Alby the Cat


Hello, I’m Alby the big white cat, resident cat of the Avalon Cattery (or Avalon & McIntyre Park Cattery, to be exact). Although most people believe Sue and Peter to be the ones who run our friendly cattery, it’s actually me who is in charge. So, I’d like to extend to you a very big welcome!

Alby the cat meets visitors to the cattery I have been at Avalon Cattery for many years now, firstly as a young boarder who ended up staying when I became a little too “playful” for the young children at my home. The problem was easily solved when my owners asked if I could stay here – which suited me perfectly – and Sue and Peter said yes, so it worked out all round. After my initial settling in period, I started to go out and around the cattery with small ventures. As I got more used to my new surroundings these ventures extended into longer periods and now I have the total run of the property until closing time.

Sue and Peter think I spend my days climbing the trees that are abundant here around the cattery and although I can often be seen racing across the grass and launching myself on the odd gum tree, I am in actual fact, perusing the grounds and ensuring that our guests are comfortable and happy. With cattery suites that are as spacious as ours, I know our guests will be just as much on holiday as their owners! However, it is very tiring work, so when I am finished my rounds, I lie in the sun on the front verandah which is a wonderful way to relax.Naturally I love to give visitors a warm welcome, so when they arrive, I take it upon myself to meet and greet them personally and walk them down the path to the cattery – unless, of course, I am enjoying a catnap!

I invite you to come and visit us…we have beautiful grounds and excellent facilities – AND we are open 364 days a year!

Although we are located in Lara, between Geelong and Werribee, we have customers come to us from suburbs much further away. Below, is a complete list of them.

See you soon!
