About Our cattery

The Cottage Cattery is a purpose built 5* luxury cattery just outside Newtownards within easy reach of Newtownards, Bangor, Comber, Holywood & Belfast although we have customers that continue to return from much further afield.

Each cat that visits is an individual & is treated as an individual. Kittens & younger cats often want to play & need extra stimulation whilst older cats like to sleep a lot but we still ensure that their every need is attended to. We monitor the cats regularly & thoroughly, ensuring they are eating & toileting. This means we can pick quickly pick up signs if anything is wrong.

We have many returning customers & we get to know our owners & their cats extremely well.

Make sure your cat becomes a member of our ever extending family.

Cattery accommodation

We have single, double or family purpose built chalets available each with their own heated sleeping area, large secure spacious play area & Lounging shelf.

It must be stressed that only cats from the same family can share.

Each chalet also has a scratching post & you are welcome to bring any other toys you wish. We supply beds & bedding but again you are welcome to bring something familiar.

They each have views over our landscaped gardens or neighboring countryside offering plenty of mental & visual stimulation & entertainment. There is plenty of natural light & an outdoor feel but not in any way exposed to the elements making it suitable for both indoor & outdoor cats.

No. Under the rules of our Licence we are not allowed to let the cats out. We also cannot let them into the garden for obvious reasons !
Our gardens have been designed with leafy grassy plants so plenty for the cats to watch as well as the birds! We find that even cats that spend so much time outdoors settle very quickly as there is lots to observe.

Some families who have two cats prefer to pay for a unit for each cat. We can arrange for them to board beside or near to each other & share for part of the day so that the cats can spend time together but also have the option of having a bit more space when they need to. You can choose exactly what you would like us to do.

Yes. If we have a double chalet available you can upgrade but you will be charged the rate of 2 cats sharing
