"Our two bengal girls have just returned from their fourth stay at Fondbrigg cared for with great care and expertise by Tracy. We feel totally relaxed leaving them with Tracy and were very glad to have found Fondbrigg a couple of years ago. Tracy is not just dedicated but probably slightly obsessed with cats and other small furries in her care. This place isn’t for those looking for a box to lock their cats in this place is for cat lovers who want their pets treated with loving care and having all thier fussy little ways tended to."
"Fondbrigg cottage cattery is in a great country location with very clean and comfortable accommodation. Tracy is a real feline lover who looks after them like they are her own. She gives strokes, cuddles and toys and her garden with chickens provides plenty of entertainment. Fondbrigg is the perfect place for your cat's holiday."
“We are extremely happy with the quality of care and understanding of our cat’s particular needs. Tracey is very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The facilities are quiet and peaceful. The cats are able to see out into the garden and have other small animals to entertain them. Fully recommended.”
“We have been boarding Truffle, our lovely cat, with Tracy ever since we found out she had opened her cattery. On our first visit we knew that this would be Truffle’s permanent holiday home! We can now go away and relax, knowing that she is always exceptionally well cared for and loved. Tracy is like no other cattery owner we have known – apart from being a fully qualified veterinary nurse with many years of experience, she is also a genuine cat lover. She provides a very high standard of professional care, and is absolutely dedicated to the cats and small animals in her care. We wouldn’t want to leave Truffle with anyone else and have no hesitation at all in recommending her.”

“We have boarded our rabbits with Tracy since she first opened.
She so obviously views her work as much more than a business caring for the animals in the fullest sense of the word.
She recently took our rabbit straight from the vets and nursed it back to health.
We have no hesitation in recommending Fonbrigg.”

“I took my cat to stay with Tracy for a week. I was real nervous to leave him as he’s never been away from me and he’s very nervous and doesn’t settle with anyone he’s only ever been with me. He is very funny around other people and just hides. Well I didn’t need to be nervous, Tracy did an excellent job and my cat really took to her. She give him the best care and he made friends with Tracy – a first for my cat he had a great time and I enjoyed my holiday. I would highly recommend Tracy she has a beautiful set up; the animals get the best care and Tracy is a lovely lady. I will definitely be leaving my animals in here in the future – it’s perfect.”

“Our 3 cats have stayed here with Tracy for 5 nights over Xmas. We were apprehensive about leaving them as they can be quite nervous. However our fears were dispelled from the moment we met Tracy. The cats were treated like royalty and cared for impeccably. They even had a Christmas stocking each and a special meal on Christmas Day. Knowing they were being so well cared for, enabled us to relax and enjoy our break. We cannot recommend Fondbrigg Cottage highly enough and would like to say a massive thank you to Tracy for her wonderful care and dedication. We won’t hesitate to use again.
Lots of love

“Last November I went away for a few days for some very much needed break and I contacted Tracy about my beautiful Sylver because I was so very anxious about leaving her. But I didn’t need to be as the moment I met Tracy I let my guard down. She was very polite and sincere, I told her that Sylver is 100% blind and can not see anything. I also told her to approach Sylver slowly and hold out her hand so Sylver could sniff it (I call it touching base) .. All my stresses were lifted as Tracy did a marvelous job.. 5 out of 5 … I can not fault Tracy one bit…”

We think its such a lovely well equipped small animal hotel and cattery. … your pet couldn’t be looked after better or with as much TLC anywhere else in this area.. plus Tracy has lots of qualifications and experience in pet care as she was a veterinary nurse..”
