Cattery at Parkhill vets

Parkhill Veterinary Hospital has a boarding cattery on-site. It is a semi-communal boarding cattery, meaning that the cats share an open space during the day but have their own sleeping quarters at night.  The cats have access to an indoor area with scratching posts and toys, hiding places and comfy beds, as well as an outdoor run with walkways and ramps, logs to scratch at and areas to sleep. There is fresh water available at all times. The cattery cats are provided with a premium diet from the Royal Canin range which is included in the daily boarding fee. The cattery fills up quickly over the holiday periods so book early!

Costs: $15.00 per cat per day for standard boarding. Cats needing medicating are charged $20. Please discuss this with the cattery manager.

The admission policy is that all cats need to be current with their vaccinations, with their most recent one within the last 12 months (and not due during their stay). Cats must be at least 12 months of age, and desexed. For any queries, please contact the cattery manager.
