Cattery FAQ's

What proof do we need of my cat's vaccination?

Your vet will provide you with a vaccination certificate. Inside it will show the date of vaccination along with a sticky label off the vaccine bottle and a date of its next annual booster. On the day of arrival to our cattery bring with you your cat vaccination certificate.

Why are cat vaccinations so important?

When you cats comes into a cattery there will be lots of other cats. Some cats can carry the cat flu virus, which becomes airborne and your cat may contract it this way. The same can apply by your cat brushing against the next-door neighbours cat. Cat flu can be very nasty for cats so it's important that they're protected for their well-being.

My cats never been vaccinated - what do I do?

Quite simply go to a vet and get your cat booked in. The most important vaccination for when your cats goes into a cattery is the Cat Flu.

What is the vaccination procedure?

When your cats goes to the vets for its first cat flu vaccinations it will have:

  • Its first jab on day one
  • 3 weeks later your cat will go back for its final jab known as the booster
  • 2 weeks after its booster jab is when your cat is ready to go into a cattery because this is when its immune system is fully protected.
  • 12 months later from the date of your last cats vaccination you need to go back to the vets for its annual injection.

What if my cat's vaccination dates have lapsed?

If your cats vaccination dates have lapsed by a few weeks don't worry just go back to the vets for its annual booster. If its lapse by a few months you need to consult your vets as probably your cat will need to start all over gain as explained above.

What food do you provide?

We have for the last two years or so provided one of the best brands of food on the market, Hills Science Plan, purely for its nutritional qualities. It's a dry food and most cats like it, however if your cat prefers not to eat this then we will provide a range of other food as well as wet meats from well known brands. Or if you prefer, you can bring in your own food.

Can I pick up my animals on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon?

After our opening hours we like to keep our Saturday afternoon and the majority of Sundays for our family as we are open to the public virtually all year round. If you are back off your holidays in weekend afternoons then please collect your animals either on a Sunday or a Monday morning. Don't worry it wont cost you anymore as our daily boarding fees kick in at 10:00am everyday. E.g. you get back on Saturday after 1:00pm then you can collect on a Sunday morning between 9:00 & 10:00am. You will pay up to and including the Saturday before. Please refer to our terms and conditions for further details.

What do I need to bring?

Apart from bringing in your cat and vaccination certificate you really don't need to bring anything else in. We provide all the bedding, dirt trays, feeding/water bowls and a few toys. However, if you prefer to bring in your cat's favourite blanket or toy then that's absolutely fine.
