Our cat, Jinx, stayed here recently for a week whilst we were away. It was our first time leaving him, so naturally we (especially the children) were anxious about the entire experience. We really shouldn’t have worried. The service was absolutely faultless. The owners immediately put us at ease and made Jinx comfortable. During the course of our holiday, we received a couple of regular updates and photographs of Jinx enjoying his break. The children were absolutely delighted with this, such a personal touch. Couldn’t recommend enough.

Ira’s cattery is fantastic! The main consideration is that an owner will be kind to our cat and Ira has that in abundance... the cattery is spotless and we know Celia will be well looked after and be totally safe. We have recommended everyone to Ira’s cattery, but don’t want her to get full up so she can’t accommodate Celia! Thanks for everything Ira. 

The Bradings and especially Celia!

I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Howgrave Lodge Cattery. So much thought has gone into the design…it really is a luxury hotel for cats! There are so many extra comforts including heating, window view to the outside world and even a comfy chair and rug.

My cat, Charlie, is a regular and settles immediately. Think he is thoroughly spoiled by Ira and I know I can have peace of mind when I leave him with her. Thank you so much Ira.
