New Cattery Website Launched

In June 2008 we were delighted to launch our brand new boarding cattery and cat hotel website www.westlodgecattery.co.uk ~ and it's absolutely packed with photos of our cattery and guests!

Our website was designed by Kay Key who not only created BoardingCatteries.org and CatteryDesign.com, but also publishes the 'bibles' on kennel and cattery design to improve animal welfare (see below).

Having worked with Kay & David (expert in cattery and kennel design) for over 2 years on our vision for the future of our boarding kennels ~ Kay was "thrilled to be able to show Westlodge Cattery's full potential to caring cat owners seeking the very best in catteries."

In August 2008 we launched our new boarding cattery website.

Kennel Design 'Bible'

In June 2008 we were featured in the book Kennel Design which is the 'bible' for inspiration for those thinking of starting a kennels or cattery, and is available from every Amazon and online bookstore and bookshop anywhere in the world.

Read article...

This book is sponsored by Dogs Trust, and is written to help future kennel and cattery owners build the best standard of accommodation, and learn about animal welfare. The author's books are used in animal welfare and kennel and cattery management courses in colleges and universities around the world.

We were chosen for the book because of our deep commitment to improving our kennels and cattery standards, our stunning location including our beautiful mature landscaped gardens, and to be an inspiration to other existing kennels and cattery operations who are looking to reach higher standards of accommodation and care.

In June 2008 the book Kennel Design featured a 6-page article on our kennels, and our plans for our new luxury cattery which is now open.

Westlodge's Cat Hotel Opens
with themed luxury cat beds

In June 2008 we were delighted to open our new luxury cat hotel/cattery and launched our new website.

We wanted to provide the most comfortable, deeply padded and luxurious bedding for our Cat Guests ~ and so we commissioned special cat themed beds from Tinkerbellspaws, who told us:

"Your cattery looks absolutely great and I would imagine as a result you have been very busy! Congratulations on the Cattery, or more appropriately Luxury Feline Hotel!!! - and also the website - it's fantastic!!"

Best Regards to one and all

We are thrilled with the new cattery, which incorporates 2 large, light and bright V.I.C Cat Suites which directly overlook our beautiful gardens, including the Koi Carp pond and our Aviary (seen in the background, as is Marc!).

Our new Cat Hotelis filled with natural daylight, panoramic views, and enough deeply padded and comfy cat bedding to appease even the most demanding of clients ~ Cat-napping in style is beautifully demonstrated by our regular guest, the scrumptious birman cat Jeremy (shown right!)

Specialist Cattery Bookings

In 2006, when we became the proud new owners of Westlodge Kennels and Cattery in Cambridge, we inherited a paper-based system of cards.

We wanted to ensure we provided a special service where every cat's needs were known, and catered for. So we introduced our bookings software system made by PetAdmin to be able to note every pet's details in full ~ detailing everything we would need to know to care for them during their stay with us.

We are delighted with our bookings software, and it has enabled us to provide a much more personal service, and one that is much more efficient. We can track everything, we can hold a waiting list, so that those customers who would like to book in a year in advance, or a few days in advance can do so easily.

Our deepest thanks to PetAdminfor providing a bookings system that allows us to take extra-special care of our Clients.

In 2006 we introduced our new PetAdmin Booking System for Clients
