Our cattery will be closed for visitation  for 2 weeks due to illness. The protection of the animals in our care as well as your public pets is paramount to us. We appreciate your support during this time and will re-open as soon as our kittens and cats are ready to see visitors again. Please watch here for updates as this can change. Please note that the kennel and small animal room remain open for visitors.
