Cats Arrive As Guests, And Leave As Family.
We know it’s hard to choose the right care for your cat when you go away. At Cat Napping everything we do is based on two things.
Firstly, ensuring our fur-guests are comfortable, happy and well for the duration of their stay. Secondly, giving their humans the confidence to leave their fur children in our care so they can focus on what they are doing – whether it’s enjoying a holiday, taking care of a loved one or doing some home renos!
We have four types of luxury retreats available across our three locations to ensure we have the accommodation to suit you and your cat, or cats! All our cabins are spacious and include a separate enclosed sleeping area for our nap loving cats to hide away in if they prefer.
Why Choose Us?
We’re Not a Franchise, We’re A Family
“Loving to travel but hating to leave my beloved cats with impersonal or small cat boarding facilities, I decided to launch my own cattery to fill the needs of others like me. Since opening our first location in 2011 Cat Napping has grown to three locations but the care you receive at each is still the same. I still own and work at all three locations and, along with my team of certified cat lovers, we can’t wait to get to know and care for each one of our guests – because we know that every cat has their own preferences and behaviours that need to be met with our love and attention.”
– Ebony, Founder
What Our Past Clients Have To Say
The girls come home from cat napping and seamlessly settle back into their routine, they aren’t stressed and are happy which is an awesome compliment to the way they are treated!
Both my bookings have been due to surgery, and it is a great relief for me to know that the girls are safe and happy while I’m in hospital.
Sadly one of my girls has a medical issue with her liver which is still undergoing diagnosis. The Spotswood staff were more than happy to take star to my vet during my hospital stay to carry on with her tests to find the issue with her liver. This was such a relief for me, knowing that Star could continue the essential process of medical tests so that we can figure out what is wrong.
Further to this, I work in rescue and have booked in two of my rescue kitties (fully vet worked) so that I can continue their rehab after I’m home. Then as with everything my plans went pear shaped and I was unable to pick the boys up from the pound. Cat napping Spotswood is also helping me to resolve that issue.
Their generosity and understanding has been so incredible, and I cannot thank them enough for helping me out so well and so much during what is a difficult time. Also their patience at dealing with an anxious fur baby mumma!
I am always a big believer that your fur babies can and will tell you how their stay was based on their behaviour, and going by this their stay was fantastic. Star is an extremely anxious kitty, the first time I dropped her off she ran straight to the teepee to hide. However, when I picked her up she was out and about with Amelia and as I said both girls seamlessly settled back into normal routine and life with no behaviour issues. Also, on arrival on the second visit, incredibly, star who hides at home was out exploring the room and not hiding at all!!!
I can not recommend or thank the girls enough for the assistance provided during this stressful time! They have a customer for life now and I will be telling everyone I know to use cat napping Spotswood!!
We really appreciate the care taken with Poozie and the way they ensure he gets his special foods we provide. The feedback and photos we received were very welcome and put our mind at ease. Also the separate little ‘houses’ were so much better than the banks of cages in some catteries.
When I dropped him off at Hoppers Crossing he was a little shell shocked but I was so happy with the atmosphere and staff I knew he would be ok.
I got my update and photos next day as promised. picked him up after 2 night he came home sniffed around and settled straight back in.
would highly recommend.
Well done on an amazing job and for creating a gorgeous space and environment guys... we’ll be back!!!
Scarlett, Sienna, Wall.E, Ryk and Jacki 😻😻😻😻😍😍
It is very clean, tidy and they have the best accommodation (my choice is the Deluxe Villa fo my two kitties). Super spacious for curious cats like my Pippi (the staff even let her explore outside their accomodation at times!) and love that it has two levels so a good hideaway too for my Gallagher who is a scaredy cat 😸.
The people working there are all so lovely too, you can tell that they are genuinely cat lovers! They take very good care of your kitties and without fail send photo updates so you know they are well taken care of. The cats also come back relaxed and happy when I come back to pick them up from their stay.
Seriously no other better place for your kitties in Melbourne! Pippi and Gallagher will see you back in Christmas! 🥰🥰
She is an indoor cat and quite shy, so we were a little bit nervous about leaving her until we got to Cat Napping and realized that Melissa, Shakira and her team were as cat mad as we were.
We love the facilities and the personalized messages we received during Lana’s stay, always sending pictures and reporting Lana’s behavior. Lana is now back home, happy and healthy when we pick her up, I’m 100% sure she had a great time at Cat Napping, receiving lots of cuddles and care from the team.
We honestly couldn’t be happier with the care that our fur baby received.
Highly recommend and definitely we’ll use Cat Napping again for our Lana.
We left our boy Lucky with Cat Napping Suburban Retreat Tullamarine for 12 nights and we couldn't be happier. The cat enclosures are large, spacious and clean, even with a little cubby house section to have a sleep (as cats love to do)
Thanks to Cat Napping Suburban Retreat Tullamarine Team for looking after our boy, we look forward to booking again in the near future.
I love that while I’m away a get an update and a couple of photos so I know he is safe and happy.
An amazing company.
I couldn’t have been more happier. Each time I emailed the ladies at Tullamarine, j received a reply straight away with a minimum of 5 photos showing that Tigger was eating playing and just having fun with the other cats. To Mel and Shakira, THANK YOU for the work that you do. It is greatly appreciated!!!!! I know that Tigger is so happy to be home but I also know he misses you all and his friends there. See you again soon
Definitely a great place for the fur babies 😻
Jodie was fantastic and it was great while on we were on holidays I could show my kids pictures and updates on how Snowy was going through the week
Would highly recommend and Snowy will be going there when we go on our next holiday
Thank you again
Tammy, Chelsea and William
I am not saying it is their favourite home, however they always return to HQ very well looked after.
Cat Napping is one the best catteries I have ever used over the years and there has been many. My kitties receive great food, care and attention whether staying for the weekend or for several weeks at a time.
We receive updates from Cat Napping crew via email (with photos) keeping us informed on our fur babies.
Cat Napping is clean and well maintained, the staff are friendly, helpful and considerate. On one occasion our flight was delayed and we were going to miss pick up time, I called a head and the girls waited around for us (40 minutes) Now that is great service.
I would highly recommend Cat Napping to all traveling cat owners.
Raymond n Michael.
Highly recommend Cat Napping! We wouldn’t leave our fur baby anywhere else!
A huge & mega ‘THANKS’ for Mel coming in super early when we dropped off and Shakira for staying behind on a very cold, rainy Saturday evening waiting for us to fly in for pick up. Thank you for going the extra mile in making us all HAPPY!!!
We will be seeing you again...But Tommy Meowed not too soon! He is very happy and content to be back home snuggled on mum and dads bed for now.
Jeff, Libby & Tommy😻😻😻
He has been loved, he has had a beautiful clean & hygenic environment to live in staffed with animal lovers!
This is the second time I have used this business & will not go anywhere else.
Thankyou to all the staff at Cat napping hoppers crossing
thank you again jodie 10/10
Not a single bad word for this place. As much for you, the owner, as for your fur baby, this cattery pulls no punches. Beautiful spaces for the cats, wonderful staff who love the animals they care for and the most incredible setup. The cats even get fresh air and sun during the day. We will absolutely use Cat Napping again!
thank u all xx
I have a very timid, nervous cat that likes to keep to herself but the staff are so sweet and welcoming that my cat settled in quickly!
For such a low cost, the centre is well maintained, the staff are lovely and I loved receiving an update with photos while she was checked in!
Thank you ladies ❤️
I picked up 3 happy and relaxed cats..... like they had just finished an 18 day cruise!!!
I would not hesitate in booking my girls into their care again or recommending Cat Napping to fellow Cat mums and Dads!!!!
Thanks for all the cuddles, feeding me and playing with me. You are all SO lovely. My human says I can come back and stay again. She says it’s called #glamping #kingsleymartin 🐱
This is the best place ever to leave your fur babies! At first I was wondering how good they would be. I have never been more pleasantly surprised. The Villa where our 4 babies were staying over night was so clean and comfy our babies were at home within minutes of entering. The ladies I spoke to and met were so welcoming and reassureing that they would be looked after fed, cuddled and they were! I received a text the following morning with a note telling me how happy the babies were and photos to show how they were going! Today a few weeks after their stay they got a note with 4 toys for our babies!
Next time we need the babies looked after I will not hesitate to bring them back to their own holiday Villa. Thank you so much ladies you are amazing and you have been recommended to our family and friends. Also thank you from Cooper, Pookie, Tosh, and Alfred! =^.^= xxxx
Will most definitely be back here!
Thank you Cap Napping.. service was fantastic Mooch would love to stay with you guys again.. THANK YOU THANK YOU
I wouldn't take Tilly anywhere else & highly recommend Cat Napping
They are very happy to be home but I am sure they had lots of fun on their kitty holiday.
Had my 2 fur babies stay for the 1st time at a Cattery and they were absolutely wonderful. My babies were well looked after and they gave extra special attention to Ella who was sick & on medication. Would not hesitate in recommending these guys. Thanks Catnapping xx����
Check-in day went smoothly and we didn’t feel rushed to leave, we were welcome to stay as long as we liked settling them in!!
The updates they send you absolutely make your day, you can see they are ok and then you are able to enjoy your holiday even more. We did worry sometimes that they wouldn’t want to come home, they looked like there were having so much fun and getting soooooo much attention!!!!
All staff are warm, welcoming and love cats and we will without a doubt be booking again!
Thank you Ebony and team for everything, please keep up the amazing work.
The staff are so caring, it's very clean and all the cats are well looked after and happy. I highly recommend it. Dr. Lauren
Rae & Mel
