Cattery

Cattery

Our sister business, which is on the lower level of the clinic, offers a spacious comfy cattery with 4 styles of accommodation (Royal Suite, Large Suite, Medium Suite and Kitty Condos). Being situated in Brisbane’s inner-city makes our cattery convenient to all Brisbane suburbs. Every style of accommodation includes lots of cuddles and attention. Your cat will feast on premium Hills Science Diet food whilst in our care.

Playtime

If your cat loves to get out in the sun and watch the wildlife we have a secure outdoor enclosure available. It has ramps, tunnels and a scratching post. Playtime starts from $5.90/session (one cat).

Please note that the playtime enclosure is in an outdoor area and allows cats to jump, climb and catch some sun- rays; therefore we do not recommend playtime for cats who are over 10yrs old or those with serious medical conditions. Playtime will not be available on rainy days and outdoor playtime will be limited during the hotter months of the year for the safety of your kitty.

(limited bookings available each day and not available public holidays or Sundays)

Testimonials-Thank you soo much for taking care of my cats for me in the past month. I am so happy you cared for my kitten Cocoa and she came home very healthy and happy….Shanti also seems the same but they are both glad to be home and together again.
Thanks for the little red mouse you gave to them. Its Cocoa’s favorite, as you can see in the pic. I am glad to know I can bring them to you for great care if I have to go back to hospital again. Thanks! Janice Elizabeth- Facebook
