Amanda Sweeting ~ Business Owner
Amanda started out working in the pet industry 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 over 25 years of working in the Cat Boarding / Sitting Industry, 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.
Rebecca Webb ~ Nannie and Administration
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.
Amelia Smith ~ Nannie
Amelia has Certificate 2 and 3 in Animals
My deam has always been to make animals lives the best they can be. I have 2 dogs that are both rescues Aria a Foxy x and Marlee a Kelpie. Giving them a warm home from seeing what they had come from was a dream come true. From that moment I realised I wanted to work with animals. I wanted to be with animals on a daily basis but in a place I can make their time with me Fun and Playful. Getting a job at Cat Utopia was perfect for me spending days with cats and making their stay comfortable, fun and enjoyable.
Danika Bellette ~ Nannie and Administration
My name is Danika Bellette, I am 21 years old and have grown up around animals whilst having lots of family pets! I am lucky enough to have the pleasure of owning my very handsome dog named rebel, and a sulphur crested cockatoo named bobby. Whilst looking after my animals at home, i than went on to studying animal care and further discovered that there really is no better feeling, then coming home and being greeted at the door by a big fury, cuddly ball of love! The heart warming feeling of joy and happiness that all animals both big and small bring into our lives, compares to no other. There unconditional, loving nature is what makes me so passionate about providing the same care and love for all animals, as they do for us. Whilst in my spare time I am looking after my animals at home, There isn’t anything that I would love to do more than put all of my knowledge and passion for animals, with all of the beautiful animals we care for at cat utopia!
