A Relaxing Environment

At SmallPaws we want each of our cat hotel guests to feel at home and settled as soon as possible after their arrival.

We believe this is easier if the ambience is non-threatening and peaceful. In all of our levels of accommodation, we have relaxing classical music playing in the background at all time.

We offer high-quality pet accommodation for cat lovers who truly care about their pet’s comfort during their stay. At SmallPaws, we ensure that our luxury cat boarding offers your cat a friendly and welcoming environment. Every cat has their own preferences and personality so our cattery attempts to cater to all types.

SmallPaws ensures your cat is provided with fresh air, comfortable bedding, plenty of fresh water and a meal plan to suit their needs. Each of our cat guests have access to a fully covered and secure play area for approximately two hours per day, where they can stretch their legs and pounce across the enclosure. Pampering Plus is available at additional cost.

Keeping your pet active helps to maintain their happiness throughout the duration of their stay in our luxury cattery near the Northern beaches.


We offer six levels of accommodation in our cattery, The Apartments, Double Apartments, Two Storey Apartments, Executive Suite, Penthouse Suite and The Presidential Suite. Whether you are dropping your pet off for a short trip near the Northern beaches or you are heading overseas for a few months, we have the solution for you.

Menu: Cats in all levels of accommodation have a choice of Whiskers, Fancy Feast, Majesty, VIP Cat fresh meat and Advance biscuits.

The Apartment

In The Apartment each cat has their own double enclosure connected with a cat flap. The side walls to the enclosure are solid, and each ‘room’ on the inside has a hiding box with fleecy blanket, a soft bed and soft toggle mat. In the outdoor section they have another comfy bed and scratching post.

One side of the enclosure is on the inside of the cattery, and the other half is on the outside, where each cat can enjoy fresh air and views of the garden (and wildlife!). The inside of the cattery is heated and air-conditioned.

What we offer Your Cat

All of our accommodation is also air-conditioned and heated.

Complimentary Cuddles

Complimentary cuddles, exercise time and attention included for every cat!

Daily Routine

As we all know, cats don’t have owners and carers … they have ‘staff’.

Every morning starts off with ‘the staff’ checking every cat with a cuddle, and a health check. Food and water consumption, along with toileting habits overnight are noted and monitored.

In The Apartments building each of our cattery guests have access to a fully covered and secure exercise area for approximately two hours per day.

In The Suites building we let out one cat at a time to explore the balcony. There are some cats who prefer the comfort of their own room; these cats are monitored closely for issues and encouraged over time to venture into an exercise area.

After all the rooms are cleaned and fresh litter trays replaced, breakfast is served. The trays are cleaned throughout each day, and exercise times rotated as necessary throughout the day.

During the afternoon there are more cuddles, ‘health checks’ and pampering plus activities (optional extras).

Late afternoon it’s back into the rooms for rest and more cuddles. Medications are then dispensed (please note all oral cat medications, including tablets and liquids must be able to be given in their food) and a final good night tuck in.
