Here at Dick Whittingtons our guests come first.
During the winter and cold weather spells our indoor accommodation has the benefit of heating, while our outdoor chalets have individual temperature controlled heat pads to keep our guests snug and warm.
Our outdoor accommodation blocks can accommodate a single cat or a family of up to eight. We also offer lower outdoor accommodation blocks for older guests who may not be quite so energetic but don't like to be indoors.
We make every effort to keep our guests diet the same or similar to their home diet so as not to cause too much stress. We stock a wide range of dry complete biscuit foods, wet tins and sachets, from kitten to senior, with a variety of flavours for those who don't like just fish! Our usual feeding routine is twice a day but this can be altered for guests with special dietary requirements.
Please give us a guide time for arrival, so we can ensure their accommodation is prepared.
An estimated time of departure is also requested so we do not give them a slap up meal before they leave - we don't want them bringing it all back during the trip home!
In case of an emergency we have access to emergency vets but if the emergency is not in the middle of the night and providing your own vet is local, we will do our best to visit them instead.
We are happy to administer tablets, medication and diabetic insulin providing the condition is non transferable.
Vaccination cards will need to be checked each time your cat(s) stays with us.
We regret no vaccination cards, no stay!
No need to bring food bowls, food or litter... we supply it all! However we are unable to supply medical/prescription dietary requirements.
We do suggest you bring your own bedding as it will help them settle better. We do have bedding available for loan during their stay. Any toys and scratching posts are welcome.
We have a small range of bedding, houses, toys and carriers available for purchase, please ask when booking in or collecting.
WE REQUEST YOUR CAT(S) ARRIVE AND DEPART IN A SECURE AND SAFE "CAT CARRIER" - WE DON'T WANT ANY ESCAPEES!
