Boarding for your Cats

Our American-style heated cat chalets provide luxury accommodation for your cat.

Luxury accommodation

While your cat stays with us, comfort comes as standard in our luxury, American style heated chalets that provide a warm, cosy holiday-home. If you have two or more cats they can stay together, or should you prefer they can luxuriate in their own space. Scratching posts, sun shelves, climbing logs and litter trays make sure that while staying with us your cat’s every need is catered for.


If your cat has any special medical requirement, please let us know and our trained staff will administer the appropriate medication. Our own vet is on call daily for any urgent or serious consultations.


When checking in please let staff know of any recent illnesses, lumps, bumps or any other problems. Your cat’s health is paramount to us and we can make adjustments to our service to ensure, in most cases, that any special needs are met.


We all have our preferences when it comes to food and cats can be as choosy as the most finicky people. We stock a broad range of cat food brands to maintain a balanced diet. However, if you have specific feeding instructions, inform us when checking in and we will follow them. We can provide your cat’s favourite food, even if it is not within our stock range. For this service we require up to three weeks’ notice and depending on the product there may be an additional charge.

Boarding Prices

Sun shelves, climbing logs and litter trays provide your cat with an unrivalled holiday experience.

On arrival please let staff know of any recent illnesses, lumps, bumps or any other problems.
We take the health of your cat seriously and can make alterations to our service to suit the needs of most cats.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

“Thank you for your kindness, whilst boarding our cat Suki over the Christmas period. You were wonderful from start to finish and really reassured us throughout her stay in the cattery. I’m sure she loved watching all the birds in the aviary as she watches them all the time out the window at home. We will be back for sure!

Sue Reynolds

“Ravi and Gita always have a lovely time when they stay at London and Essex Kents Farm Kennels and Catteries. Taylor and Lauren are always very helpful and make lots of fuss them both. They help me take all their bits round to the cattery and let me settle my babies in with them. I know they’re always in great hands.

Rohini Arthanayake

“To: Everyone at Kents Farm! Thank you so much for looking after Bobby and Timmy while we were moving house. You were really accommodating and having the flexibility to add days on really helped us out through a stressful few weeks. The cats came home happy and well and are now settled in our new home. You were fantastic and we’ll be sure to tell all our friends about your services. Thanks Again.

Guy and Lisa Richards and family.
