Cats and animals mean the world to us. As proud owners of cats, horses and sheep, we know how important your pets are to you, which is why we have devoted our lovely boarding cattery to give your cat a real holiday whilst they are with us. Our wealth of experience and happy guests are evidence of the high reputation that Barndale Boarding Cattery enjoys amongst customers throughout Warkworth and the Auckland area since 1994.
We are proud to offer peaceful and spacious accommodation for your loved cats. Our cat hotel is situated at our home, on our rural farm with rolling countryside 10km from Warkworth. It is the perfect place for your cats to relax and enjoy their holiday.
While your cat is on holiday at our cattery, they will enjoy:
For their protection, we require that all cats boarding with us are vaccinated before boarding at our cattery. Please remember to bring your cat’s vaccination certificate with you when you bring your cat in for their holiday with us.
Our cat hotel is heated in winter and cool in summer. Every cat guest has access to the secured outside area, which overlooks the surrounding countryside for exercise and sunbathing.
We very much welcome viewings as we are very proud of our cat hotel and the standard of care we offer. In fact, we positively encourage you to visit our cattery before boarding to reassure yourself that our cattery is the right one for your pet.
If you have any questions or concerns or would like to tell us about your precious cat, we would love to hear from you. Call us today on (09) 425 9111.
Our pet hotel is open 365 days a year.
"Safe and comfortable surroundings…".
""You're STARS! We have often needed someone to care for our treasured cat, Georgie, over the last nine years and have felt confident with leaving her with Janet and Colin.
They offer a caring home away from home at Barndale in safe and comfortable surroundings.
We have no hesitation in recommending Barndale's loving care, which has at times been needed at very short notice.""
"Provide the best care and facilities...." “"I have been sending my two cats (Lily and Oreo) to Barndale for 7 years now. I live in central Auckland but make the effort to leave my cats with Janet and Colin in Warkworth as they know all the cats by name and provide the best care and facilities.
I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone and would not leave my cats with anyone else."
"Love our cat as much as we do ……." "Barndale was a great find for us. We were told about Janet and Colin about seven years ago by a colleague and haven’t considered anyone else since we first met them and saw their set up.
No request is too much when it comes to your animals, they seem to love our cat as much as we do (and I think our cat loves them more than she loves us!)
We do not hesitate to recommend Janet and Colin to anyone looking for a cattery."
"Perfect grounds, facilities, staff and flexibility …." "We have been taking our cat to Barndale for about 10 years now, because of all the great things about it; the perfect grounds, facilities, cleanliness, staff, reliability, flexibility …..
but the best thing is knowing that Mo-Mo loves it."
"You made the whole process so easy ….""Both Janet and Colin were absolutely amazing. I loved the fact I could deal with both of them over the process and that they understood the love and care we have and want for our animals. There were no problems answering any of my questions. You made the whole process so easy for me and took care of everything. I cannot thank you enough for your Professionalism and understanding during this whole process. Thank you for giving my cat love and cuddles before the flight. My furry friend is loving her new Australian home. I would recommend you to ANYONE who would like to transfer a pet overseas. Definitely great service.
Thank you Thank you Thank you"
"Looking healthier and stockier than he was when he arrived ...""Thank you so much for looking after Captain Kirk for seven months. You have kept him safe from ‘motorway adventures’. It’s nice to see him looking healthier and stockier than he was when he arrived at Barndale.
Paul and I have been able to relax knowing he is well looked after and has such a large outdoor playroom to play in. Thank you also for letting us visit often."
