Setting up a Cattery

By | A Fresh Approach, Cattery Buildings, cattery design, Choosing a Boarding Cattery, CIEH | No Comments

Setting up a Cattery: In today’s discerning market we need to provide high quality, hygienic, low maintenance facilities.

This is not only because of customer demands, but also to comply with the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health Model Licence Regulations (see our CIEH page) and the proposed Animal Welfare Bill.

To this end, we recommend that our boarding catteries are installed as small and exclusive developments (ideally 10 to 35 double size pens) and are focused towards the more discerning cat ownerwho is prepared to pay a premium for quality services.

As a guide, two of our recent installations have opened at £10 and £16 per cat, per day

This strategy is important when setting up a cattery in order to market and establish your business correctly.

Serious direct competition is unlikely to exist, although there is certain to be a boarding cattery within your local area which is likely to be of a much lower standard.

CIEH
(Chartered Institute of Environmental Health)

Pedigree Pens (FirmFix) were one of the original sponsors of the CIEH Model Licence Committee.

This committee decided that all boarding accommodation must be constructed to meet minimum standards.
They produced guidelines which every UK local authority & their local boarding establishments should adhere to.
You can download a copy of the guidelines online.

Our materials – Safety & Hygiene :


Consequently, all our materials are impervious, thus minimising the risk of the spread of feline diseases.

Materials used include:

  • PVCu framework
  • insulated high gloss panelling
  • safety glass
  • multi-wall heat reflective polycarbonate roofing
  • rigid 1″ square galvanised steel mesh for extra strength & security

The use of these materials eliminates the need for regular treatment. The pens cannot rot, are easy to wipe clean & are very secure. View our Materials Comparison page for further information.

Perhaps the most important feature of PVCu is that it is self-extinguishing should it be exposed to fire.
