What Our Customers Say

My two Cat Grace and Zeus stayed for a week with Ladybird Cattery. They were clearly well cared for. They had everything covered for us and the price included all their food for the week which is great. I highly recommend Ladybird Kennels and Cattery.

Our 3 dogs and 5 cats stayed here at the beginning of January for a week. I was extremely nervous about leaving them but they were so well looked after. They truly seemed to have a lovely time and although happy to see us when we got back they certainly weren’t desperate to leave the lovely ladies looking after them. It was such an amazing relief to see that they were treated so wonderfully and we really enjoyed seeing the photos and videos posted on Facebook whilst we were away. We’ve already booked them in for our next time away and although I’ll miss them it will be good to know they are in such safe and gentle hands.

We only trust the caring staff here to look after our 1 year old sprocker. They give him plenty of cuddles and exercise as well as care for his grain free diet. Coco comes home so happy after his stays, they are amazing x

100% recommend it here, our dog Bert gets so excited as we enter the gates of ladybird and cry’s to get out of the car, when he sees the amazing staff here his tail is wagging ten to the dozen and he can’t wait to go off with them and have fun. It’s so good for us because we can enjoy our holiday knowing he is enjoying his xx
