 Jill with one her guests in the new cattery     





Padside Cattery is a purpose built cattery, situated 2.5 miles off the main A59 Skipton-Harrogate Road near Blubberhouses. It is only a 20 minute drive away from Ilkley, Otley, Skipton and Harrogate.

The cattery is owned and run by myself, Jill Houseman, a retired Veterinary Nurse who makes sure that all of the cats receive individual attention, including grooming and any nursing or provision of medication.

The purpose built cattery building was opened in September 2018.  With underfloor heating throughout we will all stay very warm and cosy during the Winter months.  For more details visit 'The Cattery' page.

Licensed by North YorkshireCouncil we are proud to have been granted a 5* licence for 35 cats. Padside is in a quiet rural position well away from roads and traffic and there is lots of other wildlife around to add to the scenery.

License number C23/01317/ANBRDC.  Jill Houseman.
