Cat Vaccination & Health Requirements

Vaccination & Health Requirements


All cats boarding with us must have a current Vaccination Certificate or Pet Passport, valid for the duration of their stay. Vaccination Certificates/Pet Passports must be produced on arrival, and we are required to hold these on the premises for the duration of your cat's stay at the cattery. 

Vaccinations offer protection against Herpesvirus, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia, and are commonly known as cat flu.

Kitten Vaccinations and Worming

Kittens are vaccinated once every three to four weeks until they reach 16 weeks of age or older. However, to avoid over-vaccination, most veterinarians will recommend starting the vaccine at 8 weeks of age, followed by boosters at 12 weeks and 16 weeks old. Rabies is the other core kitten vaccination. After this, your cat should have a check-up and vaccination once a year to ensure that the immunity is maintained.

Kittens also need to be wormed every two weeks until twelve weeks of age, then monthly until six months of age, then every three months for life.

Fleas and Worms

Regular flea and worm treatment should also be part of your pets regular health program. We require that all cats staying with us must have had flea and worm treatment, given not less than 7 days or longer than 5 weeks, prior to check-in.

Neutered or Spayed Cats Only

With the exception of kittens under the age of 6 months, all cats must be neutered or spayed.
