Our cat resort will administer medication to all manageable cats. However, should a cat risk causing harm to our staff or to itself whilst medication is being administered, making it impossible to treat the cat, then it will be necessary for the cat to be cared for by a vet, either at our resort, or at the vet clinic. Any vet fees incurred in this situation will be charged to the cat owner prior to release.
