8 reviews of Kitten to Cat in English
Every time I have been to Kitten to Cat, the waiting room has been immaculately clean. The nurses and reception staff have always been polite to me, and I never feel rushed during the consults even though half the time I end up babbling like a crazy woman! Both vets clearly have a special knack for dealing with scared kitties. I am grateful to have found a practice where both my cat and I feel comfortable.
We went to the vet and they helped us. I appreciate their help, my cousin was so worried.. and I was nervous what will happen. But after several procedures and one injection the vet gave us the kitten and we all got back home. My cousin was really thankful that everything was ok. I am happy that I helped her and I hope in the future there would be no problems like this.
All I can say is what an excellent vets! I arrived with a cat covered in sick who was whisked away from me and cleaned (along with her carrier) whilst I had a coffee. My cat hates vets but strutted around the surgery with her tail held high and "vibrating" which Wanda reliabily informs me she is excited! She will need a lot of treatment to come and I am happy to say my baby is in safe hands. If you have a cat or kitten and you want expert care from caring professional staff, then this is the vet for you. I would recommend anyone who has a cat to go and experience for yourself how good they are.
I have cats all my life and have been lucky enough to have had good experience with the vets I have used. When I moved to Richmond, I came across Kittten to Cat by chance. I have now been using it for over 2 years and every experience I've had has been positive. My cats belong to the 'fit club' and are regular visitors, have regular weight checks, dietry advice and also use the boarding facility.
All the staff are fabulous. They appear to adore all the cats that come through the door, they get to know them and understand them. I have great confidence in all the staff and would not hesitate to recommend the business to anyone who owns cats.
It is great to see staff who are so caring and interested in my cats. Along with this, they demonstrate expertise and are keen to educate. A highlight was the cat behavioural psychology talk that was undertaken at the hall opposite the clinic.
I have recommended it to other cat lovers and they have all said they would not go back to a standard vets.
Last time I checked there were a lot more reviews :)
Anyway I took my 10 month kitten for a second opinion. All the staff were really friendly and I went to stroke smoky she immediately wanted to jump out the box and explore which is something she doesn't usually do! The staff all love cats and fussed over smoky which she absolutely loved!
Smoky has been on numerous trips as she is quite poorly I came to cat to kitten for a second opinion as a sound diagnosis had not yet been made! It is the only time smoky has been completely calm and happy even when they took her temperature! After a discussion with the vet she explained possible causes and smoky will be going back soon for tests! I am very happy not only with how they interacted with smoky but also how they interact with clients of the human variety too! They helped set my mind at ease about my cat's health and eased my concern over getting a second opinion!
Everything at this practice has been designed with cats in mind from the sofa's where your cat can sit next to you, to the felliway plug in's throughout the surgery and the array of cats toys on sale!
Over all I would highly recommend this vets. and by the sounds of smoky's purrs while there I assume she does too!

Kitten to Cat is an excellent cat-only veterinary surgery located in Kew Gardens. The surgery is designed to make the whole experience less stressful for cats and everything has been extremely well thought out, from the feliway sprayed throughout the surgery to the sofas in the waiting room designed so that your cat carrier can be placed off the ground, as cats feel safer higher up.
Both my cats are patients at Kitten to Cat and my Burmese loves visiting due to all the attention that the staff lavish on her. You can tell that all the vets are cat-lovers and that makes the whole experience so much more enjoyable. My Maine Coon has stayed in the cattery on a few occasions and for a cat that can't abide being brushed, she always comes back looking extremely well groomed with her nails perfectly trimmed. Little touches, like the Christmas cards, health club and handmade reminders to book your cats in for a booster make this vets a touch above all the rest and after using them I could never ever go back to all animals vet!
Kitten to Cat is a brilliant vet for cats. They provide excellent advice just in case you're worried about your cat doing weird things (and don't laugh at you for asking silly questions). I'm sure that because they are cat only, it makes a visit to a vet less stressful as your cat wouldn't see or sense dogs around.
They diagnosed my cat Bolli of a urinary problem very quickly and gave him great follow up care after his operation.
Fantastic little touches like Xmas cards, texting of reminders of worming visits and brilliant free talks on animal behaviour & dealing with senior cat, in the hall across the road, also make Kitten to Cat worth registering with.
The vets & nurses are all cat owners too and have a very calming influence on the cats.
I can't say that Bolli loves going there, but once he's out of his carrier, he wanders around the consultation room quite happily, so I wonder what all the fuss is about. I'm sure if he could speak he'd also give Kitten to Cat a great rating!
Kitten to Cat is London's only cat only veterinary clinic.
OK, so I am the owner of Kitten to Cat so biased, but I can say that everyone who I talk comments how their cats are less stressed here. I've designed the clinic entirely around cat behaviour to reduce the stress. Of course eliminating the sight, smell and sound of dogs takes care of the biggest cause of stress, but we also pump feline pheremones into the air to keep patients in a blissful state and staff are trained to take their time in consults, dealing with matters on the cat's terms.
As well as all modern surgical facilities we have a retail section with cat toys and fun gifts for the cat obsessed.
We also have boarding facilities that are monitored by web cam so you can check up on your cats while you're away.
