Cathy Baker Cleracres Cattery Bristol

Keeping things safe at Cleracres
January 2022 update from Cleracres proprietor Cathy Baker

While restrictions have now been lifted in England, here at Cleracres we feel it is important to remain vigilant to any continuing risks from the coronavirus. For this reason we shall be maintaining our policy of wearing face masks whilst on the site. This is both for the protection of our staff and the safety of all of our customers. We politely request that customers respect this when visiting us.

We have relaxed some of our safety measures – such as allowing customers to accompany cats to their chalets – but most of our safe operating procedures will remain in place for the present time. In particular we will be continuing our policy of allowing only one customer at a time in Reception. We appreciate your cooperation with this. To help avoid any delays on check-in we now have our Purr-Through Arrival System. Please consider using this method to help us process your arrival more efficiently. You can see details here…

Our cat loves it here, he’s always well looked after and enjoys the attention he gets.

Place where my cat is comfortable and happy.

Monica Slinn, (Google review)


Fantastic cattery. Have been using it for years. Quiet environment, no dogs barking and they both come home looking better than they went in! The staff are very friendly and always remember you and the cats. Would highly recommend.

The section featuring Cleracres begins at 25:30.

Our caring, attentive, cat-loving staff will make sure that your cat gets regular cuddles!

We can cater for special diets, offer a grooming service and, if required, can administer medication to your cat during their stay, including giving tablets and insulin injections for diabetic cats.

We can even collect your cat by arrangement and return them to your home after their stay with us.

Cleracres is exclusively dedicated to cats – no dogs or other animals are boarded.

You also have the reassurance of knowing that we have a vet on 24-hour call in the unlikely event of any emergency.
