It doesn’t matter whether you use a Cattery with private rooms or Semi Individual where your cat shares with others during the day; there is always a small chance your cat may get sick. Just like when we take our kids to play group, there is a possibility they may get head lice or even a cold, And as do play groups, Cattery owners do all they can to minimize the rick of your cat getting sick, after all, it our lively hood.

All Cat Boarding facilities in New Zealand are required to have some kind of Isolation unit or facility; this is a room where a sick cat can be kept on its OWN with NO other animals, this is to stop the spread of any viruses etc.

It is standard procedure at The Deloraine Cattery. Should a cat show ANY signs of illness to immediately have the animal placed into Isolation so he/she can be monitored. A vet is then called, and if need be the cat is taken to the veterinarian as soon as possible. When the vet has given the all clear the cat is then returned to the cattery, however it will then spend the remainder of its stay in the Isolation facility, (unless otherwise advised by the vet)

Owners or emergency contacts are only called if required; this would mean the animal is very ill or we simply can not have the animal back at the cattery, and you will need to arrange to have the cat collected from the Vets.

So why don’t we call the owners first?

  1. We feel it is far more important to call the vet first; after all it may not be anything to worry about.
  2. What can you do (the owner) from half way around the world? Except worry.
  3. Lets say your cat was in a fight at home, 2 days later you drop him off at the cattery, and off you go on holiday. mean while an abscess has started to devalop on your cat, where it had been bitten by the cat it was figthing with at home days before, the abscess then pops… I will do my best to keep the wound clean however your cat will need a shot of antibiotics, so off we go to the vet …. I will not phone you while you are on holiday to tell you this, as your cat is fine.
  4. When you leave your cats at the cattery, the terms and conditions clearly states that… we reserve the right to refer your cat for veterinary attention should this, in our opinion be necessary. The owner shall be responsible for all costs incurred.

Most cats are very happy and settle into the cattery within a few hours, and you must keep in mind it is not always the facilities staff or owner at fault if cats fall ill, think of it this way…. you could always leave your cat at home alone… where they can get sick  from the stress of being left on their own, fight with the neighbours cats, run away, get hit by a car……. etc   sorry but that’s the facts. “Don’t Risk Leaving Your Cats Home Alone”.
