Welcome to the Fordham Boarding Cattery Website

Corona Virus Important Information

We will still only allow limited access to the cattery.

We still have to take great precaution as if we get sick then there will be no-one to look after the cats and you will be recalled from your holidays - so we all must be practical about access to the cattery to minimise the risks.


We will still only allow access to the normal Cattery entrance and to the normal cattery office while maintaining social distancing.

No-one will be allowed into the cattery pens - no exceptions so please do not ask.

Please feel free to contact us with any quieries or concerns

About Fordham Boarding Cattery

Fordham Boarding Cattery is owned and managed by Trevor & Keren Goff who purchased the cattery in July 2008. The cattery opened in 1996 and is situated in the rural village of Fordham, perfectly located for the surrounding towns and villages of Burwell, Ely, Mildenhall, Newmarket, and Soham, and only 11 miles from the University City of Cambridge.

We are delighted to announce that Fordham Boarding Cattery was voted by the public "Best Cat Boarding Service in the East of England" under the GHP Animal Health & Wellness awards 2018.

All our chalets have full height sneeze barriers so cats can see each other but are unable to make contact. There are 2' (60cm) gaps between each pair of chalets to ensure plenty of air circulation, therefore minimising the risk of infection.

The chalets are all heated & all overlook the garden providing double, quadruple and family occupancy (only cats from the same household may share chalets) We also have purpose built removable weather screens for protection against the elements.

Our cattery is fully licensed by East Cambs District Council to the 1st October 2018 Defra regulations ECDC Licensing

Our cattery is built and managed to Feline Advisory Bureau standard and so offers a high standard of boarding for your feline companions.
