This is the best cattery ever, verified by cats themselves who go in a sulk when they have to come home from their holidays they come home happy, brushed until they shine and clearly ready to go back. I would add another star for helping with our sspca adopted cat who lost almost all of his shyness and suspiciousness after just one stay see you next time guys, you are amazing.

I have had my cat there and my other cats before, it is the best clean, cosy, and most of all your cat is well looked after and given love, a deserving 5 star!

Maria Thomson 

Had my FIV+ cat for a little less than a week in the cattery and just got him back today!
He's a very nervous and timid cat and gets easily stressed but he's totally alright and came back as happy and healthy as he can be!

So many thanks for the team for caring for him and even bringing him back a day earlier! Definitely will use and recommend the cattery again!

Who owns Catseye Cattery?

The cattery is owned and run by husband and wife team, Michael and Helen Dickson. Open since April 2010, we now also have a team of 5 working with us to ensure first-class feline care at all times.

What is the building made from?

The main cattery facility is built from uPVC construction on a firm concrete base with tiled floor. There is a half uPVC panel and glass partition in each room. The safety glass “sneeze barriers” between each room ensures that no cat has direct contact with the neighbouring guest. The cattery building to solid, firm, weather-tight and secure – just like any other commercial facility – we have full planning permission and relevant building warrants.

The reception, cleaning room, kitchen and toilet is built and extended from the old barn which stood here – fully insulated and standard construction.

When Catseye Cattery is fully booked, do you recommend another cattery?

Not normally! Unfortunately, we are unable to recommend the quality of other catteries in the Edinburgh area. This is because we’re very focused on what we do at Catseye Cattery, and don’t have professional or personal experience of any alternative facilities.

Are you open every day of the week?

Yes! Unlike many of our competitors, we are open 7 days per week. Our opening hours are:

  • Mon-Fri 10am-5pm
  • Sat 10am-1pm
  • Sun 11am-1pm

As we’re a small family business, please respect our opening hours. We can sometimes by mutual agreement operate outwith these hours for arrivals or departures. Please ask a member of the team at time of booking if that is required.

Do you let the cats out?

A Big fat NO! Our guests will never leave the room that they are staying in unless for any reason we have to move them to another. This is for obvious reasons – we don’t want our guests escaping or coming into direct contact with another cat.

How do they get out into the garden?

Another NO! Catseye Cattery is situated in the lovely East Lothian countryside. Our landscaped garden and grounds are peaceful and idyllic! Although the cats in our care never leave their rooms, they have lots of lovely views and fresh air. They can watch the birds, other wildlife and see all the grasses in the garden rustle in the wind!


Do they have an outdoor run?

No, not really! The rooms have what we call “Semi-outdoor areas” with a fully heated indoor bedroom. The semi-outdoor area gets lots of fresh air and natural light – so outdoor cats feel like they’re outdoors and indoor cats love the simulation too!
