We are a caring family run cattery located at North Boarhunt, which is near to Wickham and Fareham in the Hampshire countryside. Our nearest cities are Portsmouth, Southsea and Southampton.
We provide first class heated accommodation for cats in spacious Penthouse chalets all built to the latest C.E.I.H. model licence conditions. All our chalets are newly built and are large enough to accomodate families of two or three cats.
Being separated from their owners, cats are often distressed and need a lot of individual care and attention. We endeavor to make each cat feel at home. We give them lots of T.L.C. and will of course provide them with their favourite food and treats. Please bring along anything that your cat uses at home as this will help them settle in when they first arrive.
For creature comforts our Penthouses have a heated shelf and window which the cats seem to love. Lots of them sleep on the shelf rather than in their baskets.The Penthouses are themostatically controlled and ventilated to ensure that your cat can enjoy their stay whatever the season.
We endeavour to provide the best care, comfort and cleanliness for your pet and each new arrival will be given it's own personal profile that it is kept on our records for future visits. Any special dietary needs, medication, likes and dislikes will be respected during each stay.
We welcome visitors to the site prior to making a booking. We are open 7 days per week (including Bank holidays) from 0900 to 1700 for visitors. It is best to ring to let us know when you are are coming to see us so that we can make sure that we can welcome you to the site as soon as you arrive.
Please feel free to call us or send an e-mail if you would like more information.
