'We have used Four Feet Retreat since moving to Lincoln 7 years ago, both for our previous cat and now our present cat Flix. Both animals have always been well looked after and love the heat mats provided, in fact our cat insisted we buy her one of her own! Karen obviously loves the cats and cares for them as if they were her own and gives excellent value for money. As long as we have cats they will take their holidays at Four Feet Retreat Lloyd & Vina Tansley

I wouldn't leave my 2 little treasures, Frank & Lola, anywhere else. They settle in immediately and sometimes don't want to come home. But what makes it for me is that Karen is more interested in the welfare of the cats than the money, unlike other Catteries.Frances Rackham

Greenday has been going on his holidays to Four Feet Retreat for over 2 years now. Aunty Karen always welcomes him and is patient with him as he is very nervous. Greenday has always been very well looked after and Karen always reassures us when we phone to check on him. Would recommend to anyone as it is a great holiday destination for our baby boy.Leanne & Shaun McHugh

Always happy to accommodate Rav's needs. He loves the heat pads! Well looked after and Karen obviously dedicated in her passion for looking after the pets in her care. Don't know how she does it with 'all the rescue work as well. A caring person with a well run establishment.Mrs McMurray-Herbert

'Highly Recommended' My cat Missy has stayed many times at Four Feet Retreat, and is always very well looked after during her stay. Karen doesn't mind if you ring or text her while you are away to see how Missy is. Also, once back home no problems, settles straight back in as if she was never away.Mrs Whitaker

'Our 14 year old cat has just developed Diabetes. This was quite a shock to us both as we had no idea how we would be able to cope with this. We thought that we would never be able to go on holiday again or leave him for short breaks, but we then discovered Karen's Cattery on the internet. What a blessing this has been.

Karen is able to give Mortimer his 2 injections of insulin a day. He is happy for her to do this and for her to look after him. When he comes back home we have no problems with him and we would recommend Karen and her Cattery to anyone who has a Diabetic or special needs cat.>br />
Mortimer has now gone into 'remission' but we know that his Diabetes could return at any time, and it is so comforting to know that when we go on holiday we can leave him with Karen and know that if he does have any problems she will be able to deal with him
Mr & Mrs Connolly

We have brought our cat here for 3 years now. Service is always reliable and good. Our cat seems very happy to visit. I would recommend you give Four Feet your cat to look after.L.Green

We have now boarded our cat Oscar 3 times at Four Feet Retreat. I have to admit that I was very apprehensive about boarding him as he had been mistreated by his previous owners, and we were unsure how he would react to being left. However, I knew when I met Karen that she was a cat loving person, very professional and flexable with arrangements for dropping off and picking him up. Each time we pick him up we know that he has received excellent care as he is stress free and a loving cat on our return homeS.Hurrey

Best Cattery I have ever used !!

A home away from home for my cat and she never comes back stressed like she has at other Catteries. Karen is amazing and its like the cat has a 2nd mum when she's there. I never worry when Barley is at Karen's. I always reccomend her and won't take my cat anywhere else.

We got to know about the Four Feet Retreat cattery while at the vetís. Our cat Fion is quite old now and has diabetes and it was our vet who recommended Karenís cattery to us.

We have to give him injections twice a day and there are very few people willing to take on this kind of responsibility so we were unable to go away. Thankfully Karen is skilled at doing this and we are very grateful for her efficiency and competence. We now have few concerns at leaving him as we know that he is in good hands in her care. Her kindness and love for cats is obvious and she taking in rescue cats, , as well as boarding cats for their owners. She has always been really helpful and reassuring and we would have no reservations in recommending the Four Feet Retreat to anyone looking for a reliable cattery.

Four Feet Retreat is catís heaven and Karen is a second ĎMumí to my two. They do not want to go home. In addition to their contentment, I myself am reassured that Karen, with her rescue experience, will be able to deal competently with whatever arises. H. Alibakir

'I have been using Four Feet Retreat Cattery for over a year and am more than happy with the way my cat is looked after. My cat (Domino) is diabetic and has to have insulin injections twice a day, plus tablets daily and Karen is more than happy to do that for me, so I can go away happy knowing that he will be looked after.  A lot of catteries wouldn't do that, as I found out when I rang them. Karen's cattery is very clean and well equipped and Karen is a very caring person. Domino always comes back home looking very healthy and is diappointed to find he hasn't got his favourite heat pad when he gets back! I will carry on using Four Feet Retreat as long as I have Domino.'      Jackie, Branston

'We have given our two cats, George and Candy, into Karen's safe keeping on many occasions during the past year. The fact that both cats seem keen to go in but reluctant to leave, speaks volumes about the care and attention they recieve at Four Feet Retreat.'      J & M, Lincoln

'Tillie is always well looked after, which means we can enjoy our holidays with peace of mind. I would not hesitate to recommend Four Feet Retreat.'     D. P., Lincoln

'Really pleased, repeat customer. Tabitha is fine, I feel relaxed leaving her while we are on holiday. She is safe, warm and at home. Homely. =) '       Mrs J. Fuller, Lincoln

'Karen always takes such special care of Pickles, our 16 year old cat. He always comes home contented (and often having put a little weight on). The love Karen has for the animals really shows.'           D. Mole, Lincoln

'Having recently relocated to Lincoln I needed to find a 'holiday home from home' for my old cat, who is extremely 'picky' and set in her ways. I was therefore delighted to have 'Four Feet' recommended. I now think my 'picky moggie' looks forward to her holidays, knowing she is going to be thoroughly spoiled and pampered.'       B. Moore, Lincoln

'Sally is a regular visitor to Four Feet Retreat, where all the guests are treared like family pets. I definitely recommend this clean, comfortable cattery.'          J. Belbin, Lincoln

'Four Feet Retreat is fantastic! As soon as Sophie arrives, she is exploring her area, quite content. I think we miss her more than she misses us! Karen really cares for the cats and is very professional. The pens are large and have a view of the garden so there's always something to keep Sophie interested.'          K. Robertson, Lincoln

'Karen is a genuine animal lover and this shows in the excellent care and attention to detail at Four Feet Retreat. We have boarded outr cat, Abi, on several occasions since Karen opened and every time Abi appears more reluctant to return home.'                Ian and Mary Boole, Lincoln

'Always a friendly welcome; Karen knows all the cats by name. Purpose built, comfortable cattery where we're confident that Kizzie is safe, secure and cared for. All rooms with a 'bird's eye view', ensuite and complete with heat pad for chillier days or nights.'               Denise, Lincoln

'This is our third stay at Four Feet Retreat and we are very happy here. It's very friendly and the accommodation is second to none.'             Sharon Hallam, Lincoln

'Karen's cattery is excellent. Ginger and Posh always come back happy, healthy and not hungry! Ginger has to have two types of medicine and Karen is only too happy to give him them for us. Ginger also loves his heat pad! Posh loves the larger pen with the climbing equipment. The view of the garden and the cleanliness are great too! Highly recommended and professional.'             Sharon and Alan Sardeson, Lincoln

'My cat loves her stays at Four Feet Retreat, as it is like a second home for her. I can go away happy in the knowledge that she will be getting all the love, care and attention from Karen that she needs.'                 Kerry Fagg, Lincoln

'I always feel very confident that Poppy has been well looked agter, whether it's for a short or long stay! She never gets stressed and I can tell she has been happy because she settles so well and is the same when returning home. I highly recommend Four Feet Retreat and Karen's obvious care and commitment to the animal's well being.'                         Angie Cameron, Lincoln

'We have checked out other catteries but none come up to the standard of Four Feet Retreat. We can always be sure that our kits will always receive the best of care, which is one of the reson we came back for another rescue cat. We recommend it to others at every opportunity.'                          Baker, Lincoln

'Karen has looked after my cat on many occasions including the infamous 'ex partner ditches the cat at the cattery and vanishes' incident. The heat mat alone means that my cat has to be prised away from the cattery when I turn up to collect her. Always well looked after and content after staying at the Four Feet Retreat, my cat will never holiday anywhere else.
Karen is a helpful friendly lady who can never do enough to help. Truly a pleasure to visit the cattery.'       
A. Nicholson, Lincoln
