Why choose Happy Cats ?
Cats are territorial animals and are happiest in their own environment: our cat care service avoids the stress of a trip to the cattery and a stay in strange place. We are there not just to feed your cat and change its cat litter but to spend quality time with your cat, playing with it and giving it love and affection in your absence.
Happy Cats was founded in August 2007 and at the time of writing (May 2014) we now have over 150 (human) active clients and have completed more than 1700 bookings. We are obviously doing something right and our clients agree: they have all given us positive feedback and have indicated that they will use us again (as many of them already have).

CHANEL, ONE YEAR ON!
It is, incredibly, almost a year since Helen and Roy adopted their then 17 ½ Tonkinese, Chanel. It’s been a year full of love and emotion: Chanel, an ex-client, is now frail and blind (she lost her sight through hypertension in August 2013), but is still full of personality and likes to keep Helen on her toes!
She is, as ever, very beautiful, as you can see from the photos, and much loved. She likes to sleep on, under, next to, wrapped up in Helen (and now and again Roy!) and has four favourite things: food, sleep, warmth and sunshine (and not necessarily in that order).
Learning to live with a blind cat was a shock for Helen and Roy, but they quickly realized that there are three cardinal rules: 1. keep things in the same place, especially furniture and her food and water. 2. Reassure a blind cat by talking to them even more than usual. 3. Give extra cuddles. As Helen says: “Chanel’s life is not that different from before she lost her sight: she just takes things a bit more slowly. We are very proud of the way she has dealt with it: after all, humans understand theconcept of blindness, but for Chanel suddenly the lights went out.”
Chanel still enjoys a daily walk in the garden, with Helen or Roy following close behind: a neighbour’s barking dog can give everybody a nasty turn as Chanel is not keen on dogs! A trip to the garden centre is also planned to get more scented plants, so she can navigate more easily and Chanel, always a clever cat, has learnt the meaning of the word “left!” which Helen says firmly when Chanel is on the patio steps, so that she doesn’t fall off them!
As with all older cats, it’s worth having a regular check-up at your vets and also ensuring that they have enough warmth: even in summer old cat bones can feel a chill.
Thank you, as ever, to all of you who enquire regularly after Chanel: she is doing well and we are very proud of our old lady!
