A CATTERY in Burton has announced that it will be closing its business later this month.

West Burton Kennels is closing a proportion of its business on March 31.

Described as a ‘holiday for your pets’, the business offers six acres of gardens and a ‘modern approach to animal boarding’.

The decision to close came down to ‘economic circumstances’.

The kennels will however remain open.  

On its website, it reads: “Sadly due to economic circumstances we are closing our cattery.

“We will miss all the cats and their owners.

“The cattery will be closed on March 31, 2024.

“Thank you for your understanding.”

The cattery offered an enclosed resting area and separate play space with chairs, scratch posts, and play equipment.

Hannah, the owner of the kennels and cattery stated on the website: “I wanted to build a boarding facility where the animals can be fulfilled, by offering them activities and enrichment.

“I also have always had a dog by my side and a cat on my sofa, so I completely understand that pets are our family and should be treated as so.”

Daily Echo approached the cattery who refused to comment.

West Burton Kennels is situated at West Burton Farm House, Winfrith Newburgh.
