Since 1976

Kirkgate Cattery is West Lothian’s Premier Cattery and we provide luxury cat boarding.

The business is three generation family run, with my late parents-in-law, Bob and Edith Sanderson successfully diversifying in 1976 from farming, by creating and developing a cattery and small retail outlet.

Our customer relationships have been built upon our high standards of the facilities, strict hygiene protocols, competitive prices, and a strong customer focus.

Kirkgate Cattery is subject to “The Animal Boarding Establishments Act 1963”, and we are inspected and licensed annually by West Lothian Council.

If we can be of service to you or your family and friends, I welcome the opportunity to talk with you via ASK Laura or on (01506) 881 628

Best Regards,
