Nutley Farm Cats

45 Barming Rd, Wateringbury, Maidstone ME18 5BD, UK – 01622 812832

Our two cats are frenemies so at times need some space from one another, this was a big worry for me. The cattery was well in tune with this and responded accordingly, given them each their own space when able to. The cattery was clean and very secure, perfect for keeping in my two little escape artists. They were also able to keep us informed throughout the cats two weeks stay. Arrival and departure went very smoothly. The cattery went above and beyond when we couldn't make it in time for their opening hours, which was achieved through contact with the cattery. Back at home, they settled within the hour and is even friendlier towards each other. Will not go anywhere else.

Was very nervous about leaving my ginger kitty Rodney for the first time, but needn't have worried. When I collected both Rodney and my shy black cat Puddle, yesterday after a week's stay with Julia and Wayne, they were both in great shape! Julia definitely understands cats' needs and is lovely with them. Young Rodders was confident and content and had grown and although my shy girl had hidden as expected most of the time she was in the cattery, she hadn't lost weight and settled back at home straightaway with no sulks. Am happy to recommend this cattery to other cat owners.

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
