Accommodation

 

Our Cattery is under construction as such we have limited accommodation for felines.

 

Felines will be kept in Cages and fed accordingly.

 

The main Cattery is scheduled to be ready by the end of March 2023. Indian felines have a tendency to run away and stray free.  As such, they are presently kept in Cages the size of 6x4x4.

 

They have ample space to run about and play around.

 

Felines have a tendency to be aggressive in confinement and run away, In the event of such a mishap, we cannot be held responsible, although all necessary care and action will be taken to keep them safe.

Bookings

It would be ideal to drop your feline off early in the morning and pick him up late in the evening.

If you book a single day a flat fee of Rs 500 will be charged or the daily tariff whichever is higher. If the booking is done on the same day, the current tariff along with a walk-in fee of 500 would apply.

No check-in will be allowed before 7 am or after 6 pm.  This timing is maintained to give the pet time to settle in before the night.

No check-out will be allowed before 7 am or after 9 pm While checking out the dog will be handed over to the person booking or on the written authority of the person booking the pet.  Please do not send representatives to pick up your dog without properly authorizing them to do so.

Updates While Boarding

While we try our best to please all pet owners to keep them updated about the welfare of their pets, we do understand and prioritize with first-timers, however, please do not keep insisting on us sending you photos as it becomes difficult, we are more concerned about the welfare of all the pets at the park, keeping them safe and healthy is more important than keeping you happy. 

We have stopped posting videos and photographs (Regularly) on social media as some of them have blocked our content and even blocked our Twitter handle.  Repeated requests have failed to recover our handle and we do not wish to change our handle nor delete any videos or photographs as they are general in nature and do not offend anybody. Hence the Free Updates option which was available earlier is not available anymore. With effect from 15 Mar, 21 Updates will be reflected in the Boarding Forms as follows

An update is in the form of a video lasting 15-20 seconds or a photograph.  There will be no added text.  Please refer to the FAQs below to answer most of the questions you may want to know about your pet while they stay with us.

1.  No Updates.

2.  Single Updates are sent directly to your WhatsApp or Signal Account with an additional charge of Rs 150 per day. You will be added to a group that gives single updates.  [Whatsapp conversations will be disabled in this group]

3.  Double updates are Rs 250 per day wherein videos and photographs of your pets are taken to focus on your pets only. 

4. For Pets whose stay exceeds 30 days weekly updates in the form of videos or photos are sent once a week at no extra charge. [All Paid updates are subject to Internet Connectivity and speed to upload Media Files] 

When you leave your pet with us, we treat him/her as our own baby so rest assured, she or he will be well taken care of.

The above charges are meant specifically to discourage Pet Owners from bothering the dog handlers who are looking after all the pets equally irrespective of who the owner is.  Updates once selected will not be changed during the entire period of their stay. Unless in case of an emergency please try to avoid calling us with questions in relation to their stay, here are a few questions you may be ready to ask us and these are the answers that you may get in return. Commonly asked questions.

Whenever any one of the following questions is asked we will refer you to this page to read the answers that we will be giving you.

Q.  Is he/she eating?  

Answer: Yes, he/she is eating, that's what you pay us for, to make sure that he/she eats their food and is looked after.

Q.  Did he sleep well?

Answer: No pet ever sleeps well in a different environment, if anyone tells you this it is not true, once the feline frequents our place a couple of times and is familiar with the environment, the staff, and the permanent felines around they tend to relax and feel comfortable as a second home.  

Q.  Did he/she drink water?

Answer:  The answer will always be Yes; we do not monitor how many times the cats drink water but monitor their urine and stool (Not the number of times but the type and color of the urine or stool) which gives us a fair idea on the health and amount of water the cat drinks during his stay.

Q.  Does he/she trouble you?

Answer: Looking after pets is our Passion, we are passionate and have converted this into a profession for which you are paying us.  Thank you for being concerned but no pets trouble us.

Q.  Did he Miss me?

Answer: Of course, your pet misses you, however, the number of days he stays with us is still used to your TLC.

Q. Have you given him his/her medicines?

Answer: If you have attached a doctor's prescription and have advised us to do so it is obvious that we will give her/him his/her medicines why would we ask you for a medical prescription in the first place.

Q. Has he/she had a bath?

Answer: We do not groom felines unless we are specifically asked to do so.

Q.  I have not received a picture or a video of my pet?

Answer: If you have opted for Paid updates, we do not guarantee that we can send you pictures daily but yes you will still be charged daily.  The reason for not uploading pictures could vary as at times we do not have electricity and sometimes the net connectivity is extremely poor we may not be able to upload media files.

Q.  Is he having a good relationship with other cats?

Answer: Felines take a long time to gel with fellow felines we do not allow them to socialize or mingle with each other unless we are completely sure about their behavior.

Q.  My pet was hurt, is he okay?

Answer: If your pet was hurt and if you have declared this in the form, we will take care of him/her. It is a waste of time trying to find out whether your pet has been miraculously healed as soon as he enters our premises. If you have not declared, then you are an irresponsible pet parent, and please do not show your responsibility by asking us questions about his wounds, we may even ignore such questions.

Q.  Is My pet, Okay?

Answer: Yes, he is okay, that's what you pay us for to make sure they are fine.

Q.  Why are you so rude in answering our questions?

Answer: Our place is built on compassion and connection with animals, we are not running a place for humans we are running a place for pets. Our staff go through a lot of hard work and are stressed, humans can read, animals can't, the fact that we have a detailed website for the humans is to make sure that you are aware of everything and ninety-nine percent of your questions are answered here, if you have not read our website please don't blame us for being defensive.

Yellow Slip

A yellow Slip may be issued to a Pet owner for the following reasons:

Inappropriate conduct of the Pet Owner towards his pet if found with Ticks and fleas and not bathed properly.

Non-Payment of Dues and Desertion.

Issue of a Yellow slip may lead to Blue Page reporting and subsequent  Suspension of Services.

An Orange Slip is issued when the problem is repeated after the issue of three yellow slips and the problem still persists.  The slips are reminders for behavior correction as the behavior of the canine/feline may inadvertently affect the canine/feline/pet themselves.  

A Red Page may not necessarily be issued but will be marked against the Pet and could also be the Result of the Suspension of Services.  This information may also be shared with other Kennels offering services similar to the facilities we have. 

Blue Page Reports are basically reports based on the interaction between the pet owner and the management of the Park.

Following are some of the reasons why a Blue Page report may be required.

  • Unnecessary Calling or chatter on WhatsApp, despite the Update Protocol.

  • Suggestions on how to keep their pet while the pet stays with us.

  • Accusations, Abusiveness, and belittling of the staff.

  • Violation of not reporting any prior medical the canine/feline/pet may have.

Blue Pages are issued in the form of Follow Up Reports or as a Blue Page Report itself. 

A Blue Page report is normally signed off by the Feline owner for his or her Behaviour towards the staff of the Park or for any of the reasons mentioned in the Suspension of Services.

A Blue Page may also lead to the Feline being issued with a Red Page.
