Our catteryWe are a cattery / boarding kennels based in the Herts/Essex area and our aim is to make your cat’s stay with us a happy one.

To ensure this, the cats are given warm spacious accommodation, completely separate from the kennels. They have large, heated, double-sized rooms, with 24-hour access to an outside, escape proof run.

Behind the cats in these pictures, you can see the hatchway giving free access to their indoor accommodation.

The catteries have concrete walls between (sneeze barriers), not wire. This is to avoid transmission of disease.

CCTV surveillance cameras are in operation throughout the premises 24 hours a day, to protect the safety of the cats and of our staff.

Cats from one family can stay togetherYour cat will have his or her own private room, although if you have more than one cat in your family, our catteries are large enough for them to stay together, as you can see here.

We really want your pet to feel part of our family whilst he is with us.

Toys and playthings galore are supplied and if your cat chooses a particular favourite, he will be able to take it home with him. If your cat is staying with us over Christmas, he will receive a Christmas present and if it is his birthday during a stay, let us know and we will give him a birthday present to take home.

All cats are insured while staying with us, to cover vets’ bills, for example. Full details are available on request.

Please note that all cats must be fully vaccinated, including against cat flu. Bring your vaccination cards with you when you book in.
