Directions to Cats Pajamas Cattery

Coming off the ferry, get into the right lane, so that you may drive straight through the intersection, up the hill. At the crest of the hill take the right fork nearest the school, Mt. Gardner Rd. Follow Mt. Gardner Rd for about 3.2 km until you come to Woods Rd. Take this right fork, for about 1/2 a city block distance, and then take another right up Smith Rd. Follow to the end, where you turn right onto Fernie Rd. Proceed slowly with caution on this very bumpy narrow road! At the crest of the hill you will see the Cats Pajamas Cattery sign, stay to the right again, driving slowly up our driveway. Our dog Virgil will do his best to welcome you with gentle kisses on your hand. (It usually takes 7 - 10 minutes from the ferry).
