Claire came highly recommended and has been absolutely brilliant. My elderly cat needs a special diet and medication twice daily and this has been no problem to Claire who fitted us in around other clients to get the timings right. She is very knowledgeable and clearly loves cats.
I no longer worry about leaving kitty when I go on holiday as I know that she is in safe hands and Claires daily updates and photos are very reassuring.

I have been with Holiday Kitty Care for years and all I can say is that there is no-one else I would ever ask to look after Mr Benjamin x
Simon Dow(Saturday, October 09 21 10:03 am BST)
Fantastic service, first and only service we have used since we moved to Newcastle in 2017. Very friendly, will always go out their way to help you if your circumstances change last minute, been telling anyone we know to use them if they need any recommendations.
Beth(Saturday, October 09 21 08:40 am BST)
Thank you to Claire and the team! We have used them to look after our two cats when we are away on multiple occasions now as we know our furry babies are in great hands. The booking system is easy to use, communication is prompt and clear, and we love the pictures sent to us on each visit!
We would highly recommend Holiday Kitty Cat Care to anyone!
Eleanor(Friday, October 08 21 07:28 pm BST)
Claire and the team have looked after my cat for a few years and are fantastic! They are always friendly and reliable, even when giving my picky cat his medication. They have also been really flexible and helped me out last minute when needed. I couldn't recommend them more!
Ciara(Friday, October 08 21 01:34 pm BST)
Amazing service from Claire and her team who have looked after both our cats on and off for 4 years. Always really flexible when plans change, and even when we once went away having forgotten to book a visit!
Denise Mahoney(Sunday, February 07 21 12:46 pm GMT)
Claire and her team have looked after our cat for several years and long will it continue. They go above and beyond with the service, very professional and we know our kitty is in safe hands.
Debbie wilkinson(Sunday, February 07 21 08:40 am GMT)
I had just started to use Holiday Kitty Care before lockdown but have booked again for some hopefull future trips!
My cats were looked after exactly as I care for them and the little messages and photos were really reassuring that my cats were okay.
Seonad(Monday, March 09 20 02:54 pm GMT)
I got lovely personalised messages from Joanna every visit, which really put me at ease. Tish is a shy cat so it was so lovely to hear that she had warmed to Joanna and I was free of worry to enjoy my time away. Thank you so much. Have been a customer for nearly a year now and think it's a brilliant service. Thank you again.
Sue(Sunday, March 01 20 05:09 pm GMT)
At last a proper home from home kitty care service for our furry friends. Joanna is really wonderful and goes above and beyond with her care and attention. Claire is such a dedicated owner and is very personable and helpful. Thank you so much! Bean may not show it but she really appreciates you! Having rescued Bean at six weeks, she’s now an elderly lady and only the best will do :)
Lauren(Tuesday, January 07 20 04:09 pm GMT)
Claire is fabulous! She took incredible care of our two boys while we were away over Christmas, going above and beyond. She really knows a lot about cats and was able to care for Loki when he got ill suddenly, and has helped us even after we returned. She is truly a gem!
Kate(Sunday, September 15 19 01:16 pm BST)
Claire and her team recently looked after my 2 cats for what was supposed to be a short trip away to visit my Mum. Due to a family emergency which occurred while I was away, the time they ended up caring for my cats almost doubled, and Claire was happy to deal with the situation as it changed, with no issue.
It was a difficult and stressful time as it was, but Holiday Kitty Cat Care really took the pressure off in terms of knowing that my girls were being well cared for at home, and that was one thing I didn't have to worry about - especially with the emails and photos I was being sent.
I came home to 2 very happy cats, and I'm so thankful for the brilliant service!
Thea(Sunday, August 25 19 08:06 pm BST)
Holiday Kitty Cat Care provides an amazing service. Their help has been invaluable, even in the distressing time when our cat was unwell. Their commitment to cats' welfare and wellbeing is visible everytime they come and sit our cat, and this results in him bein less stressed by our absence and us being confident that whatever happens he will be well looked after.
Rosario Aguilar(Friday, August 23 19 03:50 pm BST)
Claire and her team are amazing. I have to travel often because of work and I can relax knowing that Frida and Hobbes are in good hands. I receive a picture every day, giving me a peace of mind. Every time I come back home I find two happy cats!
Lisa(Monday, August 19 19 09:26 pm BST)
Claire and her team provided a wonderful service looking after our house cat, Smudge.
The daily updates and photos provided peace of mind. Knowing that Smudge was happy during the visits, the photos proved it as she looked so relaxed, meant we could enjoy our holiday without the guilt.
On our return we were greeted by a very happy chilled cat and a lovely note.
We will definitely be using this service again.
Thank you again Claire and team xx
Sarah Hall(Thursday, August 01 19 09:21 am BST)
Absolutely brilliant service. The daily e mails really put my mind at rest knowing my cat was ok and in excellent hands. Would recommend this service to anyone. Takes the stress out of putting the cat into a shelter/accommodation. Happy cat and a very happy owner.
Lisa Duncan(Sunday, July 28 19 11:06 am BST)
I highly recommend Holiday Kitty Cat Care. Returned home last week to two happy cats. One of our babies has terminal cancer and we were able to enjoy our holiday with a little less worry thanks to Jan going in daily and giving medication. Also Claire went over and above to provide cover at short notice and ensured Diesel and Jeff were happy and cared for. We even received photographs which helped us even more to relax whilst away. Will def be using again everytime we go away. Thanks Claire and Jan from Lisa, Gary, Diesel and Jeff x
Laura Elliott(Thursday, July 18 19 10:12 am BST)
It's hard going away and leaving our cat Zola at home, but knowing that Claire is there to look after her and keep us updated is wonderful. Claire is professional, friendly and helpful and we love getting photo updates! Claire really offers us peace of mind and the knowledge that Zola is well cared for and happy whilst we are away. Thank you for a great service x
Giles White(Monday, July 15 19 04:27 pm BST)
Have nothing but good things to say. I always worry when i leave Nancy and Leo for periods of time, mainly due to previous bad experiences with cat feeders. However, i fear no more. Frequent updates, with photos and comments ease the worry and when i come back, they seem very happy and content. 5 star plus service. The kitty care staff (Claire and Tony) that i have dealt with, clearly understand pets and their owners, which again shows that you are dealing with the right company. I will be using be using them for as long as possible, no other company comes close!!! Outstanding and thank you guys!!
Laura(Tuesday, July 09 19 11:53 am BST)
We’ve used Holiday Kitty Cat Care a few times this year including for almost 2 weeks in March and from the moment Claire met our two little monsters Ichi and Sasha I knew they’d be alright, Ichi is normally scared of new people but was perfectly happy around Claire. The regular updates and photos are great and I don’t worry about them as I know I’ll come back to happy relaxed cats. I’m so pleased to have found them!
Ann Mccallum(Saturday, June 08 19 02:40 pm BST)
Claire provides 5 star care for my beautiful babies Elliott, Silke and Lionel. Elliott has a heart condition and needs to be medicated 3 times a day I go away on trips knowing he is in the safest hands possible. This is so much better for them being in their own home rather than a Cattery, Claire always sends photo's of my rascals which light me up every time, I am so delighted I have found Holiday Kitty Cat Care they do an amazing job. Love and thanks for a great service Claire and Team x
Emma(Monday, May 06 19 09:17 am BST)
Brilliant service from the team again - home to find two happy cats and received some lovely photos and updates whilst we were away. Love this - means such a lot to know that the cats are happy being looked after in their own home whilst we aren’t there! Thanks so much! X
Cara(Monday, April 29 19 01:39 pm BST)
Claire is amazing 😻🥇. She looked after our cats so well 😸😸. Claire went over and above to ensure they were catered for and already arranging my next trip away and will book Claire everytime. Very professional and caring. Thanks for taking such good care of my cats. They are looking forward to seeing you again soon 🐱🐱
andrew ingram(Thursday, April 18 19 02:30 pm BST)
We have been using Holiday Kitty Cat Care for a while now and would not trust our lovely two pets with anyone else. One of our two little ones has many medical conditions, which need careful monitoring and medication. If it was not for the care and trust we have in Holiday Kitty Care Cat sitting we would be unable to leave them for even the shortest of duration. We even get lovely photographs! Highly recommended!
Hannah(Tuesday, April 02 19 10:00 am BST)
We recently went on holiday and used the service for the first time and both ourselves and the cats couldn’t have been happier! We love our indoor kitties and have had difficulty in moving them out to relatives and asking relatives to stay was no longer possible. Both cats tend to be quite nervous at times and hide when strangers come but when Claire turned up for the initial meet and key handover they were circling her legs like they’d known her all their life. We knew they’d be fine and we were given text and email updates with their photos and stories of what they’d been up to now and again. We were able to relax and enjoy our holiday knowing they were safe and happy at home. We will definitely use the service again.
Sue Craggs(Tuesday, March 19 19 10:26 pm GMT)
I used Holiday Kitty Cat Care for the first time this year to care for Edith and Tutu while I was on holiday . Claire is totally committed dedicated and passionate to providing an excellent service and I cannot praise her highly enough. It was a pleasure to meet Claire and she made me feel very confident that the girls would be well cared for and loved while I was away. The regular updates and photos were nice to receive. I came home to 2 very happy and content cats . I will definitely be using Holiday Kitty Cat Care again and have no hesitation in recommending. Thank you so much Claire you’re a star.
Sarah Hirst(Monday, March 18 19 06:17 pm GMT)
I love knowing that I’m leaving my cat in good hands and although I know it’s not always possible it’s lovely being able to get a photo whether this is on fb or to my phone. It’s that little bit of extra reassurance. I’ve used this service for a few years this summer and will continue to do so so thank you for taking such good care of Benny!
meryl manasMATY5T(Tuesday, January 29 19 08:50 pm GMT)
Holiday Kitty Cat Care is outstanding.🏆🥇
Clair is totally committed to giving professional, individual and adoring care to her furry charges. You will never worry again, once you have all experienced the level of care and communication Clair gives. She truly is a real Mary Poppins, nothing is too much trouble for her charges well being. We have two medically needy darlings, who need insulin and subcutaneous fluids twice daily. It was absolutely wonderful knowing that no matter what, Clair would be there and taking care of them with love and perfection. Clair is also very astute and picks up on any changes the purrkins may display, discussing the plan of action with you immediately. We were away for almost 3 weeks and instead of comming home to stressed unhappy and probably ill kitties, (had they been else where) we were met by beautiful, bright eyed and bushy tailed, very happy babies! Everything was perfect and beautifully clean and sorted. I can not recommend Clair and her team highly enough.
Thank you so much, you are🌟😻🌟
Gema Martin-Ordas(Friday, January 11 19 10:59 am GMT)
I went away for a week during xmas and Claire and Courtney took great care of my two cats. I got updates and pictures of the cats every two days--plus the messages that Claire sent me. Plus, my cats got a little xmas present. They are a really good team and I will definitely be using them again.
Rebecca(Tuesday, January 01 19 07:52 pm GMT)
We got recommended here by our vet, so glad we did. We needed help over the Xmas time with our house rabbits and we only had 5days notice. However Claire was so lovely over the phone and in person. She covered 4 days for our two bun buns and we came home to very happy bunnys! Couldn’t rate this any higher. We even received updates too which put my mind at ease :) I would say a great price for excellent care of our fur babies. Will 100% be using them again whenever we need a bunny sitter haha
Kitty(Tuesday, January 01 19 07:42 pm GMT)
We came back to a very happy cat after a week away whilst he was looked after by Claire and her team. We have used a few different cat sitters and Claire is very professional and it was reassuring to meet her in person. The regular updates whilst we were away were great. We have already booked in the next trip away!
Michaela Gill(Wednesday, December 19 18 09:18 am GMT)
I cannot praise Claire & her team enough. They are the best cat-sitting service I have used by a million miles. The team will go over & above to help with any problems & always provide a professional but very friendly service. I wouldn’t use anyone else
Kate Townend(Monday, December 10 18 04:12 pm GMT)
Left our 18 year old Cat for four nights with Claire and her fabulous team looking after him.
We’ve come home to a contented little old lad who looks great.
Claire kept in touch with us every day and nothing was too much trouble.
We will definitely be asking her again ! Fantastic
Denise Mahoney(Monday, October 08 18 11:27 am BST)
Great service Claire - Frankie is so well looked after when we're away. She doesn't really know we've gone as she is so well looked after. Happy little kitty loves Holiday Kitty Cat Care xxx
Bill(Monday, October 01 18 05:22 pm BST)
Our cat is 18 and grumpy but since Claire and her team have looked after him when we have been on holiday he has obviously been very happy and content when we have been away and we could not be happier with the care he has been given Thank You Claire
Susan Richardson(Wednesday, September 19 18 11:02 pm BST)
We have 3 cats 2 Oldies Benji and Belle, and the young rebel Albat 3years old. Benji who is 18 years is a rescue cat, my best friend for 16 years. he has cancer and thyroid issue which he needs daily medication.
Claire provided a truly excellent service looking after my fur babies while I took a break. I came home to content relaxed and happy cats. Truly well looked after. Thank you so very much I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Holiday kitty cat care and will definitely look to them for help again.
Mark Taylor(Thursday, September 06 18 09:29 pm BST)
Claire was perfect for our needs, Both cats were well look after, we had constant updates and photos whilst we were away. We were only in England so was happy to receive the updates. Skye and Beau' s needs were all catered for and when we returned they seemed very content and happy. Obviously they missed us but they were not stressed in any way. Thanks Claire.
Sarah(Sunday, September 02 18 06:18 pm BST)
Thank you Claire for looking after Minnie so well while I was away! Despite very stormy weather on the first night, you put my mind at ease with regular updates and I came back to a relaxed and happy cat. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Holiday Kitty Cat Care to others and will certainly be using your services again x
Sally(Wednesday, August 29 18 04:15 pm BST)
First time using a cat sitting service & we arrived home to 2 very relaxed cats!! They've obviously loved being looked after in their own home by a Claire & her team. Loved the regular updates and photos! It was also really nice to know that someone had been in & out of the house so it felt more welcoming than previous years. We'll definitely be using Holiday Kitty Care again.
Angela Lawrence(Sunday, August 19 18 10:47 pm BST)
I cant thank and recommend this service enough they have been amazing at looking after my gorgeous cat Chelsea. Claire and Jan did a wonderful job and Chelsea had a ball.
Adele(Sunday, August 19 18 05:18 pm BST)
Used for the first time recently and would definitely use again. Claire sent a text and pics which was a really nice touch and very reassuring . Thankyou Claire x
Lindsay R Harper(Sunday, August 19 18 08:31 am BST)
Thank you to Claire for caring for my young cat, this was the first time we used her service and also the first time we left the cat on her own. I wasn't sure how it would work out, but pussy was totally fine. I was very impressed that Claire was happy to adapt to giving medicine also, which was not expected but also manage the downsides of having a fluffy cat with gut problems! Such a relief to know that nothing was a bother. Thank you Claire, we'll be using you again.
Michaela Gill(Friday, August 10 18 09:14 pm BST)
We have just moved into the area & were very worried about finding someone who would care for our beautiful boy, Alfie. Several people recommended Claire & I have to say that from the moment I met her, I knew she was exactly the right person we were looking for. Claire clearly loves cats & is very warm & friendly but totally professional. We have found her to be both efficient & responsive, as well as sensitive to our needs. We were anxious about leaving Alfie but Claire sent messages & a video to reassure us while we were away. The online booking system is also really easy to use. We definitely won't be using anyone else but the lovely Claire.
Helen(Monday, August 06 18 11:38 am BST)
Claire was brilliant at looking after our precious cat. She cane to meet her before our holiday and instantly they took to each other so I felt very confident leaving our home and cat on her safe hands. While we were away Claire sent us pictures, and messages and was free to chat about anything. All round the service was brilliant and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use kitty care again. Thanks Claire xxx
Nikki Gallagher(Saturday, August 04 18 01:49 pm BST)
Used Holiday Kitty's services for the first time this summer with our new kitten. Couldn't fault the service from start to finish. In our initial meeting Claire answered all our questions and gave great suggestions which would make the kittens experience of being left alone for the first time a pleasant one. Whilst away we got regular updates and photos and Maggie was taken to the vets for a preplanned booster appointment. Claire even called in an extra time to ensure Maggie was ok. We arrived home and Maggie looks in better condition than when we left. 5* service. Can't thank them enough. Highly recommend.
Alan John Lumsden(Monday, July 23 18 11:23 am BST)
Brilliant. It doesn't matter whether I'm away for a day or weeks. I always return to find two laid back cats. Well Cared for and fed in my absence.
Excellent service from Kitty Cat Care.
Carole McCourt(Monday, July 09 18 07:32 pm BST)
I used this service for the 1st time this weekend. What a pleasure to be able to go away knowing my pets were cared for by a professional knowledgeable person. I came home to 4 happy fur babies who clearly have been spoiled rotten. I would recommend Claire to anyone as peace of mind is priceless! Thank you I will certainly be using you again the next time I go away
Gillian Dodsworth(Sunday, June 10 18 03:39 pm BST)
Excellent service from start to finish. Our cat was well looked after, even him pulling his usual 24 walkabout stints didnt put Claire off. Thank you, would definitely use again and will certainly recommend x
Kate(Saturday, May 05 18 09:02 pm BST)
Claire looked after my 2 kitties for nearly 2 weeks- which I would consider a pretty long time for me to be away from them. I was really nervous about leaving them as I've never left them without a friend cat-sitting before and they're not always the best with new people.
When I arrived home the cats were happy and well looked after, and Claire had put my mind at rest while I was away by sending me messages and photos despite my phone being a disaster (thanks for the persistence Claire!!)
I will definitely be using Holiday Kitty Cat Care again in the future!!
Emma(Wednesday, May 02 18 09:46 am BST)
This was the first time I used Holiday Kitty Cat Care and we are so happy with the service that Claire provided. Our home was left lovely and clean and our cat was looked after very well. I would use Claire’s services again and definitely recommend her!
Angela McGrane(Wednesday, May 02 18 07:11 am BST)
We have two very nervous cats who typically will hide from anyone they don’t know and anything at all which is unfamiliar, so leaving them for holidays is very difficult. Claire absolutely ‘gets’ them and it really puts our mind at rest knowing they have the best possible care while we’re away. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to look after them now.
Linda Wimmer(Tuesday, May 01 18 10:13 pm BST)
We had to go abroad twice since January for several weeks at a time and were worried our 9 year old cat Gaia would not take it well, especially as we had just moved house but Claire did an amazing job not only at keeping Gaia well fed but also happy. We received regular updates with pictures and even a video which was reassuring. We went abroad for a medical emergency in my family but Claire was ok with the very short notice and kept us informed about Gaia's activities and well being during our absence. Claire obviously loves cats and knows her job well, we won't hesitate to use Holiday Kitty Cat Care again in the future.
Joselyn Rickwood(Tuesday, May 01 18 08:40 pm BST)
Thank you Claire for the fantastic job of looking after Alfie, he looked fantastic when we got home and it’s not that easy to get his tablets down him, I can’t thank you enough your so caring and felt totally confident to go on holiday, love Joselyn and Alfie xxx
Allie Young(Sunday, April 08 18 04:12 pm BST)
Claire and the team were great as we left our cat on her own for the first time last week. We had good communication and even a couple of photos of our cat which set our minds at rest. We returned home to a very content cat who had been really well looked after! We would recommend this service very highly and would definitely use again in the future.
Helen(Friday, April 06 18 09:03 pm BST)
Again Claire came up trumps caring for my lovely Alice .... she txt me and sent photos to keep me from freting about her. Top class A+ Thanks Claire and her team Xxx
Sophie Smart(Monday, April 02 18 05:31 pm BST)
We're very over protective cat parents. But having Claire come to our house for an initial visit and seeing how well she interacted with our two boys we felt at ease straight away.
Upon arriving back from our weekend away our boys were their usual happy selves and the house was spotless. We will definitely be using holiday kitty cat care again. It's been so convenient and has been the first time I've not worried about the cats whilst we've been away since we've received lots of pictures of them looking so happy. Thanks for all the help!
Verity West(Friday, March 16 18 03:38 pm GMT)
We used Claire for the first time last week, and we were really impressed. We have 3 slightly disfunctional cats and Claire made a huge effort to ensure they were ok the week we were away. This extended to making a second trip one day when the timid cat had hidden in the garage, as Claire wanted to make sure she was ok. Claire clearly loves and understands cats. Our house was even vacuumed to remove the cat hair for our return!
Pete Bell(Tuesday, March 13 18 07:29 pm GMT)
A fantastic service - really pleased I found your website. Will definitely be using Holiday Kitty Cat Care again if I go away. Thanks!
Simon Dow(Thursday, March 08 18 07:30 pm GMT)
After being stuck at the last minute due to unforseen circumstances, Claire and her team came to the rescue for looking after Jeff for two weeks. To come home from holiday to your cat as happy as can be says volumes on Claire and the team. Regular updates were received during our holiday and he even had some extra toys to play with while we were away. If you are unsure on who to use as there is many options out there, I would strongly suggest to use Claire and her team. We will be using them time and time again this year and on.
Eleanor(Thursday, March 01 18 06:51 pm GMT)
I have used Holiday Kitty Cat Care twice now, for both short trips and longer trip of 3-4 weeks. Claire and her team have taken great care of my cat. He is always happy and healthy when I return and they are great at sending through updates to let you know how your cat is getting. I will definitely use them again and recommend to anyone!
Louise(Sunday, February 25 18 08:22 pm GMT)
Claire and the team are absolutely brilliant and you couldn't ask for a better service. For our holiday last year we hated the idea of leaving our new kitten in a cattery and looked for a different solution. When we met Claire we knew this was the only option we wanted to use. We have used Claire's services multiple times since and every time we are away we can totally relax with full peace of mind our furry baby is getting well looked after in his own home.
Dawn Price(Sunday, February 18 18 05:04 pm GMT)
The service provided was excellent. Tony and Claire mae sure our fur babies were well looked after for a week. Even persuading our huffy Tommy who was grounded for a week to have a pet. Highly recommended.
Dawn(Friday, February 16 18 08:06 pm GMT)
This was the first time i used this service Claire and i went into detail about what was my cats requirements were, i got photos of my cat with a txt messages while i was away and when i came back my cat was very relaxed and her feed/litter area was tidy and clean i would recommend and not hesitate to use your service again thank you
Stephanie fisher(Friday, February 16 18 03:37 pm GMT)
Thanks so much great service and peace of mind
David(Friday, February 16 18 11:53 am GMT)
This is the first time we've used a cat sitting service, and our cats had a great time with Tony. He sent us an update every time he went in to see them and took some very mischievous looking pictures of them. We enjoyed seeing them on the Holiday Kitty Facebook page as well. We will definitely use Holiday Kitty in the future!
John(Wednesday, February 14 18 11:21 am GMT)
Everything was spot on. Thank you Claire, Jan and Tony for a professional, excellent job and for giving us peace of mind.
100% reliable and highly recommended
Linda Craig(Tuesday, January 02 18 11:38 pm GMT)
This is the first time I've used a cat care service whilst on holiday over Christmas. I met with Claire who took time to talk to me about Carlo and his needs and what she would provide. I was emailed during my holiday to let me know Carlo was fine and that he was being very social. This really put my mind at rest. When I returned Carlo was not stressed at all which had happened when he was put in a chattery. I wouldn't hesitate to use Claire's service again and would recommend her services to any other cat owners considering this service
Jill Simmons(Thursday, December 28 17 03:04 pm GMT)
This is the first time I have used a service like this so I was very nervous I must be honest, but I'd like to reassure anyone reading this that Claire provides a fantastic service. My cat looked healthy and happy on return and I could see she had been cared for to a high standard. Claire is trustworthy and I will without a doubt use her during my next holidays. Happy customer 😊
Louise(Wednesday, December 27 17 02:48 pm GMT)
Perfect cat-sitting service over the Christmas period! The cats even got an xmas present on Christmas Day. Hassle-free with peace of mind. Thank you!
Adianna(Tuesday, December 05 17 03:24 pm GMT)
I couldn't have asked for a better cat carer than Claire. My partner and I were VERY nervous to leave our Bengal kitten Bijou while on a long holiday. Not only is she a rumbustious and overly curious kitten she her Bengal characteristics can be quite overwhelming. Claire put us at ease immediately and Bijou absolutely loves her. While away we never had to worry with wonderful updates and when our flight was delayed due to weather Claire was there to save the day and take care of our fur baby at the last minute! Bijou is always happy and healthy when we arrive home. We have since left her in the good hands of Claire and her team and can honestly say that we won't use anyone else. Claire is not just a special cat carer but exceptionally genuine and personable. I would recommend her and her team to anyone. Thank you, thank you Claire!
Ricky(Monday, November 20 17 09:50 am GMT)
My previous cat-sitter who gave years of excellent service streamlined their business earlier this year and as such was no longer able to care for my three. In the interim I relied on family who live further away to help me out, but then I was forced to find a new alternative sitter, which I was dreading. Luckily we found Claire and I am assured she really is a true cat person, like ourselves and her business is solely about cat care. Our three are a funny bunch and she has taken on the challenge with bravado. Let's just say one of them in particular has very unusual needs and this has not phased Claire yet. I have used Claire only twice so far, but I have been very pleased and the cats seem very content upon our return, which is the important thing. I will continue to use the service of Claire for as long as she will have us. I am hoping her patience is limitless! Thank you for the card and welcome home gift.
Rob Short(Thursday, November 16 17 05:24 pm GMT)
I’ve been using Holiday Kitty Cat Care for a while now and I would highly recommend them. I used to put my cat into a Cattery which used to stress my cat and I used to worry about leaving her there. But now she is much more content in her own home and I’m much more relaxed that she is well looked after. The prices are great and they are always available.
Caroline(Thursday, November 16 17 02:56 pm GMT)
I'm so pleased I found Claire! She was recommended by a colleague, and I can now recommend her too. We were really nervous to leave our cat when we went on holiday but Claire sent us lots of photos and lots of reassurance morning and night. And our cat loved her! She's very shy but was immediately interested in Claire. They were immediate friends! I'll definitely use Claire's services again in the future. :)
Marie Turnbull(Thursday, November 16 17 02:28 pm GMT)
Claire really takes good care of our 4 cats when we go away . It gives us such piece of mind to know that our cats are not only being fed they are also getting cuddles and attention . 5* service - 100% recommended xx
Stef(Thursday, November 16 17 11:59 am GMT)
Claire has been looking after Gaspi for nearly 3 years now and we cannot fault her service in any way! Before Claire, we used to take him to a cattery but he is noticeably much happier after a weekend of visits than he was after a weekend away. She is always to quick to respond and organising visits is very easy. I really appreciated her coming over to meet Gaspi before we went away the first time, and the insurance documents etc helped with peace of mind on that first visit. As long as we live in Newcastle we'll always use Holiday Kitty Cat Care!

After a really stressful experience with a cattery last year, Claire's been looking after my two cats. So pleased to have found her, she's fantastic! I never have to worry knowing the cats are looked after so well when we're away. One of my boys can be a little tinker when I'm not there but Claire is fantastic with him. Always come home to very happy cats. Couldn't recommend enough!!

Claire was great with our cats. She kept us updated frequently, and put or minds at rest. A Great service that you can trust, where your cats will be looked after while you are away. The process of hiring this service was also very good, they made a home visit before so you can meet them. Definitely recommend and would use again.

Once again a 5 star service from Claire and team. 2 very happy cats and 2 very happy owners. Thank you x

Being an over-protective cat mam, who has slight ocd and has the cats in a set daily routine, I was naturally nervous leaving them for the first time in the hands of a non-family member. I needn't have been! Claire was great with them!
One of my cats isn't keen on people he's not used to, and will usually sit in the garden until they've gone, but Claire won him over and he quite happily let her sit near him and stroke him. I was stunned!
I really appreciated the regular updates to hear they were OK, as this helped us relax, knowing they were fine back home.
It was great meeting Claire on the initial home visit. It's obvious how much she loves cats, and it was lovely hearing her stories of other cats she looks after.
Unfortunately I don't have another holiday booked (yet), but we'll definitely be calling upon Claire's services again next time.

It was lovely to return from holiday to find Henry, our elderly cat, very happy and relaxed. Claire has been fantastic especially as Henry needs medication twice per day. It was great getting pics of him while we were away. Would highly recommend Claire and we will definitely call on her for future hols.
Pablo(Wednesday, August 30 17 05:07 pm BST)
Our cat was much more relaxed after not having to go to a cattery. Furthermore, Claire kept us updated with messages and pictures, and that made everything more relaxing for us as well.
Emma(Tuesday, August 29 17 08:20 pm BST)
Back from holiday to find two v happy cats well fed and looked after by Claire and her team. Felt very comfortable with her upon our first phone chat and even more so when she came to meet the cats and discuss their requirements. We were Kept updated with messages and lovely photos whilst away and the fish were also fed for us. Have already booked in for our next trip away and would recommend to any cat lover worried about leaving their little ones. Brilliant service - Thankyou!! 😻
Katherine & David(Tuesday, August 29 17 07:52 am BST)
Very happy with the care our four furries received. Claire kept us updated while we were away & the provisions left in the fridge were very much appreciated when returning in the early hours of the morning. We can't recommend Holiday Kitty Cat Care enough.
Rebecca Forrest(Monday, August 28 17 05:52 pm BST)
We used Claire for the first time this weekend, having only had a rescue cat Annie a few months we were nervous about using a cattery as she's had a rough start to life and has only just fully settled with us. It was such a relief to know she could be at home but still be cared for. Brilliant service will definitely use again and recommend to friends.
Craig & Susan(Friday, August 18 17 02:00 pm BST)
We cannot recommend Claire's service highly enough. Upon meeting her you can clearly see she has a huge passion for cats and the job she does. Her colleague Tony who assists with appointments also left us copies of some wonderful photos he'd taken of our Gizmo. These were accompanied by a few essential food supplies when we returned from our holiday which was an unexpected and lovely touch.
If you love your cat, don't go anywhere else.
James & Denise(Monday, July 10 17 04:48 pm BST)
Can't recommend Claire highly enough. Kept us continually updated with messages and photos whilst we were on holiday and returned home to a spotless house and breakfast supplies. Clearly has a love of her job and caring for kitties. Thanks again, James & Denise
Bridget(Thursday, July 06 17 04:28 pm BST)
This service is invaluable. I can go away with work or on holiday and be fully confident my cats will get medication on time, be fed and looked after really well. I'm a very happy customer!!
Sasha(Thursday, July 06 17 03:07 pm BST)
We had previously used a cattery until a friend recommended Claire. Skinny cat is no longer stressed when we go on holiday and it puts our minds at rest getting a message or photo of Skinny when we are away! And the litter gets changed... bonus!!
Ciara and Peter(Thursday, July 06 17 02:52 pm BST)
We recently moved to Whitley Bay leaving behind a cat sitter who we'd trusted to look after Bugsy for nearly ten years. The first cat sitter we found in our new home sadly let us down after her first visit. Then we found Claire via a facebook recommendation and have used her ever since. Bugsy's indifference to us when we get back after she's been looking after him says it all! We're really pleased to have found Holiday Kitty Catcare
Denise Mahoney(Wednesday, July 05 17 09:12 pm BST)
We had never used a cat-sitting service and we were fortunate to choose Claire to look after Frankie,our new arrival, back in January. Claire has looked after Frankie numerous times now and we have a great relationship as Claire is such a caring person and is definitely born to do the job she does to perfection. They get on so well, I actually believe Frankie misses Claire when we get home!
Carrie(Wednesday, July 05 17 08:27 pm BST)
We couldn't ask for a better service from Claire - nothing is too much trouble. Not only does she do a great job looking after our two kitties when we go away (they don't even seem to notice we've gone!), she even went above and beyond to find the rightful owner of a lost cat we had temporarily cared for. It is clear Claire loves and is brilliant with cats. I'd recommend her to everyone
Fabulous service from Claire. I'd recommend her to any cat owners who want their cats well looked after when you can't be at home to do the looking after yourself
Marie Turnbull(Wednesday, July 05 17 07:48 pm BST)
Claire really loves the cats in her care . I have complete peace of mind leaving my four fur babies to be looked after by Claire when I am away - she goes above and beyond what one might expect xxx
Irene Mcgill(Friday, May 19 17 04:04 pm BST)
Would recommend Claire to all cat owners, (first time we have used her service) we were pleased on our return from holiday to find same happy cats and a lovely gesture of bread milk and biscuits in the fridge, thank you. Claire is now our go to cat sitter.
Sarah(Thursday, May 11 17 02:32 pm BST)
I would recommend Holiday Kitty Cat Care to absolutely anyone and everyone. I'm so pleased to have found this service so that now I can go away without worrying. It's not just a case of the cats being fed or let out, because they also they need love, attention, and someone to notice if they were unwell, not eating, or haven't come home. This service offers all of that and more. I 100% trust that my cats are in the best hands (probably even better than when they're left with me!) and wouldn't hesitate to use this service or recommend it to anyone! Thank you so much from Sarah and also big thank you on behalf of Terrie, Molly and Felix 😀😺 x
Linda Drew & Kerry Drew(Monday, May 08 17 05:30 pm BST)
Thank you Claire!
I can not recommend Claire enough she really put our minds at ease, kept us up to date throughout our holiday as to how our boys (2 cats and a house bunny) were doing. Milk, bread biscuits and brownies were waiting for us when we arrived home, this was bliss after a long journey.
The boys were relaxed and happy when we arrived home and Claire managed well with Harley's (the bunny) idiosyncrasies- he still thinks hes a cat!
Everyone was pleased to see her when she returned the door keys.
Holiday kitty cat care provides a first class service, which we highly recommend.
Claire you're a star, thank you.
Caroline(Friday, April 21 17 08:37 pm BST)
10/10 I felt at ease with Claire she made it possible for us to relax on holiday without worrying about our cats. Knowing they were in safe hands in there own home. Thank you xx
Helen(Sunday, April 16 17 04:59 pm BST)
Thanks Claire for your kindness and understanding I was a bit apprehensive about leaving my lovely Alice but was well reassured by Claire before and when I was away with photos and updates I came home to a happy and contented kitty Claire you are a star will be using your service again in the near future A+ Keep up the good work xxxx
Clare Townsend(Friday, April 14 17 11:07 am BST)
We recently arranged a surprise birthday trip for my mam's 80th with the whole family going so no one to look after her cats. I found Claire through a friends recommendation & I was not disappointed. Claire went along with the whole surprise plan and we managed to arrange a house visit without giving the game away. On the first night away we got a photo and message from Claire to let us know that the cats were ok & it was lovely to see that Doodle, who is a very nervous cat, was actually in the same room as Claire. She also messaged to check that we had got home safe & to make sure the cats would be looked after. When we did get back we found the place spotless, I think Claire must have even hoovered up the cat hair, which we certainly weren't expecting.The curtains had been opened & closed & the post brought in too. While its lovely to be able to go away knowing your pets are well looked after it's an added bonus knowing that your house is also looked after. We would certainly use Claire in the future & would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone. Thanks again, Clare.
Philippa(Sunday, April 02 17 09:46 am BST)
I couldn't recommend Claire enough. She is everything you would want in a cat sitter - professional, reliable, kind and most importantly she really love cats! When I was away over Christmas she looked after my two cats for a number of weeks. They were well cared for and seemed very happy and calm when I got back. Claire had also cleaned my flat and left me some milk and bread - fantastic! Furthermore when one of my cats recently went missing she gave me a lot of very good advice and even helped search the streets for him. She goes above and beyond what she needs to. I will definitely be using Claire again.
Glenn Banks(Monday, March 27 17 09:29 pm BST)
Claire looks after our temperamental cat Toots when we are off on our travels. Toots is a frisky little thing and takes a while to trust people. Claire has spent lots of time and patience nurturing her relationship with Toots and now they're best pals. We were always weary about leaving Toots in the past but now we've found Claire all our worries have gone. It's great to find someone who loves their job and goes over and above what's expected. Claire is truly a Super Nanny for cats.! Thanks Claire ××
Helen Thompson(Thursday, February 23 17 04:41 pm GMT)
Claire is fantastic! We were away for 4 nights, leaving our two cats for the first time and I couldn't be happier with the service we received from Holiday Kitty Cat Care. Claire is so lovely and incredibly dedicated to her job. She immediately puts you at ease with a home visit before you leave and continues with the same excellent standards throughout her time with your cats. Claire even helped us out when we had issues with our alarm while we were away. I can't recommend Claire highly enough and wouldn't hesitate to book her services again. 5 stars from all of us, including our cats, Charlie and Lucy! Home to happy cats, a clean house and lovely welcome home card from Claire! Excellent service! Thank you! x
Rob(Monday, February 06 17 06:09 pm GMT)
Rob T As a very nervous owner of a very precious cat,I must confess I was ultra wary about having someone come in and see to my pet also ,a stranger in the house ?!! Shock Horror!!but prince like his own house and his own place .He was very unsettled when I used a cattery and that was for a three /four day period away.Iwas off to the U.S of A. this time for a much longer period.Needless to say I was nervous about the whole thing.I shouldnt have,Claire was very business like re what would be done in my absence but more than that she cares for her clients ,the ones with tails and doesnt forget the ones without I returned to find a calmer cat than ever before and a little welcome basket of he essential items to have when youve had a thirteen hour journey(ps next whole meal bread please though the birds enjoyed the farmhouse loafhe he ) and yes there will be a next time Claire was exemplary and hopefully ignored the mess and the state of my home Her focus was on princes welfare and thats how it should be .I have no hesitation recommending her .Rob T
Denise Mahoney(Saturday, January 21 17 07:56 pm GMT)
Met with Claire before leaving Frankie for a couple of days. She couldn't have been in better hands! Professional service and we're happy to recommend. Have already booked Claire for future dates.
Estelle(Monday, January 09 17 01:04 am GMT)
I was so nervous and worried about leaving Gimli and Missy I nearly cancelled our holiday. Twice. Then I met Claire on a recommendation from a friend. She is truly catnip in human form. My fluff babies were looked after impeccably. I can't thank or recommended Claire enough. She, and her service are five star.
Sarah(Thursday, December 08 16 10:21 pm GMT)
I'm so happy with the service and care that Claire has provided, both to me and my cat, Margot. Claire looked after Margot for two weeks and kept me posted and reasurred for the whole time.
It's very clear that Claire is a cat lover and goes above and beyond to ensure the cats she looks after are happy and cared for. She was even happy to open/close our blinds, turn the TV on for Margot through the day and send me photographs via facebook.
This was the first time I have left my cat alone and I was very worried and apprehensive but I needn't have worried - Margot is just as I left her, completely calm, relaxed and cared for. Thank you so much Claire, I won't hesitate to book my next holiday now, knowing Margot has a friend for life to look after her!
Chris and Lesley(Sunday, November 27 16 04:45 pm GMT)
If you're thinking of using Claire's pet sitting service, please don't hesitate. Tilly our cat had a great time being fussed and cared for. Also regular messages and photos from Claire were the purrfect reassurance for us while we were away. Came home to a happy cat and a tidy home.
She goes above and beyond what we'd expected. Thank you
Shawn Fairless(Monday, October 17 16 04:29 pm BST)
Claire looked after our 3 cats for three weeks. Our cats certainly weren't the easiest to look after as they don't get on at all. Claire could not have done more for them. She kept us informed at all
times as to what was going on and she even took Pip to the vets to get a tick removed. We came home to a clean and contented house. She water our plants and even supplied us with a little hamper on
our return. She is certainly 5* and I would recommend her to anyone.
Kathryn Allan(Thursday, October 13 16 04:16 pm BST)
Claire has done a great job (again) looking after my cats - Edward who is diabetic & needs insulin injections twice a day, George an ex-feral cat who is frightened of everything !, Heather &
youngster Jenny as well as my 3 foster cats who she very kindly does without charge to the charity. They were all very happy & chilled out on my return. Thank you very much Claire.
Danielle(Friday, October 07 16 06:20 pm BST)
From the minute I met Claire I knew my Charlie would be in the right hands. She looked after him for a week whilst we were on holiday and I cannot recommend her services enough. Claire also sent me
txts and photos whilst we were away so I knew all was well. Upon returning we had a lovely card (we got married whilst on holiday) and some thoughtful essentials - all of which were totally
unexpected and very much appreciated! Claires services are very reasonably priced and you can tell instantly she adores all felines. Her approach is professional but very much down to earth and makes
you feel at ease with the whole concept straight away.
Thank you so much again, and I have no doubt we will be asking you to cat sit Charlie for our holidays next year (instead of asking family members to do it!) xxx
Cristina(Thursday, October 06 16 08:27 pm BST)
Claire is absolutely brilliant with our little Ziggy. It was so good to be away and know that our girl was getting plenty of attention and excellent care. Ziggy has clearly loved having Claire
around, she was so chilled and loving when we came back, I think she had her own little holiday! Thanks for everything, we're thrilled that you have looked after our little girl so well. We will
definitely be using Claire's services next time we're away :-)
