Does the facility require proof of the full vaccination round to take boarders?
Did they have your vaccination record when they took your cat?
If the vaccination records are not required then it is irrelevant to their protocols if the cat was vaccinated or not. If they were negligent in not having such protocols in place then you are entitled to full compensation.
If they refuse you can sue them in small claims court. Small claims court is designed to be "user friendly" so that you can present a claim without an attorney. Also, it moves much more quickly than regular court. You can get the necessary forms to start from the clerk of the court.
If they had the records and still took the cat then it is their fault for not having protocols and not reviewing the records they require for boarding. Sue them in small claims court.
