Tailor Your Service

You might prefer more than one daily visit or perhaps every second day will be

enough. Talk to us about your specific needs. A combination of services can be arranged depending on the amount of time you’re away and your cat’s particular requirements.  

Requirements

  • A cat carry cage must be made available
  • All cats must have up-to-date immunisation and be free of fleas.
