Customer Charter

Your cat’s care and wellbeing are our top priority at our cattery.

We believe it is important to demonstrate our commitment to our valued customers and guests at Hillview Farm 5-Star Cat Boarding outside Melbourne.

This Customer Charter is our service promise and outlines the important things to us and all of our clients. We want you to leave your cat at Hillview Cattery with peace of mind that they are receiving the best possible care.

  2. Your precious pet is given individual attention every day. We don’t just say it; we do it!
  3. We take hygiene very seriously. We have a daily rigorous cleaning regime that is never compromised. We are always happy to discuss this.
  4. We ensure that all cats in our care have up to date vaccinations, and we retain copies of all documentation. We also check that our feline guests have had recent worm and flea treatments before boarding.
