Goose Rye Farm is situated in quiet rural surroundings between Woking and Guildford. The cattery is built to FAB standards and consists of 48 chalets for 1-2 cats and 7 Family chalets for 3-5 cats divided into 3 separate blocks and an isolation block. The chalets have thermostatically controlled heating   (included in price), a shelf under a window, a pophole into a covered run with another shelf and scratching post and look out onto gardens or paddocks which in the summer contain bantams, rabbits, tortoises and the latest addition, budgerigars, for entertainment. We do not board dogs and our own Boxers are well distanced away from the cattery.  A full Alarm system is in place during hours of closing.

Cats are cleaned and fed twice daily. The kitchen is stocked with a wide variety of wet and dried foods and fresh cooked fish and chicken are available daily. Veterinary and special diets must be supplied. You are welcome to bring any personal items to create a homely feel, such as bed, bedding, toys, scratching towers etc, but not own food bowls or dirt trays. Cats requiring grooming must be in good coat on arrival with own grooming equipment provided.

VIEWING is encouraged and welcomed at any time during opening hours, no appointment necessary.

All cats must have a current (ie within the 12 months) vaccination certificate for Feline enteritis and Cat Flu, this must always be presented on arrival. Flea treatment should be carried out prior to arrival. Details of any medical problems and medication should be detailed in writing and a medical card will be prepared. All our staff are fully trained in animal care and in administering both pills and injections. Should the need occur and when possible, the cats registered Veterinary Surgeon will be consulted otherwise the Cattery's registered Veterinary Surgeon will be used.
