Top Cat Boarding Cattery is a family run cattery nestled in the beautiful Surrey Hills.  We are located in between Dorking and Reigate and easily accessible from the M25 and commutable to Gatwick Airport.

We offer different types of accommodation and have the ability to create housing on a single level. This is especially suited for old and infirm cats. Any medication requirements can be complied with. Housing is available to accommodate two or three cats from the same household, as well as single occupancy units.

You can travel with 100% peace of mind, knowing that your cat will be looked after and cared for as though it was one of our family. All housing has individual heated beds for the colder months and removable shutters for the warmer weather, allowing your cat to enjoy the beautiful views!

We look forward to welcoming you and your cat to Top Cat soon.


Our ethos is very simple - when your cat or cats stay at Top Cat, they become one of our family. We will do whatever we can to make their stay with us as relaxing for them, as your holiday is for you. Their stay will start with a welcome treat of tuna and every day ends with Dreamies. Our accommodation is large enough for you to bring all their favourite items - their bed, scratching post, toys - whatever you would like. When it comes to feeding, we are happy for you to bring their existing food or we can tempt their palette with any of our own food - again the choice is yours. Our interest firmly lies on what is best for the cats.

Our prices are all inclusive of heating mats in the Winter months and fans in the Summer. We do not charge extra for administering most medication. The exception is insulin, for which there is a small additional daily charge.

In the interests of everyone's safety, we are only hosting one family at a time in our reception area. You will receive a text message 48hours before you are scheduled to drop off or collect your cat(s). This will have an allocated time for you. We do understand that sometimes, your clever cat may have seen the cat box and made a bolt for the door - so of course we will do our best to accommodate any such escapees!

  • All cats must have an up to date vaccination record i.e. vaccinated within the preceding 12 months and not expire during the stay
  • Any cat over 6months must be spayed or neutered
  • We must be advised of any medical conditions including allergies
  • Please advise details of flea and worm treatment including brand and date last administered
If you would like to collect your cat(s) early then the full period will be charged. 
When your cat(s) stay with us, you give us your permission to:
  • Contact your vet if we feel it is necessary 
  • Separate cats from a multi household sharing a pen that show continuous aggression or other behavioural signs to one another
  • Take your cat(s) to our local vet should we deem it necessary and allow any examinations and investigations to be performed that the vet requires
  • Allow us to administer any treatment the vet advises
  • Place the cat(s) in an isolation pen if required
  • Give consent for euthanasia should this be recommended on human grounds, should this be recommended by the vetinary surgeon caring for your cat 
  • Confirm that you will pay for any vetinary treatment required 
  • Administer flea treatment if required and fumigate accommodation if necessary.  The cost for this will be added to your bill

As a treat to start their holiday with Top Cat, we will feed tuna.  Every night, they will have Dreamies before bedtime.

We provide Felix wet and Go Cat or Iams dry and feed wet food twice daily and dry food to 'graze' on.

Should your cat require any other food, for either medical or preference reasons, then we will of course feed them the required diet.

Please advise of any allergies
