With spacious play areas, comfortable sleeping arrangements, and stunning artwork throughout, your cat is sure to feel right at home. Trust us to provide the best care for your cat, and let us take the worry out of your next holiday.

If you’re in need of a high-quality boarding cattery to care for your beloved feline, then you won’t be disappointed with Catz at Ashwood. Located in Shelly Park, Howick, Auckland, our cattery has been operating continually for over 70 years. We are proud to offer a space that is safe, secure, and comfortable for all cats, regardless of breed or age.

At Catz at Ashwood, we understand that leaving your furry friend in someone else’s care can be a daunting prospect. That’s why we take the utmost care to ensure that your cat’s stay with us is as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Our cattery boasts large play areas, with many spacious spots for your cat to roam around and explore. They’ll love watching the birds in our enclosed garden, and can stretch their claws on our Kat Attack Vegas scratching tower, designed especially for us by the wonderful ComfyPet. Our New Yorker Cat Tree provides plenty of nooks to sleep in and spaces to climb – a fabulous feline dream come true.

We believe that our cattery should be an extension of your home. That’s why we’ve gone to great lengths to create a space that is both welcoming and artistically pleasing. Our playrooms are covered in stunning Doug Ford forest murals, which offer beautiful scenes for your cat to unwind and enjoy the day. For those looking for a bit of quiet time, our fully covered and secure sunroom is the perfect spot for daytime relaxation and soaking up some sunshine.

At night, your cat will have their own separate split-level suite. Each individual room has a bed on one level and a food and litter tray on a lower level, in order to increase the comfort of each cat. We understand that all cats are different and have their own unique needs, which is why we’re happy to work with you to provide a personalized experience for your cat.

Our cattery is run to a very high standard, and we’re dedicated to guaranteeing the security, well-being, and comfort of every cat that stays with us. We take great pride in the care that we provide and put in a lot of effort to please both you and your cat. Our experienced team of professionals will ensure that your cat’s stay with us is as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.

We’re located in Shelly Park, Howick, which is a nice easy drive for East Aucklanders.
