Good Morning

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

While the animal is in their care they are responsible if the cat passes away due to their negligence they can be held liable.

You are liable to pay their fees and I also suspect to pay for the extra time the cat remains with them.

You have to look at what you agreed to when the cat was taken to them.
