Cattery Accommodation

Our boarding cattery has been built with the comfort of your cats in mind. We have 19 chalets which can accommodate one or two cats from the same household. They are full height chalets with shelves in both the sleeping quarters and exercise areas for your cat to snooze or sun themselves on. The sleeping quarters are heated and insulated to keep them snug and warm. All chalets have opaque sneeze barriers for privacy and to prevent cross infection. Your cat will be provided with beds lined with a comfy cushion, fleecy blankets, scratching posts and toys to keep them amused. They will be regularly checked on throughout the day and made a fuss of to make sure that their stay is enjoyable.

All cats entering the boarding cattery must have up to date vaccinations against Feline Flu and Enteritis. The vaccination card must be brought with you on arrival. We also request that your cat has been treated for fleas and worms prior to boarding. 

All male cats over the age of 6 months must be neutered.

Each cat will have a daily chart to monitor litter tray use, feeding and any health issues that may arise. We stock a variety of wet and dry food and meals are served twice a day. If your cat prefers specific food or a prescription diet this will need to be provided.

If your cat has its own bed, basket, blanket or toys with which they are familiar with, please feel free to bring these along to make them feel more at home.

What some of our customers are saying about us

Our kitten spent a week at Charlie's Cattery earlier this summer. The booking process was easy and thorough though making sure they had all the details they could need. Covid procedures were well thought out for our drop off/collection . The cattery was spotless and each cat had a lovely area to explore during their stay. Janet and Tracey were so welcoming on arrival as my son was a little teary at leaving his playmate for a week, but the ladies were so lovely at reasurring us both. During the week they were very quick to respond and happy to give us an update/photos to reassure my children. We will definitely be using Charlie's again.

I can't recommend Charlie's Cattery highly enough - the owners Trace​y & Janet are such cat lovers, with an equally caring and professional approach. They've decorated and fitted out this new cattery gorgeously, with plenty of options for cats to sit, sleep, climb or hide if they wish. Lots of lovely things to look at out the windows too, and as a bonus they will play to keep them entertained providing you are happy for this interaction. My two 5-year old moggies loved their first stay recently and I look forward to using the services of Charlie's Cattery again!

My cat has just returned from staying at Charlie's for 5 days. The booking process was easy and professional and communication was great. My mum took my cat in and collected him. She said the ladies were lovely, the accommodation was clean and smelt fresh and that my cat seemed immediately settled. I saw several photos of my boy on Facebook and via email during his stay which was lovely and helped put my mind at rest being the first time I had left my cat. I would highly recommend.

We've just picked up our 2 cats after their 10 day 'holiday' and can't recommend Charlie's Cattery highly enough... the place is spotlessly clean, the booking, drop-off/collection process easy and Tracey and Janet clearly love the cats. Both cats were relaxed, looking healthy and showed no signs of stress... they had obviously received lots of loves and cuddles in our absence! A big bonus for us is that the ladies would give our boy, Vinny, his insulin injections 2x per day, which took away a lot of our worry, and our little lady, Daisy, came back far more sociable and affectionate than when we dropped her off! Well done Tracey and Janet, we'll definitely be back and will be recommending you to anyone looking for a cattery.

We have recently left our cat with Tracey and Janet for a couple of weeks and the service was impeccable. Very prompt and professional communication all the way from the first enquiry to the day when we collected our cat. Our Louis has great time, was very well taken care of and made us very comfortable to take him there again when needed. We got nearly daily email reports and pictures of him playing and having fun. Very professional service from a local cattery, glad I have found them online and will definitely use them again. Thank you Tracey and Janet, well done!
