Our Cattery

Our Catteries:

We have two large indoor catteries – completely separate from the kennels, so the cats will not be disturbed by dogs barking. Our kennel and cattery staff have years of experience between them looking after both cats and dogs, so they are well equipped to cater for your every need. We offer the following excellent services for you and your cat:

• Fully licensed by the local authority
• Veterinary approved with a weekly veterinary check
• Heated catteries at no extra cost
• Fussy eaters catered for
• Long and short term boarding – no minimum stay
• Inspection welcome at any time during our opening hours – no appointment necessary.
• Medication dispensed at no extra cost
• Discounts given for long stay and multiple occupancy
• Collection and delivery service weekdays

Our Accommodation

Our cattery rooms are housed in two separate indoor buildings. All rooms are full height and approximately 2 metres x 1.2 metres in size. All rooms have a large shelf, a heat lamp, hygienic vinyl flooring, a sneeze barrier between the next cattery, a litter tray and a bed. Most have window views of either the gardens or the riding arena. All cats are housed individually except for those coming in as a family. Our catteries are quiet, spotlessly clean, warm and cosy.

FEEDING

Most of the cats are given a bowl of dried food which stays down throughout the day, plus wet food once or twice daily depending on their routine at home. We have a range of quality cat foods such as Whiskas, Felix, Iams and Go-cat. If your cat has special dietary requirements please discuss this with us as we may have a suitable alternative, otherwise you are more than welcome to supply your own food. We also always have a stock of canned tuna, mackerel and sardines as well as frozen fish and chicken, so don’t worry if your cat is a fussy eater - we can usually find something tempting!

HEATH AND HYGIENE

All cats must be fully inoculated and must have had a booster injection within the past twelve months. Proof of vaccinations must be provided on entry to the cattery. We will NOT accept any cat into the cattery without proof. More information on vaccinations can be found on our T & C’s page.

All catteries and litter trays are cleaned thoroughly daily with an anti-viral disinfectant. Clean litter is given each day. Cleanliness and hygiene are very important to us, and we take every step to prevent viral cross infection.

On entry to the cattery we will always ask for an emergency contact number – whether it be your own mobile number or that of a friend or relative should you be out of contact. Should your cat get sick or distressed in the cattery we will always ring this number to ask what course of action to take. If we are unable to contact anyone then we will use our own judgement and that of our vet, but it is always best to speak to someone that knows the cat where possible.
