Ferndown Cattery

Purrfect care for your cat

Cattery Boarding Conditions

  1. A current vaccination certificate must be produced for all cats upon arrival. No cat will be accepted without an up to date certificate for protection against Infectious enteritis and feline Influenza (Cat Flu).

  2. Whilst cats boarding at The Ferndown Cattery receive every care and attention, they are boarded entirely at the risk of the owner. Should any cat fall ill whilst being boarded we will contact you own veterinary surgeon and act upon his advice and the expenses incurred will be met by the owner of the cat. However we do have veterinary insurance up to £100 to cover all cats for anything where the cause is attributed entirely to the cattery, this does not cover any on-going treatment or prior illnesses.

  3. A full days board is charged for the days of arrival and departure to allow for essential disinfection and preparation of chalets.
  4. Delivery and collection outside normal hours must be prearranged and may be subject to an extra charge.

  5. In the event of cats being removed before the end of the period booked, we will charge 2 days additional boarding fees.

  6. If any boarder is not collected within 14 days of the stated departure date with no communication from the owner, and where it is not possible to contact any other person responsible for the cat/s, the proprietors reserve the right to dispose of the animals in an appropriate manner.

  7. If any cat boarded is found to have an infestation of fleas or worms, we will treat the cat at the owner's expense.

  8. We request that cat collars are removed, prior to your cat arriving for it's stay, any cat wearing a collar will have it removed for the for safety reasons.

  9. Any cat suffering from, or suspected to be suffering from, any infectious disease can not be accepted. All cats will be examined on arrival and the proprietor reserves the right to refuse admission to any cat showing signs of ill health, pending advice from a veterinary surgeon. Owners will appreciate that this is essential in order to safeguard the health of all cats boarded. 

  10. We regret that male cats over the age of seven months, which have not been neutered, cannot be accepted for boarding.
