We are also happy to medicate any cats that need it, i.e. diabetic cats, as we have a trained veterinary care nurse.

Terms and conditions
We only accept cats at ‘The Cat´s Whiskers’ with up to date vaccinations for Feline Enteritis and Feline Calicivirus (Cat Flu), and that have been treated for flea and worm parasites. We recommend a minimum time between receiving a booster/inoculation and entry into the cattery of 14 days. This will allow any adverse reactions to the drugs to clear, and will protect your cat properly. You must bring your cats’ current vaccination certificate with you.
Any cat suffering or suspected of suffering from any infectious illness or disease during their stay with us, will be moved to our isolation facility, for both their and our other guest’s safety, pending advice from a veterinary Surgeon.
In the unlikely event that your cat does become unwell, we will do whatever is required to ensure the best care for your pet. In the first instance we will talk to your vet, they will have all the necessary notes and history for your cats, or in the case of an emergency we will contact our nearest vet. We do have a good relationship with all the local vets; however treatment and care charges are the responsibility of you the cats’ owner.
We take great care to ensure that we remain free of fleas and worms so your cat does not contract them while staying with us. If we find that a cat in our care has either we will again speak to your vet, and treat the cat accordingly. This may incur a charge.
Before your cats stay you will be required to complete two forms; the booking form, this gives us all your details, the booking dates, your cats’ details, what they like to eat, your vets details, and emergency contact information while you are away. The second is the authorisation for veterinary treatment. This will be kept on record by us for any future stays your cats may have. You must also bring with you your current cats’ vaccination certificate.
