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
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.
As well as running the cattery alongside husband Ian and Cattery Manager Ali, Vicki is also a busy mum to Josh and Finley. Vicki seen here with the very cuddly GiGi!
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 3 of her own, Phoebe, 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!
Jen has been with us since 2015 and prior to that she was a regular customer. Jen owns Alfie who is a very fluffy tabby and still enjoys his holidays with us. Jen loves spending time with her granddaughters and getting away to her caravan when she's not caring for our feline guests!
Lisa joined our team in 2018 and prior to that, she was a regular customer bringing her little diva Roxy to us! Lisa also owns 2 dogs and a rabbit called Ted and runs her own pet sitting service called Bespoke Tabby Chic. Lisa is also a busy mum to 4 older children, how she fits it all in we still don't know!
Amy joined us during Lockdown as a volunteer. She quickly became a valuable member of the team and is now a Cattery Assistant who is with us on Thursdays, most weekends and during the school holidays! She has 3 cats called Rosie, Jim and Bob, a dog called Odi and is currently studying Animal Management Level 3 at Lackham College.
Willow joined the team in August 2021 and she adores her 2 cats, Bellatrix and Miss Pawkins, as well as her dog Ember. Willow is currently studying A-Levels in Art, Graphics, Maths and English Literature at Frome College and is a part-time Cattery Assistant on Saturdays and during school holidays.
Rowan joined our team in early 2022 and her daughter, Willow, works here too! Rowan says she used to hear Willow talking about all the lovely cats we have stay here and she knew it was a special place to work so when we advertised for another Cattery Assistant she jumped at the chance! Rowan has a dog and 2 cats and says she has learnt so much more about our feline friends since working at the cattery.
