cat named Rum Tum

RumTum, Calypso & Ulysses

We have three very sweet, very high-maintenance kitties that need regular attention and medication, and as a household that travels regularly, Karen has been a true life saver. She is always cheerful and reliable, even for last minute trips. Her regular updates throughout our trip put us at ease and let us enjoy our time away. We always come home to happy kitties, and couldn’t recommend Karen’s Cat Care more highly! Liz, Rickmansworth

Ted & Alfie's Owner

Karen is a wonderful pet sitter. She has a natural affinity for animals, and both of my cats (one outgoing, one shy and grumpy) love her. Her approach is very organised; comprehensive notes and regular communication put my mind completely at ease when I’m away from home. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. Thanks! Hollie, Northwood

Max & Minnie's Owner

I recently used Karen’s services whilst we went away for a long weekend. Karen made an appointment to come to our house before the booking date to meet our two cats and complete a questionnaire/fact sheet. The fact sheet was very detailed and covered many aspects of our cats requirements. The service that Karen offered was exceptional; I was quite anxious about leaving our cats as we had not had them long, but it soon became apparent that Karen is a devoted cat lover and I felt they would be well looked after by her. Whilst we were away we had regular communication from Karen advising how the cats were, what they had eaten and what games she had played with them, which was very reassuring. Karen even offered to give our home the ‘lived in’ look by closing/opening curtains switching on lights and picking up the post. I have already recommended Karen’s services to a neighbour and would not hesitate to do so with others. Thanks Karen; you’re a star! Kind rgds, Su, Chorleywood

Kitty's Owner

When I go on holiday, I can relax knowing Kitty is in very safe hands with Karen. I have used Karen’s Cat Care quite a few times now, and have found it a great service. Knowing Karen is a genuine cat lover herself, with two cats of her own, gives me peace of mind that Kitty will be well looked after. On our first meeting, Karen was very thorough and she wanted to know as much as possible about Kitty, and what sort of cat she is. Karen also gives you email updates while you’re away so you know everything is ok at home, and whether your cat is eating as normal. I feel totally at ease when handing over my house keys to Karen, and it’s reassuring to know that she’s popping in every day. Karen has even removed parcels/post from my porch, so the house still looks occupied. I have just booked Karen in again, and I have already told Kitty that her “Aunty Karen” will be coming to look after her! Jo, Chorleywood

cat named Jinxy

Jinxy's Owner

A huge thank you for looking after Jinxy and our house so very well. I felt completely secure that it was all in safe hands and you went above and beyond on every effort. We’ll definitely be using you again. All the best. Alex, Chesham Bois
cat named Poppy

Poppy's Owner

Karen is a genuinely excellent cat sitter. I struggled to find someone reliable for a while, but was lucky enough to find her online. When I am away she keeps me up to date on everything, and when I come back I find the place in perfect working order and my cat well looked after and relaxed. I wouldn’t even consider using anyone else. Khilen, Northwood

Lulu's Owner

Karen is  reliable and organised, precise and very great with our little Lulu. We’ve been using Karen’s service for a while now and have had a great experience with her. We arrived home to find everything exactly as we wanted and Lulu, our lovely cat, was happy and healthy as usual. Karen started with a questionnaire about pretty much anything and everything you can think of regarding our cat and our house, also she leaves a detailed journal of her visits including photos via email, whatsapp or text. We really appreciated her service and would recommend her to anyone. Frankie & Francesca, Chorleywood
cat named Bootsie

Bootsie's Owner

I can’t recommend Karen highly enough. Karen looked after my mother’s cat – Bootsie, whilst in hospital and recuperating with us, in all for almost two months. She spent time with Bootsie checking she was OK, made everything tidy and bought food when required. Karen kindly text’d pictures which really cheered-up Mother. Sadly, Bootsie has never been that friendly, but bit by bit, Karen, on her own initiative, worked with her. Now Bootsie will let us stroke her and sit on a lap without “lashing out”. Such a difference for my mother. Very kind and hence ”Care beyond the call of Duty”. Karen’s Cat Care is very competently run, you get a very clear and detailed invoice, can pay by transfer – all of which is helpful when managing “remotely”. Chris, Chorleywood
cats named Alfie and Oscar

Alfie & Oscar's Owner

I have an elderly cat who had lost a lot of weight on his last cattery visit so needed him to stay at home for a 2 week holiday. I had Karen recommended to me by a friend and I can’t rate her highly enough. There was a very thorough 30 minute handover meeting – then while we were away there were daily e mails, texts and photos. It was reassuring to know the cats were in their home environment, Karen could give Alfie his medication, and they both had their home comforts. I also did not have to worry about ‘the cattery run’ and the cats were there to greet us when we got back. Not to mention a bottle of milk in the fridge when we returned! A fantastic service! Caroline, Chorleywood

Poppy's Owner

Karen has looked after our cat Poppy on numerous occasions over the last year and we’ve always been really pleased with the service provided. Karen is reliable and trustworthy and sends regular updates via text message or email whilst we’re away, letting us know that Poppy is ok. This provides comfort and reassurance and allows us to relax and enjoy our holiday knowing that she is in safe hands. Poppy always seems happy when we return from holiday, so thank you for taking such good care of her!! Louisa, Chesham Bois

Mancci, Narley & Nethey's Owner

Karen has looked after my cats, rabbits and tortoise for several years now. We have to go away at short notice sometimes and Karen is always there. I feel I can go away and not worry because Karen would be as diligent as I would be when it comes to caring and looking out for my animals and she keeps me updated after every visit. Since Karen has been caring for them my cats are less stressed when I return and I would totally recommend her services, she takes the time to understand each animal’s individual needs and really cares, she doesn’t just turn up feed them and leave. Susan, Loudwater
cat named Kaboodle

Mia, Minx, Kaboodle & Honey's Owner

We have had a number of different people look after our cats in the past when we have been away on holiday. The service you provided for us recently was the most professional we have ever experienced. You took the time and trouble to really understand our requirements, and delivered what you promised – if not over and above! We were delighted on our return to find Mia, Minx, Honey and Kaboodle happy and settled, and evidently very well cared-for in our absence. We will have no hesitation in using your services again. Best wishes, Andrew & Fiona, Chorleywood

Carlos & Mercury's Owner

We have been absolutely delighted with Karen’s care for our cats Mercury and Carlos this summer on a number of occasions. We came back to 2 very happy and relaxed cats. Our holidays were made all the more enjoyable knowing that they were both safe and well looked after. It was great to get regular updates about our cats from Karen and to receive photos of them. Karen clearly loves cats and has a great rapport with them. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Caroline, Rickmansworth

Pearl's Owner

This is a letter to thank you for taking care of our cat Pearl while we were away. I was extremely happy with the professional service you provided, my cat didn’t even notice that we were away! I really appreciated the emails you sent each day letting us know how Pearl is doing and what she’s been up to. You even made sure that my hamster is okay. It put my mind at ease knowing that you are a cat lover yourself with cats of your own. I would definitely like to use your cat sitting service in the future! With best regards, Bernadette, Chorleywood
cat named Simba

Simba & Nala's Owner

Thanks for your lovely emails and for all the kindness and attention you have shown us and more importantly our kitties over the last two weeks. We were nervous about leaving them for so long and it has been a huge relief to know they were being cared for so well. Melanie, Chorleywood
cat named Sophie

Sophie's Owner

Just thought you might like to see Sophie really relaxed. She has been very cuddly since our return. Thank you again for looking after her especially under such horrific weather conditions. To walk all the way from Chorleywood to ours [Sarratt] and back in the snow was no mean feat and showed amazing dedication. I will certainly not hesitate to use your services again and will be more than happy to recommend you to my friends. Wendy, Sarratt
