We have left our cats in Cattery Cottage several times over the past few years and Martina is still giving excellent care as always.Her enthusiasm and love of cats is obvious.She gives them time and attention and has lovely purpose built housing with beanbags, hammocks, climbing frames and toys.I can relax feeling confident that our furry friends are having a good time too.I would highly recommend Cattery Cottage.

Just a little note to say a MASSIVE thank you for looking after Tizzy so well for the last 3 weeks, it made it easier leaving her behind knowing she was going to be spoilt! Tizzy has spend the afternoon in the garden with me and hasnt stopped purring!

Bobby and Belle seem delighted to be home. Have been charging all over the garden this evening, cuddling up with us and now ready to snooze.
Thanks for taking great care of them while we were away. It’s so good to know they’re happy.All the best wishes

Thanks for looking after mac so well and for sending on the little video.She seems to have gotten really brave and did a lot of exploring.I can’t believe she went up on the hammock. I feel very proud!
Elaine D& Mac, Newbridge, Co.Kildare, October 2017
Hi Martina,Just a short note to say thank you for looking after George so well these past 2 weeks. He is very happy and contented which is a sign that he was happy with you.Thanks for the smilebox. I just saw it today . Its brilliant.Will be in touch in the near future. Thanks again
Marie F & George, Naas, Co.Kildare, August 2017
Thank you so so much for minding Tabby my little darling cat. I will never go to another cattery again as long as you are open. Tabby was treated so well. He is like my baby and when he is happy, I am happy. He is currently home and is so glossy and running around. We got sent photos when we were on our holidays and we could feel at ease that he was so well cared for. I would recommend Martina to everyone. She has such a love for cats so if you adore your little treasure cat, you can rest at ease that your cat will be cared for. I would give her 10/10. Its great because Tabby received the exact food he loves and all the attention and the little garden they each have and can look out at the lovely scenery. Once you have a taste for cattery cottage you will never look back. Thanks so much again, I will be praising you to everyone.

Martina, thank you so much for taking such good care of Jack over the Christmas holidays. From the moment we arrived at the Cottage Cattery we knew our precious puss would be looked after by someone who really loved and understood cats. We really enjoyed getting the regular emails and photos of his stay.Thank you and Happy New Year
Paula C & Jack, Dublin 9, January 2017
Thank you so much for the many updates and photos and the very obvious love and care your giving all your furry guests! I had such a great laugh when I saw the Christmas jumper pictures ???? I’m wondering if they’ll want to come home with us?! ????????
Aenne B, Dutshka & Kato, Phibsborough, Dublin 7, January 2017
Thanks, Martina! Mac is home and happy, having explored every corner of his territory again. He’s now curled up beside me on the couch, and sends his love and thanks for a lovely holiday.
Elaine K & Mac, Lucan, Co.Dublin, September 2016
Martina,How fantastic!!!Thank you so much ??

Hi Martina
Just to say thanks again for looking after the kitties on their extended holidays!Maisie seems to have grown in confidence. She hid under the bed last night until about 10.30 but then came down for an inspection and this morning for first time ever she got on my bed while I was in it.Elmo was also happier.Thanks again. See you next time we’re going away!
Michelle R, Maisie&Elmo, Kilcullen, Co.Kildare, June 2016
Our three pussy-cats have settled back into their home, but they really did not want to leave your beautiful holiday retreat! You have provided a facility that must be absolutely beyond compare. We could not believe the range and extent of the fittings and furnishings the furries had at their disposal when we first met you.
We felt absolutely happy and relaxed leaving our pets with you, knowing that they would be so well minded. We really appreciated that you were willing to continue the medicine needed for two of them.
I suppose that the ultimate reference is to answer the question “Would you go back there again?”. In short, “Yes”: without any hesitation in our minds and with 100% confidence that the most fastidious cat-minder will be satisfied with the care and attention provided by you.Thank you very much.
Ron&LisaC, Bootie,Leroy&Smudge, Manor Kilbride, Co.Wicklow, May 2016
Ziggy had a fantastic stay over Christmas while we were on honeymoon. He was so well cared for which was obvious from the little emails with photos and videos every week. Cattery Cottage is an amazing place and pure luxury for cats. This lady clearly has a passion for cats and Ziggy even got a Christmas stockig full of goodies to take home with him. He came home a happy relaxed kitty! Thank you very much x
Eva O’M& Ziggy, Lucan, Co.Dublin, January 2016
Martina, thank you so very much for the wonderful care you gave to Titus, Tiggy and Callie. They loved their stay in the hotel. I will recommend catterycottage, and will book your services again.
Siobhan O’R, Tiggy,Titus & Callie, Donard, Co.Wicklow, January 2016
A big thank you for looking after our Kitty so well and thank you also for the photo’s and the Halloween slide movie, they were great. She followed us around everywhere when we got home for about an hour but is know settled on the bed upstairs. We will be looking to use your services again and would definitely recommend you to others. Once again thank you very much. Take care hope you both have fabulous holiday and keep safe.
Valerie & Steve M & Kitty, Tullow, Carlow, October 2015
Thank you so much for all your care of Mac, and for the lovely pictures. I’m sure he really enjoyed his stay. I’m really looking forward to seeing him again!
Elaine K & Mac, Lucan, Co.Dublin, October 2015
Hi Martina,I must say thank you again for taking such great care of Forry and Momo on their holiday with you.They seemed really relaxed and also enjoyed all the interesting things you provide for stimulation.I’m sure they won’t mind returning to your “hotel” on their next holiday! The update emails and pictures were very reassuring and our daughter in Australia enjoyed them too especially the Smilebox.
You deserve every success as you put such caring effort into your business.I will recommend you to other cat lovers.
Meryl McG & Forry&Momo, Clane, Co.Kildare, October 2015
I’m just back to work this morning and wanted to say thank you again for the lovely holiday that Willow had.She wandered around the house when she got home making lots of noise and I would swear she wanted to go back to you, she kept sitting at the door meowing. I don’t think I have seen her so relaxed before. She spent the whole of the next day curled up in a ball asleep on her bed. I would have no hesitation leaving her with you again. Getting the messages from Willow was a treat and the peace of mind knowing she was well looked after was great..
Marian T & Willow, Kiltipper D24, August 2015
Thanks you so much for looking after Jackpot. She means the world to us and you looked after her so well. The Smilebox, emails & texts were so reassuring to us. Thanks for going above & beyond.
Lynn&Patrick McG & Jackpot, Naas, Co.Kildare, August 2015
Sorry for the delay with this email but I’m only slowly getting back into things now.I just wanted to thank you for looking after Fluffy so well last week. I think she had a great time with you.We’re still loving all the photos – they’re fab. She’ll definitely be back again – if you’ll have her.Best wishes,
Josephine S& Fluffy, Nurney, Co.Kildare, August 2015
Hi Martina, You really go above and beyond the call of duty. thanks so much for looking after chima. the captions deserve a merit award of sorts, thanks so much
Carol & John G & Chima, Naas, Co.Kildare, July 2015
It has been great with the peace of mind having them with you! No worries about how they are doing, knowing they are in such good hands and having a little holiday of their own really added to our holiday! Brilliant Smilebox ! Looks the 4 of them are having a blast… You’re so good!!! We love it, hilarious the antics of all 4 of them!You’re so great Martina, can’t thank you enough!!!
Paul & Brian & Alfie, Rascal,Lexi & Nanu , Kilmaimham D8, July 2015
What a beautiful Smilebox!!! So many fantastic pictures of my furry little girl! You look so happy and rested from your long holiday at the Cottage. Martina – I know you have been spoiling her so – fresh chicken and tuna! I notice her eating on her bean bag as well. HRF will be disappointed at home when she is expected to eat on the floor! Although her bean bag is close by…….
Hilary S & Whiskers, Ranelagh D6, July 2015
Oh, Martina,I just came on this gem of an album! Thank you so much for recording this time in your loving care; I surely never need to wonder how they spend their ‘holidays’ with you. Love,
Lucy D & Lady Jane & Mr Bots, Castledermot, June 2015
That was adorable! Thanks so much. It gave me a great glimpse into his goings-on! I really appreciate all that you’re doing for him. He looks delighted with himself!
Thanks again,
Suzie W & Archie, Bray, Co.Wicklow, June 2015
I just wanted to write a few words to thank you so much. Obviously for taking such good care of Summer, she had a great time – but you did so much more than that. The updates to us were such a treat and the photos were fantastic, what I saw was a very quick transition of my shy and hesitant kitten into one that was confident and social. She couldn’t get enough of the place. This was because of the love and attention she received in a gentle manner. You managed to settle both Summer and I into our holidays which was no mean feat. I knew the minute we arrived at Cattery Cottage that this was the place. I loved the atmosphere, I loved your approach and I knew this Cattery was a total labour of love for you. I was so lucky to have found this area of paradise for cats as was Summer. I cannot thank you enough.
Orla MacC & Summer, Cityside,D11, March 2015
I just wanted to send you a little email to thank you for taking such good care of Cookie, and me with all of the pics and updates to reassure me that she was doing well:) She’s been very relaxed all day so I think she had a really good time. Thank you again and I promise you’ll always have a patron in Cookie if you want her! You’ll also be my first recommendation whenever I hear about any cat owners going away. Look after yourself and keep doing what you’re doing
Jason C & Cookie, Monasterevin, March 2015
Thanks so much for the Smilebox message. Catsby looks like he is having a whale of a time! I bet he’ll be sad to leave when it comes time to take him home.
Richard S & Grey Catsby, Rathmines, January 2015
Just a note to say thanks so much for taking excellent care of Beast, as usual. Beast is horrified by S’s increased mobility and wishes to return to your fine establishment!
Veronica&Peter C & Beast, Adamstown, September 2014
Martina I just wanted once again to thank you for your excellent service and the great care you gave to both Bonnie and Salem during their stay with you this Summer.Salem is a totally different cat and back to the way she was years ago.She is sooooo content and affectionate and it is great to see her back to her old self.She has not needed any medication since her return home and her fur is growing back rapidly so whatever stress she was under has totally gone.She is constantly by our side and loves to cuddle more now than she had been doing.I don’t know what magic you did at Cattery Cottage while they were there with you but we are delighted with them and have highly recommended you to other cat owners and friends
Maria&Vittorio & Salem&Bonnie,Finglas, September 2014
Good God when you said you’ld send us a picture of Ally we didnt expect a techy trip through her holiday with you-it was fabulous, we got such a Kick out of the pics & commentary! She looks like she wont want to come home with us at all-we didn’t get such 5* treatment here! Many thanks
Reece&Brendan C & Ally, Blessington, September 2014
Thanks M for the lovely video. Eve was in the lap of luxury. You look after your guests so well.
Marie C & Eve, Blessington, September 2014
I am settled back in Martina but my Mom thinks I miss you very much(which I do) My Mom & brother are spoiling me rotten, but I don’t get anywhere near the amount of attention I get when on my holidays with you. Thank you for everything – I had a wonderful time and you take such good care of me! My Mom thanks you as well and is so thankful you can look after me when she can’t.
Hilary & Whiskers, Ranelagh, August 2014
Thank you so much for taking care of my beloved Tiger & Bindi while I was away. Even though I was worried and missed them, I knew they were in good hands. I love that you send pictures because it was nice to see them having a good time and eased the “missing”feeling. I think your facility is fantastic
Kenna & Tiger & Bindi, Stradbally, August 2014
Thank you so much for looking after us. We always have such fun at the Cattery and look forward to our holidays everytime (maybe not the journey up) Thanks for everything you do for them – we really appreciate it.
Eimear&Michael & Suggs&Ziggy, Inchicore, August 2014
Thank you so much for the update and photos of Marmalade, it’s so good to know he’s very happy and loved! He probably won’t want to come home lol.
Elaine,Paul&Katie B & Marmalade, Newbridge, August 2014
The girls arrived home safely this morning and are looking very well after their holiday. Many thanks for looking after them so well. You run a really fantastic service and I hope that business booms for you as it’s very well deserved.
Colette & Dusty & Sally, Sallins, July 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed watching the antics of Florrie so thank you Martina and for looking after her so well, much appreciated, enjoy the rest of the summer, all the best,
Anne & Florrie, Terenure, July 2014

I think Nelson went to you a kitten and came back a cat. He seems much more confident and grown up. It was wonderful watching him settle back in when we got home.I’ve been replaying the videos you sent me and they are just great – I cant wait to show them to the rest of the family.Thank you again Martina for taking such good care of my little treasure and the peace of mind I had that he wasn’t fretting or unhappy while I was away

Helen & Nelson, Skerries, June 2014

Thank you so much for looking after Lucky and Squeeky. Never have we been so confident when on holidays that they are being properly looked after and their many demands are being met. All of us look forward to our next holidays and the girls can’t wait to return to Cattery Cottage.Many thanks

Agne&Stephen & Lucky&Squeeky, Swords, June 2014

Thank you so much for looking after Robin so well. I just love the Smilebox holiday pics – what a great idea and how thoughtful. So lovely to have. You really are great and should we ever need a place for Robin to stay in the future, you will definitely be our first choice! Take care and best wishes
Sharon & Lynn & Robin, Ballsbridge, August 2013
Thank you very much for the care you gave the two. They are very friendly and loving since their return. We reckon that you spoiled them rotten. Thanks very much,
Anna & Michael & Freya & Odin, Malahide, July 2013
it’s taken me until now to figure out how to download smilebox.I loved it&thanks for taking the time to make it & to send it on to me.I knew Mac would be happy with you & I didn’t spend one minute of my holiday worrying about her, which was just great. She loved her time iwth you and i know that because when i brought her home she went out to the garden, had a screaching match with the cat next door, finally came into bed at 11.30, let me rub her for a minute, bite me and went off to sleep happy out! you’ll definitely be getting her again. Thanks again.
Elaine & Mac, Newbridge, June 2013
Thank you for looking after Nala and Simba so well for me, they have settled back no problem and are enjoying sunning themselves on the deck each day, I envy them so much!!! Believe me the next time I go away on holidays there will be only one place I will want them to go too and that is to your good self. I hope you have a great and busy summer and hopefully I will see you again soon!
Triona & Nala & Simba, Clondalkin, May 2013
Thanks for he update. Not sure if he will want to come home after the 5* treatment you’re giving him! πŸ™‚ he seems really happy and at ease and it’s all I’d wish for! I must say I am very impressed by the dedication and the time that you put into looking after all the feelines in your care. I just showed the Smilebox to my mom and she couldn’t believe that you have created such a fab cattery and put so much heart into it.We are both missing our little furball and thanks to your updates we maintain sanity. πŸ™‚
Aleks & Sean & Googie, Blessington, May 2013
Martina we can’t thank you enough for looking after Pip. Seeing all her pictures and her Smilebox was brilliant. Cattery Cottage is amazing. A real furry paradise πŸ™‚ it’s obvious you have a genuine love for your work. We couldn’t have felt safer about leaving Pip in your very capable and caring hands. Thanks again.
Tia&Will & Pip, Westmeath, May 2013
Our Smilebox is just fab! I am sorry not to get back to tell you this sooner but sure, better than later! All three loved their freedom to roam about. Thanks for taking such loving care of them and your getting to know them so well is most touching. We look forward to their next holiday in Cattery Cottage
Lucy & Lady Jane, Bots & ET, Castledermot, May 2013
Just got the photo’s.. Thanks a million, He looks like he’s having a great time. It’s such a relief to know we can leave him somewhere is he so well taken care off
Samantha & Tigger,Clane, May 2013
Thank you so much for looking after my family in January. It was obvious from the wellbeing of the cats when they returned, and the plentiful text updates, that they were given the same care and attention they are used to at home. I would be delighted to recommend Cattery Cottage to anyone needing a temporary home for their cats.Thanks again
