Ava & Archer Cattery Boarding

Ava & Archer now offer boutique boarding with only 17 available enclosures and a large, furnished family room.  We believe that cats should be able to move freely, have space to jump, or to hide, or to be able to watch TV, or look out of the windows at the birds, or the clouds if they like.  At Ava & Archer all of that is possible. Our enclosures are all walk in,  with cat tree's, scratching poles and enrichment inside and outside the enclosures.  All located in our air conditioned, carbon filtered premises.  Each cat gets outside of the enclosure time, a chance to sit on the sofa with our staff and watch TV, or have a run around the playroom, this services is included in our costs, not an added extra.  Each enclosure can take 3 cats from the same home.

Our family room is large enough to accommodate up to 5 cats from the same home.

We are Licensed by Domestic Animal Services in the ACT for Overnight Boarding and Daycare Services for our grooming.
