Health & Nutrition

We stock a wide variety of menu choices and will cater to your cat’s needs. Whichever food they are used to we will endeavour to provide! Our preference is for high quality food such as Applaws, James Wellbeloved, Hills and Royal Canin although we do cater for the majority of diets.

Please note that we are unable to cater for veterinary diets so in these instances, you will need to bring your cat’s food with you.

We can offer a choice of freshly cooked fish or chicken each day for a small additional charge.

Your cat will have time spent with them every day with a basic groom, health check and plenty of attention. All to ensure they enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Cleaning and Health

All cats are assessed for signs of illness upon entry. If your cat is showing signs of any illness, entry may be refused at the cattery owner’s discretion. This is to ensure the safety and well-being of all the cats in our care.

Our cleaning regime is very strict to ensure the safety of your cats during their stay at The Bluecat. All disinfectants used are safe for the cats, safe for the environment, remain active once applied and are fully approved by the regulatory bodies.


It is essential that your cat’s flea and worming treatments are up to date before boarding. Please ensure you use reputable products provided by your vet. The over the counter treatments often do not work and do not provide adequate protection. We will check your cat for the presence of fleas upon arrival and reserve the right not to board them in order to protect the other cats in our care.

Vaccinations and What is Cat Flu?

For all cats, including those entering a cattery, it is essential that they have received vaccines for the ‘core’ infectious agents — these are:-

❖ Feline panleukopenia virus (FPV)
❖ Feline herpesvirus (FHV), and
❖ Feline calicivirus (FCV)

“Cat Flu’” is a general term used to describe a common set of symptoms of the upper respiratory tract. Some of these symptoms include sneezing, nasal discharge, loss of appetite and eye discharge. Cat flu is caused by several pathogens, such as Feline herpes virus (FHV), feline calicivirus (FCV), Feline Reovirus, Bordetella Bronchiseptica & Feline Chlamydophila.

Cat flu can be spread via direct contact such as from a sick or carrier cat via eye, nasal & mouth discharge. Our chalets are designed with full height sneeze barriers to prevent direct contamination. It can also spread via indirect contact such as from contaminated food bowls, bedding etc. All bowls and bedding provided are treated with disinfectant before use to minimise any risk. To give your cat protection against cat flu a regular vaccination is required. All boarders coming to stay with us must have had their latest vaccinations.

Vaccination will provide effective protection in the majority of animals but there is no 100% guarantee. All possible hygiene, health and safety procedures are carried out here at The Bluecat Cattery. Please contact your local veterinary clinic for further information.
