Additional Information

All cats require up-to-date vaccinations.


Our guests are fed in the early morning and early evening and are fed quality premium wet and dry foods. We feed our guests their normal diet in accordance with their owner’s instructions. However, you will need to provide your own food if your cat requires a special prescription diet. Our feline friends are sensitive to chlorine water, so we provide them daily fresh and filtered water.

Cat Carriers & Baskets

Always transport your cat in a suitable secure pet carrier unit. Do not carry your cat in your arms or in any old box. You may borrow a suitable carrier from us should you not have one.

Cats on Medication

We are happy to administer most medications during your cat’s stay. Please contact us to discuss your pet’s needs prior to booking

Our Guests Always Leave Relaxed and Happy

Didn’t like been locked in a cage, but my three cats loved it. They told me the food was great ,beds were soft and cuddly and cathy was like a mammy to them. Silly me for trying to stay there myself.

I have been leaving my cat Clinton with Cathy and Gary for years now. Great service, friendly people and one of the most flexible catteries I have dealt with with regards to drop off and pick up times.

Always happy to leave my cat with Cathys Cattery, he comes back relaxed and playful. Also enjoy the peace of mind having a 24 hour vet Gary on premises.

I just picked up Pixel from Cathys Cattery. She is totally relaxed and happy. Thank you Cathy for looking after her so well. She really appreciated the quiet surroundings and the fact that it’s a cats only! Will definitely be back again. Monica C.
