About us


Aristocats was established in 1995, its aim to provide a superior level of holiday accommodation for cats. When the previous owners retired in October 2010, the cattery was purchased by Calcaria Vet, a local Veterinary Practice with surgeries operating in Tadcaster and York. The cattery is still staffed by the same team of people so you will still see familiar faces when you come to see us.


Aristocats has an enviable reputation, not only for the quality of our care of your beloved pets, but also for ensuring that your pets have a stress free stay with us, and are as equally refreshed as you are when you return from your holiday. Over the last 30 years, thousands of cats have enjoyed their stay with us, and many of them return several times a year.

We are very happy to provide accommodation to suit you - from a single overnight stay to a lengthy stay. Should you have an emergency and need to book in at short notice we will always do our best to help. We aim to take away the worry of looking after your pet whilst you concentrate on getting over the crisis - that's one of the reasons why we operate every day of the year, to care for your pets.

We are always available to answer your queries, or to give help and advice. We will always try to answer the phone during working hours but if we are unable to answer it will be because we are out in the cattery with the cats. On these occasions, please do leave us a message and we will come back to you within 24hours. Alternatively, please feel free to email us.

The team currently comprises of

Kate - Director

Katie - Senior/Relief Manager

Amy - Senior/Relief Manager

Dida - Senior Cattery Assistant

Sophie - Cattery Assistant

Jo - Cattery Assistant

We are very proud of the reputation that Aristocats has and fully intend to continue with the excellent level of service that has been offered in the past. We will also strive to keep the wonderful relationship between the cattery and it's loyal customers.

We are here to care for your little feline treasures, and, as we say

"Cuddles come free"
