1.7.2023: Please note that I am retired. I no longer run the cattery as a business. I enjoy what I do and have made great friends with many clients over the years. I will only be taking a very small numbers of cats for existing clients. I will not be taking any new clients, because I do not want a fulltime job. Most of my regular clients have been coming since the cattery started in 2012.
PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM CLOSED ON CHRISTMAS DAY, BOXING DAY, NEW YEARS DAY AND EASTER SUNDAY.
OVER THE CHRISTMAS PERIOD THE CATTERY IS OFTEN FULL. RUNS ARE ALLOCATED ON A FIRST IN BEST DRESSED BASIS. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MOVE CATS AS REQUIRED FOR MANAGEMENT PURPOSES. I WILL HAVE CATS ARRIVING FOR RUNS THAT ANOTHER CAT IS LEAVING FROM. AT TIMES IF A CLIENT IS DELAYED, THAT MAY REQUIRE A HOLDING PERIOD OF AN HOUR OR SO, BEFORE YOUR CAT HAS A CLEAN SPARE RUN TO GO INTO. YOUR CAT WILL ALWAYS BE CLEAN, COMFORTABLE AND WELL CARED FOR. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
AS OF THE START OF 2023 I WILL BE CHARGING A FLAT RATE OF $18 PER CAT, PER CALENDAR DAY, DURING PUBLIC & SCHOOL HOLIDAY PERIODS. ALL RUNS ALLOCATED AS THEY ARE BOOKED.
FOR CHRISTMAS ONLY – BOOKINGS OF LESS THAN TEN DAYS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED PRIOR TO 10TH DECEMBER 2023.
PLEASE REMEMBER YOU PAY FOR ALL THE DATES YOU HAVE BOOKED, UNLESS YOU AMEND THE DATES 14 DAYS PRIOR TO ENTRY.
IF YOU ARE BOOKING A CAT IN FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME, PLEASE NOTE I DO NOT CARRY CREDIT. YOU WILL NEED TO PAY ONE MONTH IN ADVANCE AND REMAIN IN CREDIT DURING YOUR CAT’S STAY.
The Cat’s Whiskers is clean, safe and comfortable.
All the cat runs have three levels and a window.
The Deluxe Suites have their own outside runs, to which the cat’s have individual access at least 12 hours a day.
All Deluxe suites have as standard, heat pads in winter & Snooza Igloos. Scratching posts and crinkly tunnels.
Deluxe rates start at $14/cat/calendar day. These suites are suitable for 2 cats from the same family.
I also offer three Deluxe Family Suites than can comfortably accommodate 3 to 4 cats for the same family. These 3 runs do not have climate control that is in the main cattery area.
The Standard Suites have no access to an outside area, but the cats in these suites do spend some time daily out in the central atrium area.
Standard rates start at $14/cat/calendar day. These suites are suitable for only one cat.
The main cattery area is fully insulated, has 4hp of reverse cycle air conditioning & a large fan for your cat’s all year round comfort.
There is a spacious central atrium area with scratching posts and climbing towers.
Music is played for most of the day, so your cat will feel at home. I also regularly use Feliway pheromone spray to keep your cat in a relaxed, happy frame of mind.

Discount Rates: If your cat is boarding for over four months and you are on a discount rate, I reserve the right to move your cat to a standard run during peak periods.
Medication: A charge of $3/medication administered will be charged.
Christmas/New Year Boarding Protocol: Many clients book Xmas a year in advance. Due to that fact, Xmas bookings are allocated as “first in, best dressed” Once deluxe runs are gone, you will be automatically allocated a Standard Suite. As soon as a Deluxe suite becomes available, your cat will be moved into that run. In general, 23rd Dec to 3rd Jan are the critical dates where you may not have your first choice run. All deluxe runs are usually filled by July.
Rates are per calendar day. You pay for ALL dates booked unless you amend the dates fourteen days prior to entry date.
DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS FROM 2020 AND STILL CONTINUING AS WE MOVE INTO 2023, I AM ASKING THAT PAYMENTS ARE CASH ON DELIVERY, THAT WAY I DO NOT CHARGE YOU A DEPOSIT AND YOU ONLY PAY IF YOU TURN UP. THEN I DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP REFUNDING CLIENTS WHO TEST POSITIVE AND CANCEL THEIR HOLIDAY.
I have no EFTPOS facilities but you may pay by internet bank transfer if we have agreed on that.
My bank details are as follows…
BSB: 066 507 – Commonwealth Bank. Bunbury.

You will be charged for all dates booked unless changed 14 days prior to entry date booked.
During school holiday periods Deluxe suites are allocated on a first booked basis.
Grooming Please do not ask me to groom your grumpy Persian cat 🙂
If you have a small breed sterilised dog that you wish to board over a holiday period, I may be able to help you. Feel free to make an enquiry. Dog rates start at $34 per day.
