Top-class care for North Somerset’s cats as ‘cat heaven’ opens in Claverham

Felines in need of a fabulous place to stay in North Somerset now have a new place to rest their paws, after a luxury cat hotel opened its doors.
The Jasmine Cattery, in Claverham, provides top-of-the-range boarding facilities for up to 28 cats set within six acres of countryside.
However, the cattery is keen to brand itself as a luxurious cat hotel, as each pen is kitted out with futuristic gadgets such as temperature-controlled bed heaters.
The business was launched by Sally and Adrian Kingscott at their home in Jasmine Lane, and it cost £40,000 to build.
Sally said: “Cats are like your family and it is key they are treated properly and are in a nice comfortable environment with something to do.
“It is lovely – I can wander out of my door into cat heaven.”
Sally said she was inspired to set up the cattery after keeping cats herself for several years.
She gained experience working with animals through running a successful dog-walking and pet-sitting business.
Sally said: “As a cat lover, owner and someone who is genuinely concerned about the welfare of cats, I have spent a great deal of time preparing our luxury cattery. As someone who has always adored cats, it seemed like a natural progression to go on and open my own cattery.
“I wanted a high-end, luxury feel to our cattery so as well as creating a high-quality, super-insulated bespoke building, we have equipped each pen with high-quality toys and equipment which will help to stimulate the cats and alleviate boredom.
“I have kept the cattery small so I can ensure every cat will have the individual attention it deserves and I have taken time to create a relaxing home-from-home environment.”
