Stand back Eartha Kitt, Julie Newmar, Michelle Pfeiffer et al, Liz Burman is the ULTIMATE 'cat woman'!!! Having previously had terrible experiences with other Lincolnshire so-called 'luxury' catteries, we were anxious about leaving our pet ... we returned to find a VERY happy, healthy and contented cat and now wishing we could leave so many more than 5-stars. Lea Wood Cattery exceeded all of our expectations! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Liz is amazing and so obviously loves her cats! We were so nervous leaving emma after a previous bad experience, but emma came home and was back to normal in minutes. We are so confident of leaving emma with Liz, I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! Thank you so much Liz!
Liz is Brilliant with my Parrot Charlie! I swear he cant wait for us to go away so he can have her call to look after him again! If you need an animal or bird looking after whilst you are away please look no further! Thankyou So Much Liz xxx
Would thoroughly recommend this lovely cattery. I had never put my beloved Misty in one before, but I had no need to worry, Liz texted me twice to let me know what Misty was up too, and she was just being her cheeky little self. When I picked her up, she was very happy. Will certainly use again. Thank you Liz and team <3
Absolutely perfect cattery. Clean, well maintained, full of happy cats and lovely friendly staff. Liz's experience and knowledge of cats is second to none. It's so reassuring to have somewhere that you trust 110% to look after your cats for you. xx
Thank you once again Liz for looking after our fur babies while we were away & generally being so brilliant! Wouldn't trust anyone else with them! Also thank you for going above & beyond yesterday, greatly appreciated! Xxx
Thank you so much to Liz and Zara for looking after my cats Pumpkin and Princess for 2 weeks! This was the first time since I adopted them that I had to be away from them and you put me completely at ease. The girls had a lovely, spacious and clean room to stay in and looked so comfortable when I came to pick them up and take them home! I'm so happy that I can rely on someone to look after my girls and I will always to come you guys to look after them! A big thanks from Pumpkin and Princess for their gift you gave them and all the cuddles they received in your care xxxx
The service and quality of lea wood cattery is incredible. We are extremely protective of our indoor Sphynx and Rex cats, and Liz and her girls went that extra mile to ensure all of my cats received so much love and care.. So much so that they didn't want to come home when we went to pick them up! The themed suites are just perfect and the cattery provide lots of enrichment for the kitties to keep their stress levels reduced. The hamper we also received at the end was beautiful and had a little personal touch, fantastic service, will 100% recommend and will be returning!
Thank you for so very much to Liz and team for taking very good of my George during his recent stay. I would totally recommend Lea Wood Cattery to anybody who needs a place for their furbaby to stay for their holidays. I was able to go on holiday knowing that George would be given the best care and would get loads of cuddles. This cattery is definitely the best in the UK and totally deserves it's award x
I cannot praise this cattery enough! I 100% trust Liz and team with my precious Molly. Liz always goes the extra mile for all of her guests, such as providing steps for her more "elderly" guests! I know I don't need to worry when molly is staying there and have updates and pictures to keep me happy! Molly has stayed several times and is booked in for a few more holidays this year. If you are looking for a cattery do not hesitate to bring your fur babies there, you will not be disappointed! Keep up the great work!
Liz and her family are so dedicated in making our Beauty's stay with them a wonderful experience. We have no hesitation in highly recommending them. Lea Wood Cattery is the best cattery we have ever used, excellent service and standards. See you again in September. Jane, John and Beauty O. Xxx
