  3. Please ensure that all bedding, toys etc brought in with your cat are clean, and so free of flea eggs.

  4. Any alteration to arrival or collection dates are subject to availability of chalets.

  5. Booked arrival and collection dates / times will be confirmed by text no less than two-weeks prior to the arrival date, after which we will be unable to alter bookings.

  11. No cat can be accepted into the cattery without an Emergency UK contact name, address and telephone number. In the event of being unable to contact the owners, the contact will be consulted over any issues arising whilst the cat is in the cattery. Owners must make the contact aware of this responsibility.

  12. Cats can only be accepted on condition they have been fully vaccinated within the last 12 months and not less than four weeks prior to boarding. The certificates must be seen by us before any cat can enter the cattery.

  18. Owners are encouraged to bring an item of clean bedding for their cat, as it will smell of home and will help the cat settle.

It is the owner’s responsibility to notify anyone collecting cat(s) on their behalf of this condition.

  19. Cats can only be entered or collected from the cattery within our opening hours. Owners missing an opening period should ring Emma (07726 553 779) to arrange collection at the next slot.
