About us

A cattery nestled at the foot of the Quantocks

Affectionately known as “the crazy cat ladies” amongst our friends and family; we are the lucky proprietors of Little Downs Cattery, which is situated in the village of Lydeard St Lawrence near Taunton. We have been the owners of Little Downs since October 2018 and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all our loyal customers – and of course their cats! We love meeting new customers and their cats too, so book an appointment to come and meet us and take a tour around!

Meet Jo…

Jo is a marine Biologist by degree and has spent the last ten years working in the animal Nutrition and Bedding industry. She is also AMTRA (Animal Medicines Training Regulatory Authority) qualified meaning we are able to look after diabetic cats or cats needing any kind of medication. She prides herself on her ability to communicate with people and works extra hard to make sure your calls and questions are always answered swiftly and thoroughly. She is particularly interested in all the different breeds of cats and getting to know the cats that stay at Little Downs Cattery well.

Meet Susie…

Susie worked in the Royal Navy as a Helicopter Engineer for 18 years and retired from forces life in 2012. She is amazingly practical and works tirelessly to make sure the cattery and grounds are clean, tidy and looking meticulous. She obtained a cattery management qualification in 2018 and is totally committed to caring for the cats. She is a big softie and can always be found in one of the chalets cuddling, talking to, or grooming the cats!
