Axholme Cattery at Crowle in Lincolnshire is under new ownership following the retirement of previous owners Jeanette and Gary Abraham.
Jeremy and Diane Mitchell have acquired the cattery, which sits on a site of 1.1 acres and is licensed for 40 cats.
The couple have been running a small kennel and cattery, as well as a pet travel business, in West Sussex for the last 10 years, following a decade in Florida running pet shops and dog grooming salons.
Jeremy said: “Axholme Cattery has a great reputation and we’re thrilled to have found the perfect home and business which will allow us to move back up north and continue our passion for pets.
“Our new business is called Walkers and Sitters and the cattery is very much at the heart of this. As well as looking after cats, we will be adding dog walking and dog behaviour consultations to the services on offer.
“Our aim is to take the cattery from a three-star licence to five-stars within our first year, making it even more of a ‘des-res’ for felines. We’re delighted that our dream of moving our pet business back to the north has become a reality.”
Axholme Cattery was sold by commercial property estate agent Ernest Wilson.
