A: An up-to-date Vaccination Certificate or we can contact your Vet to obtain vaccination records. If you feed your cat Prescription Wet food then the owner must supply it. Please remember to bring along any medication that your cat may require. It's always a good idea to bring along a piece of clothing such as a shirt or something that you sleep in which has your smell on it. This can be of great comfort to your cats and can help them settle in quickly when placed in their bed. Of course, you can always bring along their favorite toy and bed. We do however supply most things at the NDcattery for NO extra fee.
