If you haven't heard of us at Cattery Design yet, let me introduce
David Key to you...
David has been designing animal facilities professionally,
working for some of the most well known animal rescues, boarding, working
and quarantine organisations in the world.
David is also the best-selling author of the books:
Design] and also
(you can find these books in every Amazon online store worldwide, every well-known
internet bookshop, and on our websites)
David's books are used as college/university text books for
kennel and cattery management and animal welfare courses.
World-renowned cat charity: [Cats
Protection] wrote the Foreword and an article for our Cattery
Design book, and in their press release said:
“As the UK’s leading feline welfare charity, Cats Protection
is very pleased to be involved with a book that emphasises the importance
of providing the best possible environment for cats”
Also the Cattery Design book includes case studies and helpful
advice from our colleagues at the world-renowned [BCSPCA],
(Feline Advisory Bureau)], [Blue
Cross], and [Wood
Green Animal Shelters] and others as well as top boarding
catteries and cat hotels - all our case studies are from the UK,
America and Canada.
We included advice from leading feline welfare behaviour/veterinary
experts to explain in plain English exactly what makes good cattery
design, how to improve every cattery, and why these recommendations
work (they are powerful and produce absolutely amazing results!).
David works for a national animal welfare rescue and rehoming
charity called [The
Blue Cross]for over 20 years, so you can easily guess his interest
and motivation is based solely on improving animal welfare.
Animal shelters take the hardest wear and tear of all – and
often deal with cats in need of the greatest care, from initial disorientation
through to actual trauma. So - if David's advice on cattery design
can help these cats who are most in need - you can EASILY
imagine how they can help cats during a temporary stay in a boarding
The difference you can make to cats
- with the right knowledge,
is E N O R M O U S ! ! !
We also advise individual organisations in other
ways including consultancy, advice, information, expert witness in
court cases, advising architects, surveyors and builders --- plus of
course our online service to hundreds of startups and existing boarding
David has also had the privilege of assisting hundreds of
animal lovers worldwide to become cattery owners themselves.
Working for a big rescue for such a long time, you can just
imagine the breadth of cattery facilities, suppliers, products,
materials and level of care he has seen - from cruel to amazing.
I (Kay) look after our Members and customers, and design and publish
the books and all our websites, including this one.
And to make sure as many people benefit from this special knowledge
we pour all this hard-to-come-by and useful information into our websites and
- with the aim that no-one 'has' to reinvent the wheel!
It is this knowledge David wants to share
with you to improve cattery standards.
We use our knowledge and experience to help people create MUCH better
facilities for our beautiful cat friends... to reduce their stress, have
a much happier time in the cattery, or get adopted sooner.
