At the end of 2023, the hotel was extended to include a choice for guests when boarding. Our resorts are large and built to the new Animal Boarding regulations Higher Standard 2018, large and perfect for one but large enough for two guests.We also have five interconnecting suites to allow up to 4 guests from the same family to share.

Rates are charged per day (includes day of arrival and day of departure) as we have an intensive clean between guests, every cat wants to feel as though they are the first guest in that suite.

A choice of rooms in the luxury white resorts ‘MoggieWood Boulevard’ or glamping in ‘Whiskers Wonderland.’

About Us - Breeding Cattery

Welcome to 'Migatobonito' breeding cattery which is registered under both the TICA and GCCF cat associations.
We have breeding since 1989.
Now based in Newton Le Willows in the North West of England UK.

'StanRex' is a TICA registered cattery name to reflect the hobby of Stanley, see below. Stan no longer breeds.

All my breeding Maine Coons are tested for the HCM gene and the presence of the Coronavirus (FCoV).Health is very important to us so please take time to read the frequently asked questions on the visitor page before visiting

The polydactyl cat can be shown in TICA at championship status from May 2015. Our polydactyl maine coon cats and kittens have been shown in the new traits and formed part of the history to allow this breed in to championship.

I hope you enjoy browsing my site and feel free to contact me if you require assistance.

In 2011 we purchased our first polydactyl maine coon, cats with thumbs! 2011 saw our first Poly litter Snowy and Frosty!

All Maine Coon cats are tested for the presence of the HCM (MYBPC3) gene, PK Def & SMA and are all negative.

All my cats (breeding and neutered) are FELV and FIV negative and have been tested in 2009 and all new cats are tested on entry. We are a FELV/FIV negative cattery/household; a certificate is available on visiting. All new cats that come into our home have to go through rigorous testing to make sure they are free from disease before they can mix with the rest of the gang.

We are a small hobby breeder located in Newton Le Willows between Warrington and Merseyside, UK.
And a hobby it is, when done properly and in conjunction with showing; no true breeder will make any money. It is always done for the love of the cats and the breed.

Our first encounter with cats started in 1988 as family allergies prevented cats before. Tinkerbell was our first moggy, of whom we soon realized could not be a female Tinkerbell and he was renamed Tinker. He was soon to be joined by many friends. We started breeding in 1989 with Persians and British Shorthair.

We were first attracted to Maine Coons in 2007 because of their size and placid nature. The Maine Coon is probably the largest domestic cat and they are slow to mature, taking up to 4 years to fully mature. We first saw Ruskita Titan Moon at a show and were amazed by his size and beauty. This led us to search for our own first 'Titan'. The house is never quiet and they like to be with you all of the time. They have a love for water and it can be quite annoying to see wet feet marks all over the house!! Maine Coons make excellent companions and have an extrovert, easygoing nature with an inquisitive personality. They are very affectionate and co-habit well with other pets and children. A fondness of water is one of their traits and another is to find the strangest place to sleep, often in the sink!

Devon Rex cats fasinate us too. We acquired our first Devon in 2003, thanks to 'Bountiful' Devon Rex. They are playful and mischievous and sometimes very naughty. They love to hide and you often find them under your duvet keeping warm. Please view our gallery to see pictures of our cats. The Devon Rex are bred and showed by my son who is very active at shows as a TICA steward and owns Marley the best devon kitten in Western Europe 2009/10, Blue Best Devon Adult 2010/11 and Willow Best Devon kitten 2010/11 and third Devon kitten internationally. Stanley no longer breeds.

All my cats are kept either indoors within the house or in the cattery/runs we have outside. We also have Protectapet fencing to allow them to roam the grounds of the house. It’s safe and extra security to your house. If you mention Migatobonito you will get a discount on purchasing.

Our kittens are born upstairs in a bedroom or in a kitten room where they stay until we feel they may come down to the playroom. They are integrated into a 'busy' family life once they are weaned from mum.

All my kittens are sold to indoor homes only, when they are fully vaccinated, micropchipped , neutered and come with a kitten agreement, 4 weeks insurance, kitten advice, pedigree and registration with TICA (GCCF by request only.) All kittens will have received at least three vet checks before going to their new homes. Your kitten will leave with food and litter that we use.
