• The Home Of The Happy Cat

    Established in 1972, Greenacre Cattery is situated in the quiet countryside between Great Bromley and Ardleigh. We aim to provide a safe, caring, stress-free place for you to leave your cat whilst you are away from home. We only provide care for cats and other small animals, helping us preserve the peace and tranquillity at the cattery which we believe is so important. The staff are all animal lovers but chosen for their special passion for cats.

    Several different types of pens are available including modern UPVC cabins alongside more traditional wooden pens allowing you to match your cat, be it a lively kitten or a more elderly puss to the best accommodation for them.

    The commonest concern owners have when considering how their cat should be cared for whilst they are away is, "Will my cat be stressed or not settle in a cattery?". From experience we now know that if the environment and care within the cattery is right, almost all cats settle within 24 hours and have eaten and used the litter tray by the morning following arrival. From that point on we will try to match the care and attention to what your cat shows us it wants. This can range from lots of cuddles and grooming if they like it for the more outgoing cats, through to gentle reassurance for the more nervous puss.

    You are welcome to visit the cattery to meet the owners, the staff and to view the cattery, no appointment is necessary; our view is if we are open then you are welcome.
