We have spaces available for short and long stays. We feed Royal Canin biscuits to all guest's , however If your furry friend has dietary restrictions or  specific  needs  or  wants , please bring this food along with you.

We do not supply wet food , if you would like your cat to have wet food during the stay you will need to supplie this yourself.

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.



Please ensure that all of your cat’s vaccinations are up to date and bring proof of vaccinations along with you for their stay as well as having a current flea & worm treatment. 

Vaccinations must be done 2 weeks prior to the stay.

Please provide the name of your current vet clinic so we are able to access history if required.

Stays over 3 weeks require a deposit and credit card number on file.
