My name is Andrea, I took early retirement as a Community Matron in the NHS after nearly 40 years in order to pursue my dream of opening a luxury cattery, one that I would be happy to leave my cats in. Originally from Devon, I lived in Essex for 34 years before I moved to Eastwood in December 2014.
My dream to own a cattery stems from seeing the poor facilities available when I needed to find a cattery for my two original cats Jasper and Dylan. Now sadly long passed over the rainbow.
I have seven cats now, Max; Lola, Milly, George, Missy, Harry and my recent addition Sid the Stray who I took indoors during the snow. Sophie the oldie aged 17 passed away end of July 2015. All were rescued from the RSPCA and Cats Protection. Sid just arrived in my gardern lol!
To prepare for this new venture, I have successfully undertaken various studies in all things cats! Including i-catcare.org (formerly Feline Advisory Board) endorsed Cattery Management Training. Animal Psychology and Pet first Aid Training.
Licensed by Broxtowe Borough Council, the cattery is based in Eastwood in Nottingham very close to the A610 and J26 M1 with easy access to Nottingham, Derby, East Midlands airport, The Peak District, Robin Hood Country and many other attractions such as Matlock, Buxton and Chatsworth House are all within short distances.
