The Ark Veterinary Hospital cattery is equipped with a tri-level cattery, and we can accommodate cats for long and short term stays where they are cared for (and given lots of cuddles and TLC from!!) our team of veterinary nurses.
When you bring your cat, the caretaker brings to the cat room where your cat gets its own box. Here is a litter box, feed and water bowl and there is a nice rug to sleep on. It seems sad to leave your cat in a box, but for many cats it is very pleasant and safe. They come in a strange environment, smell unknown smells, other cats … and this often gives stress. Here your cat has the opportunity to get used to comfort without having to have direct contact with the guests who have been staying at the cattery for some time.
Make the transition a lot less stressful
We always recommend to bring your own blanket so that the transition from your house to our cattery for your cat is a lot less stressful. Please bear in mind that items that have come along can be lost or broken. Unfortunately we can not reimburse this. The vet nurse try to please every cat as much as possible. Every cat is definitely entitled to a daily hug with us!
Our main food consists of very high quality dry cat food, possibly supplemented with canned food, depending on what your cat is accustomed to, so that there is something for every cat that he likes to eat. Does your cat have dietary food? Please let us know and we will make sure your cat gets the food that he/she needs.
Your cat has regular caretakers. This is very pleasant because we get to know your cat well in this way. We keep an aye on strange, deviant behavior or possibly becoming ill . If we suspect that something is wrong with your cat, we can go directly to the veterinarian present in the building. The vet costs will be charged when you come to collect your pet.
If your cat uses medication, let us know and we take care of it. Please bring it with you when you bring your cat. We would like a clear description of the medicine, the dosage and what the medicine is given for.
We can board dogs for the day, but for extended periods recommend that they go to a kennel to board. We recommend Meadowmist Kennels for dog boarding. The Ark acts as a pick up and drop off point for the kennels So you can conveniently drop off your pet and pick them up from Lindfield before and after your holiday. Meadowmist Kennels has boarding facilities for both cats and dogs so your whole furry family can board in the same place.
