Boarding for cats that are on the BARF or raw diet.

The price for these cats is dependent on their chosen foods. We can provide raw foods from Tollden Farms. You will be charged $12 + GST for one cat and the raw foods will be additional to this charge.


$2.50 (plus GST). If your cat is on oral medication or drops we charge a nominal fee of $2.50/day.  Please let us know in advance of any medical requirements your cat might have. If your cat required medication twice a day it is $5/day.

In the event that your cat requires veterinary attention we will either take them to the closest veterinary clinic or where possible take them to their regular veterinarian. We have four excellent veterinary clinics within a ten minute drive from the spa. We charge a nominal fee of $20 to drive your cat to one of the veterinary clinics near us. If the cat has to go to another vet further away the same costs as pick-up from home would apply (please see costs below). Any veterinary costs would be added to your bill.
