All you need to know for your pet’s stay at Fifficats…

At Fifficats your pets get to enjoy being pets but still some rules are necessary. In order to make sure things run smoothly we have compilated some guidelines that might be helpful to make preparations for your pet's stay at our boarding-facility. If you follow these guidelines your pet will have a great time at Fifficats!

Although we do accept drop-in business, reservations are preferred. During school holidays in North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony the boarding facility is usually booked up. Therefore we highly recommend a reservation during these time periods. For reservation please call 05423/476665.

Check-in and check-out
Please note that on behalf of our animal guests and our neighbours we are obliged to observe certain periods of rest during the day. Therefore please respect our business hours for check-in and check-out as well as our hours for visitation. Exceptions can be agreed by telephone in advance. If you would like to have your pet picked up or brought home with our Pet Taxi be sure to call us on time.

Contract for boarding and daycare
Before we check in your pet, we will make a contract that determines all rights and liabilities and contains important information on the boarding of your pet. If you like to accelerate the check-in process you may print out the contract and fill in the form at home. For further information and to download the suitable form please use the links below:

The animal food for cats and dogs is provided by Fifficats. For small animals like rabbits or guinea pigs please bring your own food. In our boarding facility for cats and dogs we only serve high quality food suited to the individual needs of your pet. In case the pet needs any special food (diet, certain brand etc.) it has to be brought by the owner. The supply of animal food by the owner has no effect on the rates for boarding/daycare.

Medication and diseases
If your pet needs any medication please bring it along to Fifficats. Please give us all information on dosage and don't forget to bring a sufficient amount for the entire stay of your pet at Fifficats. If your pet is under veterinary treatment at the time of check-in please inform us on present diseases and leave the name and telephone number of your vet. Please note that we cannot host your pet in case it currently suffers from any contagious disease.

Liability insurance (for dogs)
In your own interest you should hold a valid liability insurance for the dog. Please bring the insurance policy to provide evidence.

Vaccination and parasites-treatment
Please pay attention to a sufficient vaccination of your pet! Furthermore your pet has to be treated against flees and ticks with adequate products (e.g. frontline) and needs an anthelmintic therapy. Ask your vet which shots should be done and which measures should be taken in advance of your pet's stay at Fifficats. In the following you will find the most important facts:

Dogs need shots against Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvovirosis (DHLP/SHLP) and Rabies (R/T). A vaccination against kennel cough caused by Parainfluenza (P/Pi) is highly recommended. Cats need vaccination against Rabies, Feline Panleukopenia and Rhinotracheitis (Cat Flu). A vaccination against the Feline Leukemia Virus and Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) is highly recommended. For rabbits vaccinations against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD) and the Pasteurella bacteria are obligatory.

A proof of shots is obligatory on the day of check-in. Please do not forget to bring your vaccination records.

"Bagagge" for your pet

The content of your luggage packed for your best friend depends on the animal. For cats please bring a closed cat basket for safe transportation. If you like you may bring some toys and extra treats.

Dogs only need their collar. If you like you may bring a blanket with the smell of home, a toy and some treats. Please do not leave your private leash at Fifficats, because it might be mistaken!

For small animals like rabbits, hamsters or guinea pigs please bring the food and your cage (if possible) so they don't have do get used to a new environment. If your animals are used to stay outside we can host them in our own outdoor stable. Hay and straw will be provided by Fifficats.

Please note that Fifficats is not responsible for bedding, toys and all other personal items brought from home. If they are ruined or lost for any reason, Fifficats will not be responsible for replacement.
