Thank you so much for looking after Silky while she was unwell and caring for her and letting us know she was ok while we were away. It was good to know she was in your care.

Dear Dennis and Andrea

Cherry Tree Cattery

This is just a few lines to sincerely thank you for caring for our cat SAMSON whilst we are on holiday. We would recommend your cattery to anyone as being clean, in secure pleasant surroundings, each enclosure for the cat is individual nicely furnished, and we know that he will be well looked after by your caring staff. SAMMY always comes home happy.

The Cherry Tree Cattery is set back from a semi-rural location with well kept gardens, in very pleasant and peaceful surroundings. On every visit that we have made to the cattery, all of the cats are well cared for, each enclosure always looked well presented and spotlessly clean, sometimes with soft music playing, and cats are allowed to bring their own special toys and blanket from home if they wish. What I think is also very nice is that some of the enclosures have an outside area for the cat to exercise if it so desires. Lastly, I think that the cats enjoy a gentle quiet experience in a clean, fresh pleasant smelling atmosphere. Whenever our SAMSON comes home from a visit we know that he never loses his confidence – which is a clear indication that he has enjoyed his stay with you.

This was the second time that Milly was booked to stay with you in the space of four weeks. On the first occasion she was very agitated whilst in her cat box, but I couldn’t believe the difference when bringing her to you this time. She was calm and relaxed and seemed very settled in the car. It was lovely to see this change in her, which must reflect the kindness that she was shown the last time she stayed with you.

Thank you,

“Thanks for looking after Phoebe and Rambo and taking care of them so well. Especially for being so accommodating when our break was extended last minute due to the air traffic control strike! Our cats are always settled and looked after really well. Before we book any time away we always check your availability first, as we know if they stay with you, they are in safe hands.

Our cats have visited 4 times and the cattery is a clean, safe environment for cats in a quiet location. We felt very welcome from the first time we went to visit, where we had a tour of the facilities and Andrea spent time with us to ensure she understood the needs of our cats. They are accommodating and let you bring toys etc from home and let you settle the cats in before leaving them. We highly recommend this cattery!”

Hi Andrea and Dennis, thought you might be interested to hear that Sparky made the long trip to NZ unscathed and has settled very well in his new home. Best wishes to you both.
Regards, Coral and David.

Thanks for letting us know, and it was a pleasure to look after him. He is a very lucky boy to have you and David has his Mummy and Daddy. Well good luck and it was lovely to know you.
Best Wishes

Just want to say a massive thank you for looking after our girls Poppie and Sherbet many times! In times of need and for our holidays. Always welcomed warmly to a lovely environment.

The cattery is very clean, very well looked after in a lovely peaceful location. I wouldn’t use anywhere else and I would 100% recommend to anyone! I know my girls are safe and are given plenty of love and attention when they come to stay 😊

Andrea and Dennis are wonderful people and truly love what they do. We couldn’t ask for better.

See you again soon!

Recently boarded our 2 year old cat here and can honestly say if cats could talk ours would say she loved it!!!! She literally kissed the owner goodbye:-)!!! Our little cat has come home seeming very happy and healthy. I was concerned she would be cold but her area was nice and cozy with a heated blanket and out door access as required. Thank you so much to Cherry Tree Cattery for taking such good care of our little Jessie! Xx

Thank you for taking such good care of our lovely Poppy. I was so worried about leaving her for such a long time nearly 4 weeks while we visited family in Australia over Christmas. She came back happy, healthy, fur shining and with new toys which she loves to play with. We think she enjoyed her holiday as much as we enjoyed ours! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you such a lovely Cattery.

Bertie has just come back from staying with Andrea and Dennis for Christmas and New Year. He came home with his new teddy which was his Christmas present bought for him by Andrea. He is now sleeping having checked out his territory out side and still appears to love us despite his 6 week holiday, which proves to me how happy he has been. We know he gets the best care and as always he has been loved and given 5 star treatment whilst in Andrea and Dennis care. Thank you so much for looking after my baby so well X

Dear Andrea and Dennis
This is just a little note of thanks from us, and on behalf of Phoebe.
Your kindness, love, dedication, made it easy for us to have worry free holidays.
We knew Phoebe was not just in a safe place and good hands, but that she would receive all the love and fuss that she would, as if she was at home.
We know we will not be the only ones to miss her. Thank you so much once again, and we will recommend you to friends.

Our two cats, Minnie & Twiglet, always come back from here so happy and relaxed, in fact in better spirits than I bring them in!! I have used catteries for years & Cherry Tree Cattery is excellent & I know my cats (babies) are in excellent hands.
Thank you

Theo loves his stay at “the spa”. He doesn’t want to leave when we come to pick him up and looks happy & groomed every time! Andrea and Dennis are so friendly & we have no worries leaving our cat in their care.
Thank you so much!

Hi Andrea
Just to say thanks again for looking after Mia. She seems really relaxed and obviously had lots of love and brushes. We’ll definitely be in touch next time we go away – it was perfect for her/our first ‘holiday’.

Hi Andrea and Dennis
Thank you so much for looking after Jack and Brandy, they are so happy, I think they enjoyed their holiday. Last time they came home from a cattery Brandy was so nervous and Jack had lost weight. If anyone ever asks for recommendations you will definitely be the ones. Will be in touch to book them in again.
See you soon

I have been using this excellent cattery for the past 7 years. My cats have never been looked after so well and cared for. Andrea even cooked chicken specially for my very poorly cat. They come home so happy. Thank you both so much. See you again soon.

We feel so relieved to have found somewhere secure to leave our Pebbles, when we go on holiday. Knowing that she is in the safe care of Andrea and Dennis makes us feel happy that we can trust these two wonderful people who genuinely care for our cat as if she’s their own. The prices are so reasonable, and the pens are clean and hygienic. Pebbles is so relaxed and content when we collect her, so it’s home from home. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Cherry Tree Cattery, because we consider we have been so lucky to have found this wonderful cattery to anyone we know. Thank you for everything, and Pebbles says thank you too. Xxx
