Judith Atkinson

Dear Barbara and Ian,
Having known you both for over twenty years and been the proud owner of two of your birman cats "Ming" and "Misty", I have also used your cattery when going on holiday. Both of them always came home in splendid condition after the first class treatment and loving care recieved from both of you. It was always a pleasure picking them up to see how well they both looked.

Len & Brenda Hendry, Auckland

We have used Appycat Cattery for 14 years now, and Barbara and Ian have always used minimum fuss and maximum care with our two treasures.

Dear Barbara and Ian,
Seven years ago we left it to the last minute to book our cat Jayne into a cattery.We were so lucky that you were recommended to us by another cattery and you had a vacancy.We've been coming back ever since because Appycat is so clean and has a lovely environment.
It's worth the drive to Kumeu just to have peace of mind.When we go on holiday we know that Jayne is safe and well cared for and she returns looking glossy and healthy. It's like summer camp for her.
Thanks for all the years of personal service.

Murray and Joan Thurston

Just a short note to say thank you for once again looking after our two Burmese cats, Tigger and Ollie. As you know we've been coming to you for 10 years now and the cats always seem to enjoy their holiday. Your place is always so clean and tidy with lots of spaces inside and out. It's certainly 5-Star.

We always know that Bella is going to get the very best care when she stays at Appycat Cattery.

Nancy Ferris, West Harbour.

During the past 20 years all of my cats have stayed only at Appycat, many many times. I choose to send them there because I know that with the immaculately clean and hygienic surroundings, along with a nutritious diet, they are well cared for,safe and loved. Barbara and Ian are very professional in their attitude to their customers, as well as always so welcoming to their "special guests". I certainly recommend Appycat for all cats. Only the best is good enough for my siamese.

We have known Barbara & Ian Dutton of Appycat Boarding Cattery for many years. After trying numerous different catteries around Auckland many years ago, we luckily found Barbara & Ian, and despite it being a little further to drive from where we live, we have never considered another place since then.

Our cat Binky, who lived to a grand old. age of 18 last April, for over 12 years has stayed almost every Xmas for 3 weeks plus and often for shorter stays during the year also. Binky loved it at Appycat and always came back home contented and happy. She would get 'special' attention if she needed it and there was always good sound advice and reports regarding her health and welfare. In the latter years, as Binky got older and a bit more frail, she was looked after extremely well, getting cuddles and love, and personal attention so that we always felt very confident to leave her in their good hands.

Barbara & Ian were also very fond of their guest cats and the atmosphere on the farm was always quiet and peaceful and stress-free. The enclosure was very roomy, clean and provided lots of outside fresh air - the best we have seen. They always maintained high standards in their running of the facilities, including high quality food, and the monitoring of vaccination status of the cats staying etc. We found them to be very professional in their dealings and knowledge of cats as well as very very nice people and so we thoroughly recommend Appycat for your cat.

The Birman Mummy - Carole Fraser

8 years ago we came along to Appycat and chose our wee fur baby with the fluffiest of tails - her crowning glory! Since then "Madison" has become a regular visitor to her second home with Barbara and Ian at Appycat. She has stayed for 1 week and up to 5 weeks over that time and always comes home looking so well.
For us it is wonderful to have such caring people who truly care for Madison while she is with them, The quality of the cattery and cleanliness is a real credit to Barbara and Ian. What would we do without them to care for our cats.

I have used the Appycat Boarding Cattery for the last 4 years due to their high quality boarding facilities and excellent service.
The superior standard of food and cleanliness of the cattery ensure my cats are kept in good health. The cats also receive regular attention from the owners to make their stay as comfortable as possible, and the service is always friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Appycat Cattery to anyone who expects the best for their cat.

David and Christina Neil

Knowing that our cats are being well cared for when we are on holiday overseas gives us peace of mind.

Fletcher and Cleo have been boarded with Appycat now for the last 6 years. They are always well fed, pampered and groomed daily and enjoy being spoken to by name. They are relaxed when we pick them up again at the end of our holidays and settle back into home life very quickly. Boarding at Appycat is like being in their own home as they get plenty of care and attention.

Barbara and Ian provide excellent service and are always friendly and helpful.

We would recommend Appycat to any cat owner looking for a safe and caring environment for their pet/s.

Over the last 4 years we have used Appycat Boarding Cattery to look after our British Blue cat [our pride and joy]. We have been delighted in the manner Appycat has looked after him and therefore we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Appycat.
