    Chilworth Cattery is a luxury cat home in a beautiful forest setting well away from the kennels area. It is built to an exceptionally high standard. The centre is of cavity wall construction with quality brickwork exterior. It fully meets the 1996 Model Licence Conditions but goes beyond the requirements to provide for the increasingly high expectations of discerning owners. There is an emphasis on cleanliness and hygiene.

    Each cat, or family of cats, has a large self-contained sleeping compartment, which is heated in winter by individual radiant panel heaters. Each pen has a large and totally secure attached outside run with free access from the sleeping area. Galvanised steel is used for the construction of the attached runs both for strength and for security and an additional safety corridor surrounds the whole cattery. Each outside pen has full height sneeze barriers between compartments to eliminate possible transmission of infection between boarders.

    The outside pens are roofed with weld mesh and covered with a full-length roof to keep cats dry when exercising in wet weather. There is a window with a viewing shelf between each pen and run to provide light and attractive conditions and enables cats to enjoy watching the outside area.All cats are personally supervised by the owners and given individual attention. Older and convalescing cats can have heated baskets in winter in addition to the normal heating for a small extra charge. Individual diets are catered for when required.

    Inspection prior to booking is very much encouraged - we will be happy to welcome you here.
