Our Facilities ~ Tender Loving Care

We are close to a veterinary clinic and also have access to 24 hour veterinary care. 

All the homes are carpeted with easy cleaning carpet tiles, have igloo beds and are furnished with cat scratching posts and toys which will keep even the most active cat occupied.

We currently have 19 rooms which are each at least 1 metre wide, 1.3 metres deep and 1.8 metres high.

During the day the rooms are bathed in plenty of natural light and night lights are provided to help your cat settle into its new surrounds.

Covers are dropped during the night and bad weather to keep your cats warm and dry.

All our feline guest accommodation is cleaned every day.

We supply veterinary recommended Hills Science Plan or Royal Canin pellets, if your cat(s) prefer something else please supply it.

Water is supplied in stainless steel bowls.

If permitted, we like to give our guests lots of cuddles and TLC.

Start your holiday knowing your cat(s) are safe and well cared for.
