'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!

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.

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