Information about your cat


Only cats that are up to date with their yearly vaccinations against cat flu and feline enteritis can be boarded. If your vaccinations are overdue please call us for advice.  

You must leave two weeks before boarding your cat after a vaccination booster.  Kittens or cats who have to restart their vaccination programme can be boarded 4 weeks after their second round of vaccinations. 


All cats over 6 months old must be neutered before boarding.

Health issues

Cats showing signs of ill health on arrival will be refused admission pending advice from the vet. This is essential to protect the health of all cats staying with us.

Sorry, we are unable to board diabetic cats.

All cats boarding are covered by our veterinary insurance policy. We are able to board cats with on-going medical conditions (providing that they are not contagious). There is a small charge for administering medication and any necessary vet's trips in these cases.

Fleas and worms

We treat this very seriously, so your cat should be up to date on treatments when entering the cattery. If your cat does not meet our requirements for this we reserve the right to treat your cat with a veterinary product and you will be charged for this.  Depending on the brand instructions, flea treatments should be every 1-3 months and worm treatments 3-6 months.  We advise clients to use veterinary recommended products.  Often ‘off the shelf’ type supermarket treatments are NOT sufficient for boarding at the cattery as they may not be as effective.
