The business was founded by company director Emily whose love of cats and experience working under the management of Charlie from A Furry World in London led her to start Candyfloss Cats in 2009. In 2014 Emily's sister Lucy took over the south and east of the city as the business continued to expand. Candyloss Cats North West and Candyfloss Cats South East are run as two separate businesses under the umbrella of the brand name Candyfloss Cats.
Starting with cat clients Candy and Floss, Candyfloss Cats now has a client base of just under 2000 homes in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Ayr.
All carers are trained, insured and vetted with recent clear Scottish Disclosures. The team are covered by Petplan Sanctuary insurance and have qualifications in Cat First Aid Training. Every visit is monitored and quality controlled by the managers of both branches so you can rest assured that no matter which carer visits your home, the quality of the service will remain consistant.
Emily started working in pet care professionally in London in 2003 and started Candyfloss Cats in 2009. She lives in Maybole with her husband and their two english bull terriers Kasper and Luna.
