Christchurch Cattery

10 The Grove, Christchurch BH23 2HA, UK – 01202 468595

We love our cats and so we're very keen that we find a good Cattery for them. When we dropped them off with Dawn we were struck by how well organised everything was and how relaxed all the inmates were. On our return, both boys were very relaxed and had clearly been looked after very well in our absence. Will definitely use them again and would urge others to do the same.

They were so gentle with the animals. My only gripe is having to wait with a scared cat surrounded by barking dogs, a separate area would be nice. Since my last review I have given an extra star for their efforts in being the best they can in such a difficult world. Their high standard of animal care cannot be faulted, they offered to come out to my car to tell me the vet is ready to see me thus minimising the stress on my pet. It is wonderful when people understand that my pet is part of my family, part of my life, just as much as the humans I live with. Thank you natterjacks for making my animals welfare a priority. And to the person who said vets are greedy, try going to the dentist and experience real greed.

I am so happy I found Andy and his incredible team. Not only do they look after my own 5 cats but I use them for my Boarding Cattery as well. It is wonderful to have our very own super vet on our doorstep.

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
