Why Cats Love Furballs Cattery

Furballs is a local cattery is located in Hampshire and easily reached from Wickham, Fareham, Portsmouth, Petersfield, Bishops Waltham and Southampton.

Sarah, the Furballs Cattery Manager has over 27 years experience of cats and cat welfare management. Also, during this time she has worked alongside and for a number of the leading Animal Welfare Organisations, including Cats Protection and the RSPCA.

Given that over the years she has cared for in excess of 10,000 cats, you can rest assured your cat(s) will be professionally cared for.

Space, Space then even more Space! 

The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018 lays down conditions on the size and standard of the accommodation given to the cat(s).

According to these conditions the minimum space required:

  • by a single cat is 27ft². (9ft² sleeping + 18ft² exercise)
  • for up to two cats sharing is 36ft² (12ft² sleeping + 24ft² exercise)
  • for up to four cats sharing is 48ft² (18ft² sleeping + 30ft² exercise)

This is the space normally given in standard catteries that adopt the side by side pen arrangement.

At Furballs Cattery we think differently and understand that these space conditions are totally inadequate. How would you like to go on holiday and spend your time all day every day in an area that is only 7ft long by 4 ft wide? Does your cat live in that small amount of space at home?

ALL our rooms EXCEED these conditions. Below are the sizes of all 15 units here at Furballs
