At Cat Utopia our staff are fully trained in all areas of health and wellness in cat care, have extensive industry experience and are pure-hearted cat lovers themselves. Our family here at Cat Utopia treat all our guests with the same love and care that we do our own pets, so we would like you to meet the people who will be taking care of your cat during their holidays.
Amanda started out working in the pet industry 24 years ago when she and her friend started Guardian Angels, a pet-sitting business, where they would feed customers’ pets in their own homes. Amanda found that she could not guarantee the care and safety of the cats due to the roaming nature of felines.
Amanda had a dream to create a luxury cat boarding facility to change the concept of cat boarding. Over time, she has created the leading luxury boutique cat resort in Australia with Cat Utopia Resort & Spa. She completed her Kennel and Catteries Operations qualification at Tafe with very high marks.
From 21 years of working in the cattery, Amanda understands and knows how cats behave and think. Amanda has profound knowledge in the feline world and can help even the most difficult of cases.
Amanda is now a grandma to little Laura and Madeline, when she is not working in the Cattery, she is babysitting Laura & Madeline and loving it. She also has fur babies of her own in the form of two whippets called Benson and Bella, and three chickens.
Cat Utopia is a family owned and operated business and since Amanda is my Mum, I have been involved in caring for the kitty cats for a very long time :). Having worked with cats for so long I have a great understanding of how cats behave and how to keep them happy. I have always loved animals and I could not see myself in any other field of work. I find it so very rewarding making our furry guests happy and relaxed.
I have two puppies, a whippet named Milo and a border collie named Bailey, and Alfie the Red Point Ragdoll featured above along with birds and lots of chickens and, yes, they all have names. I would have a farm if my Husband would let me. Rebecca and Husband Gary have little girl named Laura who they adore.
