We have 4 units :1 single and 3 double units.Our cattery can only house 7 cats at any one time so we are able to give your cat/s lots of attention and cuddles.It is a fully enclosed cattery with windows that are opened during the summer months.The roof over the runs and corridor is bronze polycarbonate sheeting (with protective sun shield paint )which protects the cats from harm full sun rays whilst still allowing in plenty of light.
We have walk in style sleeping units which are fully insulated and heated with modern panel heaters ( Temperature set to never fall below 18 Degrees C at all times during the winter months in sleeping area )Additional electric oil filled radiators are used in the corridors in exceptionally cold weather .All the walls are white plastic which enables them to be washed down and disinfected easily .The flooring is vinyl again which is easy to wash and disinfect .Each sleeping unit has its own wall panel heater it has its own thermostatic/temperature wall mounted control socket which means we are able to adjust it at anytime according to the weather conditions so you can be sure that your cat/s will always feel warm and cosy.
Due to temperatures recently and at times being exceptionally high we have now invested in an air conditioning unit ,this means that your cats will be able to stay nice and cool and in a comfortable temperature whilst in the cattery.
Inside each sleeping unit there is a raised shelf with fleece bedding ,a cushion and blanket , there is also a chair with cushion this allows your cat to be able to jump up onto the shelf. The double units have 2 shelves one either side,with the chair in-between.The flooring is vinyl.Each unit has a full height door which can be left open in summer (closed in winter) to which there is also a cat flap which allows your cats to be able to gain access to the runs 24/7 .(We have now installed bigger cat flaps in the doors for the larger generation of cats )In the double units the runs are 6 ft x 6 ft which is larger than the normal double size units,allowing plenty of room for your cat/s to jump around and play .There is a raised viewing shelf ,It has a chair with a cushion to allow cats to jump up onto the shelf plus there is a tiered scratch post/activity centre The single unit is 3.5 x 6 ft it does not have a chair but the activity centre is placed next to the viewing shelf to enable to cat to jump up onto it. we are able to make changes to make it easier for elderly or disabled cats to get on and off the shelves according to their ability .Just let us know and we will make those changes for your cat/s.
The walls on the bottom are solid white plastic and the upper walls is clear acrylic plastic which acts as a sneeze barrier,they are easily cleaned and disinfected. Two of the dividing walls have a large lockable cat flap which means we can open it up to accommodate a family of 3 or 4 cats.It is locked when not in use.All the runs have vinyl flooring.There is a safety corridor.
