About Us - Mission Statement
The Mews is a small family run Boarding
Cattery set in a very pretty part of rural
We are surrounded by an area of conservation
woodland giving a tranquil environment for
the cats who can happily watch the abundant
birdlife who come to visit the water feature
in the cattery gardens.
Our Cattery is by intention small and we
intend to keep it that way.
This ensures that the cats all received
individual attention at all times and are
never left lonely.
Derek and I have been owned by cats all
of our lives and currently have 8 cats sharing
our home with us.
Why so many?
Well we foster for Cats Protection and occasionally
one of our foster cats ends up staying for
one reason or another.
Secondly I work part time at a veterinary
centre where again a waif or stray needs
some TLC and ends up staying but the real
truth is we love cats and find them fascinating
, enigmatic and loving creatures.
For these reasons we have a vast wealth
of experience and knowledge to draw upon
when caring for our feline guests.
This should ensure that you, the owner,
can have a worry free holiday secure in
the knowledge that your cat will be as spoilt
by us as he/she is at home.
However, if you are still concerned about
leaving him/her in our care you can always
check via our webcams and see that all is
We are proud of the fact that we were accepted
as a Feline
Advisory Bureau Listed Cattery in our
first month of opening as the criteria are
You can see our FAB certficate here
We know, however, that our standards are
high and that we will never accept second
best in any area of our Cattery; be it cleaning,
the food or even the litter we use, everything
is of the highest quality and this shows
in the happy contended cats who holiday
We have very close links with our veterinary
centre who are on call 24 hours a day.
Consequently, if we have any concerns about
the health of a cat we seek medical advice
We are also trained in giving injections
for diabetic cats and in the correct administration
Please feel free to come and visit at any
time during our opening hours. No appointment
is necessary. You may even like to sample
some of our homemade foods!
Look forward to meeting you
