How We Started The Happy Cat Hotel

When we wanted somewhere for our cats to holiday in a safe, stress free and fun environment with caring, empathetic people who have an innate understanding and love for cats, we were encouraged to set up a cattery and boarding facility in Kensington, Johannesburg. A seed was sown, and the idea of offering a safe, secure, modern, luxury Hotel for cats to stay while their Mum and Dad are away from home, was born.

We have a clear vision of the high standards and caring ambience that we wished to create. Everyone who knows us recognises the passion and commitment that has gone into developing this business and that the health, welfare and comfort of all of the cats in our care will be first class! We found a need for a cat hotel and we established our family run feline-exclusive boutique hotel and boarding cattery in Kensington, Johannesburg, based on our love of cats.
