As cat owners ourselves for over twenty years we treat each cat as if they
were our own, and pride ourselves on our first class service.
Each cat is special and treated as an individual.
We are committed to happiness, well being and health, while in our care.
Cats need more than just a place to stay, and a person to love them.
As a husband and wife team, we care for your cat from arrival to departure,
no employed staff and many different faces. Therefore a continuity of care.
Total attention to detail, cleaning, feeding and care of our guests guarantees
that your cat is well looked after, making as much as possible a
home from home for them. It also enables us to pick up on any potential
problems quickly. Your cat gets used to us and we are very aware if a cat
starts to behave differently.
All likes and dislikes are taken into account, based on information provided
by you the owner. Our cattery is situated within our garden and
beside a natural pond.
During times of hot weather we have cooling gel mats for the cats to lay on
also a misting system.
The chalets lead into an individual covered run area with
full height sneeze barriers.
Chalets are designed with your cat’s needs in mind. We know cats
like to have a quiet, protected area to hide and sleep, and being able to
jump up and down to different levels.
Each chalet has its own personal storage box, vet-bed bedding, toys,
and brushes if required etc.
(You are more than welcome to bring your own if you wish).
Everything your cat comes to stay with, goes home and does not get mislaid.
We encourage owners to settle their cats before leaving and make sure
everyone is happy. We do much more than just clean and feed.
We take the time to provide pampering, grooming, stroking and cuddles.
Each area has its own three tier scratching frame for that all important nail sharpening
and doubles up as a look out post.
There are breathtaking views over our beautiful natural pond with overhanging
trees and an abundance of wildlife in and out of the pond. Wild birds hop
in and out the bushes and reeds, whilst the fish keep an eye out for their
next feed. Not forgetting our resident ducks, poultry and aviary birds, who are
more than happy to entertain our feline guests!
Your cat will be able to enjoy the fresh air, listen
to music, and watch the world go by...We have single, double and
family chalets, (which are suitable for up to four cats, from the same household)
along with isolation facilities if it should be required.
As and when seasonable weather permits all our guests will have a pot of natural
grown wheat grass in their chalets. Some cat owners make the mistake of preventing
their cat from eating grass. There are various reasons for this,
one since they think it makes their cat ill or upsets their stomach.
This is an incorrect assumption and in fact the eating of grass followed by regurgitation
is a perfectly natural behaviour for all cats. Cats do not
possess the ability to separate meat from fur, bones or feathers before
Eating, so they have to eat the digestible parts along with the indigestible parts.
When the cat has finished digesting what he can, the rest
has to be removed from the system. To try to pass this through the
digestive tract could cause obstruction and severe illness so this is
where grass eating comes in.
The habit of eating grass triggers the natural process of regurgitation of indigestible
foods including its own fur balls which would otherwise
obstruct the system. This can appear to us humans as if the cat is being
violently ill but this is not the case and in fact is very beneficial.
