What types of
catteries will this kit help?
The information will help ALL types of catteries: boarding,
rescue, quarantine, veterinary, pet and breeders.
Mostly though, our customers are caring people interested in boarding catteries
in particular as they need to 'make a living' from
caring for cats (thanks to the very high cost of property/ land today!)
Many cat carers are interested in opening a rescue but
it is just not financially possible as it's hugely expensive) so we provide
a lot of help for potential/new boarding cattery owners. Once your boarding
cattery is making an income though, you will be in a position to help the
local rescue, or do it on a small scale yourself
need any qualifications or have to attend courses to be a cattery
This is one of the top 10 questions we get asked - which is why we've included
it in the 'Starting a Cattery Kit'! There is a BASIC simple yes or no answer
in terms of legislation and location, BUT there is a LOT more to consider
in answering it - especially in the important terms of success of
new catteries in today's climate.
We want you to have all the facts to hand, and explain exactly what
you do need to study. Perfect when you're trying to find out the
answers to all these questions! You can go directly to the 10 questions
below - just click here.
all this information already available in the Cattery Design book?
Only a very small part of it - the book and the kit do very different things.
The Cattery Design book concentrates
on cattery design, planning & building with special
reference to how good design improves cat welfare and
reduces stress. It's also packed full of large colour
photos to give you masses of inspiration and ideas!
The Starting a Cattery Kit concentrates
on the start-up information for beginners, finding
out if it's right for you, and how to survey a property/location.
It really explores the whole idea of starting a cattery
- giving an insight to people who know very little
about starting or running a cattery, or not done it
2 eBooks are unique (Cattery Property
Audit & Is It Right for Me?) These
are very detailed and have been written to provide
much more 'hand-holding'. Neither are in the book.
The 3rd eBook on buying a cattery is from the Cattery
Is there a 'hard copy of the kit
available by post?
No, it is online to keep the costs down, give immediate
access without postal costs!
It also means that we can make any
new additions immediately available, clickable links, movies etc.
The eBooks are designed to be printed and filled in. The Kit pages
can be printed.
Part 1. The 10 questions are online in webpages.
This is because it reduces the price for you (no print costs), there are
no postage costs, gives immediate access - and we provide interesting
and helpful weblinks and movies that you can just click on whilst
doing your research.
Part 2. The eBooks are downloadable, to be saved
to your computer.
The idea is that you can print off as many as
you need - particularly the Property
Audit which you would want to fill out a different copy for
each property visited. As some people visit many properties, we'd
much rather you had all the information immediately, the ability
to print as few/many as you want, when you want.
We like to pack our books and websites with photos, movies, links
and enthusiasm to make it fun and interesting whilst you're learning!
Can I get immediate

can I access the kit for?

where to start in your first week!
