In line with Covid 19 Health & Safety guidelines, we regret that visitors cannot enter the cattery as we cannot implement social distancing within the Cattery Units. So we are operating a 'single person Drop & Collect' service in our car-park at the Cattery 1-2pm PLEASE NOTE EVENING SERVICE IS UNAVAILBLE AT THIS TIME.. Cat-Carriers must be sanitised in advance of drop off, & we request that you wear gloves and a face covering during the handover, and observe the 2m distancing. Alternatively we can arrange collection/drop back service to your home in local areas. 

Our family run Cattery in South Dublin Stepaside, is run by Cat Lovers - For Cat Lovers, creating a loving environment for your cat. Stepaside Cattery operates to the highest industry standards, and is an audited member of IBKCA (Irish Boarding Kennels & Cattery Association) ensuring top animal care. We partner with 2 leading veterinary practices Martin O Toole, Village Vets, Sandyford and Eamann Moore, Blackrock Veterinary (See Useful Contacts page to contact them)

At Stepaside Cattery, we provide all the comforts of home for our furry visitors with spacious chalets overlooking our peaceful country garden - Classical Music by day, TV at night-time, Heated Beds in Winter, & Air Conditioning in Summer, Aromatherapy Relaxation Oils, & lots of TLC along the way !! Run by my sister Jo and myself for the past 9 years, we have personally cared for over 1,000 cats at our cattery, and during our daily Home Visit service -  all with different personalities and needs. We tailor your cats stay to their individual requirement. We also specialise in long term stays, daily Homecare visits, and also work with international pet transportation compnies where cats are being re-located to and from Ireland.  

Most of our clients are referrals come from local Vets, Vetrinary Hospitals and Cat Rescue Centres, so our reputation speaks for itself! We don't advertise, as most of our clientelle are regualr visitors who have got to know us well over the years.. but we are always happy to welcome new visitors to our lovely Cattery. However we tend to be booked in advance during peak seasons, so early booking is a must!! Each cat is exercised INDIVIDUALLY 3 times a day while we clean down and feed, so they get a chance to stretch their legs and have a run about within the safe environment of our enclosed purpose built cattery.Hygiene standards are our priority and so cats do not mix, but while exercising can 'chat' to our other furry guests through the door, or between the glass anti-germ barriers between chalets. WE ALSO PROVIDE A HOME VISIT SERVICE IN OUR LOCAL AREA TO YOUR HOME EACH DAY IF YOUR CAT PREFERS TO STAY AT HOME WHILE YOU ARE ON HOLIDAYS

What Our Clients Say ...

"My cat Charlie had a wonderful time your attention to his every need is un-believable -
thank you for looking after him" Betty, The Gallops, Sandyford

"Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of Tiger. We feel so lucky that we found such a warm, caring and safe environment for our cat, and especially appreciate that you were able to keep her until we moved into our new home. She has settled in well and seems very happy, content and healthy. She obviously enjoyed her time with you!" Tia, UK

'It used to break my heart to leave Jake behind when I went away as I worried he would be lonely without me as he's always by my side. I don't worry anymore as I couldn't have found him a better home away from home! I know he's in good hands at Stepaside Cattery. Thanks for taking such good care of my best friend, Suzanne! Saleema, Kilmainham

"Rumple was really happy and relaxed after her 2 month stay, I could see that she had been nice and settled and had been very well looked after and welcomed into the homely environment of stepaside cattery'' " Alexina, Ranelagh

Jaffa : "Suzanne has a really positive attitude towards looking after your furry family members and leaves you assured they will be cared for in the best possible way" TIna, Terenure.

"Tiger went to Stepaside Cattery as a young kitten - we were aprehensive leaving him at such a young age, but he had a lovely time and was very well cared for at Stepaside Cattery - highly recommend it!" Joanne, Dalkey

"Rocky lives outdoors most of the time but the chalets at Stepaside Cattery are so spacious, and even have tree branches for the cats to climb on, so he felt right at home!" Frances, Sandycove

"Simba & Sasha stayed at Stepaside Cattery on two occasions for 11 days & 7 days. They had a really clean, bright "room" both times. Suzanne cared for them in a very personal way. She has a keen interest in all her resident felines! On my return from holidays they were both happy & alert. I would recommend Stepaside Cattery, with Suzanne as the personal feline 'carer'!! Rita, Leopardstown

'Brutus was a different cat when we got her back compared to previous stays in other catteries... She's doing great and no doubt will be staying with you again soon' Tanis, Sandymount
