Canberra cattery recommendations?

By Jueves 27 October 2010 45

Christmas holidays will soon be upon us, so it’s time to consider what to do with the kitty-cat whilst away.

Although he’s black and white so would fit in quite nicely with the drain cats, I’m thinking of placing him in a cattery over the Christmas period.

Any suggestions of good catteries in Canberra? I’m not too fussed on the price; I just want to make sure puss receives some quality care.

From perusing their website, Curtin Cat Care looks reasonable, but does anyone have personal experience with them?

And on an unrelated note, are there any pet grooming places in Canberra that trim/clip cats? We appear to have an abundance of dog groomers, but I’ve yet to see a listing that mentions cats.

Is that because it’s not advisable to clip them?

What’s Your opinion?

Go back to the start of this thread and you’ll see a reason why not to use a certain Canberra based cattery.

We’ve used Curtin Cat Care for a number of years. Most recently in late 2010. Can’t recommend them too highly. They do home visits as well – we’ve used both services.

we provide an In-Home Pet Care Service called All Animal Minding Service which is a great alternative to kennels.

I am keen to find out if anyone has heard of or used a private cattery on Wandana Winery Estate run by the Bates family?? They don’t actively advertise only via our vet at Gungahlin and some pet stores. I made a visit to check it out and it seems OK however I didn’t like the fact that there was only 1 cat in the cattery at the time and there didn’t seem a huge amount of human contact or anything much to look at. My first impression is that if it’s a busy place it must be good as people want their pets to stay there.
I have used Best Friends Pet Centre once and from face value I liked it but they are not keen to have people look at their facilities and to me that means they have something to hide so I’m hesitant to go back.

Holy crap – that must have been some adventure when it made its escape from Tara…

Ah no, this is the other one. He was too drunk to escape 🙂
