The cattery is situated well away from the kennels in a quiet area. We have 16 penthouse cattery suites and are licensed to look after 20 cats. Each cattery suite is big enough for two cats to share if they are from the same family. The sleeping area has a raised platform with an 'igloo' for your cat to hide in and a cat flap for your cats privacy. Their sleeping area then leads through to a spacious, covered external run that overlooks a garden containing lovely plants such as lavender that will stimulate your cats senses and gives your cat plenty of opportunity to observe the various wildlife. Litter trays are situated in the outside run too so your cat can keep their sleeping area nice and clean.
The cattery is light and airy and the sun reaches all of the external runs at various parts of the day so your cats will be able to enjoy a snooze in the sun (when it comes out!) However the inside remains nice and cool and the cattery can be heated during winter months. We are continuously monitoring the temperature in the cattery to make sure the conditions are perfect for our guests and they will always have access to their outdoor run no matter what the weather which is essential for their mental wellbeing.
Exercise and entertainment
We provide your cat with an enriching environment to ensure they do not get bored or depressed. They will be provided with various toys, climbing areas and suitable scratching posts and we will offer as much or as little human contact as they require so they feel like they are at home.
We are happy to feed your cat any diet you require. We do suggest that you bring in your cats normal food to ensure it doesn't disrupt their digestive system. However we can also provide food and have a well stocked range to try and mimic your cats normal diet and routine as best as possible. We will feed your cat as many times as you state, again to make sure that there is as little change to their normal routine as possible.
Medication and vaccinations
We can cater for cats that require medication or have special needs. Please contact us to discuss any special requirements your cat may have and we can assist wherever possible.
We insist that all cats are fully vaccinated against Feline Infectious Enteritis (FIE) also known as Feline Parvovirus, Feline Herpesvirus (FHV) and Feline Calicivirus (FCV) and will require the necessary boosters before being allowed to stay in the cattery 2 weeks prior to your cat's arrival at the very least to ensure maximum protection.
We will request to see your cats vaccination record where your cat should be clearly identified, preferably with their microchip number and proof that all relevant vaccinations have been administered.
Other creature comforts
We encourage you to bring your own bedding and any toys that your cat likes to play with and even something with your scent on it. It's important they have something from home that is familiar to help them settle and feel comfortable throughout their stay but of course there is plenty of comfy bedding and lots of toys at Haleswood if you didn't want to bring your own items. We will of course put tags on all belongings to ensure that nothing is misplaced.
We offer a local pet taxi service for an additional charge within a 5 mile radius where we can collect your dog and drop them back home for you too if required.
