Admission

Admissions
Some cats get very stressed when put into a cat carrier then put into a car….that then moves! By the time they arrive at the cattery, their stress levels are already high. Please understand that this is normal and it usually takes your cat 24 hours to settle into the cattery and learn that they are safe.

Some cats on the other hand are cool as cucumbers and ready to explore. Whatever behaviour your cat shows, know that it is a normal part of them dealing with change. It doesn’t mean they will behave like that their entire stay! Within 24 – 48 hours, most cats are relaxed and eating and drinking as normal. If they aren’t, a Feliway diffuser can be used to help them settle.

It can be helpful to some cats if they have something from home that is familiar so feel free to bring in an item of clothing or their favourite bed or blanket (please don’t bring in anything breakable).

On admission, please allow 15 minutes to ensure all the paperwork is filled in, payment is made and you have time to settle in your cat. We don’t like to rush the process of settling in your cat so if you’ll be rushing for flights, please consider bringing them in, the day before, when you’ll have more time.

General admission information

Flea Control
Fleas are not welcome in our cattery! A quality flea control (Frontline, Comfortis, Revolution, Advantage or Advocate) should be applied at least 2 days prior to your cats stay to ensure they do not bring fleas into the cattery. If we see fleas on your cat, we will administer a Comfortis flea tablet which will be payable when you collect your cat.

Tapeworm
Tapeworm is the most common of all the intestinal worms. Fleas carry tapeworm and when the cat grooms themselves and they ingest (swallow) a flea, the flea transmits the tapeworm. A lot of owners don’t know their cat has tapeworm and don’t often inspect their poo. We’re expects at noticing tapeworm though! If we see tapeworm in your cat’s poo, we will administer a tapeworm tablet to get rid of them. The tablets are only around $4.00 and is payable when you collect your cat.

Intestinal worming tablets should be administered to your cat every three months (if over the age of 6 months) to keep them worm free.
