Until recently, this website was the home of the Essex Boarding Cattery Directory, which existed to help cat owners in Essex who were looking for a local boarding cattery. Earlier this year the Essex Cattery Directory was merged into the British Cattery Directory, which provides listings of local boarding catteries across the UK, and not only Essex. If you don't want to read more and simply want to find a local cattery in Essex, click the button below.
Having seen the success of our regional cattery directories, which covered 12 major UK regions, we decided to expand the service by creating a single cattery directory - the British Cattery Directory - to cover all of mainland UK. For many cat owners, the British Cattery Directory will make finding a local cattery easier, particularly for cat owners living in places such as the borders of Essex, allowing them to search for catteries not just in Essex but also in the Greater London area and neighbouring counties, as well as by Postcode area or town name.
For your convenience, catteries are displayed in a directory-style format. Clicking on any of the catteries displayed will then take you to a page containing a description of the cattery, any contact details that were provided to us (usually including telephone, email and the cattery's website address) plus their postal address and a Google map showing where the cattery is located. Everything you need, basically.
Essex-catteries.co.uk and several other premium domain names we own but don't need are now available for purchase.
You can read more about us on the 'about us' page, but if you want to know who we are, we're a small group of freelance website designers, who also happen to be long-standing friends, working as a group under the name of BeenDesigned. We originally start building websites as a hobby, and over time the hobby turned into a full-time job. Hobby or job, we still enjoy designing websites. We don't expect to get rich, and we do quite a bit of work with local charity groups, both in the UK and Italy (where some of us live), creating websites for groups we support in lieu of making donations. However, voluntary work aside, we also design websites for paying customers! Every order we take for a website is dealt with by a single designer, who takes personal care and pride in what he or she does. In an age where many designers take orders to build websites and then farm the work out to low-cost centres in Asia and elsewhere, we offer clients a genuinely personal service.
