Accessibility Statement

Happy Cat is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so, adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

While Happy Cat strives to adhere to the accepted standard and guidelines for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. We want everyone who visits our website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.


What are we doing?

To help us make the Happy Cat website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.
The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level A as the target for the Happy Cat website.


How are we doing?

As a small business, we struggle with budget and capacity to make these changes. If you have a specific need or question, reach out anytime to our helpful team. We truly do our best to accommodate all needs both online and in our storefront. We're working hard to achieve our goal of Level A accessibility, but we realize there are some areas that still need improving. The following information explains what we're doing to make that happen.


1.1.1: Non-text Content

We are trying to add captions to all videos uploaded to the Happy Cat Website, as well as include alt text and captions on all imagery to assist with understanding non-text content.


1.4.1: Use of Color

At Happy Cat Vancouver, we are actively trying to update our colour choices across our website to offer more contrast for a variety of needs.


1.4.4: Resize text

We understand that a variety of sizes for text is needed. We are trying our best to adhere to an increasing of size, though we acknowledge that all pages can not be increased by 200% without loss of functionality or usability.
