Please ensure you transport your cat in a secure carrier.

Vaccination checks

Please ensure you bring your up-to-date certificates with you as we cannot admit your cat into the main cattery building until we see it.
See full vaccination requirements.

Inside the cattery

You are welcome to come into the cattery to see your cat in. Once inside the run we can let your cat out of its basket. Don't be worried if it doesn't immediately appear - some need a little time.  Please remember to try and remain calm, if you are stressed your cat will pick up on it and may get distressed.

We can provide all that is needed for the stay but you are welcome to bring beds and toys to help settle your cat. If your cat needs specific grooming equipment please bring in your own.

We will check that your cat knows where the cat flap is and if he or she is unfamiliar with one will prop it open.

After your cat has settled in

We will go back to reception to double check we have all your details correct. Especially important are to:

  1. Ensure that our veterinary authorisation form is up to date in case your cat is sick when staying with us. It is essential that you mention any previous illnesses, especially things such as cat flu, eye infections, cystitis and blood in faeces. This means that we can be extra vigilant and also may avoid an unnecessary trip to the vets.
  2. Confirm when your cat had its last flea and worm treatment and what brand you use.
  3. Check your emergency contact details.
  4. Confirm your collection date and time.

On collection we will take you down to the run toy see your cat and then assist you with getting them back in to their carrier, ready to go home.


We provide a range of food (food stocked list) and you are welcome to bring in a few treats that we will ensure are fed to your cat. If you bring any dry food please supply it in an airtight container and provide a measure if required.

Finally we hope your cat has a good holiday with us and wants to come again.
