We also recommend that cats are vaccinated against Feline Leukaemia Virus. Primary vaccination must not have been administered any less than fourteen days prior to boarding in order to protect our other residents from possible infection. There will be no exceptions to this rule. Please note that only vaccinated kittens can be accepted.
Fleas & Worms
We request that all cats are treated against flea infestation "TWO WEEKS BEFORE" their arrival. Fleas spread rapidly among a cat population and can be easily detected by combing the cat and by small black deposits on their bedding. All cats will be inspected on arrival. The management reserve the right to apply flea treatment to any resident cat found to have flea infestation on arrival or if the flea treatments are not up to date. The cost of treatment will be charged to the owner. Please note that flea collars are not considered adequate protection. Flea Treatment - Stronghold, charged £10 per dose.

Any cat over the age of seven months, who is not neutered/spayed, cannot be accepted for boarding, as they could present an infection hazard to other resident cats.
Meals are served at 08:00 and 17:00. Food will be left available for cats at all times unless the owner requests otherwise. Please discuss any particular requirements at the time of booking. We provide a wide variety of dry and wet food but cannot hold supplies of every brand/ type. Please check with us before boarding that we have the foods preferred by your cat. We regret that we are unable to provide any special prescription diets, and these will have to be provided by the owner. We prefer all cats to remain on their usual diet during their stay to reduce stress or digestive upset. Fresh water is available to all cats at all times.
We are happy to administer any medication, including injections, which have been prescribed by a vet, provided full and clear instructions are left by the owner and a consent form is signed.

All cats will be inspected on arrival, but we reserve the right to refuse admission to any cat showing any signs of ill health pending advice from our veterinary surgeon. This is essential in order to protect and safeguard the health of other resident cats. Veterinary services will be arranged should this be necessary during your cat’s stay. If any client prefers their cat to be seen by their usual vet, please discuss this with us prior to arrival. There will be an extra charge for transportation to the vet of £10 per visit. Plus the transportation fees noted above under “Collection & Delivery Service”.
