  • Vaccination certificates will be inspected at every visit and held for the duration of the stay. Owners must ensure that the vaccinations have had sufficient time to provide immunity before their boarding. Boosters need to be given a minimum of 2 weeks before the arrival date. 
  • We take great care to ensure that we remain free from fleas and worms, so your cat does not contract them while staying with us, therefore can you please administer flea and worm treatments at least 48 hours prior to boarding.

  • In the event your pet shows signs of illness, we will immediately place them in a quarantine area, separated from other cats to stop the spread of illness. We will contact you or your emergency contact immediately to discuss the situation & if necessary seek advice from the veterinarian and act on their instruction. 
  • If we are unable to reach you or your emergency contact, we feel your pet needs to be seen, we will take your pet to see the veterinarian.
