Our story


Your feline friends are welcome to our little boarding cattery in Mamaku, Rotorua. Your host, Rachel, will ensure they are comfortable during their stay here at Mamaku Cattery Rotorua. 

Rachel has a background working in the vet industry (people-facing) so has great general knowledge and experience dealing with animals (and humans). Creating a cattery has allowed her to continue offering a service to the community, work from her home, and draw on her previous knowledge of running a kennel in Rotorua.
