To minimise delay when bringing your cat for their stay…

  • Call Reception, at least 2 days prior to your date of arrival, for a link to our Booking system to pay online. (You can also pay over the ‘phone if preferred).
  • Email a photo of the Vaccination Card if we don’t hold up to date records.
  • Please also advise of the flea/worming products used and when last administered.
  • Advise of any changes in the food you normally feed your cat, any medication required etc.
