We have good first class bedding, but if your cat has his/her own bedding you may wish to bring it along as most cats like their own bedding and it will help them feel at home.

Cats are fed twice a day and kittens three times a day. All tastes are catered for including special diets.

Opening And Visiting
We are open 24hrs a day and visiting is 9am to 6pm Tuesday-Sunday. We are closed Monday, with prior arrangement cats can still be checked in/out to meet any urgent needs. Visitors are welcome to inspect the cattery 24hrs a day (no appointment needed except Mondays).

All cats are groomed on Sunday mornings by a trained groomer at no extra charge.  

We will only accept cats with certificates of 'in date' inoculations for Feline Infectious Enteritis and upper respiratory infections (Cat Flu).

No cat suffering from, or suspected to be suffering from, any infectious or contagious disease can be accepted. All cats will be examined on arrival, but the proprietor reserves the right to refuse admission to any cat showing signs of ill-health pending advice from a Veterinary Surgeon. Owners appreciate that this is essential to safeguard all the cats boarded. Veterinary attendance is assured (should this be necessary) and any treatment prescribed by a Veterinary Surgeon can be continued during the cats' stay.
