Our cattery is a purpose built indoor cattery opened in 2017. Many of the rooms have windows giving views along one of the beautiful Stroud Valleys, and the countryside beyond.
We have a mix of full height and penthouse style rooms, all exceeding the latest sizing regulations, set out by the 'CIEH Model Licence Conditions and Guidance for Cat Boarding Establishments 2013' updated April 2022.
All rooms have individually controlled under floor heating.
While all of our luxury rooms are large enough for 2, we also have some larger ones for up to 4 cats. When sharing they must all be from the same household.
We provide comfortable bedding, but all customers are welcome to bring their own bedding, toys and treats.
Security is a top priority at The Scratching Post, with 24 hour CCTV covering the building. As well as an up to date alarm system.
We supply many wet and dry branded foods, and will feed the one you and your cat prefer.
You are also welcome to supply your own.
We do not stock Prescription Diets.
Fresh water is available at all times.
Our cattery building has been purpose built to very high specifications. We have used the latest construction materials enabling easy cleaning as well as warmth and comfort for the cats.
While building our rooms we have put a lot of thought into the materials used. It has been proven that cats find bright primary colours stressfull and prefer muted colours. For this reason for all of our panelling we have chosen a dusky jade colour to help create a relaxing atmosphere. The panelling is one of the latest products available being anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, strong and scratch proof.
We have both penthouse design, with a raised sleeping area, as well as full height rooms. We also have 2 family rooms, spacious enough for up to 4 cats. All of the sleeping areas are heated with undertile heating and are separated from the run areas with UPVC doors, fitted with cat flaps.
We have used glass and mesh where possible to maintain light and airy conditions, while always considering that some cats prefer not to be sociable, so also providing areas to hide.
