Regulations stipulate that all cats boarding in a cattery must have a valid certificate for cat flu (feline herpesvirus) and feline calcivirus and feline enteritis (feline panleukopenia virus). Some vets also use additional vaccinations against feline chlamydiosis and feline leukaemia virus. These additional vaccinations are not essential for cattery boarding and the cats will not have any contact with each other during their stay. A valid current vaccination certificate must be produced at time of arrival.
Vaccinations should have been done at least 14 days before arrival at the cattery. If they are done less than a week there is a risk that your cat’s immunity levels may be low and they may not be fully protected against infection.
We regret that we will not accept any cat into the cattery if they have never been vaccinated. The vaccination certificate will be retained by Barn View Cattery during the boarding period.
In addition to your vaccination certificate we ask that your cat must be treated against worms and fleas prior to boarding. This is to help keep our facilities hygienic and clean for all of our guests. If any guest is found to have worms or fleas, we will contact you or your nominated contacts to arrange a treatment from your vet at the owners cost.
We are happy to administer any medication, including injections, which have been prescribed by a vet, provided full and clear instructions are left by the owner. There will be an extra charge of £1.00 per day for the administration of medication. If your cat(s) are on medication it is the owners responsibility to ensure that sufficient medication is brought for the duration of their stay.
Your vets details must be supplied at the time of booking, we will confirm this information at arrival. Should your cat require veterinary attention during their stay with us we will make every effort to consult with your own vet. However, if their need is urgent, if your vet is an unreasonable distance away, if they do not offer a 24hr out of hours service, or for any other unforeseeable reason we reserve the right to consult our own veterinary practice. Charges for veterinary consultation & treatment will be passed to the owner.
We can only accept neutered cats to board.
All cats ( male or female ) over the age of 6 months, who are not neutered, cannot be accepted for boarding, as they could present an infection hazard and/or disruption to other resident cats. Please speak with a member of the team if you have any questions on this matter.
Only cats from the same household can share the same family unit. If behaviour between the cats sharing a family pen is observed to be causing unnecessary stress to each party, we will contact you or your allocated contacts and request we separate where possible. This will incur an extra charge for a separate pen at the cost of the owner.
You are responsible for transporting your cat in a suitable safe and secure carrier.
Bedding and personal items: We are able to provide beds for cats. Should you wish to bring you own bedding this must be in a clean condition. Any bedding, toys and other comfort items are all left at your own risk.
All cats must be dropped off and collected during our normal opening hours.
Any medicines/prescription food must be supplied by the owner at time of boarding.
Your cats photo maybe used for social media/ our website, if you do not wish us to use their image please contact us.
A condition of boarding is that your cat is in a fit and healthy condition. Any cat showing signs of ill health may be refused admission, to safeguard the health of all boarding cats.
Whilst every care and precaution is taken to safeguard the health and wellbeing of all cats, they are boarded entirely at the owner’s own risk. If any animal is not collected within 7 days of the stated departure date and no communication received either from the owner or nominated contact, we reserve the right to re-home them.
