Welcome to Orchard Farm Cattery
We all love our cats and
it's always a worry to leave them with somebody else. Well, there's no
need to worry any more! Here at Orchard Farm we have what we consider
the best facilities for the comfort and well-being of your cat. We, and
our staff, are all cat lovers
and you can rest assured that your beloved cat will be well cared for -
and loved. And we are on site 24 hours a day.
Orchard Farm Cattery is set in over four acres of Hertfordshire
countryside and is
accessible only through security gates on a quiet country lane with no
through traffic (apart from a bus, now and again).
For your peace of mind we would love to show you around our cattery.
Please contact us by email or phone, or visit us during our opening
For extra peace of mind, check out our FAQ's page
(Frequently Asked Questions).
Orchard Farm Cattery has been open since 2004 and, during that time, we have received many
recommendations from local vets. In fact, many of the local vets and
veterinary nurses use
our cattery for their own animals.

Security is high on our list of priorities so all of our runs have been
designed to allow nothing out and nothing in! We have even installed
double safe access doors to prevent a cat making a bolt for it when we
need to feed or attend to it.
Here at Orchard Farm we are proud to take part in the Work Experience placement scheme.
We work with local secondary schools and are fortunate to be able to help many young
adults gain experience for their future careers as vets and veterinary nurses. Seb joined me last summer for work experience as part of his veterinary training.
Jordan helps me full time and does a wonderful job caring for our cats, as do all our staff.
COVID - Only one person at a time in the office. Please wear a mask.
PLEASE NOTE: You may see a FOR SALE sign as you enter the Cattery site. This only refers to the sale of one of the two houses.
The Cattery is not affected and will go on, hopefully, indefinitely. I will still be living on site in the house behind the Cattery.
