Welcome to Cats Whiskers

About us

Cats Whiskers is a purpose-built, luxury boarding cattery situated in a quiet, secluded rural location on the edge of Southwell, yet only a short distance from the A612.

Designed and built to Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB) standards, the cattery also benefits from a CCTV security system and smoke detection alarms to ensure round-the-clock protection for your pets.

Cats are housed in separate, spacious, fully-lined and insulated chalets, each with its own thermostatically-controlled heater, set up to suit your cat's needs. Family-sized chalets can accommodate up to 4 cats from one family. There is a shelf and window in each chalet (2 in the family units) and additional facilities (scratching posts, shelves and sit boxes) in the individual covered runs. Removable hygienic, perspex "sneeze screens" between units ensure that whilst your cat can see its neighbour, no direct contact is possible.

Whilst beds and bedding are provided, to make your cat feel at home, it is recommended that you bring either its own bed, a favourite toy or an old jumper with which it is familiar.

Individual tastes are catered for and only quality food is served, prepared in hygienic conditions in the cattery's own kitchen. Adult cats are fed twice a day at strictly regular intervals. Old cats and kittens are fed according to their requirements.

We are obviously concerned for the health of all our cats and for this reason, no cat suffering from any infectious or contagious disease can be accepted. All cats will be examined on arrival and the proprietor reserves the right to refuse admission to any cats showing any signs of ill health pending advice from a Veterinary Surgeon. Should it prove necessary, veterinary attendance is assured, and any treatment prescribed by a Veterinary Surgeon can be continued during the cat's stay.

Un-neutered male cats over 7 months old cannot be boarded as they represent an infection hazard. All cats must be vaccinated against Feline Infectious Enteritis and upper respiratory infections (Cat Flu). Vaccinations and boosters must have been completed at least two weeks prior to boarding and an up to date vaccination certificate must be produced on arrival. As is the practise with all good catteries, a veterinary authorisation form must be signed for all new boarders.
