Whangarei Cat Boarding

9 July 2011

Dear Rachael,

I’m just writing to say thank you for all the care you have given to my cats over the last few years. I have never worried when they have been left with you.

As one of my cats, Max, is a highly dependant diabetic, who needs insulin injections twice a day and close monitoring, it isn’t easy for me to go away and leave him behind. As a vet nurse I am very particular about the care my cats get and Max can be difficult to manage at times due to his various health problems. My partner, a local vet in town and I don’t go away often for this reason however it is reassuring to know that you give him the best care possible when we do.

I have no problems recommending you and Deloraine to people who ask me to recommend a cattery to them. I know that you give them the best possible care and attention and that they are in safe and capable hands when staying with you.

Best Wishes

Whangarei Cattery – Deloraine Holiday Retreat for Cats

Semi Individual Unit

Here at the Deloraine Cattery we have holiday options to suit all cats, from private suites to Semi Individual units or semi communal as some call them.

Despite what some people may think…… The Deloraine’s Semi Individual facilities are awesome. In this part of the cattery your cat will have his or her own private unit where they spend the night and are fed in the morning and again in the evenings before being safely tucked up for bed. Each unit is made up of two rooms the 1st being their bedroom and the 2nd their bathroom. During the day cats have access to a large lounge area, with heaps of beds, chairs, toys and climbing trees.  

Semi Individual Unit

 This area can house up to 23 guests, but on average we would have no more than 10-12 cats at any one time, we find a lot of our regular customers use this part of our facility. One of the most common question asked about this type of cattery is. “Do the cats fight in the cattery”? I can assure you the answer to that is..  No they do not…Cats are territorial animals and will generally fight to defend their home, so because the cattery is neutral territory there is nothing to fight for. We closely monitor all the guests staying in the cattery to ensure they are settling in with minimal stress. If for any reason your cat does not enjoy being in our semi Individual area they will be upgraded to a private suite at no extra charge.   

The shared lounge area, has plenty of toys to play with, climbing frames and cosy spots to curl up and have a snooze in the afternoon sun. The large opening windows let in lots of fresh air.

Don’t Forget There is only 1 place your cats should be while you’re away
And this Whangarei Cattery is it.

The Deloraine Cattery is a "Cats" only facilityCat Boarding facilities vary in construction, from the basic wooden cabins to the more modern up market penthouse units with private outdoor verandahs, heated blankets and TVs. Whilst this is re-assuring to see a modern building facility, the care behind the scenes is more critical. It is extremely important that you feel confident that the staff managing the cattery enjoy being with the cats. It is crucial that they are well trained, caring and capable and most importantly that they have adequate time to dedicate to the cats in their care. Be wary of facilities that claim to be ‘AgriQuality‘, ‘Vet  Approved’ or even claim to have a ‘Vet Excellence certificate’, as these programes are non-existent and facility owners are misleading the pubilc.

Everything we do at the Deloraine Cattery is for the good of the Cats.

• At the Deloraine Cattery you will see the cats show an interest in visitors and staff. This would indicate the cats are settled and happy.
• This is a “Cats” only facility. We are not a “Kennel”- the noise of dogs barking can be very stressful for cats – particularly if they are confined. Animal welfare organizations recommend that catteries are not attached to kennels.
• Our private and family rooms are a decent size, with separate run areas to allow the cats space to exercise enjoy the sun and be less stressed.
• The cattery is well ventilated, to ensure good airflow and reduce the risk of cross infection from other cats.
• The rooms are also insulated, and are warm and dry with heaters to provide extra warmth in the winter.
• The cattery buildings are secure, with all outdoor areas secured with amplimesh security panels, all exists and entry points are on a double door system to prevent cats escaping.
• The litter trays are changed daily or more if needed. All dirty litter trays are cleaned with Trigene to kill any germs and refilled with fresh litter.
• Fresh water is available to the cats at all times.
• Each of our rooms has a view, toys, scratch posts and or ladders to provide stimulation.
• We do brush the cats daily if your cat lets us, however we are not  professional cat groomers and you will need to book this service if your cat requires it.
• Only cats from same household share accommodation in our private and family suites. If you are boarding more than one cat, and they don’t get on well, ask if they can have their own rooms.
• The Deloraine Cattery uses the Onerahi veterinary practice, as this is handy to us and they will come to the cattery if need be.private and family suites
• It is required that all customers leave us with contact details for you and someone contactable in an emergency. If your cat is elderly or suffers from a medical problem it is recommended you let your vet know that you are boarding your cat and inform them of how far your wish treatments to go should your animal’s health decline.
• We feed top Quality Royal Canin Cat food, how ever we also have a number of other verities of soft food. If your cat is on a prescription diet you will need to bring this food along with your cat.
• We recommend you bring along some of your cats favorite toys and bedding (unwashed as this will remind him of home).
• We require that all cats have current vaccinations, and documents showing this must be produced upon arrival
• We also require all cats are upto date with Flea and worming.
When transporting your cat to the Deloraine Cattery, we recommend you use a strong and sturdy purpose built cat carrier with a solid base so that your cat cannot escape. It is important that your cat feels comfortable – line the carrier with newspaper or a towel and ensure that there is adequate ventilation. To prevent your cat from becoming travel sick, it is best not to feed him before your journey.

 
The Deloraine Cattery is a top Quality facility and books up fast over the holiday periods, so you will need to make your bookings well in advance.
