Local Shipping

What types of shipping methods are available?

We offer 3 different types of shipping methods for customers. You can select the method of your choice at the checkout.

  • Store Pickup
    No shipping fee, available during store opening hours

  • Free Shipping (Orders <$59)
    Free shipping 3 - 5 working days upon purchase.

  • Standard Shipping (Orders <$59)
    $6 shipping fee, delivered within 3 - 5 working days upon purchase.

How long will my order take to reach me?

We seek to deliver an order within 3-5 business days from the time it is processed.

You will receive an SMS and/or email as soon as your order leaves our fulfilment centre. If dispatched to you via courier, an SMS from our appointed delivery partner will be sent to you on the morning of the delivery date.

Orders placed during sale periods (etc. 11/11, 12/12 sales) and leading up to holiday seasons (etc. Chinese New Year, Christmas, Black Friday) or store closures may experience longer than usual fulfilment times.

Which courier companies do you engage?

Our parcels are delivered by J&T Express. Bulky or frozen items are delivered in-house during specific timeslots.

What if I am uncontactable at the time of delivery?

If there is a chance you may be uncontactable during delivery of your order, we provide three actionable choices that you may instruct our shipping partners to undertake.

  1. Leave order at door
  2. Leave order in riser
  3. Attempt re-delivery of your order ($6 redelivery fee will apply)

These options are available for your selection at the checkout page and serve as instructions for our shipping partners on the next best course of action should they be unable to contact you personally for the handover of your parcels.

The action of requesting for your order to be left unattended is referred to as an "Authority to Leave" (ATL).

It is important to note that parcels cannot be delivered or left unattended if our shipping partners are not granted access to the delivery address. This includes locations and situations such as:

  • Gated condominiums
  • Gated landed properties
  • Passcode protected properties
  • Security guards preventing delivery access to the unit
  • Customers not being present to allow entry to the property

While our delivery partners endeavour to do their best to successfully deliver your parcels, they should not be expected to trespass. If it should not be possible to gain access to a delivery address, our delivery partners will not be able to proceed with an ATL, even if opted for.

What does an Authority to Leave (ATL) mean for me?

An ATL equates to a transfer of responsibility for the goods from us to you or your authorised party. Responsibility for all items are transferred to you upon delivery of the parcel.

Once an ATL is provided, and should our delivery partners be able to access the delivery address, the parcel will be left per the ATL, signifying completion of the delivery.

Please note that we are strictly unable to:

  • Leave orders unattended if an ATL is not provided
  • Accommodate return requests for ATL if your order contains frozen food items
  • Process requests for refunds, exchanges or replacements for defective or missing items after the responsibility of the order has been transferred

How do I know my order is on the way?

As soon as your order has been picked up by the courier, you will receive an SMS and/or email notification to keep you informed.

I've ordered a frozen product. When will I receive it?

Frozen products will be delivered on Monday and Thursdays from 12PM - 6PM. Each of our frozen and chilled cat food is thoughtfully accompanied by a complimentary insulated packaging for your convenience. Whether you're opting for in-store pickup or hassle-free courier delivery, we've got you covered!

Product Availability

Product Availability

Are all items on the website available for purchase?

Yes, item inventory is now live!

Upon receiving your order, your purchases are picked and packed.

What if an item in my order is out of stock?

If an item in your order is out of stock, a member of Customer Support will be in touch to assist you with:

  1. A refund
  2. Recommendations for a similar item

We process refunds within the same working day, to your original mode of payment - No questions asked. 

Repacking Services

Do you offer repacking services for dry food?

We do not offer repacking services for dry foods for hygiene purposes.

Your cat food is kept freshest when sealed within the original product packaging. Once the seal is broken, it is recommended to consume the food within 1-2 months to avoid rancidity of the product.

Repackaging food into multiple smaller portions does not keep it fresher for longer as the food has been exposed to air and light. Most repackaging bags are also gas-permeable, compromising the integrity of the food.

Subscriptions

Creating a Subscription

What is a subscription?

A subscription allows pet parents to automatically place orders for specific items to be delivered their doorstep!

When you sign up for a subscription, you are setting up a standing arrangement to have an order containing items of your choice generated automatically, to be processed on our web store at fixed intervals of your choice (etc. 1 month, 2 months).

With your permission, a charge will be placed automatically on your credit card and we will process these orders as if they were placed by you personally online - Saving you time and providing an element of added convenience! Certain products also allow pet parents to enjoy additional savings if they are subscribed to 🙂

Can I subscribe to sale, discounted or items on offer?

Yes, you may! However, please be aware that the item may become unavailable on a future recurring subscription, and your subscription will end once the item or offer is no longer available for fulfilment or sale.

We reserve the right to withhold fulfilment of an order that contains items that cannot be fulfilled (ie. if they are no longer on sale, discount, or on offer).

Can I add free gifts and samples to my subscription?

Free gifts and samples will ship with your parent order, but not on subsequent renewals.

Such items if discovered will be removed from your subscription. The product(s) you have opted to subscribe to will otherwise ship as per normal!

Adjusting Your Subscriptions

Can I customize my subscription duration?

Yes. The default available settings for subscription renewal on our website are every 2, 4 or 6 weeks, but you can certainly request for us to make this shorter or longer for you, depending on your pet's needs.

To have someone assist you with amending your subscription's renewal duration, please get in touch with us.

How do I add an item to an existing subscription?

To add an item to your existing subscription, you should add the items you wish to subscribe to in your cart.

At the checkout page, select the option to receive these items via subscription.

Scroll down past the cart total, and you should see the option to Add this cart to an existing subscription.

A list of your existing subscriptions will appear. Click to Add your cart to the subscription of your choice and it will combine your subscription.

Can you edit a subscription for me?

If you need help amending your subscription, please get in touch with us at 6288 3636.

How do I upgrade/downgrade an item in an existing subscription?

Upgrading/downgrading an item in your subscription means that you have the option to switch between variations of the same product. This option is only available to specific items, and will appear to you in the form of a button.

  • Clicking this will bring you back to the product page, where you can select another variation of the product to replace your subscription.
  • To confirm your selection, click to proceed with the button "Sign Up Now".
  • Proceed to the checkout to confirm your selection. You will not be charged, but your subscription will be amended.
  • You will be brought to the confirmation page, where you can click to view your amended subscription and future billing amount.
  • Clicking to view the subscription will show the amended subscription and new order total!

Subscription Continuity

If I subscribe to an item, does it mean it will always be kept in stock for me?

A subscription is not a guarantee of product availability - However, we will do our best to ensure that your order is in stock as this gives us a greater indication of how much stock we need to keep handy for our pet parents!

We will undertake all reasonable efforts through proper forecasting and stock management to ensure that we are able to provide you with the items which you have subscribed to receive.

In the rare chance that we are unable to procure an item in your subscription plan, a member of our team will be in touch to provide personal assistance as per a regular order made with us.

What if an item I subscribe to is affected by a price change?

Products we stock are occasionally affected by pricing changes that are passed on to us by manufacturers and distributors. We endeavor to absorb these price fluctuations as best as we can, but in the event of mandatory price amendments, we will be in contact to assist affected customers and amend their subscriptions with consent to reflect these changes.

If you do not wish to continue with your subscription at the new price, you may cancel your subscription - No questions asked.

We reserve the right to withhold fulfilment of an order that contains items that cannot be fulfilled (ie. if they are no longer on sale, discount, or on offer).

Billing & Shipping

When am I billed for each subscription?

You are billed for your subscription on the date that your next subscription is generated.

For example, if you place an initial order for a monthly subscription on the 18th of March 2020, your credit card will be billed again for an identical order on the 18th of April 2020.

To have someone assist you with amending your subscription's renewal duration, please get in touch with us.

When will my subscription ship?

How often your subscription recurs depends on the frequency with which you choose to receive your items.

For example, if you place an initial order for your subscription on the 18th of March 2022 and ask to have it recur once a month, your account will have an order automatically generated, containing items of your choice, on the 18th of April 2022.

We will prepare this order for delivery within 1-3 working days of processing it.

How do I upgrade/downgrade an item in an existing subscription?

Upgrading/downgrading an item in your subscription means that you have the option to switch between variations of the same product. This option is only available to specific items, and will appear to you in the form of a button.

  • Clicking this will bring you back to the product page, where you can select another variation of the product to replace your subscription.

If you wish to cancel a subscription entirely, you can contact us at 6288 3636 for assistance.

Cancellation fees may or may not apply.

Is there a fee for cancelling my subscription?

I have a duplicate order!

Checkout times can differ depending on individual internet speed and location.

If you have double-clicked, refreshed, or navigated away from the checkout while it was processing your request to initiate payment for an order, you may find that you have accidentally created a duplicate order. We are not able to process charges on your card without your consent.

  1. You must contact us prior to dispatch of the order for delivery, for eligibility for cancellation.
  2. You agree to and will bear bank processing fees for cancellation of the order

Bank processing fees typically amount to 3% + $0.50 of the order total. (ie. an order of $100 will incur a bank processing fee of $3.50).

Bank processing fees are imposed by payment processors and credit card companies such as:

  • Paypal
  • Stripe
  • VISA
  • Mastercard
  • American Express
  • NETS

Bank processing fees are not refundable under any circumstance. If you prefer not to pay the bank processing fee, then we shall treat and fulfil the duplicate order as per normal.

    Please follow the steps outlined below:

    1. Take photos or videos of your order and all items in it, as it was received
    2. Reach out to us within 7 days from the date of delivery

*Please note that our 30-day return policy is not applicable in these scenarios.

What is your 30-day return policy?

We know how cats can be, so at Neko Neko, it’s totally A-OK to change your mind (or rather, theirs). If you’re not totally satisfied with your purchase, simply return it within 30 days to us, together with proof of purchase, for a full refund.

What items are eligible for your return policy?

To remain eligible for the return, your item must:

  • Remain unused in its original packaging and form
  • Not be defective or damaged
  • (If it is a perishable product), have at least 6 months of shelf life remaining
  • Not fall into any of the following categories:

Once we have checked the returned item for signs of defect or damage, we’ll provide an exchange on the item, or reverse your payment within 7 working days.

The item must be accompanied by your receipt at time of purchase.

Refunds & Returns Policy

What items are eligible for a defective return/exchange?

A defective product shall be defined as one which:
  • Contains missing parts required for operation or use
  • Injured packaging that compromises the safety of use
  • The customer believes is inferior in quality

My canned food arrived dented. I would like to request for an item return/exchange.

Please note that lightly dented canned foods are not considered defective. The likelihood of cans denting during transit to you is elevated by a few factors, namely:

1. Movement of cans within the parcel (ie. minute spaces between cans of different sizes may cause denting)

2. Friction between cans of different sizes (ie. larger cans may dent smaller cans)

3. Friction between cans of different metal densities (ie. harder cans may dent softer cans)

In a bid to be environmentally friendly, we do our best to reduce packaging waste and filler material. If you are concerned or bothered by minor denting, we ask that you leave a request at checkout to ask that we take additional steps to secure your parcel with packing material such as foam peanuts, styrofoam or bubble wrap. However, such synthetic material have a harmful impact on our environment. We urge you to think keenly about the need for this before making such a request!

How soon will I receive my refund?

Refunds once initiated are immediate and automatically reflected in our system. However, your funds may take a couple days to get back to you.

Credit Card

If you've paid for your order using a credit card, the refund will be credited back to the same credit card. The fund reversal should reflect on your bank statement within 3-5 working days.

Debit Card

If you've paid for your order using a debit card, the refund will be credited back to the same debit card. The fund reversal should reflect on your bank statement within 9 working days.

PayNow or Equivalent Bank Transfer
