Cats Protection supports ‘one of a kind’ book on cattery design

Cats Protection, the UK’s leading feline welfare charity, is proud to lend its support to a new book that will be a vital resource for anyone interested in cattery design and cat welfare.

Written by cattery and kennel design expert David Key and with information and a foreword provided by Cats Protection, Cattery Design – The Essential Guide to Creating your Perfect Cattery is a complete reference book for anyone interested in building or updating a cattery.
The hardback book contains the latest research and scientific studies on cat housing and cat welfare and contains practical advice to help the reader understand the importance of good design from the cat’s point of view. It is full of colour photographs and features interesting case studies from animal welfare charities and boarding catteries.

Author David Key said: “We hope this book will provide an awareness of how catteries can be improved using good cat welfare knowledge. We are absolutely delighted that Cats Protection is helping us to champion the book and encouraging people to build better places for our feline friends.”
