General Terms and Conditions

 

Boarding Arrangements and Transport

  • Sharing of accommodation is only available to cats who are considered compatible and are from the same household. We reserve the right to separate cats showing signs of distress or aggression. The appropriate charges will apply.

  • Additional cats cannot be accommodated in chalets that are already at the specified maximum occupancy capacity.

  • Cats must be transported to the Hotel and enter the building in a secure and suitable pet travel carrier.

  • All belongings are left at the owner's risk.

 

Emergency Contact

We require a contact number which will be used in the event we are unable to contact the owner. This contact number will be used in emergency medical situations or if you are delayed collecting your cat.

 

Food and Feeding

  • Owners are welcome to supply their cat’s favourite or prescription brand of cat food for the duration of the boarding period. There will be no reduction in boarding fees in these circumstances.

  • Food supplied by the Catari Cat Hotel is subject to availability.

  • We will use reasonable endeavours to supply and feed as instructed by the owners. However, alternative brands or suitable foods may be fed if the cat is not eating its usual diet.

 

Collection 

  • If you are unable to collect your cat during office opening hours, you must make advance arrangements to either book a Pet Taxi or arrange for someone to collect your cat on your behalf. If neither of these options is possible you must book an extra day’s boarding for which payment will be required upon collection. Please note we cannot guarantee boarding for your cat for any extra days. 

  • If somebody other than you is collecting your cat please inform us of their details at check-in.

  • If a guest has not been collected during office opening hours on check-out day, and there has been no communication from the owner, an additional day's boarding fee may be applied.

 

Non-Collection

If cats have not been collected within 1 week after the check-out date, and despite best efforts, it has not been possible for us to make contact with the owner or their emergency contact, arrangements will be made for unclaimed cats at our discretion.
