About the Cattery

Single cat $27.00 per night
Two cats together $46.50 per night
Cat requires medication $30.50 per night
Does my cat need to be vaccinated?
If there is a problem with your cat’s vaccine records your cat may not be able to be admitted, or in some cases will be placed in isolation.
When do I pick up and drop off my cat?
We have currently have reduced hours due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our new hours are:
Monday – Friday 8.30am-10.30am and 4pm-5pm
Please allow 5-10 minutes to complete the necessary paperwork when dropping off your pet.
What do you feed my cat?
Does my cat get exercise or mingle with other cats?
Only cats from the same family will be housed together, if requested.
Can you give my cat their meds?
We sure can! And you’ll have the added peace of mind of having a vet on site should your pet require any medical attention. For all pets on medication, we do require a recent veterinary history outlining their condition and all medication must be in its original packaging with the vet’s label applied. There is an additional fee of $3.50 per day for cats requiring medication. Unfortunately we are unable to board diabetic cats.
My cat is not desexed. Can they still board?
My cat is over 14 years old? Will they be ok?
What happens if my pet gets sick?
I've come home early – can I pick up my cat straight away?
Monday – Friday: 8.30am-1pm, 2pm-5.30pm
