Unless otherwise advised and certified by your veterinary surgeon, cats boarded must normally have an up-to-date veterinary certificate showing that they have received immunisation against Feline Enteritis and Feline Influenza.

However, because recent research has shown that certain cancers can be caused by too frequent immunisation, cats over 5 years old who have had regular injections, will require only evidence of immunisation within the previous 3 years.

Although not essential for boarding purposes, immunisation against Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and against Feline Leukaemia Virus FELV is always advisable whether a cat is to be boarded or not. 


Every cat pen is rigorously disinfected before a cat arrives and the freshly washed bed linen provided, namely a Mothercare cot duvet, blanket and heater cover, are treated with a safe veterinary preparation as a precaution against fleas and mites.
