Vets on Parker’s Templestowe cattery is a bright, clean, warm and most importantly a safe environment for your beloved feline friend to enjoy while you’re out of town.

Have peace of mind knowing that a full team of vets, vet nurses and loving cattery attendants is on hand should your cat have any healthcare needs throughout its stay at our cat boarding facility. Our cattery staff specialise in lots of cuddles and TLC, as well as catering for special needs animals.

Cat boarding accommodation types

Vets on Parker’s cat boarding in Templestowe offers:

  • Our multilevel cat condos include a private bedroom for privacy and comfort.
  • Reverse cycle air-conditioning – keeping the room at optimal temperature day and night.
  • Large outdoor garden area – for cats who like to lie in the sun and stretch their legs.

In addition, each cat condo and home is equipped with a fluffy bed for your cat to sleep in, a large litter tray and fresh food and water. You are also welcome to bring in your cat’s favourite toys and bedding (just put a name tag on them first!).

During their stay at our Templestowe cat boarding, your pet will enjoy a premium quality diet with Hills Science Diet Cat Food. We are also able to fully cater for any special dietary requirements your cat may have and you are welcome to bring in other diets or special treats that they like.

Cat Vaccination Certificate requirements

A current F3 flu and enteritis vaccination certificate is required on admission. If your cat’s vaccinations are not up to date, Vets on Parker can vaccinate, worm and provide flea treatment for your cat on admission.

Professional veterinary care is available onsite at our cattery

If your cat needs medical assistance at any time during their stay, we have a fully equipped veterinary clinic just upstairs. We regularly board animals requiring medication and diabetic animals needing insulin. We also collect all your contact details on admission so we can contact you if there are any concerns during your pet’s stay. You are welcome to call us at any time to see how your cat is going.

Cattery bookings

Owing to our good reputation and convenient location, our Templestowe cat boarding is often fully booked, so we suggest that you book in advance – especially if you are going away over school holiday periods or public holidays. Please phone us on 9850 1355 to make a booking or to enquire. A deposit is required for stays over the Easter and Christmas holiday periods.
