2024 will be 10 years since we designed, built and opened Hedgerows Cattery for the first time.
It's been a fantastic journey for us both and we have met some gorgeous and interesting cats as well as their loving and caring owners. Its fair to say that we love what we do and feel privileged to be able to make our living doing something we feel so passionate about.
You may or may not be aware that during the past couple of years, for a variety of reasons many Catteries in the Norwich/Norfolk area have closed or have plans to do so. This has massively increased demand on what was already a thriving business. Our 2024 calendar is already filling up fast and we have already opened our books for 2025.Yes some people really are that organised ! Sadly we cannot accommodate all the requests for boarding, which has led us to reflect on our options.
We have discussed expanding the Cattery itself, but the building costs in the current financial environment prevent this being a viable proposal. In addition we love Hedgerows as it is and don't want to spoil its special feeling by getting too big.
After some serious consideration we have decided that starting in January 2024, you will see a new face or two working with us, enabling us to offer some additional cat friendly services. This will also offer resilience for when we are away allowing Hedgerows to stay open throughout the year.
Plus Cat Taxi and Home Feeding services
Hedgerows at Home
We are going to offer a daily drop in cat feeding service. Initially focusing on the NR14 & NR15 postcode areas. Get the same high standard of care offered at Hedgerows but in your own home and delivered by the cat people you know and trust.
Hedgerows Cats on the move - A Cat Taxi Service
Would you prefer to avoid the car journey to or from Hedgerows. The noise, sick or worse? Let us collect or deliver your cat and loose that stress. Do you struggle to get your cat to the vets? Let us take your cat for you or assist with getting them there and home again.
We would really appreciate your views and comments on these ideas to help us provide the very best service we can. If you feel more comfortable sending us a personal message that’s fine too.
We look forward to hearing from you.
