Sitting on the Wrexham – Shropshire Border, we have a peaceful location, where your cat can spend their time playing, climbing, peering out of the windows or sleeping.
Gone Fishing Cat Hotel is owned and operated by Lisa Hannaby.
Alongside running the hotel, Lisa is a Freelance Science Writer and Consultant in Nutrition and Psychology. You will find her regular features in Edition Dog and Cat Magazine, along with On The Couch Magazine. Lisa is also the Researcher, Content Writer and Feline Nutrition Consultant for My Pet Nutritionist, a company providing personalised nutrition for a healthier pet with a focus on fresh feeding, bespoke plans, supplements and science.
All rooms are built using impermeable plastic to enable daily easy cleaning. We use high level disinfectants to ensure the areas stay clean and bug free!
Activity centres and ramps will be found in each room, along with plenty of opportunities to hide for those more cautious cats!
We know that boxes and cocoon beds are perfect for reducing stress levels in a new environment. Pairing this with our Feliway plug-in pheromone diffuser, we can confidently say our cats settle relatively quickly.
We can provide both wood pellet and clay litter, although wood pellet is always our first choice. We are trying to reduce our impact on the environment as a family, so this want naturally seeps into our business choices.
We are proud to be a raw feeding cat hotel; we stock Purrform Raw Cat Food and can provide this during your cat’s stay. We have a range of recipes and treats that can be tailored to your cat’s individual nutritional requirements and preferences. Being a Nutrition Consultant, Lisa will be happy to discuss your cat’s individual needs.
We also stock Whiskas and Felix Wet and Dry food for those cats not eating a raw diet. These are included in the daily tariff.
Owners are more than welcome to provide food should our stock not be suitable, but we are unable to offer any discounts.
Only families of cats are housed together. Our design allows cats to think they are the only ones here, which can help some more territorial cats settle. That said, some more friendly cats are more than happy to go for a wander around the Cat Hotel when their own door is open during housekeeping.
Our full length windows allow plenty of natural light, providing ample sunbathing opportunities or to simply watch the birds in the garden. We also have one end room with it’s very own windowsill – this room is often reserved by owners for those outdoor cats who aren’t as excited about the Cat Hotel as others.
Owners are encouraged to settle their cat into the Hotel, by bringing them into their room and setting the room how they choose. Beds, blankets and toys are all welcome from home. As are dressing gowns or jumpers with a home scent.
We pride ourselves on making it a stress-free experience for both cats and owners alike.
We know how these feline’s become part of the family and how big of a decision it is to entrust someone with the care of them!
We are thankful so many of our customers do; please feel free to check out our reviews and testimonials.
