4. General

i. You will be required to sign a 'boarding form' the first time you board your cat at The Garden Mews. This will state that you have read and understood the Terms and Conditions. It will also give us permission to administer any medication or treatment necessary, and to seek Veterinary advice.

ii. An emergency contact telephone number must be supplied for any concerns we may have about your cat's health.

iii. Cats must be transported to and from The Garden Mews in a suitable cat carrier which will remain at the cattery during the stay.

N.B. It should be noted that we have decided NOT to adopt a cancellation policy. However, if during our very busy times when we are fully booked and not able to re-let your reserved rooms, we would like to think we could expect full payment to compensate us for loss of business.
