Cattery in Ticino

Can anyone recommend a cattery in Ticino or just over the border in Italy? Really want to make the most of living here and travel around a bit but having problems finding someone to look after our cat while we're away.

Re: Cattery in Ticino

Hey hey.... I totally oversaw your introductions back then when you joined.
Hope everything is proceeding well w/ your newborn, italian lessons, etc.

When we still had our cat our neighbors and a friend took care of her...
I would ask the vet to point me in the right direction.

I can try to ask around next week... will let you know something...

Ciao

Re: Cattery in Ticino

Just a follow-up on this - I spoke to the vet and got a recommendation for a local cattery/kennels:

http://www.mulinoprudenza.com/

I've booked our cat in for a stay as the website looks good and I spoke to the owners (plus we couldn't find any other options!) - haven't visited yet but will do before Elsie Fluff goes on her hols. Although the website does look very dog-focussed apparently they have a separate sections for cats.

Will report back once we've visited/Elsie has stayed.

Re: Cattery in Ticino

Just some feedback on the cattery/kennels we used in Ticino. All seems good - the cat area is small but separate from the dogs (although you will need to carry the cat through an area with dogs running free) and the cages were a decent size, clean, had plenty of food & water and things to entertain the cats (they even leave the radio on for company!). We're happy enough to have booked Elsie in again in July.

Re: Cattery in Ticino

Could you perhaps put your recommendation in here too. It helps folk searching in the future to find stuff all together.
