About Us

Unfortunately, we’ve had to make the hard decision to close Cat-A-Tonic until December 2022.  As such, we are not accepting bookings.

We believe there is no other option as we simply cannot close for three days to deep clean if there is a Covid case here because we do not want to expose guests to deep clean chemicals.  Also, if staff and myself are isolating, there is no ability to have guests cared for at all, let alone with the loving care and infection control processes we have in place for their happiness and safety.  Added to this, the property next door is being prepared for demolition then rebuilding.

At this stage we will be closed through to December as we do not want to expose guests to the anxieties of a building site – it’s contra to the five freedoms that underpin everything we do, and besides, they’re here for a holiday.  Also, when we are able to re-open, we need it to be permanently.  We ran at a loss for a few months last year in an attempt to stay open and now have just enough in reserve to re-open once.  We will post updates – including information on the publishing of the book about Cat-A-Tonic to our face book page.

Thank you for your understanding.

The cattery was established in 1990 as Berkana Boarding Cattery, changed ownership in 2001 and then subsequently its name, to Cat-A-Tonic Boarding Cattery, in 2002. From August 2014 the cattery has new owners who are committed to upholding the tradition of providing excellent service and quality individual care.

Location, Location, Location…

Cat-A-Tonic is located in the western suburbs of Adelaide between the City and Glenelg, just off Anzac Highway. It is close to the Adelaide airport, tram and other public transport, and is ideally situated and easy to locate for anyone wanting to board their cat for any reason – moving house, renovating, hospital stay, holiday makers etc.

While you’re away, give your Cat – A – Tonic!

There are more than 5 vet practices within a few kilometres as well as the Emergency Animal Hospital for after hours medical needs.

The cattery owners live on the property and an on-site camera system provides extra security.
