Accommodation for Cats
Your cat stays in a spacious walk-in enclosure with multiple levels.
The floor has plenty of space for food bowls and litter trays. The second level has a comfy bed. The third level has a viewing platform with a window and day bed. Two cats (from the same household) can easily share an enclosure. Please discuss sleeping arrangements with our staff if you have more than two cats, or are not sure how well your two cats will get on together. For some shorter stays or in peak times, some of the enclosures may be only single level.
Some of our older guests may have trouble jumping up and they can be provided with easy to use steps or single level accommodation if needed. The cattery is climate controlled to keep it cool in summer and toasty warm in winter. All cats have play time twice daily but there is no direct contact with other cats. Please enquire at reception to have a tour of the cattery.
Diet – You can supply your own food if required. We supply Hill Science Diet as standard and Premium tinned foods. We have a full range of Hills Science and prescription diets available for purchase if your cat has special needs.
