Our Cattery

We have spaces available for short and long stays. Our guests’ main diet is usually Royal Canin biscuits, but we are more than happy to cater to your pet’s needs. If your furry friend prefers a particular wet food or has dietary restrictions, bring  it  with you  as  there is  s o much variety   to chose

As an extension of our veterinary clinic, you can trust our boarding cattery to look after pets with special needs, including geriatric and diabetic cats that require special treatments. Simply provide us with veterinary referral notes if we haven’t been treating them ourselves.

We are available to house your cats at any time of year, but we recommend booking ahead during the holiday periods, such as Christmas time. (vet clients   have  precedence). Make sure that all of your cat’s vaccinations are up to date and have been administered in the last 6 to 8 months. This ensures that your cats have the highest immunity from contagious disease.


The cattery price is $15 per day for one cat. Extra fees per day do apply on statutory holidays, peak periods (e.g. Christmas/New Years) and for cats on medications. (The minimum stay for Christmas and New Years is $100)

  • 2 cats = $25/day
  • 3 cats = $35/day

To ensure your cat’s comfort, we provide cage runs that are larger than most other catteries; measuring 2 x 5 x 2 metres.
