Happy Cattery

Moorcroft, Blackmoor Road, Abbotts Leigh BS8 3RH, UK – 01275 373903

The most wonderful home from home for your cats. The owner, Ray, & his staff couldn't be more reassuring & kind. Real cat lovers.

I boarded Marmalade at Happy Cattery for four nights over Christmas. I have never used a cattery or boarding kennel before for any of my animals so I was very nervous. I had also experienced a personal tragedy during the summer and my life had been turned upside down. Hence the need to board my cat. I found Ray and Ruth caring, attentive and considerate at every stage. Ray was compassionate about my loss and understood my anxiety at leaving Marmalade under the circumstances. Marmalade was a rescue cat and is rather nervous but I would not hesitate to leave him with Ray again. The cattery is idyllically set in a rural and peaceful location and all the cats seemed very contented. I wouldn't mind staying there myself! Ray and Ruth are genuine animal lovers and I am very thankful for the care they gave to Marmalade. Thank you both and a very Happy New Year. Sorry it's taken so long to write this review.

A wealth knowledge and love at a brilliant practice. Richard and Helen have both been great with our little puppy Olive. She’s been in a few times for various reasons and each time they’ve made us feel at ease and explained everything and given us 100% reassurance. Nurses are absolutely brilliant and so friendly on arrival. I trust them all in the care of our precious pup. Can’t reccomend enough. Thanks so much!

As always good professional service and care. A small friendly practice.
