I'm planning well ahead for 2 5-day periods that I'm going to need someone to look after BertCat, who is an indoor, slightly nervy but lap-loving madam.

Any recommendations greatly appreciated: there is one in TW7, but no photos or encouragement to visit first in their website, which has put flags up. Another one in Hampton which looks lovely, but all cathouses are in the open - not sure if BertCat would like this, being an indoor cat.

Any recommendations greatly appreciated, nothing I've found has much in the way of reviews.

You might get some recommendations privately, MrsBert but are there really only a couple when you google? I get thoosands near me. (Well a whole load anyway.)

Have you had a word with BertCat's vet practice to see if there's anybody they can recommend - or if they even take in boarders themselves for a short period? (Some vets do.) If you have a good relationship with the vet, they might make a recommendation on a 'trust' basis.

I can recommend a cattery in Hampton, which might be the one you have seen on the internet:

claremontcattery.co.uk

The cat chalets are in the garden, but each cat does have an enclosed heated area in which to sleep and hide away if they want.

The owners are very caring, and it is very well run. It does get fully booked for the school holidays quite early on though.

Thanks Cozie. There are a number of search results, but not many of those, when cross-ref'd, come up with reviews.

Olingouit, thank you it is the Claremont one that I've been looking at.
