About our facilities

Ten Lives Cat Centre boasts a 20 room boarding accommodation facility. It is just 5 km outside of Hobart. It offers personalised and attentive care for the most pampered kitties. When you can’t be with them, let us be there instead.

  • Our five-paw accommodation includes cosy resting areas, plentiful heating, tasty meals, and calming classical music.
  • All rooms are individual, and furnished with a multilevel design, providing room to stretch the legs, climb up high off the ground, and a private litter box location.
  • Our facility is a comfortable option for your cat, be it for a few days, or for an extended holiday.

Feel free to visit Ten Lives beforehand and see our boarding rooms for yourself! Our skilled, cat-loving, staff are happy to help.

Boarding Requirements

All cats holidaying at the Centre must be de-sexed, microchipped and all vaccinations must be current. This means that in order to stay with us your cat must have had at least two vaccinations as a kitten and then a vaccination EVERY YEAR of his or her life with no gaps in between.

If you have let the vaccination lapse for more than a year, then your cat is not considered to be fully vaccinated and you would have to revaccinate – a process that takes a month.

General Information with regard to Boarding your cat at the Ten Lives Cat Centre.


  • Vaccinations must be current and within date.
  • The last vaccination due to complete the course must have been given more than 2 weeks prior to boarding with us.
  • Please bring your cat’s vaccination certificate in with your cat so that we can copy it for our records.
  • If vaccinations are not current and within date or proof of completed vaccinations is not provided or are within the 2 week period, your cat will not be accepted for Boarding.


  • Your cat must be microchipped prior to Boarding with us. If your cat is not microchipped we can do this for you for just $25.00

Toys and Blankets etc for Boarding:

  • Please bring a few loved items with your cat.
  • It is good for the cat to have items with familiar smells and toys to play with.
  • Please make sure all items are clearly labelled with your cat’s name.


  • Please pick up your cat between 10.00am and 12.00pm on the day of departure to allow us time to ready the room for another occupant.
  • Late pickup will incur another night’s fees.

Medical Conditions:

  • If your cat has a medical condition please advise us at the time of booking – prior to bringing your cat into the Centre. We are unable to accommodate some medical conditions.
  • We will want to know your cat’s Medical History and if it has any allergies.


  • If your cat is a fussy eater or on a particular diet – please supply food as this reduces the stress for your cat and reduces the risk of tummy upsets.
  • Normal Boarding Fees still apply
