Just delighted to have found Highworth Pet Care! Incredibly Professional, from an initial detailed assessment of our dog to using crash-proof crates to transport him in the car, they really do think of everything. We’ve used Highworth Pet Care for occasional dog walking and also day care for our young cocker spaniel. Nic couldn’t have been more thoughtful and was very sensitive when introducing our dog to other dogs in her care. Consequently, he really enjoys his time with her/them. Nic is so knowledgeable about dogs, and really does go the extra mile – during this recent hot weather she was very flexible and went out of her way to ensure our dog got some quality input without overheating. Highly recommended to anyone looking for very caring, professional pet-care.

Nicola has been caring for my cats for 4 years now and I can highly recommend her. reliable caring and friendly she takes care of your pets as if they were her own. I don’t know what I would do without her. putting my pet in a cattery for me is out of the question and the service Nicola provides is outstanding. highly recommended!

We had always put our cats in to a cattery when going on holiday but became increasingly aware that it was a stressful experience. After trying Highworth Pet Care for a short break we were more than happy to leave our cat at home in Nicola’s care for a week. The benefits are many; not just reduced but zero stress for the cat and reduced stress for us to. We can enjoy a holiday knowing that our cat is being looked after in her own space and that the house is being checked too, Nicola brings in the post, switches on lights and draws curtains. Her daily email updates and photographs provide complete peace of mind. We will continue to use Highworth Pet Care for our breaks and holidays and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Nicola.

I left my cat and rabbit in Nic’s capable hands for the first time this weekend and came home to two very happy pets. I have never left then at home before having always used a cattery, will certainly use Nic again and build up to longer periods. Thanks so much Nic

We’ve been using Nic to walk and board our dog over the last 6 months and she has been fantastic. We wouldn’t want to leave Nasa with anyone else. Nic has given us great advice as first time dog owners and really helped settle our dog into home life. I cannot recommend her enough.

Starting a new job is stressful without having to worry about your dogs being left. Nic has really helped making it a stress free transition for myself by providing A+ care for Milly and Olly. I have been absolutely amazed at how great she’s been with them, even when Milly was not keen on her at the start. I absolutely love my daily pupdates and its really good piece of mind knowing my two hooligans are happy and still getting their daily dentastick.

We’ve been using Nic at Highworth Per Care since our dog was a small puppy. The care and attention to him has been fantastic. Nic has been so helpful, collecting and dropping off in different places as well as feeding him and checking on his water bowl. A great service where we feel confident our dog is safe and happy. I’d recommend her for a fabulous service!

Five guinea pigs and two geriatric cats, Nic is great remembering each of their special needs and individual characters. I have also called Nic in an emergency. I wouldn’t want to leave my fur babies with anyone else.

We’ve been using Nic’s services for nearly six months now and we love the bond she has with our doggo. She takes the time to text me updates and always lets me know how my girl is doing. Plus, we just had a little evening catch up with Nic to discuss our dog’s training needs as she’s getting more settled into our home and Nic was more than happy to catch up and see what she could do to help. She really cares about our dog and you can’t ask for any more than that.

It was the first time my two dogs had been away to board and they had a wonderful time. Nic kept me up to date with texts and photos of the dogs, so I could relax knowing all was well. Both of my dogs are from the Blue Cross and I think they would find it hard to be in a kennel environment so they really enjoyed the home from home treatment that Nic and Keith gave them. Nic is very safety conscious and has all the necessary paperwork in place that is required. Next time I can’t take the dogs with me on holiday I know I can happily leave them at Highworth Pet care knowing they will have a fun holiday too!

Simply the Best! ,Simply the best!

Although we now live in South Wales we decided to use Highworth Pet Care for boarding our two precious cockers. It is 130 miles but I wouldn’t dream of sending the boys anywhere else.
I cannot praise Nicola and Keith enough. They are kind, caring and so knowledgeable about all aspects of dog care. From behaviour to nutrition, the evidence is their own two beautiful dogs. There are always updates and photos during their stay.
Towards the end of one of their stays one of our dogs became poorly. There was communication through out our time away, reassurance and regular updates. When we got home it was only then that we heard that Keith had spent two nights sleeping on the sofa to ensure our boy had attention when if he needed it. It was so lovely to hear that he had such wonderful care.
When we drop the boys off, they cannot wait to get into the house and are always happy to stay.
These people are really dedicated and professional in every way.

We have used Highworth Pet Care for over 4 years now. During this time they have never let us down. It means that when we go away we can be reassured that our cat is safe and well-cared for in his own home. There have been a couple of occasions when our cat has been unwell when have been away. HPC took charge in our absence, immediately took him to the vet and for follow up appointments and kept a close eye on him when we could not. It was such a relief that he was with a person he knew and who knew exactly what to do. The professionalism, care and compassion HPC have shown has been wonderful.

Having used the service offered by Highworth Pet Care for both dog walking and home boarding for over three years I can unreservedly and highly recommend the services provided. I have found them to offer a friendly, reliable and caring provision that meets the needs of both myself and my pet. Nothing is too much trouble. As a client I am immediately alerted to any issues related to my dog’s health and wellbeing. My dog is always keen and enthusiastic when Highworth Pet Care arrive and cannot wait to get out of the door!! I remain a more than satisfied client. Thank you Highworth Pet Care.

We previously used a cattery which was recommended, and relied on friends or neighbours for the odd weekend away. On Jasper’s last stay at the cattery, we heard that he spent most of his week hiding under his blanket, and wouldn’t even come to us when we picked him up. At this point, we decided to look for a local solution, to keep Jasper at home.
When I contacted Nic, she came to see us, explained about her services and got to know Jasper. We immediately knew this was the lady we were looking for. We don’t believe our cat could be in safer or more caring hands, and it is good to know that there is someone popping into the house each day. When we return home we always find Jasper content and well looked after.
Thank you Nic for giving us peace of mind and excellent cat care.


I cannot recommend Highworth Pet Care enough! I have used Nicola to help me look after two different dogs with different needs and she’s always been so helpful over the years. Rocky my current four legged best friend loves having her visit in the day and I’m always content she’s made a special fuss of him. An obvious knowledgeable animal lover, Nicola goes above and beyond to make sure her customers are well cared for, and even offers excellent advice when needed. I know my dogs safe in her hands and she is very reliable to help out when I need. Thank you for everything.

“To say my dog is happy staying with Nicola at Highworth Pet Care is probably an understatement, she loves being there. It is so nice to know that she is so well cared for when I am away and cannot take her with me; it gives me total peace of mind.”

Jill from Highworth

I was worried about my 2 little dogs as I had to go into hospital for surgery & then 2 weeks recuperation ……. what to do with Lilly & Rosie. Then I found Nicola, Highworth Pet Care. They boarded with her for a week, then Nicola did the “Walkies” for a further 2 weeks. The outcome of this is that my 2 girls now have a 2nd home-from-home.
The greeting Nicola gets when she comes to my house is tantamount to the love and care they receive with her. She is SO conscientious. I recommend Nicola to anyone wishing to have their pet looked after lovingly and properly, without any worries.

Audrey from Highworth

Nic takes special care of our family of many cats. As mad cat people we don’t trust our furkids to just anyone. Nic allows us to enjoy our breaks away in the knowledge that our little family are safe and happy.

Fedelma Moore

Our pets are precious to us so to find a wonderful dog walker in Nic is a weight lifted. Comfort is now more settled at home when I am at work, and looks forward to her daily walks. We are so glad we found Highworth Pet Care, thank you.

Steph Geeson

Bruce and Ellie love Nic! Nic is always happy to offer hints and tips too. We don’t worry about going away for the weekend and leaving Ellie (cat) – we know that Nic the Cat Whisperer will look after her!

Sam Wells

Two years ago we rescued a stray Staffie cross male, age unknown. He’s has proved to be a magnificent dog but also a huge challenge, wow, what a journey. With expert guidance & patience from Nic he now walks beautifully with her when we are away or rushed off our feet. I cannot recommend Highworth Pet Care enough, if you are thinking about using this vital service, go for it :-))
