The Cat Hotel

A veterinary led luxury cattery in Norfolk

Welcome to The Cat Hotel Cattery Norwich

The Cat Hotel is a fully licensed boarding cattery near Norwich for healthy cats to stay whenever their owners need a hand, and is located at the Taverham Vets Longwater Lane surgery. As the Cat Hotel is run by caring and experienced professionals, we give you peace of mind that your cat will be left in the very best of hands when you go away.

Prior to their stay with us we will check your cats' vaccination status ensuring it is up to date.  On arrival your cat will be health checked for parasites and signs of infectious disease by a member of the cattery team before admission to the Cat Hotel.  Please advise us in advance if they have complex medical needs and we will endeavour to make this complimentary check-in appointment with a Veterinary Nurse or Veterinary Surgeon instead.  You will also be asked about your cats' likes and dislikes and usual routine and are welcome to help settle them in to their temporary home.

In Safe Hands

All cats are checked by veterinary staff daily and at least twice more. Qualified veterinary staff live in a flat on site a matter of metres away from the Cat Hotel and routinely checks cats in the evening. In the unlikely event of any serious problems arising then the duty vet will always be on hand 24/7. If need be, unwell cats can be transferred to be hospitalised at our main centre at Taverham.
If your cat requires special medication or regular treatment for any condition whilst staying with us, our highly trained veterinary staff can ensure everything is done correctly. Who better to administer medication than a trained veterinary professional?

Our Facilities

We have 9 spacious cat enclosures on the first floor of the Longwater Lane surgery in Costessey. The area is light and airy with the added advantage of air conditioning. This means that no matter the weather, your cat will be cozy and warm in winter and cool in summer. The cat enclosures were designed by a vet at the practice with his cat in mind, and then built to our bespoke specification by a specialist company.

Each enclosure is made of hygienic and impervious uPVC and ‘Altro’ medical grade flooring. There is an ample exercise area and raised sleeping platform. Enclosures also have raised level walkways with ramps connecting to the to the floor level.

The 3D layout ensures your cat has a stimulating environment and that they have many options to chose from when deciding on where to spend some time during their stay. Each enclosure is separated from its neighbour by full height ‘sneeze barriers’.
