Our charges are:

£12.50 per day + VAT for one cat

We do offer a local collection/delivery service - a small charge is made for this based on your location. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

If you collect your cat before the end of the booked period, the full cost of the original booked stay will still apply.

Should you find it necessary to cancel your booking with us, please be courteous enough to let us know this as soon as possible in order that we can help our wait listed clients. We are a small, family run cattery offering a personal and individual service suited to your needs and we appreciate your consideration.

What to Bring

Prescription and Veterinary Diets

We are unable to provide prescription or veterinary diets, so if your cat is on a specific diet, please ensure that you bring sufficient food with you for the duration of your cat’s stay with us.

Health and Non-collection of Pets

Your cat must be in a fit and healthy condition with no fleas or worms prior to boarding and must have had their vaccinations. In the event your pet shows any sign of illness, fleas or worms, we will attempt to call you or your emergency contact immediately to discuss the situation. If necessary, we will take your cat to our vet (you will be liable for all charges). This amount will be payable by you when you collect your cat. There is a charge of £20 to transport your cat to the vet to cover travel costs and time. Our appointed vets are:  Acorn House Veterinary Hospital, Linnet Way, Bedford MK41 7HN. 01234 261839.

By signing this form you consent to your own veterinary practice releasing any medical history information to our appointed vet.

We accept no liability in the unlikely even your pet becomes ill, lost or dies during their stay. All pets and their belongings are left entirely at the owner’s risk. If pets are not collected within 5 days of the departure date and no communication is received from the owner, a decision to rehome your pet will be made at the cattery owner’s discretion. The full amount will still be payable.
