Why choose us to take care of your babies?

We truly understand how hard it can be to entrust your loved babies to someone you’ve never met, as we have been in that situation not long ago when we first moved away from the families that were usually taking care of our gang of five felines.  On the other hand, we also know that cats definitely don’t want to be left in a cattery, an unfamiliar environment away from their usual territory.  (Please check out our article “Why Cats Hate Catteries”.  For those reasons, we will go above and beyond to make you and your kitties happy, safe and sound, all in the warmth of their home!

More about us

We were born and bred in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We adopted each other in 2016 when I - Ivona bought my first car from Meho (funny way to meet, don’t you agree?).  We have been living together since 2018 and we moved to our home in Scotland in 2020 after falling in love with Edinburgh on of our trips.  I have a Master’s degree in Computer science.  We enjoy travelling together, especially on road trips and exploring new places.  Meho was always passionate about gym workouts and passed that passion on to me as well.  We complement each other perfectly.  I am very proactive and courageous while Meho is very supportive and reasoned.  Our love for animals dates all the way back to our childhoods.  Meho previously owned a dog, and I had a leopard gecko.


Meho the Edinburgh cat sitter


Our home is now ruled by five fur babies – all adopted as kittens from the streets in Bosnia.  Our first baby came to us in 2017 and his name is Felix.  Felix loves to sleep, and his favourite place to sleep is Meho’s chest while he’s watching the TV, or my lap while I’m working.  Afterwards came Crna, a little female black cat.  She is the smartest one in the house.  Crna is expert in opening doors, so we had to adjust all the doors in our home to stop her from going to the wrong places at the wrong time.  Our third baby came one year after the first one, in 2018, and his name is Malac (which means “tiny in our mother tongue).  He got this name as he was a very small kitten when we got him, but he grew to be the biggest one, but still, the name stuck.  He loves to work with and “use” the computer, but he is a bit clumsy, so we always have good laughs watching him on his adventures.  The fourth baby is Minnie, a gorgeous grey lookalike of Felix.  Nope, they are not related, but the love they share cannot be described with words.  They have been best friends since day one.  Repica was the last one to join our family, and she has been such a precious addition ever since!  She was hurt in a car accident before we found her, so we went through the recovery process with her, which made us bond on a different level.  Her tail had to be removed, and she has had trust issues since then, but that just makes her love more precious to us – we feel so honoured that she trusts us now!


Edinburgh cat sitting service

As we couldn’t keep all the love for ourselves, over the course of years, we successfully found forever homes for more than 10 stray cats and kittens in our home country.  We still continuously support the adoption of stray cats and dogs in Bosnia.
