Margaret and Colin are listed with International Cat Care. Your pets are assured of the highest standard of care required by them. The cattery is built to their latest guidelines and is constructed and managed to their exacting requirements. We are also licensed and inspected annually by our local Council. Margaret has a certificate in small animal care and her life-long dream was to own a cattery and all pets are treated as her own!
The cattery is next to our house which is on a little smallholding just outside the village of Nebo, half way between Porthmadog and Caernarfon.
We have 11 units to house 2 cats sharing from the same home and 2 units to cater for 4 cats from the same home. All units have heated indoor chalets and covered outdoor play areas The indoor bedrooms have heat lamps, bed shelves, a large bed for each pet, fleeces, hooded beds if needed, litter trays, food and water. A viewing shelf provides entertainment on rainy days!
Each unit has a generous outdoor covered area for cats to play in when they want to, with shelves,toys, chairs and tables plus lots of cosy blankets to snuggle in and with a view of our bird-filled garden. Each unit has a full-height sneeze barrier preventing contact with other pets, and there is a security corridor the whole length of the cattery. Heating by heat lamps usually on 24/7 or to each pet's needs. Heat pads provided for delicate cats.
The cattery is constructed to allow for thorough daily cleaning, and all units are cleaned and disinfected for new guests. A vaccination certificate for flu and enteritis is needed unless stated otherwise by your vet.
Our local vets recommend us and our own vets are on call 24/7 and we care for cats on medication including insulin. All cats are treated as individuals and are cared for to the highest standards - we talk to your pets and stroke them (if allowed!) and generally make them feel at home.
We specialise in the care of nervous and elderly cats.
All pets are treated to the same food they have at home, following the same regime. If their diet is prescription or gourmet - please bring this along. All furries are brushed daily if they appreciate the service!
