Management and Benefits

The boarding cattery is managed and supervised by a veterinarian to ensure the highest quality of care for your cat while it enjoys its stay with us. Each cat is monitored individually.

We are a small cattery so we can focus on the needs of your cats. All cats are monitored and have their own charts to record behaviour, food and water intake, and litter tray output to ensure good health.

We can cater for the care of high need cats that may need additional veterinary care during their stay with us. These include cats requiring daily medication or insulin injections. Elderly or nervous / fussy cats are welcome - we understand cat behaviour and respond to their needs. An additional fee may be incurred for these services.

Food is included in the rates however you may provide your own food if your cat is fussy and used to a set menu. We use good quality food (dry and wet (not fresh meat)) and also Prescription food is available for those cats on special diets.

Long term boarders are weighed weekly to ensure they are not loosing weight or gaining too much weight.


Preference will be given to existing customers who use our clinic for veterinary services and grooming.

All cats coming in to board must be currently vaccinated against Feline Enteritis and Cat Flu (F3Vacc). If required, this is readily available here at our clinic.

All cats over 6 months old must be desexed before coming in to board with us. You can arrange a separate appointment beforehand for this to be done as required.

All cats will be checked prior to boarding. If there is any evidence of fleas, appropriate flea treatment will be applied, the fee for this is $18 to $25.

The first time you board with us, you will need to sign a Boarding Consent Form that permits appropriate treatment for any health condition that arises. We also need details about your cat such as the type of food and the type of litter that it is used to plus its general rountine/demeanor, and health comments about your cat so we can best serve their needs. Emergency contact details are also required.

Admission and Discharge Times

These times are usually in the morning or the late afternoon and by appointment so we have time to speak to you about your cat. Weekend and Publlic Holiday discharges can be arranged.
