Product- and service offerings:

We are situated on the outskirts of Carmarthen not far from the small village of Llanybri and the beautiful village of Llansteffan. I have always loved animals and always worked with them being a veterinary nurse for 30 years. Cats and horses are my passion. Between the ages of 13 and 16 I helped out in school holidays in a cattery just outside of Cardiff, from this experience I knew then my dream would be to own my own cattery.

About Us

We moved to Carmarthen 12 years ago onto a smallholding where I hoped my dream would come true, after a lot of hard work and planning visiting numerous catteries up and down the country making a note of all the good & bad points with the support of my mum who has 70+ years experience in cat care also my husband and my daughter who is also a qualified veterinary nurse, we are all lovers of animals and want to give your much loved feline companion the love and care they deserve and your piece of mind that their every need is catered for whilst you have your much deserved break.

Our Facilities

A Purpose built building that is light and airy it will be cool in the summer and warm in the winter with a heated bedroom, the pens have been constructed to the latest health & hygiene regulations as set by the Welsh Assembly Government coming into force this year. We have feliway diffusers to create a calm atmosphere with soothing music in the background. The cattery is situated on our doorstep, which means there is somebody in attendance 24 hours a day. We have the backing of Burns veterinary food so that we can cater for any food requirements be it for sensitive tummies or itchy skin. We are also going to offer a pick up and return service for a small fee, when you book your companion in you will be asked about past and present medical history also the name and number of your vet but we will be working closely with Towy Vets in Carmarthen. Your cat must have an up to date vaccination certificate and we will also want to know about your cats flea and worming regime.
