Jo hopes to give all our customers comfort knowing that their valued pets are in the best possible hands. She wants every visitor to When the Cat”s Away Cattery to have a great experience
Gareth has experience from a management background in the port industry. He has worked from the shop floor to the boardroom and is not afraid to get stuck in to work. Gareth will give his all to achieve the best outcomes for the cattery. Gareth is compassionate friendly and caring and will treasure your loved ones while they are boarding.
We are family oriented and bring our two young adult daughters with us. Casey and Nia are also both really looking forward to be involved with the cattery. The girls understand the important place your cat holds in your and therefore, our family.
