First Class Care


  • Our passion is to provide 24/7 personal quality service to our VICs – Very Important Cats (as we prefer to call them!)

  • A daily routine, background music, love and cuddles all help our guests feel relaxed and comfortable whilst with us

  • We can take care of special diets and any medication or treatment that your cat may require at no extra cost

  • We feed premium brand cat biscuits (Royal Canin and Hills Science Plan) as well as premium brand wet foods such as Sheba, Felix, Gourmet Perle and Applaws


 We understand;


  • Vicki, Ian and Ali care for all our feline guests themselves, so they quickly get to know us and feel comfortable with us around. 

  • To have to leave your cat in a cattery can be worrying and a little distressing at times for owners, but please rest assured that Vicki, Ian, Ali and the team take pride in the quality of the service, care and attention we provide, ensuring your cats welfare is our number one concern.

  • All cats are unique and require looking after in different ways - we aim to offer the next best alternative to home.

Vicki's hubby, Ian, is happy being our human Cat Tree....!  When he's not helping care for our furry friends you will no doubt find him in the workshop fixing broken climbers or mowing the lawns...we have a lot of grass!


Ali joined our team in 2016 and is now our Cattery Manager.  She is truly cat crazy having 2 of her own, Millie-Mae and Yogi!  She is amazing at caring for our feline guests and always loves a challenge when it comes to grooming them too!

Sue started Clearwood Boarding Cattery in August 2010, alongside husband Andy.  Over the years, she has transformed it into an outstanding 5 Star Rated Cattery with an excellent reputation and loyal customer base.  After 10 years, Sue is now enjoying a well earnt retirement, although you may still see her about - she can't resist cat cuddling our guests and having a good natter with our customers!

Our cat crazy customers who are now our part-time helpers, Jen and Lisa are both invaluable to us!  We can give all our guests lots of extra time and attention with so many people to look after your furry felines!
