We are so happy with our silver tabby boy! Not only is he beautiful - he settled in really quickly and has such a lovely temperament, plus he was superbly litter trained right from when he arrived home. Nicki was very helpful in the weeks before collecting him, sending us several picture updates and making sure we were prepared for his arrival - and of course taking such good care of the litter in their early stages. Thank you Nicki!!

We picked up our gorgeous silver tabby boy, Lloyd, last week. He's amazing, so lovely and friendly, following me around and lying next to one of us if we are watching television. Everyone who has seen him has commented on how beautiful he is and his fantastic markings.

She is really beautiful, and has a lovely temperament , funny, mischievous, and affectionate, and a great credit to you and your careful nurturing before she came to us.
Thank you again Nicki - we are really happy and grateful that we found both you and Misty.

We picked up Willow, our silver spotted girl, one week ago. Already one of the family, she has settled in brilliantly. A very pretty cat and the envy of all our cat loving friends. Thanks to a great start by Nicki, Willow has a great temperament. Very playful and already very affectionate. Thanks again.

We picked up our little man last week and what can I say, he is the most amazing kitten. He settled in so well, he is so friendly, he loves sitting on my 6 year olds bed and having cuddles. He has had lots of young visitors and nothing phases him, he is the perfect kitten for a young family. Thank you Nicki for all the hard work, love and affection you gave him before we collected him. You provided us with lots of advice and guidance to help him settle in which we followed and it's credit to you that he has settled in so well. Thank you again Nicki

Hi Nicki, we picked up Kenzo & Kasper at the beginning of Sept and they are the most gorgeous, friendly cats. They have settled in so well with our other cat Snifflick. She occasionally puts them in their place when they get a bit too boisterous but the boys seem to love her. They have a great personalities, Kenzo is the bigger of the 2 now. Thanks for doing such a great job with them before we got to take them home.

Thank you so much Nicky (and family) for helping us have simply the best and most adorable kittens- we are all so happy! We picked Marshmallow and Flump up end of June (brother & sister), and from the minute they came into the house, they have been playful, sociable, loving and have just made it so easy for us all. The boys are totally besotted with them and they entertain us constantly with their playfulness and curiosity.....!. From the word go they ate, used the litter tray, were adventurous and have handled new people so well - amazing and all testament to the hard work, effort & love I know you put in. The kitten pack was hugely helpful and the food provided an extra help. Thank you Nicky and would recommend any our your kittens 100%.

We picked up our silver spotty kitten, Monty, around 2 weeks ago and we couldn't be happier!! He has the best little personality and loves tummy tickles, as well as climbing up my legs which I don't love so much :o) We was so pleased with the services which we received from you along with your professional advice. Thank you so very much!
4:49 AM on November 29, 2016
We are loving our wonderful kittens Monty 4 months (smoke tabby Inkblotz) and Alfie 3.5 months (silver tabby Isaac). They have the most lovely personalities, happily lying on their backs for tummy tickles and seeking our company for cuddles. They are also inseparable companions up to all sorts of kitten mischief - who knew headboards were climbing frames?!

We have had Imani ( Saffy ) who is three and a half months for nearly three weeks here at home. She is a delight , a bundle of energy, a bundle of mischief and is very lovable . She was rather tentative for a couple of days but then took over the home and us . Many thanks .

Nicki we have had a fabulous summer with our new kittens Woody(Indigo)and Dolly(Iris)
Our older cats Buzzby(Enigma) and Baby(Elisha) are gradually getting used to them, although Baby gets a bit cross with them. Woody loves watching football and paws at the ball on the TV. He has a wonderful temperament recommended by your daughter. Even though they aren't brother and sister they really look out for each other. A lovely furry family. Thank you.

Hi nicki. Baby (eclipse) has now been with us a month and she seems very happy. I didn't think BSH were lap cats but she seems to like falling asleep on my husband when he is on the sofa! She is a beautiful cat and has such a lovely temperament. we are so pleased to have her with us. Jess

Nicki, thank you kindly for letting me give your Silver Tabby (Spotty) boy kitten 'Impulse' (mum is Gracie), a new home last week. He is the most beautiful kitten with deep orange coloured eyes and totally adorable!
He didn't take long to settle in to our home with all the new sights, smells and sounds and I'm grateful he's house trained and very people-friendly; clearly you work hard with your kittens before letting them go to their new homes. Giving us 2 weeks of his special kitten food to take away too, was an added bonus, thank you.
Best bit of all tho.....listening to him chirrup away with my 2 Silver Tabby Stripeys - it's like listening to a conversation between 3 R2D2's! Hours of fun! Simply gorgeous! Thank you!

We recently purchased a silver tabby from Nicki. He is a beautiful playful happy kitten. He has obviously been very well looked after and trained by Nicki in a happy home environment We are delighted we found her website and our kitten. We would recommend her to anyone.

Our new addition, Tybalt (Polesden Silver Ivanhoe) has settled in to life with us very quickly. He snuggles up with the children and loves to play with them. He is adorable, friendly and the cutest little creature. It feels like we've had him forever!

do you retire your cats to someone who wants a cat ?
and how much do they cost ?
I would be happy to give one a home if need be

When I brought Polsden Silver Gumdrop (Teddy Rose) home my main concerns was how my existing beloved Silver Spotty Ellie would react. I had no need to worry, with a little time and gentle introductions they are developing a lovely relationship. Teddy ventured through the cat flap and into the secure run tonight, which was lovely. She is such a gentle loving little kitten with bright amber eyes. Thanks Nicki, it's great to have Teddy Rose in our home.

Rupert (Gandolf) has settled in very well indeed and we love him. He initially cried quite a bit and was rather nervous of being handled but after a few days he obviously felt at home. He now seeks our company, purrs very loudly, is absolutely fine about being picked up and stroked. He loves our three original shorthair cats, in particular Stanley. The girls are less enthusiastic about him but he takes it in his stride! He is very confident and adventurous and loads of fun. We feel very lucky to have him.

Freddie (Fortune) is a little legend and has settled in.. and taken over much... much more quickly than i would ever have imagined. Everyone that meets this little terror falls madly in love with him and I wanted to thank you so much for giving me such a well adjusted and beautiful little kitten. I think is all down to the care and love you and your family had for him before he came home with me and I would like to thank you once again,

Hi Nicki, just wanted to let you know that Oscar (fiasco) has settled in very well. Cant believe he has only been with us for a month, he gets on really well with our dog Ruby, will try and send you a photo they are so cute together. Thank you so much for such a lovely well tempered cat - he is just adorable. At first he did not want cuddles or to be picked up but that was not an option, he cant be that cute and not cuddled!
6:26 AM on February 6, 2014
Hi Nicki, well Bamboo is now 6 months old, and what a character. He has fitted in great with us and now we can't imagine him not being here. Caused chaos with my Christmas tree though!!!! He still carries round his special baubles!!! Still waiting for him to sit on my lap - not sure it will ever happen - he just likes to sit an watch us - he is in charge!!!! He is a real beautiful boy and everyone comments on him. Love him to bits!!!

We have had Silver Flame for 10 days now but it feels like he has always been a part of our family. He settled very quickly after a few days, sleeping on our laps & bed purring loudly with contentment. We can't believe how relaxed & affectionate he is, he loves being close to us always and is so beautiful & cuddly. He has an amazing temperament, so sweet. He has far exceeded our expectations, and we are blown away by him. Thank you so much Nikki & Eclipse & Duke for a very special kitten who will be loved and cherished always.

Can't believe we have had Tommy (fiddler) over a week now ! He has settled in very well. As his name suggests (fiddler) is in to everything and loves getting into mischief!!! He also loves cuddles and is very affectionate , he is such a cutie and everyone who comes to visit loves him(we have to check their pockets and handbags before they leave).
Would like to thank you and your family for giving us the opportunity to home one of your lovely kittens he really is a credit to you , we will definitely recommend you and know where to go if we decided tommy needs a playmate (very tempting)

Baby's new party trick is shredding her foil balls-monkey!
5:44 PM on February 17, 2013
So funny reading the previous post about Baby playing fetch with balls of foil & putting them in shoes because that's exactly what our Pixie (Brie) loves to do too. Pixie is now just over three years old & is thriving. I wonder if Baby is related to Pixies mum Anya? Hope you are all well at Polesden Cats xx

Buzzby(Enigma) and Baby(Elisia) will be six months old next week,and the last 3 months have been such a joy.They settled in so well and are so lively and cheeky. Boyson ,our 18 year old cat has gradually warmed to their charms. Buzzby climbed our Christmas tree and Baby goes mad for a ball of foil,carrying them in her mouth and putting them in peoples shoes!
The best part is when they are nuzzling and kneading our dressing gowns!
Thank you so much Nicki.
We will send you some pictures
