Cattery Cabin

Avey Lane Boarding Cattery in Essex is located on the edge of Epping Forest. It is close to Waltham Abbey in a brand new premises and is set in 8 acres of fields, where we are able to continue our 12 years of looking after cats for discerning owners.

Our 48 newly built double chalets all have individual thermostatically controlled heating which ensure that your cat enjoys their stay with us.

The cattery is located close to Waltham Abbey and is just 2 miles from Junction 26 on the M25, so it is easy to reach us from North London and from all parts of Essex.

We will happily collect or deliver your cat for you (weekdays only, if you are not able to get to the cattery. This will help you to make the most of your time away and to enjoy your holiday.

Chalet accommodation for cats

All of our guests are fed the food that is stipulated by their owners, so that they are comfortable in their temporary home. We look after cats with particular dietary needs at no extra expense and we are also able to administer medication or injections if need be. Please note – we are able to give medication in a morning and afternoon but we are not able to give it 12 hours apart.

Visit our boarding cattery

You are welcome to visit our boarding cattery facilities during our opening hours, so that you can see where your cat will be staying during your holiday.

House and corridor on mirror-side

Our chalets are large enough to accommodate four cats from one family. All of our cattery chalets are individually heated.

Each chalet has a window and in some of our newly refurbished chalets we have introduced mirrors on the walls, to add interest for cats during their stay with us, which some clients prefer.

The chalets on the ‘mirror’ side of the cattery also have carpet and new lights which add a touch of extra comfort.

Waltham Abbey Cattery

There are very few requirements on your part but we do need to see your cat’s up-to-date inoculation certificate which we have to keep whilst they are with us. Bringing some of their toys, scratching posts and beds will mean that your cat is home from home.

The boarding cattery is open Monday to Friday 9.30am-3.00pm and Saturday and Sunday 9.30am-12.00pm. We are closed on bank holidays for arrivals and collections.

Please note and respect our opening hours when you arrive with or collect your cats.
