Wayne Littlechild, Cattery Manager

"My Father and I set up Catnap when we moved to the Oast House over twenty years ago. We have always loved animals and we wanted it to be a caring cattery where cats are well cared for and their owners were happy to leave them with us. Many of our customers have been with us from the start so we know which of their cats like a cuddle and those who don’t!"

Olga Johnson, Admin Manager

"When we moved to the Oast House I managed the planning and design of the cattery so that it blended with the Oast House but met the highest specifications. My husband who managed Catnap for 20 years told everyone that he didn‘t really believe it was happening until the JCB turned upon our front lawn! After 12 months planning and two months construction we had our grand opening of the Cattery by the late Bert Kwouk in 1998. It was well worth all the effort!"
