Visit Almora
There is a video tour of the cattery - we have everything from secluded spots for shy cats to large pens for families of six!
Meet The Team
Almora Cattery is owned and run by Darryl Davies and Jenny Heeley. In our previous careers, Darryl was a research scientist before becoming a chemistry teacher, while Jenny was an early years and special needs teacher. We met in Egypt and then spent over 20 years teaching together in international schools in various countries including Ecuador, Sudan and China. Why a cattery? Well, we wanted a change of lifestyle and we both love cats, so we took our Cattery and Kennel Management qualifications and here we are! Jenny deals more with the day-to-day cattery operations, including feeding so all the cats love her! Darryl deals more with the business side of things, including bookings, but it is a team effort! We travelled everywhere with our two cats, Stella and Artois, who we rescued in Egypt when they were very young. They are no longer with us but are still greatly missed. The newest member of Team Almora is Chloe, who joined us in November 2023. She came to us when her owner unfortunately could no longer take care of her. Chloe is a black and white domestic long hair who loves a brush and especially likes to chase things around the living room!


Stella was only about a day old when we first saw her. We had to feed her specially-made solution with a pipette and put her in a box next to a bottle of warm water for her to sleep. She loved sleeping on knees, chasing her giraffe and waking us up early!

Artois (Arty)

Arty was a beautiful ginger female who we rescued from the street when she was about a month old. She loved being outside in the garden and chasing sticks. For a big cat, she was very nimble on her feet and once caught a humming bird!


Chloe joined us in November 2023 when her owner was unfortunately not able to take care of her any more. She loves to roam around the garden, so you may see her around and about!
