Jovelles Cat Motel was established in 2005 and is managed by Terry and Chris Merritt. Terry and I have been breeding cats for more than 35 years so with this knowledge and experience, we designed and built our small, specialized CAT ONLY boarding facility.
When we first began breeding cats in Townsville, we had lovely Perisans. Eventually British Shorthairs came along to join the crew and by combining these two breeds, we ultimately began breeding Exotic Shorthairs (or shorthaired Persians).
In late 1994, we moved from Townsville to Toowoomba, bringing with us just a few cats as we had no plans at that time to continue breeding. We didn't figure on our daughter gifting us a lovely chocolate Burmese "Spud" who was instrumental in enticing us to breed these wonderful cats.
Since living in Toowoomba, we purchased 6 acres of semi-rural land on the outskirts of Toowoomba and it is here that we decided to branch into the boarding of cats.
We are a small boarding facility that caters to CATS ONLY. Our visiting furr-persons stay in self-contained private units, large enough to bring items from home such as favourite beds, scratching poles and more.
Each unit has two different height shelves to allow our visitors to get exercise as well as relax up high, which is usually their favourite place. We also offer the use of an outdoor exercise yard for those wishing to exercise more in the outdoors.
There are solid walls between the units so that there is NO CONTACT between visiting felines. This is important both from a safety perspective as well as for health and well-being.
Please check the FAQ to see if we have answered your questions. If not, please feel free to phone or email and we will do our best to assist.
How can I make bookings?
Bookings can be made by phone, fax or via email. If you fax or email though, please ensure you receive confirmation of booking.
How long in advance do I need to book?
For much of the year, bookings can be made fairly close to the required event however, for school holiday bookings and in particular Christmas, we take bookings 12 months in advance so as soon as you know you are having holidays in those special times, ring / email etc and secure your booking.
There are several factors that influence the cost of boarding with us. At Jovelles Cat Motel, we charge by the day. Therefore whether your cat/s come in between 6-8am or 4-6pm affects how you will be charged. Read More
