Catteries in London

You are live in the bustling city of London but need to go away for a short business trip or have planned a holiday. But what will you do with your cat? One option to consider is using a cattery.

Choosing a London based cattery

Cats are extremely popular amongst the London population. In fact, London is the only place in the UK where cats are more popular than dogs. In response to this, a wide variety of establishments specifically geared to accommodating cats while their owners are away are available within the city. Indeed, finding a cattery near you in London is very easy.

The principle of a cattery is simple: you drop off your cat before you leave and pick it back up once you have returned. Still, there are various things to consider before booking a cattery.

Before selecting a cattery in London, it is always recommended to research the facility and make sure that it is up to the latest standards. Take into consideration that the cattery has to follow laws and regulations and should have a security policy in place. Pay a visit to the premises and take a look at the rooms your cat will be eating and sleeping in. Find out how many other pets will be staying in, what additional services your cat requires (think of medication, cat-friendly furniture or maybe even grooming services)

The costs

Of course, also the costs of the cattery plays a major role in your decision. Due to the large variety of establishments and their level of luxury and additional services, it’s hard to say how much a stay in a cattery in London will generally cost. Basic catteries, offering basic services and no extra luxuries can cost just about as much as any other pet sitting service, between 15 and 20 pounds.

A luxury cat hotel in London, on the other hand can charge prices of over £100 per day. In return, your cat will receive more personalised care, better facilities and often various additional services such as an on site vet . Be careful though, not every cattery that calls itself a cat hotel is more luxurious. As with a normal cattery, research before hand and visiting the premises is essential before you make your choice.
