Who are we?

Nick and Suzi Cooper

Suzi and Nick Cooper moved to Theberton to launch their boarding cattery and after eight years of planning and preparation Hotel Catifornia opened in June 2016. Suzi is a qualified medical secretary working the NHS and private sector for many years. She has owned cats all her life and has a deep understanding and experience. In 2020 she studied for and passed a diploma on welfare of cats and management of cats in a cattery environment which included topics such as anatomy and physiology, first aid, nutrition and cat psychology. Having worked in the NHS she has a good understanding of the necessities for policies and protocols and this is just as important when looking after other people’s pets. Nick works as a business analyst specialising in data protection. As a very practical man he provides the extra pair of hands during busy periods and helps with maintenance and any repairs. Being self employed, both Nick and Suzi know how a good business should be managed. She does all the paperwork and accounts and they use an excellent software package to manage the bookings and clients. They are very proud of Hotel Catifornia, especially the wonderful reviews about the standard of care they offer their guests. Sharing the household are puss, Midnight Sox, two border collies Barney and Finn (not allowed in the cattery!) and the four hens Lola, Lulu, Lettie and Lottie, whose run backs on to the cattery providing Pen 8 with great cat TV.

Joan Harvey opened Hotel Catifornia

Joan Harvey, our near neighbour, is our key holder. When we opened in 2016 we held a party and Joan, having an excellent sense of occasion and as a local councillor, donned Ascot hat and opened Hotel Catifornia officially complete with ribbon cutting. She has often helped out feeding the guests or manning the phones at busy times.

Nicola helps run the cattery in Theberton

Hi everyone, we are Paul and Mel.

We are very excited to be coming to Hotel Catifornia, looking after your lovely cats whilst Suzi and Nick are away.

We love cats and have owned a number of lovely boys and girls over the years.

In 2022 we sold our successful Country House Hotel in West Wales which was located at the gateway to the Cumbrian Mountains. We were delighted to have won the Good Hotel Guide Dog Friendly Award 2022 for our Hotel. After many years in hospitality, which we thoroughly enjoyed, we decided to launch Dependable Pet Sitting where we look after businesses and individuals’ pets and houses.

We have been all over the UK and recently in Cyprus looking after cats and dogs. Cats we have looked after include long hair, Burmese, Mainecoon, Shorthair, Persian and many regular cats each with their own fabulous personalities.

We love Pet Sitting and getting to know each new cat and looking forward to meeting some of you.
