All catteries must be inspected regularly to ensure that DEFRA regulations and standards are being met, a licence is then granted with a star rating. The Kitz has received a five star rating, this is the highest rating and which we are very pleased and proud to have achieved this. We ensure that these high standards and regulations are met on a daily basis.



Please read carefully before bringing your cat to board at The Kitz. By signing the boarding contract, you are giving consent to the Terms & Conditions.  Once you have collected your cat and signed the return, you are still bound by certain aspects of these terms and conditions.


Cats will not be accepted for boarding without a VALID and UP TO DATE vaccination for cat flu and enteritis. All cats must be vaccinated annually with the booster vaccination administered no longer than 15 months from the previous vaccination. An up to date vaccination certificate must be produced prior to admittance to the cattery.

Records showing dates of last worming and flea treatments are to be provided also. This will be recorded on The Kitz customer file which is kept with vaccination card when boarding.  Should your cat develop either condition during their stay, we reserve the right to treat including the administration of medication.

Vaccination cards will be retained at The Kitz as evidence of vaccination for the duration of the boarding period and returned to the customer at the end of the booking.  These cards must be provided by recognised feline care providers.
