About Cattery Design


Cattery Design provides a source of advice, information and help to everyone thinking about starting, building, upgrading or maintaining a cattery.

There is also a sister site for Kennel Design.

Raising the standards, expectations & design of catteries and kennels

The websites are here to give you the information and support you need to build the best standard of cattery or kennels you can, to match your and your cats' and dogs' needs, create a building that is easy to maintain and one in which the design helps reduce stress and promote a healthy environment for cats.

It is important that you spend your build money wisely, whatever your cattery will be used for. Think deeply about the style and quality of business you want to set up - as quality and caring catteries are greatly and increasingly in demand.

Previously, it was difficult for people to find this information, (imagine every potential kennel or cattery owner individually looking for these answers!) and the first questions asked are usually "is it right for me" and "where do I start?".
