Arrivals and Departures
Subscription, Prescription and Veterinary Diets
Regrettably, we are unable to provide subscription, prescription or veterinary diets so, if your cat is on a specific diet, please ensure you bring sufficient food with you for the duration of your cat’s stay. Please note that we are unable to provide supermarket brands i.e. Sainsbury’s, etc. We do not feed raw food in the cattery.
Health and Non-collection of Pets
Your cat must be in a fit and healthy condition with no fleas or worms prior to boarding and must have had their vaccinations. In the event your pet shows any sign of illness, fleas or worms, we will attempt to call you, or your emergency contact, immediately to discuss the situation. If necessary, we will take your cat to our vet (you will be liable for all charges). This amount will be payable by you when you collect your cat. There is a charge of £20 to transport your cat to the vet to cover travel costs and time.
Our appointed vets are Henlow Veterinary Centre, 22 Bedford Rd, Lower Stondon, Henlow SG16 6EA. By signing this form you consent to your own veterinary practice releasing any medical history information to our appointed vet.
We accept no liability in the unlikely event your pet becomes ill, lost or dies during their stay. All pets and their belongings are left entirely at the owner’s risk. If pets are not collected within 5 days of the departure date and no communication is received from the owner, a decision to rehome your pet will be made at the cattery owner’s discretion. The full amount will still be payable.
