Cat Care, Health and Nutrition

Cats are given Royal Canin Fit.

Every morning we check on the consumption of food and water to monitor their dietary maintenance closely, and we also monitor urinary and bowel motions.

We have a 24-hour vet on call, for any eventuality.


Inspection welcome

We welcome inspection and will happily show you through our cat boarding facility. Come and visit us and see for yourself why our Auckland Cattery are so popular with cat lovers like you. To avoid unnecessary disruption to the dogs boarding with us, we ask that you come only between 10am – 2.30pm weekdays and weekends by appointment.

Long Stay Cats

We encourage first time cats to come for a trial visit. This will help familiarise your cat with the new environment. A first, short stay with us helps to relieve anxiety before your cat comes for a longer stay. They will remember our South Auckland cattery as a fun place to visit until Mum or Dad collects them again. Your best mate will enjoy their holiday with us as much as you will enjoy yours!

Christmas Stays

We have a minimum 7-day stay over the Christmas period: 20 December through to 10 January. We also require a deposit for bookings during this busy holiday month, and payment in full when you bring in your cat to board with us. This deposit is non-refundable unless your booking is cancelled before 1 December.

Auckland Kennel & Cattery caters for cats of all breeds and ages.

Our cat hotel is a large airy space where cats feel safe and comfortable – lots of climbing space, baskets, sheepskins and toys. A large indoor area provides lots of places for your cat to explore or to find a quiet corner to relax.

Our cattery is semi-communal. The covered outdoor conservatory is perfect for day time lounging and exercise, while the warm internal room provides a great place for your cat to relax and soak up the sun.

Your cat has their own individual split-level suite at night. Each cat is individually housed with their bed on one level and litter tray and food on a lower level, adding to their overall comfort.

To ensure the safety, health and comfort of your cat, our cattery is managed to a very high standard. We work hard to make you and your cat happy, and to make the time your cat spends with us as relaxing and comfortable as possible.

Located in South Auckland’s rural Ardmore, we’re very handy to the southern motorway.
