More information on your Cats Holiday below

What food is given?
At Cat Utopia our nannies spend a lot of time preparing our guests meals with TLC. Although our guests receive 2 meals a day, if your kitty requires more or less meals we are able to accommodate this. Please phone to discuss your requirements ahead of kitty’s holiday. See the Menu page on the website for further information.
We specialize in giving your cat its home diet; this ensures a smooth transition from home to holiday. Our main dried food given is Australian made holistic Bio Pet

How many meals do they get per day?
We give all of our guests two meals per day – breakfast & dinner.
We also have a kitten & a senior’s package, which includes the extra meal options. extra services

Can I bring my own food?
Yes, you are more than welcome to bring kitty’s own food if you wish – though it’s not necessary.

Will my cat eat?
We have heard that this can be a problem in some boarding establishments & with house sitting. After over 21 years of caring for all types of fussy eaters we never have any problems as we give your cat a smorgasbord if they are a bit fussy.

Do you cater for kitties on special diets or with special needs?
Yes we can. All of our nannies are fully trained to care for kitties with special needs and special diets. Please discuss details at the time of booking.


Do they need to be vaccinated?
Yes. F3 or F4 given 10 days or greater before check in.
Please note; the further away from check in you vaccinate your pet the stronger protection they will have. To ensure full protection for all pets boarding at Cat Utopia Resort each pet must be fully vaccinated. Verification of up-to-date vaccinations is required and we ask clients to present their current certificates prior to boarding with us.

What is the minimum age and maximum age that I can send my kitty on holiday?
All kitties require their full F3 vaccination before boarding; most cats receive this before they are 12 weeks old. So although there is no minimum age, there is a requirement for vaccinations.

Flea & Worming Treatment

Does my cat need to be up to date with their Flea & Worming Treatments?

We ask that your cat’s flea and worm treatment be up to date. We recommend spot flea treatments such as Frontline, Advantage or Revolution (applied every month) or flea injections (if flea injection, please provide vet proof). You can bring your own flea/worming control treatment or we can provide this for your cat at $15 per treatment. If the flea control does expire whilst at our facility, your cat will have the flea treatment reapplied and this will be charged to your account

Please note: we will need to know the date of your cat’s last flea and worm treatment. If you have someone else dropping off your cat off, please ensure you give them a note with this information on it


Why do you require my kitty’s nails to be clipped?
This is a compulsory protocol we have for the safety of your kitty just in case he/she get any of their claws stuck in any materials. Your kitty’s nails must be clipped within two weeks of boarding. If you are unable to clip your kitty’s nails, we can do this for a small fee of $10.
Also, we have helped some kitties where their owner has not noticed that their claws were growing into their pads, so it is good to check every now & again, & especially for old age cats to be checked monthly.

My cat gets brushed every day at home, are you able to accommodate this?
Yes we are able to brush you kitty daily. If your kitty is susceptible to knots we can either do a professional groom to your requirements or we can do a daily brush for a small additional charge.

Safe Transfer

Do I need a Carry Cage?
Yes, your cat’s safety is important. Therefore all cats entering and exiting Cat Utopia Resort must be in an escape-proof carrier until one of our nannies can carry them to their accommodation or you leave our premises.

Resort Tour

Can I come and see your facilities before deciding?
Yes you can. We would be happy to give you a tour of our Resort. As our staff – or nannies as we lovingly call them, are always busy attending to our guests, we ask that you phone first to organise a suitable time and day so that we can ensure that one of our lovely nannies is available to show you around Cat Utopia Resort.
