  • A £25.00 deposit is required at time of booking which is refundable if cancellation is made 21 days prior to start of stay. For long term stays, interim payments are required.


  • Fees are charged at a daily rate and include the days of arrival and departure. This allows for essential cleaning and hygiene preparation.  Where cats are brought in late or collected early, fees will still be charged for a full days boarding. As you will appreciate, once we have taken your booking we must hold the accommodation for you for the dates specified.
  • There is a minimum fee, equivalent to three days boarding, with the exception of Christmas, New Year, and Easter which incurs a minimum fee, equivalent to five days boarding.
  • Unauthorised overstays will be charged at twice the daily rate.

  • All cats will be examined on arrival and are accepted into our care on the understanding that they are in good health and that any health problems are communicated to us prior to admittance, so that we may make an informed decision as to the suitability of the cat for boarding.  We reserve the right to refuse admission to any cat appearing to be unwell or thought to be suffering from any illness or infectious disease.
  • If your cat has an existing medical condition, any medication or special dietary needs, this must be declared or supplied with clear written instructions.  We are happy to administer medications at no extra charge. However, we do not offer full nursing facilities. 
  • All cats must be inoculated against Feline Enteritis and Cat Flu. We regret that no cat can be accepted without an up-to-date vaccination certificate. Vaccines must have been given at least one week prior to boarding.

  • All cats must be registered with a vet, if your cat becomes unwell, then we will try to consult with your cat’s vet having first attempted to contact you.  Should we need to transport your cat to a veterinary practice then all transport and veterinary fees may be the responsibility of the owner.  In all cases we will act in the best interest of the cat with respect to its health and freedom from suffering and we will follow the advice of a veterinary surgeon on such matters. If your vet is outside of a 5 mile radius of the cattery we reserve the right to take the cat to our own vet.
  • Please inform us if your cat has any unusual habits or behaviours that could be mistaken for an illness.
  • All cats are covered by our comprehensive insurance policy at no extra charge. Please note: long term or pre-existing conditions are not covered.
  • Each cat receives individual attention daily for play, cuddles and basic brushing. We believe the cats well being is paramount and that this individual attention helps the cat to settle and bond with us. Please note that we are not professional groomers.
  Personal Possessions
  • All personal possessions must be clearly marked with your name.  However, should these items become soiled, then for the sake of hygiene we reserve the right to wash these items and can take no responsibility for damage caused by the antibacterial agents used to maintain cleanliness. We cannot accept toys that could prove a health risk to your pet, for example dangly toys with string. 
  • Please note we do not recommend the use of cardboard baskets and further recommend that the security of all clasps and locks are checked before departing for the cattery. There is sufficient space within the suites to house average sized single carriers.
  • Any cat left uncollected within 14 days of the date due to leave the cattery without communication from the owner or their representative will be classified as abandoned and we reserve the right to report and hand over your cat to an animal re-homing establishment.
