It's best if you transport your cat(s) to and from the cattery using a suitable carrier. We may ask you leave your carrier carrier for the duration of their stay, just in case we have to evacuate the building in the unlikely event of an emergency. In this respect you may wish to label your carrier beforehand to avoid any confusion upon collection!

Please advise us in advance of any medical or behavioural problems that your cat may have.

All cats must be fleaed and wormed within 2 weeks prior to arrival. We can do this for you on your arrival day if you choose not to do this prior to arrival.

All cats that stay with us are insured for veterinary cover for the duration of they stay (excess may apply). Claims are subject to application and assessment.

Should your cat become ill while you are away, veterinary assistance will be provided by Voy Vets of Burnside. Call out fees may apply, if not a cattery fee of £5.00 per trip to the vet applies.
