Happy Cats is an in-home cat-feeding service run by a family of cat lovers.
Mum, Sally Frewin and her two children, Zylah (11) and Enzo (9) came up with the idea a couple of years ago and the cat-loving trio have been busy feeding cats around town ever since.
The idea was sparked when they were asked to feed a friend’s cat while they went on holiday. The cat didn’t like going to the cattery, so this was a great solution.
“Cats are very territorial creatures. They don’t tend to enjoy having to stay away from their homes,” says Sally.
“We’ve had great feedback from our clients who tell us that they get great peace of mind knowing that we’re feeding their cat and checking their houses, and their cats are really happy when they arrive back home.”
As a long-term volunteer at the SPCA, Sally has lots of animal experience. Zylah is in charge of playing and patting and Enzo enjoys navigating between each house.
The Happy Cats trio will also do additional tasks around the house, by prior arrangement, including putting rubbish bins out, clearing letterboxes and watering plants. They’ve been known to look after other animals, such as goldfish and rabbits too!
