We are a Specialist boarding cattery,

Offering superior facilities to ensure that your beloved cat is comfortable and enjoying all the creature comforts, just like home. The feedback from visitors coming to our facility for the very first time is overwhelmingly positive. Maybe this is because our premises are meticulously clean and comfortable. I can't even smell cats in here is a sentence we hear uttered with surprise on many occasions. Well, we are proud of the high hygiene standards that we maintain and we take it as a great compliment that people "cannot smell cats". Our cleaning schedules are strictly adhered to ensuring that standards are always maintained. We want even the most fussy cat owner to be struck by our high standards. We call our "pens" by the name "suites" because it conjures up pictures of a hotel and as far as your pet is concerned staying at Northern Districts Cattery is akin to going on holiday to a 5 star hotel. When a pet first arrives at a cattery it is probably a little disorientated. How reassuring then for your beloved pet to encounter so many of the comforts and familiar sights of home. Our cat suites have, in close proximity, 4 television sets and 3 fish tanks. The cattery is fully air-conditioned during summer and we have a combustion heater running 24/7 in winter. We also have beautiful nature sounds that are piped through the entire building  all day long....
