Welcome everyone to 'Chalet Cats Boarding Cattery', Wakefield's newest and only Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB) listed cattery in Wakefield itself. May I take this opportunity to show you a few photographs of our cattery and some of our residents, past and present. Chalet Cats is a family operated small business and along with myself Marie, works two very loyal ladies, one of which is my mother, Val and the second lady, Diane. At this time we have twenty eight working chalet's and two isolation units. Our working units consist of six 'family' units (holds up to 4 cats) and twenty two 'standard' (up to 2 cats).
These Are the isolation units... the reason we have these is because if whilst a cat is staying with us falls ill. We would remove them from the main body of the cattery and 'isolate' them for the well being of themselves and the other residents around them. We originally built fifteen chalet's and have now extended to twenty eight (thirty including these two isolation units). We were cautious at first, but the demand was great, so we extended.
After each cat has stayed with us, the chalet, beds / bedding, shelves.. well everything actually has to be scrubbed and disinfected from top to bottom. What you see here is the our workstation where the 'bleaching' and 'disinfecting' takes place. This has its own supply of hot and cold running water. Everything is scrubbed, allowed to dry naturally and then disinfected.
Whenever a cat or cats come to stay with us you can be rest assured that they will be treated with as much love and affection as if they were at home.
Below are a few comments that happy customers have left on the International Cat Care (ICC) website about their cat(s) stay whilst they were with us...
"Really nice people, chloe loves it there! Highly recommended"
"So glad I chose Chalet Cats for my little Mia. It was her first time in a cattery but she was very well looked after and totally spoilt. Thanks Marie....she will definitely be coming to you again x"
"Thanks for taking such good care of my two little men, max and beau! The boys are happy and back at home like they've never been away!"
"Socrates will defiantly be going on holiday to here again :D very happy. Will recommend to everyone who asks for a cattery. Thank you very much :) xxx Rob and Kasi."
"I couldn't think of a better place to send my cats they are fantastic it's like a holiday for them !"
"Can not thank Chalet Cats enough! I was really worried about leaving my cats behind...but I needn't have worried! They had had a great time and I had to prise them away!!.. Was also a lovely and comforting touch to see their pic on Facebook! Thank you once again, I'll definitely trust you with my fur babies again x"
"Chalet Cats do an absolutely fantastic job! After reluctantly leaving my cat for the first time to go abroad and missing him every day, it was lovely to see that he was so well looked after and clearly wasn't phased about being away from home. If anything, I don't think he even wanted to come home! Thanks again to Marie, Ronnie and the team for providing such a cracking service."
"This cattery is like a breath of fresh air! I was extremely impressed with EVERYTHING. The care of my cat was 1st class and I certainly will be using them again!"
"I was really pleased to see that both my cats were really happy and chilled - It is a credit to this cattery, possibly the best one I have ever used.."
"Wouldn't put our cats anywhere else now. There are a number of catteries closer, but we drive past them to go to Chalet Cats. We've even changed our holiday when they are full."
"We are grateful for the flexibility and caring attitude. The 'customer service' is second to none."
"Delightful rural setting with full 5 star hotel for all cats - with care and attention to each cat to match"
"A caring and very well run establishment"
