We offer a good range of  morning reception appointments, 6 days a week (excluding Sunday) as we know from many years of experience that morning arrivals and departures are the easiest, least stressful and safest option for our customers, our four legged guests and our staff . The quiet and peaceful atmosphere we provide for our guests is achieved by limiting our times of movement of other cats in and out.

As we normally have the cats prepared and “ready to go” at the time of departure, you are welcome to elect  a friend or family member to collect on your behalf, on presentation of suitable ID.

A personal appointment time (between 08.30 and 10.45) is allocated at the time of booking (but may be amended up to 24 hours in advance, subject to availability) and covers a 15 minute window. It is always appreciated when arrival is timed for the start of the appointment slot.
