I have known Shirley for over twenty years and during that time I have witnessed the love, care and attention she lavished on all the cats and kittens in her care during the many years that she was a volunteer with the local branch of a national cat charity.

When Shirley realised her dream of opening her own cattery I knew at once that that was where I wanted to board my own cats. Over the years she has proved the safest pair of hands you could ask for, and the cats always return home having had a wonderful stay at Lupin Lap of Luxury.

I have been taking my cat, Rio, to Shirley at Lupin Lap of Luxury since 2010 and we have always been very happy with every aspect of the service. Shirley really cares for the cats and Rio is always well looked after.

We have complete confidence that Stella the cat will be properly cared for whilst in Shirley’s care. Shirley is a natural cat lover having been associated with and cared for cats for many years. We always choose Lupin Lap of Luxury because of the piece of mind it gives us knowing that Stella will be in safe hands.

I have been a customer of Shirley Tipper for many years now and would highly recommend her Cattery to anyone.

I found Bobby our Cat when we visited Shirley some 14 years ago as we were looking for a Cat to care for and she had a lot of rescue Cats which she had taken care of and was trying to find homes for. They were all cared for so very well.

Over the past 14 years we have had no hesitation in taking our Cat Bobby to her Cattery whilst we have been away on holiday and he has always been so happy to go there. Indeed I think over the years he regards it now as his “holiday home” and he settles in the Cattery very well and we have never encountered any problems at all.

I have found Shirley to be a very kind and caring person and would highly recommend her Cattery to anyone. The accommodation is first class for your pet and they are all well cared for in a lovely clean environment and have a lovely outlook. You can go away on holiday or your break knowing that your Cat will be looked after so very well.

We have been boarding our much loved cat at Lupin Lap of Luxury for over 10 years. From the first visit, it was obvious that Shirley is a ‘cat person’ with a natural aptitude and caring nature. Her attention to detail with feeding, medication, a specific need or treatment is assured. Shirley treats the individual needs of every cat in her care. She goes beyond keeping and feeding them, she cares for them and their individual needs in the widest sense.

Our ageing Alice (17 years) needs that little extra care and attention – that is exactly what she gets. The comfort and surroundings in which she is housed are excellent.

We would happily speak to anyone who wants a personal direct recommendation.
