About Us

Established in 1990, Sleepy Haven Cattery is a family-owned and operated cattery in the Hills District.

Family-owned and run cat boarding


Located on eight acres of scenic and peaceful bushland in the Hills District north-west of Sydney, Sleepy Haven is a perfect home away from home for your cat.

Sleepy Haven is family owned and run by Ruth Lynch since 1990, who brings a passion and love for cats with four cats of her own:

DUCHESS the baby – a Tortoiseshell.

OBI  ‘the Site Manager’ – he lives in the cattery and strolls around and ‘chats’ to all the boarders!

TOBY a Himalayan – quiet, gentle and very loving.

ZOE a Ragdoll – a rescue cat – a complete princess, but we love her to bits!

(These cats run the Lynch household!)

Run by cat lovers!

Well-respected, friendly and welcoming, Ruth is committed to ensuring your cat enjoys the best care possible and treats all cats as if they were her own.

Knowing that each cat has its own unique personality, Ruth and her staff provide a relaxing environment, personalised care and plenty of tender love and care!
