Welcome to the Fordham Boarding Cattery Website
Our cattery is built and managed to Feline Advisory Bureau standard and so offers a high standard of boarding for your feline companions.
Purchased in July 2008 by the new owners, Trevor and Keren Goff, Fordham Boarding Cattery opened in 1996 and is situated in the rural village of Fordham, perfectly located for the surrounding towns and villages of Burwell, Ely, Mildenhall, Newmarket, and Soham, and only 11 miles from the University City of Cambridge.
We always welcome and encourage owners to visit our cattery to discuss anything they may be concerned with regarding boarding, especially if their pet has not been boarded before. We are happy to show you round the cattery, so you can view the facilities available, and view some of the cats in situ.
We have 31 full height chalets with adjoining covered runs, with tinted roofs to protect cats from UV rays.
All chalets have full height sneeze barriers so cats can see each other but are unable to make contact. There are 2' (60cm) gaps between each pair of chalets to ensure plenty of air circulation, therefore minimising the risk of infection.
The chalets are heated & all overlook the garden providing double, quadruple and family occupancy (only cats from the same household may share chalets) We also have purpose built removable weather screens for protection against the elements.
Should you require to drop off or collect your cat outwith these times we will do our best to accommodate you.
Although we do not close for lunch, we still need to eat (!) which we try to do between 1pm and 2pm. If you think you will be dropping off or collecting during this period, please let us know in advance.
We aim to be as flexible and reasonable with clients as possible however, we ask that clients respect our "own" time and refrain from calling outwith our opening hours (unless it is a true emergency) - you can still e-mail us at any time!
Please note that we will be closed to the public on the following dates in 2013/2014:
