We have some Special Features that most others don't have:

  • Private rooms with your cats' own web page- so you can visit your cat online while you're away! Even from a hospital bed!cat-approved

  • Pussycat TV! - showing continuous 4-hour loop of films we made of mice, birds etc. The cats love it!

  • Outdoor garden rooms - several safe outdoor rooms for fresh air, squirrel and bird-watching in total peace. Not always available - we charge a little more for these all-day bird-watching rooms for your cat(s)

  • Actively vented enclosed cat litter boxes - absolutely no smell at our cat resort, for your cat or us.

  • Round-the clock entertainment at our cat resort - Peaceful bird sounds, live birds to watch and pussycat TV, games to play.

  • Comfortable, cozy and warm feel - no metal cages, stark fluorescent lighting and concrete floors here - this is luxurious!

  • Boarding for cats only - no dogs. So your pussycat can relax. Also no strays, no sick cats ever stay here.

cat2Why not board with your vet? 

Sure, your cat will definitely be safe, but the vet is where your cat goes for medical reasons - checkups, vaccinations - but not for any kind of fun holiday ....

We love our vets, they're wonderful and we need them, but who wants to stay in a metal cage in hospital for their holidays?! 

Our cat knows she's there for treatment but she's so happy to come home and party

Instead, you can go away relaxed and completely guilt-free, knowing your cat is safe and ...
... that your pussycat is absolutely loving his/her vacation here at the Catnip Cathouse !

This is our private home so visits are made via our virtual visit page, rather than coming in person for a look-see. 3 panoramic viewers and some webcams allow you to see exactly what it's like here, instantly - without even leaving your home!

** Click on this green bar now for a virtual visit **

- and you'll have a chance to see it all in person when you bring your cat for his/her vacation.

Everyone has loved it here and the cats do too, so you can be confident that you've found the right vacation home for your cats.

cat3We know how much you love your little pussycats and we do too, so they're in the very best hands. 

We're some of the most cat-friendly people. 

We're utterly reliable, always available to the cats and their owners and we do it right.


No other boarding place comes close to what we provide - and for lower cost than most others too!
