Here’s what our customers say about us!

"We bring our boy all the way from Whanganui to stay at the Awahuri Cat Motel. What I really like about the cattery is the very clean and spacious environment with lots of indoor and outdoor options for the cats to hang out. Sadie and Lynn are both very friendly and proficient – and it feels like you are dropping your cat off to a trusted friend to look after instead of a cattery!

What keeps me coming back is that my boy is himself when we bring him home (other catteries he comes home really grumpy and it takes a few days for him to come right) and he smells clean and normal. I highly recommend the Awahuri Cat Motel to everyone who loves their cat but likes going on holiday guilt free knowing that they are being well looked after”.

Pauline Duncan

"We have used Sadie and the Awahuri Cat Hotel for over 4 years. Sadie is lovely to deal with and really cares for all the cats.We especially like the double cage it means that both of our cats can have their own space together. We have no worries at all leaving the girls, and we relax knowing they are well looked after.We would thoroughly recommend Sadie and the Awahuri Cat Hotel to anyone wishing to leave their cat in a safe, clean, warm and happy environment.

"The Awahuri Cat Motel is a fantastic place to take our 2 boys, even if you have an emergency and it’s last minute. The boys take no time at all to settle in when they go, which means they feel at ease. They get to roam around and make new friends, but can also relax in private on their own. Great place with great people."

Lynne Hill

"I have 2 cats and they have spent a lot of time at the Awahuri Cat Motel over the last few years. One is extremely shy and her special needs are met. Second cat is a large softy, loves food and all the attention he gets. Sadie and Lynn are fully committed to do their best for all the cats in their care. The cattery is spotless, large separate cages for each cat, big play area broken into rooms and is sunny. I have no hesitation to recommend them to friends who are equally happy using their services".

Sue Elliott

"Banjo and Cleuso have been going out to stay at the Awahuri Cat Motel for several years now - they seem to settle into their visit very quickly when I drop them off, and are always sleeping peacefully in a corner when I go to pick them up. They always seem to settle down very quickly once I get them home - it really does seem to be one of the best places I have ever left my cats when I have to go away".
