Relax and enjoy
  • Highland Cats provides the best of everything for that perfect, relaxed, comfortable holiday:

    * Meals

    Premium food (Proplan kibble/Sheba foil tray in the morning and Science Plan/ Felix Doubly Delicious in the afternoon) is served fresh, in clean bowls, twice a day with fresh water (changed every day) in special non spill bowls. We are delighted to serve own food if preferred. A small part of the day’s kibble is served in a food maze to encourage our guests to enjoy some time “hunting”.

    * Accommodation

    Beds (and there is at least one more bed than there is guest, in each suite!) are cosy and comfy with lots of fresh blankets provided (or bring from home) for a blissful nap. All apartments are en-suite with premium clumping litter (cleaned four times a day) in giant litter trays (one per cat). The cattery is kept spotlessly clean.

    * Facilities

    Each suite has a distinctive feel, designed to provide plenty of different areas to explore or to rest in.  For interest, beyond what is happening outside the window, there is a selection of balls (or bring favourites), a chase toy, a catnip toy (from day 3),  scratching facilities, climbing/ exploring options, a Mini Bar and a Massage Brush.

    * Special Care

    Guests are visited at least 8 times a day so there is plenty of interaction. One of these visits includes our famous “PurrDate” – speed dating for cats – three minutes of uninterrupted one to one care, attention and cuddles (if accepted) or just a chat with us, if preferred. In week one Purrdates take place in the morning, in week two an extra Purrdate is added at lunchtime, in week 3 the same plus another one at teatime and in Week 4 and beyond there is one 4 times a day!.

    * Individual touches

    We like to exceed expectation and offer so much more including:

    • The opportunity to book additional sessions of interaction through our Enrich & Enjoy Sessions. These sessions provide more opportunity to play and get an extra massage or an extra fuss… whatever takes our guest’s fancy. (Small additional charge applies).
    • Booking services, including confirmations of arrangements by mail and text, and feedback on how guests have enjoyed their stay.
    • Out of Hour flexibility for arrival/ departures if required or collections/ delivery if needed

  • Activity Club

    Some cats just love attention, others just a little and some… not a lot. So one approach to cattery routine does not suit all cats, all of the time. At Highland Cats we offer the chance to book some extra activity  time for our guests. The 15 minute club session is often broken in to two 7.5 minute sessions across the day with at least one at lunchtime and we offer extra play time,  massage grooming, chat and fuss  etc…..just whatever our guest prefers. The Activity Club session increases to 10 minutes in week 2 as we combine it with the lunchtime Purrdate.

    There is a small additional charge and a limited number of these sessions available each day, so please book well in advance. Half sessions can be booked. The cost is per suite, not per cat. If our guest is not in the mood for a session it can be rescheduled or cancelled with no charge.
