Paws A While Boarding Cattery is a purpose built boutique cattery located in St. Johns, Auckland.

The Cattery has an open warm feel, with the cats able to look out over wide playing fields, and a view of the Tamaki Estuary. It is truly a remarkable spot for your cat to laze away their day whilst soaking up the sun’s rays in the fresh air.

Being a Semi Communal Cattery each cat has its own sleeping quarters and can dine on a variety of premier foods. There is plenty of opportunity through the day to sprawl out on the North facing deck and receive lots of cuddles.

For your cats comfort, the accommodation is warm in winter and cool in summer, with a heat pump regulating the temperature. Paws a While Cattery is a safe and secure cat hotel for your pet.

Fabulous. My 14 year cat had never been in a cattery, he settled well after a few days, and was so relaxed and happy during his few week stay while renovating our house. It was the best decision to have the skills and care of Kelly looking after him. Highly recommend

First stay for our cat who usually gets very stressed in a cattery. All the cats there seem relaxed and well looked after. Our cat has come home after a week’s stay very relaxed and happy to be home again. We will be back again. Thanks Kelly and team!
