Who Are We ?


The Paws Cats © 2020


This journey started for me in 2004 when two gorgeous, but somewhat troubled kittens, came into my life. Holly first, there was a message on the company intranet to say that there was a kitten that no-one wanted, she had been homed for 4 x weeks but the owners didn't want to keep her, my heart went out to her. So I took her home that night, stopping to get supplies. When we got home she disappeared behind the washing machine for 3 x days! She has had issues all her life but is mellowing over time with love and support

Then came Monty, what I thought was a ginger boy kitten to grow up to protect Holly. However a few weeks after the Vet had checked Monty out I discovered what I thought was a rash and so went back to the Vet, only to be told that my boy kitten was in fact a girl! She already knew her name and so Monty she stayed. Monty is my ‘shadow’ and is a very loving and affection cat.


Once the girls got more settled, I started to think about my holidays so needed to find somewhere where I felt my girls would be happy. My vision of what a cat hotel should be like and the reality were very different. And so the seed was planted as I realised that I could do much better and provide a fun, loving, caring and enriched environment that would mirror what I wanted to provide for my ‘girls’.

Quite a few years on and the drive has been to do just that and so with a lot of thought, preparation and hard work I am proud to finally introduce to you…Posh Paws Cat Hotel.

Guest Suites


My purpose built suites are made to the highest British Standards and are manufactured to the exacting standards as set out in the Animal Act 2007 updated in October 2018. Fully licensed and insured. Independently owned and run by me.

A soft planted environment allowing enrichment from their surroundings and aiming to sooth away any anxieties that they may have initially from being away from home and you.

They are the first thing I check on in the morning and the last thing at night saying good night and giving them a cuddle before bedtime. All guests are given lots of time, attention, play and love to make sure that they settle in, enjoy their holiday, going home happy and wanting to return.There is 24/7 full CCTV coverage, actioned by both sound and motion and so I have my eyes and ears on them at all times and the hotel is covered by the NEST Protect system.

I ensure that our guests have everything that they may need during their stay with me and to that end, and also as a requirement of the licensing process, I hold a Level 3 Qualification in Feline Care, Behaviour and Welfare, which is above the required licensing level in Care of Felines in Catteries and Feline Behaviour and Psychology.

Guest Service


From kittens to seniors, pedigree or rescue, special diets, mediation or just nurturing the nervous guest, I will always go that extra mile to make sure that guests settle in and feel at home.

My goal is to provide peace of mind to the loving cat owner by offering a safe, clean and comfortable facility, looked after by a knowledgeable, animal-loving professional.

Our pets are very special to us. They enrich our lives daily and provide us with a unique companionship that is different to our other relationships in life. In your absence your special family members deserve the best that I can give them. Posh Paws is a boutique hotel, I dedicate the time to our guests and the one to one attention that they deserve. My aim is to ensure that they have an enjoyable stay, and you have a worry free holiday.

Guest Commitment


Whilst your family members are with me, please feel free to email so that I can keep you updated or indeed provide you with a photo or short video for reassurance and peace of mind that they are happy and being well looked after. I don’t want to replace the love and care that you provide for them but that I can support the same care in your absence making sure that your loved ones aren’t anxious or stressed in anyway.

Customer Feedback

  • "Posh Paws Hotel is a beautiful new cattery. It is evident that Viv has poured her heart and love into setting up this fantastic establishment with 100% care for your feline friends in mind The pens have all been named after 5* hotels from across the world. There is enrichment for the cats during their stay within and outside their individual hotels. The reception area is welcoming and the entire environment is focused on your feline friends being fully cared for. We haven't yet been able to use Viv's facility, due to lockdown 3, but will definitely be booking in the future when able too, which we hope will be very soon"
