The owners are passionate about cats and cat care. Our little one came out so chilled. Will definitely use this cattery again. But book well in advance

We booked our young British Blue cat in for a 17 day stay at Top Cat Boarding and have NO regrets. This was her first stay and so I was nervous leaving her but the reassurance I got at drop off and updates while away put my mind at rest. At pick up I was met with a happy, well looked after cat and have already booked her in for her next stay. Thank you for taking such good care of Luna 💕

Nice staff and cat came back full of energy and happy

We recently used this fabulous cattery to board our rescue cats while relocating to the UK. Our cats boarded for just over two weeks and clearly enjoyed their stay. We enjoyed photos and videos throughout and were reunited with very content and calm cats who had been extremely well cared for in the most compassionate manner. Paula is truly a wonderful lady who loves animals and knows very well how to care for each cat according to their personality, ensuring they are as content as possible. This is a reflection of the gift Paula has with cats, especially those who are timid or anxious. I highly recommend Top Cat Boarding Cattery and Paula's excellent care. - Sharmaine

Pens are a good size, can't see other cats.  Staff were great, putting my mind at rest on the phone. Making sure my cat was eating well and looked after. Healthy cat on my return, very happy, will definitely use again.

Just picked up a very content happy cat from her week in this lovely place. We've enjoyed our holiday so much more knowing she was being well looked after.

Our young British Shorthair, Bluebell, really enjoyed her two recent stays. She said that she really liked the rural location and the efficiency of the Top Cat Cattery, and she was full of energy on her return.

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.

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 book 15 minute slots to ensure plenty of time. We do understand that sometimes, your clever cat may have seen the cat box (or your suitcases!) 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

For bookings that are made within 14 days of the start date, we will require full payment.

We're sorry that we have had to bring in these changes, but they are as a direct result of being let down by so may customers at the last minute.
