The Cattery business…
The cattery sits within a plot of 4,000m2 of rustic land (an acre) which is fully fenced and there is a secure gated entrance to the property.
Currently, the main focus of the business is cats but on occasion, dogs are accepted and with a fully fenced plot, this could be extended.
The business would certainly suit a couple or family who are looking to enjoy a relaxed life in this popular part of Spain whilst generating a good level of income without having to leave the house!
There is also scope to increase business if wanted – there is the potential to incorporate kennels so that dogs can be accepted as well as cats.
The existing business attracts clients from the local area through a range of advertising – there is no website or Facebook page which again could be used to increase business.
Cat guests are given a “home from home” welcome – therefore there is many repeat guests and this bodes well for future business.
