The details

Cat boarding

I have a boutique-style cattery in my own home. It’s designed for one cat or cats from a multi-cat household per stay.

There’s partial access outside via a big window box, which also keeps them safe. The cattery has cat shelves at differing heights for cats to jump on and there’s toys for them to play with. And there’s cat beds too. The cattery is designed so that it’s easily kept clean.

It’s a quiet environment which I believe is important to minimise a cat’s stress from being in a new environment. The cats that board here¬† have access to aircon and heating in extreme temperatures.

As the cattery is in my own home, my husband and I are home at night to tend to your cat’s needs – including any urgent vet visits that may be required.

Pet minding in your own home

I also offer to mind your pet in your own home, for times when you’re away. I can do this if you live in:

  • Penrith
  • Blacktown
  • The Hills
  • Hawkesbury
  • Blue Mountains

I’ll arrange to meet you before you go away, so that I can collect keys. I will visit your place daily to feed your pet(s) and keep them company for an hour. I can also take your bins up onto the street for bin collection.

For Penrith residents, I am happy to stay at your home with your pets while you’re away.

Pets often don’t cope well in boarding situations, so this service is intended to minimise stress for you and your pets.

Claw trimming

I offer this service so that your pets can have their claws trimmed in the comfort of their own home. I offer this service for:

  • cats
  • dogs
  • guinea pigs
  • rabbits

Why is this better than having claws trimmed at a vet clinic? It’s less stress for both you and your cats, as it can be done on your cat’s terms in the environment that your cats know best – their home!

Plus you don’t have to travel anywhere.

Vet transport

This is a great service if you don’t have access to a car, or if your car is having repairs or being serviced. I can come to your house, and take you and your treasured cat to your own vet.

Please allow up to approximately 45 minutes before the vet appointment for pick up.

After the vet visit, I’ll drop you and your cat straight back to your door.

Dog walking

I’ve recently started offering dog walking as a service. This is great if you’re very busy at work and don’t have time to walk your dog or if you go on holiday and need someone to walk your dog while you’re away.

Appointments

All my services are by appointment, to ensure that I don’t double book and to ensure that your cats receive the best possible service I can provide. Please feel free to contact me about my availability by ringing me on 0407 238 599 or send me an email to patrina@cartersmoggieminders.com.au.

If you’ve booked me in to either board or mind your cat, or to walk your dog, it would be appreciated if you could complete my pet form. This allows me to get to know a bit about your furkid or furkids. This form can be found here. Once the form has been completed, it’ll be emailed to me automatically for review.
