Cats must be brought to and from the cattery in a secure carrier which must not be opened until cat is in their allocated apartment. We are happy to assist in carrying cat carriers but we cannot accept any responsibility for faulty carriers or accidents in transportation.
HC will be authorised to speak to the vet about a cat whilst it is boarding at HC and thereby be able to sanction any action recommended as immediately necessary by the vet if the owner cannot be contacted. Emergency contacts should be able to help locate the owner.
HC use Crown Vets. If pertinent they will try to speak to cat’s own vet prior to any treatment. The vet will be consulted should HC experience any difficulty in giving medication. If a decision is taken to transfer boarding to HC’s vets this will be at owner’s cost.
HC has boarding insurance cover, limited only by the terms set by the insurer. Pre-existing conditions, known or unknown, are not covered. Any concerns will be notified to HC within 24 hours of departure.
A person, other than the owner, collecting a cat must carry identification that matches the name given by the owner to HC
A pet not collected and with no communication with HC, 7 days after the expected departure date, will be considered abandoned. Costs until the cat is rehomed, will be the responsibility of the owner.
Cats from one household booked to share an apartment may be separated, at the owner’s cost, if cats are, in HC’s opinion, unable to share.
Every measure will be taken to ensure the safekeeping of a cat, but it must be accepted that in boarding cats in unfamiliar surroundings accidents, illness or other unforeseen incidents, beyond HC’s control may occur on an extremely rare occasion.
Terms and conditions on HCs website supersede those printed elsewhere and those current at the start of boarding will apply.
