Cattery Manufacturers uPVC Cattery Manufacturer: Cattery Construction: How Pedigree Pens started:

In 1992 we were asked to manufacture a PVCu cat pen for a lady involved in cat rescue.

She had become annoyed & frustrated with constantly treating her timber rescue pens, whilst watching it disintegrating in varying atmospheric conditions.

Another major concern was not being able to tell whether it was actually clean (deterioration of the framework & deep cat scratches provided dirt traps & potential breeding grounds for ringworm & other nasties). A year later, another rescue centre made the same request, but on a much larger scale.

These two incidents made the company realise the enormous benefits of using PVCu in animal housing and cattery manufacturers Pedigree Pens were formed.

It is vital that before you place an order or part with your money that you carry out a financial credit check on the people / business you are preparing to do business with. After all it is very important that you know the company is financially sound before you part with any of your money. Read our in depth article on financing your cattery here.

Pedigree Pens formed in 1996:

The directors decided to concentrate their efforts. As a result, Pedigree Pens was formed & now exists solely for animal housing manufacture and cattery construction.

CIEH guidelines

We also sponsored the CIEH (Chartered Institute of Environmental Health) Model Licence Committee in their quest to specify minimum standards for boarding cattery construction. This is the standard your local authority should be measuring your cattery against.

Our materials are, of course, completely compliant with these guidelines, which relate to animal welfare standards, hygiene & construction materials.

As cattery manufacturers we also do our best to make our customers & website visitors aware of the problems with using timber pens.

Cattery Startups

Since 1992 we have helped many people start their dream business and open a cattery. Today we have over 200 boarding catteries nationwide that have a Pedigree Pen installed. In 2015 we launched a directory of Pedigree Pen catteries which is available to the public to search for a genuine Pedigree Pen.

We have also created a guide to help people start a cattery business. The guide takes you step-by-step through the process of starting a cattery from scratch(!) and is updated periodically with new information.
