Cat Boarding

Leaving your cat behind when you go away on holiday or business is never easy. Have the peace of mind that they are in expert hands with one of Scotland’s longest-serving animal welfare facilities. We can offer all the love and care your cat needs while you’re away, and by using our service you are doing something wonderful to help those less-fortunate animals still seeking their forever homes. All profits made from our cat boarding services go back into the care of rescue pets from across Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Our Cattery Facilities

The Home’s boarding cattery offers a peaceful environment, where your furry friend can relax during your time away. Each cat pen is light, clean and comfortable, with a heating system that ensures the correct temperature whatever the time of year. Your cat will enjoy a spacious pen with access to an outside run, where they can stretch their legs and take in the world from a secure enclosure.

Catering to Your Cat’s Needs

  • Home Comforts. We provide food, bedding and litter trays, but if your cat has a special preference for toys or food, we are happy for you to bring these along for their stay.
  • Medications. We will administer most medications during our opening hours. Please see our terms and conditions for medical conditions that we are unable to care for.
  • Terms and Conditions. Please read our Terms and Conditions before making your enquiry, to ensure that your animal is eligible for a stay with us.


Cat Boarding Rates

Our competitive cat boarding rates make us one of the most affordable cattery services in Edinburgh and the Lothians. Per date rates are:

  • £11 for one cat
  • £18.70 per day (15% discount) for two cats (sharing a single pen)
