Townsville’s premier cat boarding facility

Simply Catz has been providing luxury accommodation for felines of all sizes and personalities since 2006. Proprietors, Chris and Terry Reed (also known as cat whisperers) established the boarding facility in Jensen, Townsville, after spending many years running a boarding kennel in Victoria. Their intention had been to retire in sunny North Queensland, but after missing their daily interactions with the pets and their owners, they built their own cat resort on a 20- acre property.

When you’re off on the holiday of a lifetime, there’s no reason your cat shouldn’t be treated to star-rated accommodation while you’re away. Short or long-stay tenants are welcome and our rates are extremely affordable from $20 a day (or part thereof) per cat. We offer discounts for long-term fur guests.

Accommodation & meals

Our cat boarding accommodation features large condos with garden-views, sunny window spots, deluxe cushions, toys and access to litter boxes. Alternatively, we also offer large 3-tier cages, with plenty of room for the active cat. We also offer individual theme rooms and a large playground.

At Simply Catz, we believe in the importance of nutrition. We serve Royal Canin biscuits as a morning meal, so the cats can graze at their leisure. This cat food is available in a variety of formulas to suit all dietary requirements. However, if your kitty would prefer something different you are welcome to provide their favourite food and treats.

At dinnertime, our guests are given what they’re used to getting at home. They may be treated to raw fish, formulated cat mince, or their favourite brand of cat food. Kittens are also given lactose-free cat milk.

If you have further questions about the meal or accommodation standards, feel free to contact us.

Important information

Vaccinations & flea treatments

To ensure the health and safety of all cats at our cattery, it’s important to make sure vaccinations and flea treatments are up-to-date at least 2 weeks prior to arrival.

We recommend Revolution or Advocate for flea treatments as they also kill ear mites, which are often hard to detect.

Medical emergencies & medication

Please let us know if your cat requires regular medication and we will ensure it is administered accordingly.

In case there is an emergency and your cat requires medical attention, we will contact you as a courtesy and ensure your cat gets the necessary treatment from our trusted vet who is available 24 hours a day.

Chauffeur Service

As an added convenience, we offer a pet chauffeur service. This optional extra means your pet can be delivered door-to-door.
