    When you bring your cat to Calypso, we will need to see the cat’s immunisation records. We will check that your cat is up to date with the following immunisations:

    • Feline herpes virus
    • Feline calicivirus
    • Feline infectious enteritis
    • Feline leukaemia virus
  6. What else does my cat need?
    We will also need to see proof (at least 15 days old) of recent antiparasite treatment (fleas, tics and worms). Please bring proof of this.
    If your cat is older than six months during its stay with us, then it must be castrated or sterilised. Whatever your cat’s age, it must be identified with either a tattoo or electronic chip. We will also need contact details for somebody in case of emergency. Please download and complete this form, have the person sign it and bring it with you when you bring your cat.
  7. How do I know if my cat will be happy staying with you?
    We hold a Diploma in Cat and Dog Boarding Specialist in the European Union, in accordance with the European Directive 2005/36 / CE of the European Parliament and of the Council of the 7th September 2005 relating to the recognition of professional qualifications.
    In order to ease your anxieties, we have put in place a secure webcam system allowing you to observe your cat during its stay with us (available on tablet or mobile phone - Android or iOS).
