We are delighted with the care our cat Ola has received whilst in your care. From the moment we dropped him off we knew he would be in the best possible hands, the staff are so kind and caring and you know that they genuinely love cats. We enjoyed our holiday knowing that he would be well looked after. In fact I have already mentioned boarding him there again in October, and would never go anywhere else. Thank you all so much.

First time my house cat has been away from home. The staff were lovely and very caring . On picking up my cat after my holiday he seemed happy and relaxed. Would definitely recommend and will be using them again.

I live locally and found the reviews online very helpful. I had the unfortunate experience of needing to have an animal euthanised, the whole team were friendly and professional throughout the process and I appreciated their sincerity. All I can say is they made my day far more tolerable by supporting and acknowledging my decision. A big thanks specifically to Makayla at the main branch and Lorraine and Ali at Westgate for all your support, it meant the world to me.

Amazing service, very helpful and friendly staff.

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
