Welcome to Cats Whiskers Cattery

We are a small, friendly, family run Cattery, situated just off the main motorway south of Fairfield on the sunny slopes of Saddle Hill, in a rural location just 10km south of Dunedin City, close proximity and en route to or from Dunedin International Airport.

Our ethos of individual care and attention is given to every pet.With regular grooming, this allows a natural bond to grow and your pet to feel more relaxed and settled. Happy Pet = Happy Owner.

We are so proud of the facilities here at Cats Whiskers Cattery and we invite you to come and see them for yourself. Donna would love to show you around and discuss how we can ensure your cats stay is a happy and healthy one.

Our indoor cattery provides your cat with all the creature comforts that it would enjoy if it was at home, including central heating, toys, windows and activity area.

You’ll have peace of mind that your cat is safe and happy because everything about Cats Whiskers Cattery was designed so that your cat will receive superior care and personalised attention. Our Pet Care assistants, usually Veterinary Students, hand-picked for their love of pets are always here with your pet and are trained in all aspects of personalised pet care. Including handling to ensure your pet’s well-being and safety. Veterinarians are always on-call.

Recent redevelopment of the complex is to the highest standard which enables us to:
