Please ensure your cat is transported in a safe and secure carrier, in good condition, designed for transportation of cats.
We will care for your cat according to the highest levels of care as established by the Feline Advisory Bureau and you accept that your cat is boarded with us at your own risk.
We will need to see proof of current vaccinations for feline flu and enteritis, which must be provided at check-in.
We reserve the right to not accommodate any cat showing signs of ill health pending advice from a Veterinary Surgeon. We trust you will appreciate that this is essential in order to safeguard the health of all cats staying with us.
If you will not be collecting your cat yourself, please ensure that the person you send will be able to handle your cat safely.
For the welfare of our guests we reserve the right to re-home any cat not collected within fifteen days of their scheduled departure date if, after making reasonable efforts, we have not been able to agree suitable arrangements with the owner and/or emergency contact.
