Welcome to the Cattery
We are the only uPVC Cattery in Nottingham making demand very high, with a lot of rescues and RSPCA now turning to uPVC, it's now a must for the future to ensure high hygienic accommodation, reducing the risks of infection and stress in cats.
When the Cattery pens are disinfected it strips away the scent of any other guests so when the new visitors arrives they are able to go around the pen rubbing their scent onto the pen environment, this gives a cat assurances and gives them their own territory making them feel happy and without the need to hide instantly it makes them feel able to put their paws up and relax.
The Purrfect accommodation for your cat
Each pen has its own radiator giving them the exact same heating as in their home. All pens have their own room thermostat so if their pen temperature drops, the boiler will still stay on until the pen reaches its set temperature. Gas central heating is perfect in the Cattery as it does not dry the air in the pens like electric heating and does not limit to only heating a certain area. Most catteries use heat lamps, pads or electric tubes, these only provide heat in one particular part of the pen and cause condensation, which then can result into respiratory problems in cats.
The Cattery pens have been tested in extremes of 2011 winter of -15 degrees showing an indoor pen temperature of 25-30 degrees making this Cattery very popular in winter and summer.
The Cattery was originally licensed in 2010 for 12 pens but due to such high demand and popularity, Broxtowe Borough Council and the neighbours fully supported an extension of 18 pens, incorporating 2 family pens with new isolation unit and refurbishment to the office with cross over day indoor holding pens.
The difference between a wooden Cattery to uPVC is extensive mainly cleanliness and hygiene a cat can vacate a pen and another can be happily boarded and settled in within 10 minutes the drying time is rapid allowing great flexibility and a bigger base of customers.
Pens designed for the comfort of your cat
All the pens can accommodate up to three cats we also have two family pens, which can hold up to six cats per family. The cat’s eye view looks out onto the garden day and night, in summer all runs are sunny with the indoor area cooler for retreating after a sunbath. All floors are tiled for hygienic reasons with glass sneeze barriers around making sure no cross infections can be made.
Whilst your cat is boarded they have no vision of any other neighbouring guests allowing less stress and giving them free time to sit and relax looking out onto the garden and water feature and of course the many array of local birds, squirrels and resident cats.
Your cat is treated as part of the family
As a family run Cattery we continue to carry out daily family life from hanging out washing and cutting the lawn, making your cats whole experience not one of being stuck down a field but of being part of our extended family whilst staying with us. Cats love company and cuddles and something interesting to look at and Elizabeth & Nick believe that's what makes cats happy, not panoramic views.
Depression stress and cystitis is very common in cats who have not been happy in a Cattery, here at Black & White, we have changed people's lives, helping people to enjoy going on holiday again, having been reassured that their cat will not be ill or depressed when they go home.
