Our story – the cattery

Dee May has always had a love of all animals and trained as a vet nurse in her early career.
Prior to opening Cats Whiskers cattery in 2002 she worked as a receptionist for Mercer & Hughes veterinary surgeons in Saffron Walden.
During this time she realised the need for a cattery where the clients cats could be looked after in the same way she would like her own pets to be cared for with the same amount of loving care.
With her vision, assistance from family and to the specifications of the local animal warden the purpose made cattery was built.
Construction was completed in June 2002 when it opened for business.
We have built up a wealth of experience in all situations and provide a professional and caring service to all our visitors who come from the local surrounding areas including Bishops Stortford, Cambridge, Haverhill, Braintree and as far afield as London.
