Under new Management from April 2021
Barn Owls boarding Cattery is situated in a beautiful rural destination in Manston Kent. The cattery is set in a 1.5 acre privately owned residence with an18th century converted barn surrounded by trees, fields, and neighboring alpaca's offering an idyllic peaceful, and relaxed environment for all our boarding cats. Our cattery is one of the largest in the South East of England, it currently houses 40 suites and is licensed by Thanet District Council. Barn Owls is a purpose-brick built boarding cattery constructed in 2008 under veterinary supervision ensuring it's design and layout offer a safe and secure environment.
Barn Owls is well established, operating since 2008, and recently taken over in April 2021 by animal lovers Paul,Jo, and their children Ben, Fleur & Louie, 'William' the cat, and pugs 'Bluey' and 'Bear'. We are a loving and friendly family and welcome you and your cats to come and visit us. We are proud to take over the baton of previous owners Mike and Amanda and wish them the best of luck with their well-earned retirement. Our aim is to continue where they left off and look at ways to develop and enrich Barn Owls with new ideas to enhance and improve the experience for all your wonderful cats.
We aim to create a calm and relaxed environment where our cats feel safe and at ease to be themselves, within the safety of their own space. We take time to give them as much or as little attention they crave through play, cuddles and grooming at their pace during their stay.
Each suite is spacious giving every cat plenty of room to exercise and play. Each suite is large enough to cater for up to 3 cats from the same household. Each suite has a separate private enclosed area for them to escape to and relax. All suites come with bedding, heating, and a variety of toys to keep them occupied.
All suites are kept locked and separated from neighboring cats with a corridor link for staff access which has two locked entry doors ensuring all cats are contained safely.
