Rachael & Mr B at Whangarei Cattery The Deloraine
Rachael a true care-giver

People often ask me, “what did you do before you came to the Cattery Rachael”? 

I grew up on the Family farm in the Waikato, when my family moved North I started working at the  Bendon factory in Kamo. It was a job and I was only young. I met a lot of new friends working  there over the years, got my first car stolen from in the car park while I was at work, brought my first house, life was good. I left there to have my first Child and the Bendon factory closed not long after that.  I’ve had another Child since, studied a little and had a few part-time jobs, merchandising, Bar work,  just a couple of hour here and there, to earn a bit more money.

When my youngest daughter went off to school I decided it was time to get a job, I needed something 9-3 so I could still be there for my girls. My Mum who is a Care giver for Home Support North said I should try there, so I did.  For four and a half years I worked with the elderly. The pay was sad, but this was one of the most rewarding  things I have ever done, and I met some of the most wonderful people. I wasn’t just the cleaner and care giver, I was a friend, someone to talk to, in some cases I was the only person they saw all week. I’d clean up the house, make the bed, and cook meals, some even needed help with showering.  I miss that life sometimes and the people… they are gone now, but I am happy to have been part of their lives even if it was only for a short time.

So now I’m here at what I believe is, Whangarei’s Best Cattery, The Deloraine….. Wow…. I sometimes need to pinch myself, from care-giver to Business women, but we all know at the end of the day I will always be a care-giver, only difference is I now look after Cats and I Love it. I’m not an academic, as you tell by my Blog posts, nor do I need money to be truely happy, although it keeps the bank manager off my back. I love my Family and friends, It makes me feel good knowing I’ve done the best I can, and to help make someone elses life better for it.

It doesn’t matter whether you use a Cattery with private rooms or Semi Individual where your cat shares with others during the day; there is always a small chance your cat may get sick. Just like when we take our kids to play group, there is a possibility they may get head lice or even a cold, And as do play groups, Cattery owners do all they can to minimize the rick of your cat getting sick, after all, it our lively hood.

All Cat Boarding facilities in New Zealand are required to have some kind of Isolation unit or facility; this is a room where a sick cat can be kept on its OWN with NO other animals, this is to stop the spread of any viruses etc.

It is standard procedure at The Deloraine Cattery. Should a cat show ANY signs of illness to immediately have the animal placed into Isolation so he/she can be monitored. A vet is then called, and if need be the cat is taken to the veterinarian as soon as possible. When the vet has given the all clear the cat is then returned to the cattery, however it will then spend the remainder of its stay in the Isolation facility, (unless otherwise advised by the vet)

Owners or emergency contacts are only called if required; this would mean the animal is very ill or we simply can not have the animal back at the cattery, and you will need to arrange to have the cat collected from the Vets.

So why don’t we call the owners first?

  1. We feel it is far more important to call the vet first; after all it may not be anything to worry about.
  2. What can you do (the owner) from half way around the world? Except worry.
  3. Lets say your cat was in a fight at home, 2 days later you drop him off at the cattery, and off you go on holiday. mean while an abscess has started to devalop on your cat, where it had been bitten by the cat it was figthing with at home days before, the abscess then pops… I will do my best to keep the wound clean however your cat will need a shot of antibiotics, so off we go to the vet …. I will not phone you while you are on holiday to tell you this, as your cat is fine.
  4. When you leave your cats at the cattery, the terms and conditions clearly states that… we reserve the right to refer your cat for veterinary attention should this, in our opinion be necessary. The owner shall be responsible for all costs incurred.

Most cats are very happy and settle into the cattery within a few hours, and you must keep in mind it is not always the facilities staff or owner at fault if cats fall ill, think of it this way…. you could always leave your cat at home alone… where they can get sick  from the stress of being left on their own, fight with the neighbours cats, run away, get hit by a car……. etc   sorry but that’s the facts. “Don’t Risk Leaving Your Cats Home Alone”.

The Cattery is the only place your cat should stay while you’re away
