Cat Friendly Clinic

Our cat clinic in Billund is certified as Cat Friendly.

We are, of course, specialists in cats and offer you the best treatment for your cat – whether it is an operation, dental examination, vaccination or simply a health check.

Meet Tommy – your local cat vet here.

Enjoy the cats outside

Bring the kids and enjoy your lunch in our cozy courtyard.

We have put up a table/bench set in the courtyard next to the beautiful pavilion, so it is possible to sit and look at the playful and cute cats while you eat.

Please remember to leave the place clean, neat and nice for the next visitors. 

VERY IMPORTANT: Whilst our cats love meeting new people, it is really important that you do not give them anything to eat during your visit (no matter how hard they try to convince you!)

Foster families are wanted

Our foster families take care of both the cat mother and kittens until they are 12 weeks old.

The tiny kittens are some of the cutest things out there. They are also vulnerable and require care to get used to being part of a family. Often the kittens’ mother is with the foster family to ensure the kittens have the best start in life.

It is a unique experience to be a foster family for one or more kittens, because it is here that the foundation is formed for their chances of being adopted by a loving family.

Please contact us if you would like to be a foster family for cats and kittens and to learn more about what this could involve.


Do you want to be a volunteer?

Would you like to help us with the cats as a volunteer?

We need you to take care of all the cute cats – from cleaning their rooms to helping to socialise the cats. It is important that you love spending time interacting with cats and are conscientious. We will teach you the rest…

Please contact us for more information.

Come and meet us

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2018. Then we moved closer to home, where I have worked at various clinics and hospitals in Jutland. Since 1st January 2022, I have been manager at Kattens Værn in Billund and, together with a fantastic team, have got a professionally strong cat shelter up and running. In the Autumn of 2022, my husband and I moved out to our small country property by Ølgod, which houses my husband and I, our daughters, dog, cats and, hopefully, soon also chickens!

I trained as a zookeeper in 2005 and have worked in zoos in Denmark, England and Scotland.
I has been involved since the shelter started in 2022. I think the work with stray cats is very meaningful, and aim for the cats to have the best possible conditions and care while they live with us, and await a new life with a loving family.

I trained as a zookeeper in 2010 and have since then worked in this field in Spain, Norway and Denmark.
I started as a volunteer at Kattens Værn in Billund, which has since become a permanent position as a animal caretaker. It was a bit of a change to go from the working with animals in a zoo to a cat shelter. I really enjoy my work and it makes good sense in relation to finding the right family for the cats.
