Wishing you a Merry Christmas

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

It has been a fun three months for us settling into our new home and personalizing the Deloraine Cattery in terms of system upgrades, aesthetic changes and producing our own marketing material. Vanessa also visited the local vets, pet stores and other catteries introducing herself and building a support network. We've learnt a lot in the last 3 months and met some wonderful cat owners and kitty cats. 

This is our first newsletter so it is jam packed full of information, including a chance to win you and your cat a weekend away, the date for the next Cause for Paws Pet Expo 2015 and information about my other two businesses I run from here at the Deloraine Cattery. Princess and the Pirate offering children's stylish party supplies; and unique, fun, yet practical superCUTE baby gifts. Next time you're here have a browse in shop or look online.

We'd like to thank you all for the lovely welcome and your continued support. Have a wonderful Christmas and we'll see you all in the New Year!
