About us .......
The most important fact about us is - We are "CATS ONLY" NO KENNELS ON SITE!
Alley Cats Cattery is run and owned by myself Alison Hodgkinson, or as people like to call me Ali - Hence, when thinking of a name for the cattery Alley Cats was born!
Cheshire East Borough Council Licence Holder Number: CE/BE56/310524, also fully DBS Checked.
Having initially been brought up on a farm in the Cheshire countryside, this was where my passion for animals all began, especially cats and horses.
Now living on a smallholding, based just outside of Nantwich, Hill Cottage is where I am now based with my 17-year-old twin girls, who also share my passion for animals, not forgetting my mum who also loves to assist in the running of the cattery, and who also has Many many many years of animal experience.... don't mention that to her though!
We are a small family run business set in the grounds of 10 acres of rolling countryside and wooded area. Based on the Whitchurch road A530, a stone's throw away from Nantwich, our guests come from all surrounding areas as we are situated on one of the main routes to Wales, so clients drop off and collect as they come and go on their holidays!
Having lived on a farm from an early age has given me many years of animal experience alongside numerous qualifications these include: The running of and cattery management, along with animal behavior, feeding advice, animal rescue rehabilitation, and grooming. We also have our own Shetland ponies at home that we show successfully at county level and Pygmy goats, which seem to provide entertainment for our guests.
Our cattery comprises:11 well equipped cattery pens, which include a 7-bay unit and 4 log cabins that have their own CAT TV - We love to spoil our guests! So heating and fans are installed in all units.
Our premises has CCTV and large wooden electric gates on entry, meaning that your cats are safe and secure, as our premises can not be entered without permission.
We have now been established and licensed for a number of years by Cheshire East Borough Council, where we are proud to say we have the maximum number of stars possible at this time, for our size and are classed as extremely low risk and competent.
Our aim is to provide a comfortable, safe and relaxed environment for your cat with a home from home feel and also help you with any cat related issues you may have if we can.
Because we are a smaller cattery, we like to think our customers become our friends and their cats become like family, when in our care.
If you do have any concerns regarding a first time cattery stay, or just a general enquiry, please do not hesitate to contact us, we'll do our very best to put your mind at rest and try to help you make the right decision for your cat.
