Hi, my name is Jill and I have been running Padside Cattery for over 20 years. I have over 30 years experience with cats and other small animals. As the cattery is reasonably small (12 runs) I find I have the individual time needed for each cat, to ensure they settle well with me and therefore have a stress free time whilst in my care.
The cattery is licensed for 32 cats. All of our units comprise a large walk-in inside area with a cat-flap leading out to their own outside pen. Each standard unit is suitable for 2 to 3 cats from the same family. The inside area of each unit is equiped with a scratching post, toys and bedding together with a shelf that has a padded bed and overhead infra red heating lamp. In the outside area there are climbing posts which enable the cats to sit and watch the various other wildlife that we have around the cattery.
To Provide that Home from Home atmosphere we encourage our customers to bring in anything from home that will help their pets to settle in with us. This includes beds and any toys.
The photograph on the right shows our NEW Chalet which is built for large families, or long term stays. It is fully insultated, with a large run, giving lots of space to run around and view all of the wildlife
Some of our units can be interconnected in order to make a larger space and we also have two 'family units'. One of these is suitable for 3 to 4 cats and the second will easily take 6. Either of them provide an ideal space for long term stay or larger families.
