Pilchard

Eternal Cattery Guard-cat

Pilchard was found in the car park about 21 years ago and lived on site ever since.  He loved to sit out in the sun when the weather was warm.  He also liked to chase dogs who invaded his territory.  Pilchard enjoyed all the attention he could get from the Staff and our clients. He passed away in November 2018. He will be remembered forever by everyone who interacted with him. RIP Pilchard.

Lucy

Cattery Guard-cat

Lucy had been staying with us for over a year while her owner was in care.  Due to her owner’s health she was unable to come out of care and the social worker asked us to rehome Lucy.  At that time we had recently lost Pilchard and we then decided to keep Lucy as our cattery cat as she was use to us and the cattery.  She now spends her days siting in reception greeting our clients.
