Designed by owner, Lisa Tivey, the cattery has been built to the highest standards set out by F.A.B. (Feline Advisory Bureau). Each pen comprises its own heated bedroom so that cats stay warm and snug on those cold days and nights and a spacious, personal exercise area. In the summer it is well ventilated and cool.
For interest, the pens have various levels for the cats to climb and windows to allow plenty of natural daylight. The units are separated by sneeze barriers and are made entirely of non-porous uPVC and glass to ensure no possible transfer of germs and eliminate any risk of cross contamination. For any cat who fancies themselves as a budding Houdini, all pens open out into a security corridor to foil any possible chance of escape.
We ensure that individual care and attention is given to each cat to allow their stay to be as comfortable and happy as possible. An Information Sheet for all guests is required at booking time to highlight their needs and allow each pet to be specifically catered for throughout their holiday. Food, bowls, toys, bedding, mats and litter trays are supplied, although cats are more than welcome to bring their own favourite things to make their pen a real home-from-home. Cuddles, strokes and loads of fuss are provided free of charge!
Viewing of the cattery prior to booking is very welcome and we are always happy to discuss any concerns you may have. Please contact us for further information, to arrange a viewing or to book. We all suggest that you contact us to check availability prior to booking your trip to ensure we are able to look after you pet/s while you plan to be away.

(We appreciate your understanding that we are open seven days per week and although we will try and agree upon appointment times set by the customer, this may not always be possible. We will however do our upmost to agree appointment times to suit all).

Cats must be brought into the cattery inside a pet carrier. We are happy to lend ours if required.
Boarding rates are for a period of up to 24 hours. If your cat(s) is/are collected later than time of arrival this may be classed as an extra day and boarding rates will apply (e.g. If arrival time for your cat(s) is 1pm, they should then be collected by 1pm on date of departure so to ensure not to incur another day’s fee).
Price includes food, throughout your cat’s stay, of complete dry biscuits supplemented with tinned / pouched food. If a specialised diet is required, the owner will be required to supply sufficient food for their cat(s) stay.
We recommend that cats are not fed for a few hours before traveling, as this may make them ill. We also always like to feed our guests on arrival to help settle them into their new surroundings.
