About Us and Where to Find Us
We are situated in a quiet country lane in the lovely North Essex countryside but still only 10 to 15 minutes from Braintree, Halstead and Coggeshall and Stansted is only half an hour's drive away.
We are a small family business which means plenty of individual attention for your cat. We go out of our way to bond with each cat and provide a stimulating environment for them. They will get a lot of attention and nothing is too much trouble - whether they are kittens requiring lots of playtime, or senior citizens just needing a quiet life and a cozy corner to watch the world go by.
We are trained in animal first aid - from minor injuries to administering CPR. Extra special care such as the administration of drugs or ointments are not a problem nor are insulin injections.
We love the quiet and tranquil atmosphere here and hope your cats will too. Mrs Simpson's is exclusively for cats.
Of course, we supply bedding and toys but feel free to to bring your own as this will help to settle your cat in.
We have over 30 years' experience of looking after cats - Mrs Simpson was our first cat! We first met her when she was four weeks old and she came to live with us along with her brother when she was six weeks old. She lived to the grand old age of 19 and was the kindest and most loving cat you could ever hope to meet.
It can be an emotional time leaving your best friend when you go on holiday. To give you peace of mind we are very happy to send regular updates by email or text and we have a Facebook page where we can post pictures if you would like us to do this.
We have other animals here at our home including chickens and horses so, of course, we have 24 hours supervision . This includes CCTV cameras linked to our house which is only yards away from the cattery building.
Hygiene is top priority. All pens are cleaned daily. Litter trays regularly checked and feeding bowls cleaned after each meal. Sneeze barriers are fitted between each pen and bedding thoroughly washed after each cat's stay. The building has been newly converted to a cattery with ease of cleaning in mind - all surfaces are bright and wipeable.
We would love to show you around!
