what the cats see

kenilworth Catteries Orchard Cattery is set within an old orchard dating back to the early 1900s, when it used to be a market garden.
Although most of the trees have now gone, some of the original fruit trees dating back to those days remain today.

There is a lovely really old cherry tree providing an intricate umbrella of branches offering a haven for the birds and squirrels, quite often we see woodpeckers, sparrow hawks and pheasants, although pigeons seem to have made it their home. We have a race most summers to see who can get to the cherries first!, we often loose!, they cheat and eat the cherries before they are ready! all providing entertainment for the cats.

for Banbury catteries We also have 2 resident friendly female geese, Matilda and Daisy both having a different personality that keep the cats amused on a daily basis. They are getting on a bit now and are both well in their twenties, they are like two grumpy old women waddling around. Don't be alarmed to see them by the main reception of the cattery, they have come for their "go cat biscuits" and will soon go away again.

accommodation

Boarding Cattery Stratford upon Avon Boarding Cattery Banbury Each spacious chalet has a wooden ladder leading up to a large platform area, where most cats choose to sleep this is also where your cat can loaf around and view the outside through the chalet window.

Through this window they also have free access to an identically covered outside chalet, which leads to a sun platform where they can dream and take in the serenity and views of the private garden and orchard.

Even if it is raining they can still enjoy the fresh air and watch the geese without getting their paws wet!

For cats that are elderly, disabled or those that might struggle with ladders, there are some specially adapted chalets which have floor level access from the inside to the outside areas.

sleeping

Kineton cattery All cats have a choice of sleeping area. They can use the upper platform or they can sleep at floor level.

Most cats though prefer to sleep higher up so they can keep a watchful eye on whats going on.

The chalets are warm and dry with heated pads provided as standard (no extra charge) during the winter months and when the climate dictates or when special needs arise.

cattery bishops itchington Although we can provide cat beds and bedding, they are never the same as their own home comforts, so please bring a small bed, special blanket or old jumper which will have a familiar smell on it. Igloo beds are ideal, as long as they are in a good, clean and Flea free condition.

Last thing at night all cats are checked before the main lights are turned out and a number of low level "night lights" are left on, so the cats are not completely in the dark.

comforts

cattery in Warwick We want your cats to be as settled as they possibly can which is why all owners are encouraged to bring some of their cat's familiar home comforts with them, such their favourite small toys, scratching posts, special treats if they have them.

Any of these items will help your cat settle down and enjoy their stay, especially if it's your cat's first time in a cattery. We also have gentle music playing on low in the background to help them feel more at home, which the cats seem to like.
