It is our strict policy that only fully vaccinated cats are eligible for boarding at Little Glen Cattery. It will be necessary for your cat(s) to be vaccinated against feline enteritis and upper respiratory infections (cat flu), and up-to-date vaccination certificates will need to be seen on arrival. Cats older than seven months must be neutered or spayed.
If your cat has never been vaccinated, or the annual booster is out of date, they will need to have a full course of vaccinations. It will take a period of four weeks and one day from the administering of the first required injection to when your cat is safely covered before boarding is available. This period will be longer if the leukaemia vaccination is required as well.
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 the cats boarded.
It is also appreciated that owners ensure that their cat is regularly treated against fleas and worms. For fleas, treatment usually occurs every month or every six months for veterinary-injected treatments. Worm treatments usually take place every three to six months. The best and most effective Flea and Worm treatments are available from your veterinary surgeon.
Owners with cats that never go out sometimes feel it is not necessary to protect their cats, however this is not the case as fleas can easily be transferred inadvertently by owners when entering the house, from the environment outside. Please ensure your cat is protected.
If a cat comes into the cattery with fleas or worms, the cat will be treated and the cost recouped from the owner.
