Claremont Cattery is a family-run, fully-licensed business located in South-West London. Passed down through three generations, we pride ourselves on high standards, excellent feedback and repeat business but above all on providing a caring, happy stay for your pet.
My friends know me as ‘Catwoman’ due to the fact that I can usually be found on the school run in my wellies, covered in cat hair. This sums up my devotion to all things feline – cats have always been in my life, so when I married into a family with a cattery business it felt like serendipity. My husband Simon and I took over the family business in 2015 and moved to live on site with our three children. Simon is busy coaching England Rugby so I run the business supported by our two crazy, adorable Burmese cats Cookie and Biscuit. As a cat owner myself I understand that your cat is more than just a pet – it’s a member of the family. My aim is to give you confidence that while you jet off to relax, have fun and be pampered, your cats are also having a wonderful time with us. I have years of hands on experience and I also have a certificate in Feline First Aid.
I’ve worked at Claremont Cattery for eleven years so you can tell that I love my job. I’m responsible for overseeing the operational side of the cattery – checking in new ‘guests’, ensuring that they are fed, watered, clean and happy. And receiving plenty of cuddles. My Ofqual Regulated Level 3 Diploma in Feline Care, Welfare and Behaviour means I have a deep understanding of what cats need from the practical to the playful. Clare will tell you that I also have a photographic memory for all things feline – she likes testing me on which cats we have in, what they eat, their medical history and idiosyncrasies. And just in case I need to underline my commitment further, we took in a rescue cat called Yogi – I fell in love, adopted him and we are living happily ever after.
