About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsHamsters, Mice etc.

I am very passionate and attentive to my pets so I put the same quality of care in the pets I look after. Pets are kept in a warm, safe, clean and peaceful environment. Are handled on a daily basis, and will get all-round attention they need.


Pets should be brought and kept in their own cages so that they settle in an environment known to them providing security and reducing anxiety. Additional two and three tier Ferplast cages are kept just in case.


If a pet requires a ball or open environment to run around in that is available. Around 1-2 hours open running space for nocturnal and daytime animals or in the ball. Depending on the owners preference.

Health & Hygiene:

Cages are washed and disinfected with pet safe products once a week or as requested. I will only keep a limited number of pets. I do not take in sick or injured animals but will give prescribed medicine and extra care. Fresh fruit and veg given every day such as: Broccoli, carrots, lettuce. Meat: scramble or boiled egg, plain chicken, meal worms, variety of fruit. Rice or pasta offered. A variety of nuts: brazil, hazel, depending on what is safe for your pet. Pets own main food is preferred on a daily basis. Can provide dry food and Willow sticks to nibble on.

I can not recommend Ruby’s Rodent Retreat highly enough. Timmy our lone Degu has just boarded there for the past week. The care and dedication of Ruby and her family are exceptional. I think Timmy has been at the Ritz equivalent of the Degu world!! Please use you will not be disappointed 😀😀

After a road accident my cat suffered a broken pelvis and required 6 weeks cage rest. As I work and couldn't be with my cat during the day, I used Ruby's rodent retreat's sitting service to give my cat some company during the boring days locked in a cage. Each day I came home, The cage and litter tray had been cleaned And water changed plus she had been played with as her toys were with her in the cage. They look after your pets as if they were their own, I think probably better than I could. I can completely recommend them for the love and attention they give .
