My Mother ( Jean ) has always loved Cats. In the 1960's Mum had a wish to open a cattery so that people could enjoy going on holiday knowing their cats were being cared for in a safe and secure environment. My parents lived in a lovely country cottage with over an acre of land, so they got busy building chalets and accommodation for cats to come and board with us and the Cattery launched in 1968. Word soon got around about this new novelty business venture and the fact that Cottam Cat Boarding Kennels offered a collection and delivery service for their clients pets, made this even more desirable for people who could not drive or travel to the Cattery. The paper clipping is from a local Newspaper telling the story of the Cattery business back in 1976 and the photo is of Mum holding two of our own cats.
My parents were very proud when i set up Helping Hands, I've been in business for a decade now ( 2007 - 2017) and provided thousands of visits for HH cats over the years, i think i have definitely inherited Jean's Genes ! ...... Cat Lady Dawn Jarrett ( Lister )
