Helpful tips for successful boarding

and further information

We hope you find some help on this page with tips on how to help your cat settle in to their holiday home along with our latest policies.

Be Strong and Positive

Our cats feed off our emotions, so when we take them to a cattery they don't understand we may be a bit upset because we're going to miss them...

As we usually take them to the vets in their carriers, by the time they reach the cattery and we fuss all around them, they can be quite convinced something terrible is about to happen!

The difference in 'settling in' time between a pet left by a confident relaxed owner compared with a loving but emotional owner can be huge.

REMEMBER your cat is going on a relaxing holiday too, waited on hand and paw. 

Also for your peace of mind, you can check in on Facebook or contact us at anytime for an update on their wellbeing. 

Carriers are for fun...

Have you thought that nearly every time you pop your cat into a cattery you are taking them to the vet? No wonder they don't always think it's a good idea...

Try putting the carrier where you feed your cat or put there bed on top of it so that it can be associated with good things and homely smells. 

For young cats and kittens it's good practice to load them into the carrier before meal times  and carry it to where you are going to feed them. 

Try having one room for playtime and take them to and from that room in their carrier. Soon they'll forget that once a year they go to the vets in it!  

Latest Covid Update

Following our most recent Covid-19 risk assessment the cattery is now open to visitors, however if you or anyone in your party are showing signs of infection we ask you not to visit the cattery. A delivery and collection service is available.


We must have seen proof of kitten or annual vaccinations prior to boarding. These can be in the form of an email, photocopy or the actual card.

Worming & Flea Treatments

We ask that your cats receive a wormer and flea treatment prior to their holiday.
