Christchurch boarding cattery is positioned in a way that allows our guests are to observe the garden activity throughout the day. Through careful planting and positioning we encourage birds to enter our garden and provide entertainment for our guests. The buildings are built to Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB) standards and are warm and natural. The cattery is open to the fresh air, but protected from the rain by clear external panels, which are removed on dry days.

Our standards are high; cleanliness is an obsession, attention to detail is the norm.



All of our guests are provided with a comfortable bed and fleece cushion. Heating is provided all year round to ensure that those chilly summer evenings do not catch us out.

As well as your choice of food, we provide a scratching post, toys, water and plenty of companionship. Because we are small our guests benefit from contact with the same person during their stay which helps reduce stress - feel free to bring in any items that will help your cat settle in his/her second home.
