THE owner of a new business just outside of Weston has swapped children for cats, as she takes a break from a career in teaching to reopen her cattery business.

Kara Farmhouse Cattery, in Hewish, has been closed for the past eight years, but has recently reopened its doors to a variety of feline guests.

Its owner, Christine Tulk, aged 54, ran the successful cattery almost a decade ago, but took a break to pursue her lifelong dreams of becoming a primary school teacher.

She said: “I had always wanted to be a teacher so I took a break and went into education, but now I’ve decided that cats are much easier than children.

“I am a devoted cat lover myself, I have always loved cats and currently have two of my own.”

The cattery has enough space to house 24 cats at any one time.

Christine said: “Obviously lots of people have already booked their cats in for upcoming holidays, but people are starting to realise we’re back and open.
