Cattery

McMaster & Heap Christchurch cattery Kirsty & clientCATTERY

Thank you for choosing our Cattery for your furry friends forthcoming vacation!

We are a modern Cattery with 23 suites for 1-2 cats and 3 larger suites for families of 3-4 cats.  We are located in a purpose built facility above our established Veterinary Practice.  A vet is available 7 days a week to deal with any medical problems that may arise during your pets stay.  Our cattery suites are roomy and designed vertically so that your cat may enjoy jumping and climbing up to look out of their very own window.  They are warm, cosy, light and well ventilated.  We provide baskets and bedding to keep them cosy during their visit.
You are welcome to drop off and collect your pet at any time during our opening hours:

  • Monday-Friday 8am-7pm
  • Saturday 9am-3pm
  • Sunday 10am-2pm

Our quieter periods throughout the weekdays are between 10am-11am and 1pm-3.30pm when we should be able to attend to you most promptly.

Please note we are closed for admissions and discharges on public holidays.

When you bring your cat to be admitted, we will ask you to attend a brief no cost consultation with one of our veterinary nurses.  During this meeting we will give your pet a short health check, check their vaccination records and apply a flea treatment.  This is to ensure that our cattery stays free from any infestations and that your cat does not arrive home after their holiday with any new friends aboard!
While your pet is with us for their vacation we are more than happy to perform dental scale and polishes, grooming, blood or urine testing, nail cliping and anything else you pet so desires.

If you have your own flea treatment at home (Advantage, Revolution or Frontline only) please feel free to bring it with you for us to apply during the nurses appointment.  Alternatively, we can provide a flea treatment for the additional charge of $ 17.20

In our cattery we serve meals of Hills Science Diet Feline original biscuits twice daily.  Kittens will be fed the kitten variety and older cats will get senior biscuits. If your cat is fussy to start with, wet food options will be tried and tested. If your cat has any particular prescription dietary requirements or would just prefer an alternative, please bring food with you to last for the duration of the stay.

For reservations over the busy Christmas and New Year period we require a deposit of $35.00 or 20 % of your fee to be paid within 28 days to secure your booking.  Please make cheques payable to McMaster and Heap Veterinary Practice or alternatively pop in to see us at the practice.

We look forward to seeing you soon, but please contact us if your have any other questions.
