Where is summer? :)

Lots of you are preparing for summer and booking your pets in with us so please hurry if you are considering using us as not many places left. 

At Cats Whiskers and Dogs Paws it is all about caring for your pets as though they were our own but we will never please everyone, all of the time and that's life.

You do become a little hardened when running your own business especially after in excess of 10 years as some people's expectations are unrealistic and unreasonable but the vast majority of our customers are lovely. They truly care for their pets and look for what they judge to be the best and keep us busy and this summer will be no different.

Although we do now board dogs, they are a good distance from the cattery, down a dip and facing the other way to the cattery. We go to great lengths to keep the dogs quiet too so as not to upset the cats and we don't like incessant dog barking either. In my opinion, if the dogs are well exercised and feel confident and comfortable they don't bark a lot or if they do, not for long

We do have a couple of new cat units with very long runs. Like the existing ones they have a covered outdoor run so rain or shine they can sit out, sheltered and watch the world go by, be that the horses across the fields, birds or butterflies
