Villa Kitty is a kitten & cat rescue and rehoming Clinic in Bali. This clinic provides crisis care, long term care, medical care for the cats of Bali and endeavours to find homes for all cats once healed and ready to be rehomed.
We have supported Villa Kitty since it's inception and believe it is the best & cleanest cat shelter we have visited ever, we hope you will want to support Villa Kitty too. Villa Kitty receives no government funding and relies on donations from kind people. All cats are sterilised and vaccinated before rehomed.
Any Australian who has holidayed in Bali knows about its famous street dogs. Organisations such as the Bali Animal Welfare Association (BAWA) and the Bali Dog Adoption Rehabilitation Centre (BARC) have been established to improve the welfare of these animals and adopt them to loving homes.
The Villa Kitty Purrfect Family
"From our first days of just three caretakers, our two vet assistants, Kadek and Jopi, and myself, we have grown to twenty three staff!
The Villa Kitty veterinarian team is led by one of Bali’s most respected vet surgeons, Drh Karnata, with Drh Isa and Drh Sinta caring for all our sheltered cats and kittens.
Our seven vet assistants who cover 24 hour shifts are Kadek, Jopi, Ketut, Liong, Komang, Nyoman, Gede Artha who doubles as our part time admin assistant. He is a very diligent young man who works hard to ensure all our records are up to date and the staff get paid on time.
Our famous chef, Mbak Eka, not only manages our kitchen and prepares the meals for our cats, kittens and dogs, but she is also the talent behind the wonderful Villa Kitty lunches held in our beautiful gardens every Sunday. Mbak Eka is ably assisted by Ibu Made who are also part of our five staff cleaning team, along with Bu Tutsih, Ibu Ketut, and Ibu Ketut Pindang (Little Fish), Ketut Putri, Kadek Sri dan Ibu Komang.
Possibly the toughest job is done by one of the sweetest people you would ever hope to meet. Iluh arrives every morning around 7 o’clock and cleans all the kitty trays. A recent call out for gloves showed us that there are many people who care about our staff who care about the cats and kittens here at Villa Kitty. It wouldn’t work without them.
The Villa Kitty dogs are walked, groomed and trained by Komang. Yes, we have seven rescued Bali street dogs who gallantly watch over the property and the kitties! Komang is our ‘roustabout’ and ensures we don’t run out of anything.
Pak Gading and Pak Alus maintain our beautiful gardens and secure Villa Kitty each night. Pak Mangku sees to all our spiritual offerings every morning.
And finally a man that I call my family. Nyoman Suaspa, is part of the family who own the land that Villa Kitty leases. Nyoman has been a huge support since the first day I met him and in on our board and is an adviser to Villa Kitty.
This is a team of people I am very fond of who take pride in the work we are doing at Villa KItty."
