I live on the premises of the Cattery and Kennels, so the animals are never alone.2
Small Staff Compliment
I employ 2 workers, my kennel hand Grant and Melta who assists me in the cattery.3
Every pet is handled with love and care and receives an abundance of attention.
A few words about Chindys...
“One day I was counting the cats and I absent-mindedly counted myself.” ―Bobbie Ann Mason
I have always had a passion for cats, and started breeding Chinchilla cats after getting my very first kittens in 2002. Chindy’s Cattery came into existence 2007 after relocating from Durban to Gauteng. I was not working full time, and wanted to meet other cat loving people. I felt that my love of cats should extend to caring for other people’s cats too. Chindy’s is a combination of my name, Cindi, and the Chinchilla cats I breed.
The cattery started with the 10 pen indoor cattery, and in 2012 I added 5 wendy houses with enclosed grassed gardens.
Every cat that comes into the cattery is treated as one of my own – each cat receiving individual daily petting, grooming and lots of love. All cats are fed to owner specifications, and I will also administer any medication a cat may require.
The kennels came into being when I realised that cattery clients would drop their cats off with me, then take their dogs to a different establishment. A regular client asked me to look after her dog, and one thing led to another and 14 kennels were put up. Every dog is treated as one of our own, receiving lots of love and attention from myself and kennel hand, Grant.
