'It’s hard to express just how much peace of mind having Carol look after my cat whilst I’m away has given me! She and her small team have been so accommodating, so flexible and truly compassionate towards my lovely old tom cat. 

After seeing a Cattery first hand, I was terrified at the thought of leaving my beloved pet there, and thought I’d probably rather just not go away. However, this summer having elderly family members a few hours drive away definitely required me going away for a few nights. Carols service made this possible, and left my cat feeling loved and comfortable in his own home. 

Having photos of him sent to me during my times away over the summer has given me so comfort and absolutely put my mind at ease! 

Naomi, Northchurch August 2019'

We started using Carol’s cat care service for when we are away and it was especially important when our cat was diagnosed with heart condition and needed medication daily. Contented Cats has been looking after our two cats for nearly 2 years and it gives us a peace of mind knowing Carol is there to look after them. Carol is very reliable and keeps us updated with their wellbeing.  Mrs K Berkhamsted July 2019
I highly recommend Contented Cats as a most caring, knowledgeable, friendly and efficient team who will consistently go the extra mile to help, both in bookings and in the welfare of your pets. 
My cat and I met Carol last summer when she looked after Mia brilliantly during my holiday. This year's care was especially significant in that Mia now has advanced diabetes; a potentially difficult situation which has positively highlighted the dedication of Carol and her team and their genuine affection for their furry charges. 
They made extra visits to Mia to fit in with her routine and, as they have always done, each visit included thoughtfully spending time with her and giving her heaps of much appreciated cuddles! It was also lovely to have, as last year, regular updates and wonderful photos of my most contented cat! In Carol and her team I have found Mia the best, safest hands for life and both she and I are so very grateful! Thank you!  D.Chesham July 2019
I have been using Contented Cats for years and am really happy with the service they provide. Carol is always very friendly and our cats love her. It gives me peace of mind when I am away as I know they are being well looked after in the comfort of their own home. She sends regular updates with pictures so I know they are happy. I would highly recommend Carol and the team. Mrs B. Berkhamsted June 2019
Carol has been looking after my pets for over 2 years, from hamsters to chickens with the odd rabbit or two! Plus not forgetting the cats,  they  are happy to be in their own home, well looked after and also a plus is your house is kept an eye on. Would recommend to anyone. S. Berkhamsted April 2019
As soon as I met Carol I knew Teddy would be in good hands.  We have used Contented Cats now a few times and will always use them, and would highly recommend them.  Not only is your pet happy in its own surroundings, you are also given daily photo updates too. C Berkhamsted April 2019
 I can wholeheartedly recommend Carol and Contented Cats. Carol kindly looked after Sparkle while we were away for two weeks abroad and I felt so comfortable that she was in excellent hands.  The WhatsApp pics were a fantastic idea, so we could see how happy and played with our cat was. The weather was unbelievably hot and it was evident that Sparkle’s well-being was of utmost importance to Carol, ensuring that playtime was kept in the shade etc. I’d definitely recommend Contented Cats and will certainly be calling upon Carol and the Contented Cats team again next year!
Mrs H, Chesham August 2018


Carol and her team have looked after our boy, Blue, since he was a kitten. I was never comfortable with the idea of leaving him in a cattery, so felt really happy when I discovered Contented Cats. They came highly recommended in the area by the locals. Whenever we go away Carol not only takes care of Blue but makes sure our house is safe and secure too. Her cleaning standards of Blues room are high and he always gets a lot of love and attention from his carer. I enjoy our photo updates we are sent which I believe makes a real difference and on our return, Blue is always as happy as when we left him. 5 star rating from us. Mr & Mrs CJ, Berkhamsted  July 2018


Right from the first day, Carol and her Contented Cats team came to see us the cats took to them, so i know they are in great hands, always good to know.  Mr & Mrs N Berkhamsted June 2018


I have been using Contented Cats for many years now and receive regular updates from Carol and her team for the care of Max. He is very well looked after and i can fully relax when away from home knowing he is in good safe hands. Many thanks  P, Berkhamsted May 2018


Highly recommend Contented Cats, they offer a very high standard of thoughtful, competant and consistant care for my puss.  Mrs L, Berkhamsted May 2018


Carol and Contented cats are brilliant and we would be lost without them. We can go away secure in the knowledge that Bandit will be looked after by a cat lover and will be fussed and fed and medicated just as we do ourselves. Bandit is always very relaxed when we get home. Carol keeps us up to date while we are away which is very reassuring. Carol and her team have been looking after our cats for the last seven years and we are so pleased to have them.

John and Lisa May 2018


The service that Carol (my lovely cat lady) and the team offer is second to none.  Our cat  Zola is a fussy, spoilt and sometimes a grumpy old boy who needs medication morning and night and Carol and the team take care of his needs, give him so much attention and love he is certainly kept “contented” and healthy.  When we leave to go on holidays I now have a clear conscious as I know I’ve left him in his own home with the best care possible.  Cannot recommend Carol highly enough.  Sandra from Bovingdon April 2018


What do you look for in a cat caring service? Someone trustworthy, kind and reliable who loves to look after cats?

Well Carol is all that and more - she even keeps us up to date with texts and photos when we are away on how content and happy our Fred is.
We have used Carol’s service for five years.
She is so much apart of Freddy's life now I am sure he now looks forward to us being away just so he can have Carol visit him at home.’
David B (and Fred) Tring May 2018
Carol is superb at looking after our cat for extended absences. It is obvious that our cat flourishes when Carol cares for her and she is delighted to see her again. There have been a few incidents over the years, though the Contented Cat team have kept us fully informed and resolved the issues. They are flexible and able to accommodate varied timeframes. We are able to enjoy our holiday in the secure knowledge that our pet is being well cared for and looked after at home, rather than in a cattery. This is something the cat definitely prefers. We also appreciate that our home is being looked after too whilst we are away. We have recommended Contented Cats to a number of our friends who have received similarly excellent service. P and A, Tring  April 2018
Best arrangement I have had for looking after my pussies. Lovely ladies that I have every confidence in. Pussies agree. 
Mrs S Ashridge March 2018
“Carol and her team are very efficient and Rocky enjoyed his staycation with his daily visits from Contented Cats! As a diabetic cat it’s tricky to book him into a cattery and it’s reassuring to know he still has his important daily injection when we need to go away.” Mrs M, Berkhamsted Aug 2017


Thank you so much for watching our puss. She was happy to see us and looked well on our return, having you come in and seen her gives me peace of mind when away
as she really doesn't get on in kennels. Thanks again Mrs G, Ashridge. June 2017
Carol and her team recently looked after our 2 cats for a week while we were in the USA - they did a brilliant job. I've seen how great Carol is with cats that are new to her, and even our timid one who normally runs away from strangers was happy in her company after a very short time. It is such a great thing to have someone trustworthy look after our cats in their own environment, saving them for the need to be stuck in an unfamiliar cattery. We got regular updates and photos of them via WhatsApp, which was a real treat when we were missing them. We will definitely be using the services of Contented Cats in the future - highly recommended!  Mr B  Berkhamsted April 2017


I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful support you offered my patient’s pet when  they were in hospital.

You were approachable, kind and willing to go out of your way to ensure that the cat was well looked after. You offered regular updates about the cat and you even made sure that the owner was well informed of your input even during weekends when I was not working.

Your prices were good and you were mindful about ensuring that if there was no pet food, you were willing to provide this to alleviate any stress on the owner.

The owner of the pet was really happy with the service you provided. I will be happy to use your service again  in future and would not hesitate to recommend Contented Cats to anyone who needs an alternative Cattery service for their pets when they are away in hospital or on holiday.

Your help is much appreciated. Thank you  Mrs M Hemel Hempstead  Nov 2016

I'm so glad Carol was recommended to me to look after our two cats. Whenever we go away I can always be confident that she and her team will take brilliant care of them, even sending photos of how they are and what they've been up to. We always return to very happy, well looked after cats and it's so lovely and gives us such peace of mind being able to leave them in their own home knowing they'll receive such great care. Brilliant and friendly service for our VIPs! 
Mr & Mrs B, Northchurch  September 2016


Thanks for looking after 'Panda' so well over the years when we have been away on holidays. We know our big boy is so much happier at home being fed and 'fussed over' during his daily visits from Contented Cats. The regular updates we receive while we are away are also great for peace of mind, and we would recommend your reliable pet sitting services to anyone. 

Mr & Mrs A   Berkhamsted  August 2016

After 3 and a half weeks of being spoiled, cuddle and fed by Carol at Contented Cats whilst i was in Australia; Sherlock was rather pleased when I got home yesterday. Thank you.  

Miss B  Berkhamsted   February 2016


I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for caring for Tony and Cleo whilst I was on holiday. It gave me such peace of mind to know Cleo was being made a fuss of whilst Tony was unwell. I so appreciate your help and will most certainly come back to you again.  Thanks so much!    

Miss M Berkhamsted  Aug 2015



We were very happy with Carol’s caring services. She not only tended to our 2 cats but also took great care of an extended family hamster for an additional miniscule fee.Our cats were very happy and well looked after the whole time.  We both had text messages/reports every evening. Our pets had good fuss sessions every day.  All messes were cleaned and everything was ship-shape upon our arrival.We are planning next holiday again this year and, of course, Carol is included in the action-plan ;) She well deserves our trust.  Big thank you from our family and 3 very happy pets!!!    

Mrs & Mr G with Pixie, Phillip and tiny Lulu  August 2015



We  have used  Carol  for  a  number of years now  to look after our cat Dusty and keep an eye on our house every time we go on holiday. We have always found Carol to be trusting  and reliable discharging  her duty  with due  care and diligence. It  is a comfort to know that  while  we are away someone is looking  after our pet (s) and the house and keeping us updated.  During  winter 2010 while we  were away our house was flooded following a burst pipe.  As Carol had the key to the house she  attended the house immediately upon notification.  She assisted in stopping the water, save our furniture amongst other things and took Dusty to her house.  Carol never relaxes until  her client is back and confirms that they now have control of everything back.   Without the invaluable  support of Carol services our trips would be difficult to organise.  

Mr & Mrs G Berkhamsted April 2015


Carol and her team have been looking after my furry family for years. The service you receive from Contented Cats is superb - 100 percent reliable,  extremely efficient,  friendly, caring and very reasonably priced too! My Burmese, Bengals and Tabby are always in tiptop condition when I return from trips away and I have had peace of mind knowing they are being well looked after in the comfort of their own home. 

Mrs L, Aldbury  Dec 2014


I am so happy I met Carol!! She is an amazing cat sitter and now friend. Carol is very flexible and was available when I needed her last minute. She constantly updated me on how Zsa Zsa was doing with a quick text or a cheeky photo of them playing and having fun together. I definitely returned home to a happy and well looked after kitty and I would recommend Carol to anyone who is seeking a kind, caring and loving person to look after their pets worry free at a reasonable price. Thank you so much Carol, you are a life saver!

Miss M, Potters Bar  August 2014


Thanks for keeping a check on the boys it's a huge weight off my mind when we go way and really let's me relax.  

Mrs H  Tring


Just wanted to say thank you so much for looking after Inka while we were away and for taking care of fish, plants and birdfeeders etc. too.  It makes such a difference being able to go away for such a long time and know we can leave Inka at home and that  she will be well looked after instead of having to put her in a cattery and unsettle her.  We  appreciate the updates too and especially the photos…they were lovely.  Everything was fine when we got back and Inka seemed pleased to see us.  Thanks again for everything you all did.

 Mr & Mrs P  Tring  Sept 2014


I was very happy with the service provided and felt relaxed whilst on holiday in the knowledge that both Diablo and Ronnie where being well looked after, in fact, I don't even think they where too fussed when we arrived home - they had certainly been happy whilst we were away. Thank you for taking such good care of them! I would most certainly recommend Contented Cats to anybody that doesn't want to put their pet through the stress of a strange place whilst on their holidays. I am sure Diablo and Ronnie look forward to our holidays now more than we do!                                                              

Mr & Mrs P Hemel Hempstead


We were saved by Carol coming to our rescue when we were unable to find a place for our cat at the height of the holiday season. We had piece of mind knowing he was in a secure and very comfortable place. We cannot thank her enough and would say to anyone wanting the best for their cat to go to Contented Cats. 
Mr & Mrs C


Carol took great care of our cat whilst we went away for a few days. We'd not long had our cat, Scout and it was our first time leaving her. But we felt                                  completely relaxed and reassured. The regular text updates are a fab idea and provide immense comfort that your cat and house are being brilliantly cared for. Carol is kind, generous and lovely. We couldn't ask for more. We'll definitely be calling on Carol again. Having your cat looked after at home is a much better solution 
than a cattery and good value too. Thanks again Carol. 
Mrs B, Berkhamsted


We have used Carol on many occasions to look after our diabetic cat and have found him very happy and well when we return from our holidays. Also we are very reassured by regular text messages about his progress while we are away. We would recommend Carol to anyone needing peace of mind for holiday cat care. 
Mrs M Tring


It was so reassuring to have regular updates on a very contented cat.Tuck looks positively blissful in your photo’s and we now know her new love “ham” 
We are still up to our eyes in packing boxes but Tuck is having a lovely time exploring without the house being full of strangers and she’s soon settled in. 
Thanks for helping provide a reassuring home presence when our own home was upside down. All the best.                                                  Mrs D Berkhamsted


Thanks so much its nice to know that somebody is in the property every day just for general security as well as to care for my boys. 
Mrs A Berkhamsted


Carol provides an amazing service, our cats fruli and mocha get very stressed at the slightest bit of change but when we got back they were healthy and happy and well groomed, our house also looked better than when we left it! Carol did a marvellous job and even brought in our post! 
The cats obviously loved her and allowed us to have a worry free holiday!  Her texts while we were away put our minds at ease about leaving our two madams for the first time since we got them and I don't think they even noticed thanks to Carol's hard work and attention! 
P & S, Berkhamsted


I have to say that your service is a brilliant one and thank you very warmly from Lucy and me. 
To come home to a happy fed and watered cat with a clean litter tray was a real joy. You had so kindly combed her and left a report on her progress! 
Lucy Locket avoided the stress of a lovely but lonely cattery and what's more important is that she hasn't been sick which is the usual order of the day when I've been away.  What more can I say except a very big thank you. 
Mrs W - Aston Clinton


After my neighbour became ill 4 days before I was due to go away (leaving me with no one to look after my cat and chickens) my vet referred me to Carol at Contented Cats. Carol came to see me the following day and I was very pleased to let her look after the pets. 
There was a professional service throughout - Carol even sent me a few text messages whilst I was away letting me know how they all were (this was a lovely personal touch and although unexpected it was welcomed as my cat is now 16 yrs old and this eased any potential worry that I could of had). 
I wont hesitate is using Carol again to look after Saffi, and the chicks Bluebell and Hyacinth. 
Miss W, Wigginton


Carol provides an excellent, cat friendly service. We have used 'Contented cats' on multiple occasions and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. 
Mrs & Mrs W (and the felines S and Z) - Berkhamsted


Having only recently moved to Tring, we found Carol and Contented Cats through our local vets. On the occasions that we've used her, we've always come home to two blissed out and full-bellied cats and a lovely note detailing the fun and games they've had in our absence. And on the occasion that we sprang a leak while we were hundreds of miles away, Carol was a cast iron 100% above and beyond the call of duty brilliant help. We're so glad that we've found her and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Contented Cats' services to anyone. 
N & N - Tring


Contented Cats provided a seamless service, in fact I don't think either of our two cats noticed our abscense! In addition to this all the communication has been very professional and friendly. We will definately continue to use CC and are pleased to support such an excellent new business. 
Mrs C - Tring


My cat was diabetic and elderly but the care he received during our holiday was superb. I think he was a little disappointed when we returned! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Contented Cats to any cat owner.
Mrs D - Tring


Contented Cats is the purrfect cat care solution when I am away from home. 
Mrs W -  Wiggington


Thanks for providing such a brilliant service for our beloved Alfie, its a great relief to know when we are away you look after him so well 
in his own home. I would definately recommend contented cats to friends thanks again.
Mrs H - Berkhamsted


Contented Cats are the perfect people to entrust your beloved pets to. We have had several holidays and the level and standard of care was amazing, and far beyond the call of duty. We knew that they were truly safe, happy and in good hands. 
Mr & Mrs K - Berkhamsted 

I have two cats, but Contented Cats was less than the price of one cat at the local cattery. In fact the number of cats would not have affected the price - fantastic value! The care my two loved ones received was anything but economy though, both having a half hour playtime in their own home - there was none of the previous sulking when returning from a cage in the cattery. My first experience of Contented Cats, but definitely not my last. Highly recommended! 
Mrs J - Aldbury 

Contented cats was our best find this year. We had previously used a Cattery for 3 days and our cats did not talk to us for a week so when we went abroard I'm so glad we found contented cats. Our minds were completely reassured that kitty and copper would be well cared for and they loved being spoilt themselves for two weeks, and it saved us £100! 
Miss C - Tring 

It takes a great leap of faith to invite someone into your home while you are away to look after your cats. I am pleased to say that Carol does a wonderful job. Both our cats require medication which she administers as well as spend time with them. The bonus is that she is also keeping an eye on the house twice a day. 
Mr & Mrs M - Berkhamsted 2012

We use Contented Cats regularly and it gives us complete peace of mind to know that our cat is so well looked after and happy. He always looks very pleased with himself when we get home. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the Contended Cats team and we would recommend using them over a cattery any day of the week. 
Miss M - Hemel Hempstead 

We have used Contented Cats on a couple of occasions now and have been very happy with the service provided. We have peace of mind that our cat is being well looked after in the comfort of his own home. I would definitely recommend Contented Cats over a cattery. 
Miss B - Berkhamsted 

I had complete peace of mind whilst away and can highly recommend Contented Cats to take care of your cat and home. The personalised service was not only cheaper than a cattery, but more convenient too. 
Mr H - Aldbury 

Contented Cats never fail to go above and beyond the call of duty. We trust them with our home and our furkids. Tilly, Tali and Sephie all give a Five Fish rating! 
Mr & Mrs B - Berkhamsted Jan 2011

Excellent, personalised and friendly cat-feeding service. The lady who visits our cat is clearly a genuine cat-lover and she goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that our pet is well cared for while we are away. I would highly recommend Contented Cats. 
Mrs S - Berkhamsted 

Contented Cats personnel go out of their way to ensure that felines get the best possible care and also provide humans with reassuring information and feedback. I am so grateful they were able to extend my cat's period of care when Iceland's volcano eruption delayed my return from holiday by a week. 
Miss J - Berkhamsted

Contented Cats provide an exceptional service - friendly and helpful and above my expectations. Both my cats very happy with the service received! would be happy to recommend them to anyone. 
Miss G - Berkhamsted 

Alfie was a very contented cat on our return from holiday, even after a vet's visit whilst we were away. We couldn't have been happier with the service Carol provided and would recommend Contented Cats to anyone. 
Mr & Mrs M - Berkhamsted 

We couldn't have been happier with the service provided. Our cat was very happy too. Not only fed but cuddled each visit too. 
Mrs G - Tring  July 2011
