Courtney Cameron DVN
Cat Sitter / Veterinary Nurse / Owner
September'21 - April'22
Hello! I am Courtney, a qualified Veterinary Nurse of 15 years with a huge love for cats.
I am married with two gorgeous wee boys, Lincoln and Zeke, who are aged 5 and 3, and we are due to welcome the final member of our human family in September'21.
I have previously worked in small animal clinics in both London and Auckland. I worked at The Auckland Cat Clinic in Mount Eden prior to relocating to London, and whilst living in London, I was the surgical nurse at Kitten to Cat, Londons only cat only clinic.
We have 2 furbabies, Lennox and Leila.
Lennox is a 3 year old DSH Ginger and White Tabby. She was found living underneath the deck of a West Auckland flat by the occupants and they called Feline Fanatics seeking help. She was found to be underweight however, she was in very good health, well socialised and house trained. Lennox and I quickly formed a lovely bond and the decision was made to welcome her in to our little family as her forever home. She now rules our household and has us wrapped around her little paws!
Leila is a 1 year old Bi-colour Ragdoll. She was found living it rough in a barn up north along with her brother and was taken to a local animal shelter. She had a severe case of cat flu and lost her right eye as a result of the infection. With loads of interest being shown to adopt her brother, I felt I was the right person to offer this wee girl a home. She joined our family just before lockdown and after a few trips to the vet to sort her eye infection, vacinations, spey and microchip, she has blossomed in to a very energetic, loving ball of fluff!
I have 2 other cats, Tobias and Jed, both aged 15 years, whom I acquired during my Veterinary Nursing training. They reside with my parents and are waited on hand and foot.
I am a fully confessed cat lover and believe cats should be provided only the best of care when their families and loved ones are away from home. As they are home bodies who enjoy human company (sometimes on their own terms!) and can be easily spooked by new surroundings or sudden change, I am a great supporter of in-home pet care.

Cat Sitter / Veterinary Nurse
Hello! I am Rebecca, a qualified Veterinary Nurse.
I hold a certificate in Animal Management and for me it's all about the cats!
I have an extensive background working with cats and have previously run my own in-home pet feeding company prior to moving out of Auckland. Having missed caring for cats in their own homes, I am excited to be working alongside Courtney at Feline Fanatics.
I currently have one furbaby, Mouse...but I plan to add another furry face very soon!
Mouse is a 1 year old DSH Tortoiseshell. She was 1 of 8 kittens advertised publicly from an unexpected litter and I put my hand up to offer her a loving home. She has blossomed in to a beautiful girl, full of affection and I love her to bits.
Having previously worked in catteries, especially over the busier periods (Christmas / New Year / Easter), I believe in-home cat care is preferable on many levels. Having the chance to leave your cats at home surrounded by familiarity is by far the best option.
In-home care also provides a good level of home security which is a great bonus!
Nicola King DVN
Cat Sitter / Veterinary Nurse
Hello! I am Nicola, a qualified Junior Veterinary Nurse with a great passion for cats.
I currently work part time for a cat only Veterinary Clinic located on the North Shore of Auckland and started working for Feline Fanatics at the beginning of December '20.
I have previous experience working in catteries, I have fostered many kittens and volunteered in the cat unit for a local charity. I have also completed further study in feline behaviour and medicine.
I have 3 furbabies, Niko, Ben, and Peter.
Niko is a 6 year old DSH Grey Tabby. I adopted him in 2015 from a charity I was volunteering at in Nelson. He has travelled with me from the bottom of the South Island to the middle of the North Island (and everywhere in-between!). Niko was the first furbaby to join my family.
Ben is a 5 year old DMH Ginger and White Tabby. I adopted him off his previous owner who could no longer keep him. He was an incredibly shy boy when I met him and spent a considerable amount of time hiding under my bed. With a lot of love and patience, Ben has turned in to a very loving and gentle boy. He may only be 5 years of age but has the nature of an older gentleman.
Peter is a 10 month old DSH Brown Tabby. I fostered two kittens who were found on the street tangled in fishing wire, one of them was Peter. He is my foster fail! He had an eye infection and required treatment several times a day. His eye healed nicely however, he had developed a fear of humans. This limited the ability for him to be placed up for adoption, so I offered him a home to help build his confidence and trust. Needless to say, he has come a long way in just a short while.
I love working for Feline Fanatics as I am a huge advocate for putting cats and their needs first. I believe in-home care allows cats to remain in their own environment, surrounded by familiarity which naturally helps cats to feel at ease. Stress free in-home care is a must!
We would love to get to know your feline friend and provide the best possible care for
them while you are away.
We look forward to hearing from you!
