Home from home Comfort

Individual suites
Cosy hand-knitted bedding
Private Outside area
Cat radio

Our main cattery has been re-decorated in May 2020.  All feline guests have their own spacious bedroom and sitting area, an open hatch (no cat-flap) allows your cat 24 hour access to their own covered and secure outside area, with scratch posts, litter tray and furniture to sit so they can watch the birds.

They can listen to “cat radio” and have plenty of comfy hand-knitted bedding and cat toys.  This is provided, although you are welcome to bring your pet’s own for familiarity and reassurance.

The cattery is heated/ air-conditioned and the temperature monitored for comfort.

For customers with a pair or trio of cats, the facilities are designed for sharing.  All ages of cats are catered for, including kittens (who have had at least their first set of vaccinations), and elderly or arthritic cats.

Both indoor and outdoor cats settle in well, due to the level of interaction given by our caring staff.  During our busy peak times, we use Feliway natural pheromone plug-ins to help create a calming environment in the Cattery.

We regularly post photos on our Facebook page so you can check out what your cats have been up to!
