There is always a supply of fresh water available.

Exercise and Play

Cats have unrestricted access to exercise by means of a cat flap to a outside Catio. By way of toys and enrichment, we provide ping pong balls and hanging plastic chains made from shower curtain hooks for your cats to enjoy. These are sterilised after use to prevent any cross-contamination. What’s more, digital radio is piped into every cat pen to relax and calm cats during their stay. If your cat has a favourite toy that you wish to bring with you that is also fine.

Bedtime Service

At night, we check all cats and spend some time playing and cuddling them. Every cat gets what we call a good night treat, so bedtime is always positive and a loving time for them as well and they go to sleep looking forward to the fun of the next day.

Illness and Vaccinations

We always ask that you mention any recent injury, illness, or any disability when you leave your cat with us. Bespoke requests including treatments or medicines are administered as per your veterinarian’s instructions. No extra charge is made for these requests, or any other special care required for their condition.


A current veterinary certificate of inoculation must be produced for inspection on your pet’s arrival.


All cats must have been inoculated against Feline Enteritis and cat flu within the last 12 months. It is also important that your cat has regular worm, and flea treatments – please supply the most recent dates treated and which products were used.


All cats staying with us are covered by our fully comprehensive insurance. If your cat is insured separately, please bring insurance details with you.
