Our Clients Reviews

Amazing service, highly recommend!

Recently used Phil for a collection and drop off of a BSH kitten from Preston to London Could not fault them one bit and they have a genuine care and passion for what they do.


Excellent pet taxi service

Phil is a friendly gentleman. He picked us up from doggy day care on time. In fact, he was 10 minutes early, which is great. It was a comfortable journey for my dog and me. Will definitely make use of his services in the future.


Great service

Was nervous about having a stranger looking after our cat but Phil clearly loves animals and our cat, who can be quite nervous, was no worse for wear on our return from a short holiday. Phil visited before our break and was reassuring, helpful and friendly. Would definitely use him again.


First class cats and kittens

I have been following Hoptonpaws on Facebook for over 5 years and have seen such amazing cats and kittens. Never did I think I would ever get my own Hoptonpaws baby. Well I am now an owner of a Cream British shorthair boy called Hugo and I couldn’t be happier. You can tell that Phil and Bev absolutely adore their cats and they are part of their family. I loved visiting them and seeing how well loved they all are. Hugo has a fantastic temperament and I think this is due to Phil and Bev’s love and caring environment he has been brought up in. I would highly recommend, thank you so much Phil and Bev



A friend recommended Phil and Hoptopaws to me not long after My rescue cat had passed. Im so glad she did as I now have 2 beautiful BSH girls and a very good friend . Phil & Bev are breeders of integrity with the welfare of their cats at the forefront of everything they do. I got Chloe in May 2020 in lockdown. Without Phil being able to transport her i would never have been able to get her as im in Scotland and then baby Willow this year in April. My neighbors also have 2 Hoptonpaws babies too now after meeting mine. I cannot recommend Hoptonpaws highly enough to anyone looking to get a BSH, don’t let location be a barrier if you want a happy healthy kitten.


Wonderful Service Highly Recommend!

I contacted Phil based on recommendations when looking for someone to collect our new British Shorthair Kittens, as I don’t drive and our breeder lived a considerable distance away. I am so glad I did! As a nervous first-time cat parent I felt incredibly anxious about the whole process, but Phil soon put me at ease and communicated brilliantly in the days beforehand. On the day itself, our kittens arrived in a calm, happy state, and Phil and his wife talked me through the paperwork from the breeder and gave several pointers on life with kittens which was much appreciated as they are both incredibly knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Hopton Paws to anyone looking for pet transport, and will use them again myself if ever I need to.

A man and his dream job…

Phil came to me on high recommendation to transfer a new kitten 500km across the country and it’s no wonder why. His customer service was impeccable… it’s his passion for pets that really stands out though. This isn’t a business for Phil, it’s a love affair! It was obvious that he and my kitten had developed a bond in transit… it was a delight to watch them interact. My new fur baby slept the whole night through on the bed… a sign he was exhausted from the trip but also proof that he’d taken it all in his stride! I’d never move another pet without a call to Phil!!!


Excellent breeder, over the moon with my cats

I have got two white BSH kittens from Phil and Bev and cannot recommend them enough, I am so in love with my new babies. Phil showed me his incredible set up as I was so wary about choosing a good breeder that treated the cats well. I certainly hit the jackpot, Phil has kept me constantly up to date with the kittens progress and explained everything I needed to know, spending a lot of time chatting to me on the phone. The cats are really well socialised and completely litter trained. I was introduced to the kittens mum and dad, who were gorgeous, but then all the cats that they have are, a real credit to Phil and Bev with all the work they have put into the cats. Thank you so much for letting me have two of your precious babies, I couldn’t have asked for a better breeder.


Beautiful Kittens from a wonderful breeder.

I cannot recommend Hopton Paws Pet Services highly enough! My family and I have just bought the most beautiful British Shorthair kitten from Phil and his wife. She is absolutely beautiful. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel ever so welcome. Both the parents were available to view as well as their amazing set up. Nothing was too much trouble. Good reputable breeders are hard to find but I would have no doubt in recommending Hopton Paws if you want an outstanding kitten that has come from a caring home.


First class

Phil was recommended to me on social media to pick up our new kittens as we couldn’t collect ourselves due to lockdown. He was fantastic, really helpful and knowledgable collecting our 2 kittens from Manchester and Birmingham before delivering them safely to us in Rugby. Not only providing a transport service he checked paper work and gave advice. Great guy would recommend this service to anyone.

Very highly recommended and would without doubt use Phil again.
