Welcome to Purradise Manor, a cattery that is run mainly by myself (Kirsten) but also with the help of my Husband Chris and my two sons Jack and Tom. We are all animal lovers, and our two teenage boys have grown up with cats from babies and enjoy spending time and playing with our cattery residents. We have our 5 own cats Mary – who enjoys mostly sunbathing and sleeping in her twilight years and Betty, Sylvie, Enid and Pixie – both whom we fostered and then adopted. We also have a number of chickens who roam around during the day (some who are now pensioners) along with our two adopted ex racing greyhounds Hank and Ronnie (who are very cat friendly) and our bearded dragon Viserion who is residing in the Cattery reception. I have always had cats since a child even when I was living in London I adopted a stray cat! We almost always have foster cats or kittens in the house in which we care for until they are ready for adoption with the SPCA. If you are looking at adopting another cat or kitten ask us as we may have the purrfect one for you!
I have attended a Pet First Aid course with Pet first Aid and training NZ, covering CPR, choking, seizures, shock, cuts and grazes etc. I have also worked in health for numerous years including working as a Paramedic and Anaesthetic Technician in which basic care and first aid can be crossed over to pets. I have also done a paper on Companion Animals through the Pacific Institute.
We are all looking forward to meeting your cat/s and getting to know them during their stay with us.
