North View Boarding Kennels & Cats Hotel Testimonials

"My cats Bella and Murphy have been boarding at North View Cattery for over 5 years and I am happy to recommend them as a home from home for all cat owners needing accommodation for their pets. They are always happy and content when they come home after their stay. I particularly like the way the owners are aware of both Bella and Murphy's characteristics and treat them as the individuals they are. Their accommodation is light and airy, often with music to make them feel at home. I would recommend North View as I know that Bella and Murphy are in safe hands." Fiona, Bella & Murphy

"In 2004 we moved to the Fylde Coast from Cheshire with our 2 cats and a dog. We had to find a vet also kennels and cattery. We look around but could not find anything suitable so we asked our vet the Mount Veterinary Surgery and she told us about North View and Karen who runs it. We went to see North View and were very impressed with what we saw. We very much liked the kennels for the small dogs as Relish is a Corgi and also a Rescue Dog and very unsure of people. Since he has been going to North View he has got very confident with Karen and Andrew. The cats also go and they have all home comforts in their pens.We would recommend North View to anybody with cats or dogs." Beryl Maddock

"We have found the perfect kennels for our little Lhaso Apso, Shan.North View Kennels are set in beautiful countryside, and are set in beautiful countryside, and are owned by a lovely lady called Karen.The kennels are kept to an exceptional standard. Shan has been going to stay at North View for 6 years.We always know Shan is going to be well looked after by Karen, so we can then go on holiday with peace of mind." Mr & Mrs Garrett

"We have been using North View Cats Hotel for many years now. Our cat Mitsy feels very at home there and always comes back from her stay contented and relaxed. All our pets have been very well cared for, including also our rabbit Peter, and hamster, Scampi. Karen cares for all animals as individuals and feeds them according to their usual routines. The cats have toys to play with and comfy blankets to sleep on. All the 'rooms' have a window to look out from and a range of levels for the cats to explore. The staff are friendly and accommodating and I can't imagine ever taking Mitsy anywhere else for her holiday. It's lovely to be able to go away with such peace of mind that she will be so well looked after." Mary Hewitt

"I have been a devoted "cat lover" for more than 70 years. During that time I have had recourse to the services of boarding kennels on innumerable occasions. Nearly 10 years ago I was advised of the qualities of the Cats Hotel and have left my cats in their care many times during holidays and stays in hospital. The facilities are excellent and very well cat oriented and the staff is totally devoted to their care. Indeed the cats have "told" me all about it. There is never the slightest protest when the cat basket appears nor when we arrive at North View, they obviously enjoy being welcomed by Karen and Andrew who they clearly recognise and like nor is there any "tale of woe" on the way home. I have never had the slightest reservation of leaving my companions in their care." Alan Wallis

"Islay is very nervous with people outside the family but Andrew and Karen won her over and she enjoys her stay at North View. Recently she had to stay in the kennels shortly after an operation at the vets but we had every confidence she would be well cared for and, as always, that was the case." Mark & Gayle Bartlett

"I'm pleased to be able to write you a glowing reference for your kennels. You and Andrew have both looked after Bob the Beagle so well over the past ten years. Without me asking you have always bathed Bob's eyes to keep them nice and clean. Knowing I can go on holiday leaving Bob in your care means so much to me." Angela Dodd & Bob the Beagle

"Our pets have been boarding at North View since 2003, and we have always been more than happy with the level of care and attention they receive. Karen and the family are wonderfully accommodating of our menagerie - we currently bring the dog, the rabbit, 5 guinea pigs and 4 hens! We recommend North View unreservedly." Elaine & Michael Gisbourne

"North View were able to accomodate my Nina at short notice and were excellent throughout - with comfortable and modern facilities and a caring attitude from Karen and Andrew I was more than happy knowing she was being well looked after." Tom & Nina the Cat

"My cat, Georgie, has been staying at staying at North View during the past 10 years, whenever we had to go away from home. I have never had any cause for concern and she has always been very content when I collected here. Karen and Andrew know her and I feel that they look after her as if she was theirs. North View is not our nearest cattery, but I would never take my cat anywhere else - I can unreservedly recommend North View to any other cat owner." Jane Bonner

"I just wanted to say thank you to yourself and your staff for looking after Freddie, Darcy and Alfie so well whilst we were away on holiday. They have been coming to stay with you for the last couple of years and i cannot thank you enough, they are so well looked after, always content and happy when we pick them back up, they have never lost weight ( although freddie could do with losing a couple of pounds ;-) ) . I love the fact my 3 dogs can be kept together in an absolutely huge kennel area !! I even forget to bring some of their own toys the last time and you kindly gave them some to play with, I have no worries leaving them with you at all, see you in August .... massive thanks !!! x " Nicola & Adrian King
