust you.  

We get clients that use us a few times a year so establish relationships with them and the cats. It’s so lovely to see returning kitties as we take care of them like our own and miss them when we don’t see them for a while!

Hi, I’m Sammy

I live in West Lothian with my partner, my 2 bunnies called Cookie & Bella, and my 2 cats called Bear & Tank. I’ve worked for Alicat Purrfections for a couple of years alongside my full-time job in a veterinary hospital where I work with cats and dogs.

I joined the team after a friend had seen the job advert and told me about it, it seemed perfect for me as I’ve always had a love for animals and a passion for their welfare, with a particular soft spot for cats. In 2021 I completed a short course in cat behaviour to further my feline knowledge. 

I usually cover visits in West Calder, Polbeth, Murieston & surrounding, but I have met many of the kitties from the Alicat Purrfections family all across West Lothian. I am very conscious of working in a sustainable way, whether that’s using biodegradable poop bags or collecting cat food pouches for recycling. I would love to be able to do the cat visits in a more eco friendly vehicle one day too. 

I’ve enjoyed working as a cat sitter as it has allowed me to learn more about cats and their behaviour, I think it’s great that we can look after them in their own homes where they feel the most comfortable and they can show us their personalities. 

I’ve met a huge range of cat personalities over the years and no two are ever the same making my bond with each of them individual and special. 

Hi, I’m Alison

I live in East Calder with my husband, son and our fur baby, Pepsi. I joined Allison’s Alicat Purrfections kitty family on 1st July 2023.

I have many years of experience in management and customer service. I have my own business (based in LJP hairdressing & beauty studio, East Calder) providing beauty therapy treatments to clients in and around the East Calder area.

My love and passion for cats started when I was very young, as we were very much a cat loving family. Being around cats my whole life has made me very familiar with different breeds and temperaments, and of course, learning and loving all the different personalities!

As a cat lover, caring for kitties whilst their humans are away is the best job! I love (and very much prefer) that cats can be left in their own environment (their own home and garden) which avoids making them stressed and keeps them happy and content.
Cat sitting is the perfect alternative solution which works perfectly for cat and owner.

Alicat Purrfections has a wonderful friendly team of just the 4 of us and we love dedicating our time to our client’s fur babies. Our priority is to leave our clients and their kitties very happy with our service by meeting their requests and always aiming to give a little bit more. Our clients are always left happy knowing that their fur babies are left in great hands.

I can promise your little fur baby will be treated like one of my own whilst you are away. You will always return to a very happy kitty.

Get In Touch

I am happy to discuss your requirements for the care of your cat when you can’t be there. I cover Livingston and all the surrounding towns & villages in West Lothian.
