BaristaCats Cafe is home to 13 wonderful rescue cats with varying degrees of ongoing health needs

Main image

Located in the heart of Auckland’s CBD, BaristaCats’ mission is to provide a refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life for humans and animals alike. If you’re looking for a space to chill out, have a coffee and make some fluffy friends then BaristaCats Café is the place for you.

We are home to thirteen fabulously furry residents and up to four visiting or foster cats who love to mingle and play. Our focus is on hard-to-adopt-out cats so many of our cats are older and have special needs, but you'll find they don't let age or disability slow them down!

Having so many unique rescue cats means a number of things.

Among the cats there are nine different diets, including 4 Hill's Prescription Diets to help manage some of the health problems they face.

Our focus on older and differently abled cats means that at times our veterinary bills are higher than planned.

In the past two years our wonderful donors have helped us to provide prompt treatment to four of our resident cats.

This includes around $1500 of dental treatment for Zuul, more than $2000 of emergency care for Lady Mary Clawley who has chronic recurrent pancreatitis, and over $3000 in palliative care for Wednesday who sadly crossed over the rainbow bridge in April 2018 (More information on each of these cases is available in our updates).

Most recently our eldest cat in residence, Orson, underwent over $1000 of liver function tests and dental surgery.

We are constantly in awe of your generosity and are incredibly grateful for your continued support.

BaristaCats is absolutely committed to providing the best care and quality of life for our cats who have come from Franklin Cat Rescue, Paws 4 Life, SPCA Auckland and 9 Lives Orphanage. We have a thorough welfare plan that we have developed with assistance from the SPCA and to ensure that BaristaCats operates to the best possible standard at all times.

Use of funds

All funds go towards the continued care and welfare of the cats

Banksy is going to be toothless  18 September 2019

Thank you to those who have donated to our wonderful furry family's dental care.

Many of you will know our lovely old man Banksy as the loudest purr'er in the room, and soon he will be purring away with a few less teeth!

Banksy has spent almost 4 years with the BaristaCats family now and we know he has found his way in to the hearts of everyone he meets with his big purr, fluffy belly and regular bleps. In the next few weeks Banksy will be getting the last couple of teeth removed as they are getting a bit sore. Don't worry he will still be able to eat all of his yummy Hill's food!

This removal will be around $400 and any contributions would be greatly appreciated!

Love and purrs,

Banksy and the team at BaristaCats
