Our Story

The Cattery

Established in 2002, Torquay and Surf Coast Cattery was the first registered Cattery in the Surf Coast Shire. The cattery is built on our acreage on Grossman’s Road in Torquay and is managed by our family who lives on-site. We pride ourselves on our high level of care and passion for the health, safety, and wellbeing of cats. It is what truly makes us the best choice when it comes to choosing reliable accommodation for your furry friend when you go out of town. Keeping your cat safe is our number one priority, which is why we have high-quality surveillance systems installed throughout the cattery, that are monitored 24/7.

About us

Torquay and Surf Coast Cattery is owned and operated by a local family that holds extensive experience in the animal health industry, with Darina being a veterinary nurse. Our experience means that in the case of a medical emergency, your cat will be in cared for by trained professionals. Seamus has been working at the cattery for many years behind the scenes being Darina's son.  He has a background in customer service and is now working with us full-time.  It is not unusual to find Seamus locked in a cat suite playing and chatting to our guests.  When our family goes away, the cattery is very lucky to have the nurses from the Torquay Animal House Veterinary Clinic come and look after them. The beauty of this is that there is consistency with care and even the scared cats settle in very well. There is someone at the cattery property overnight 365 days per year, so should there be an emergency it will be handled immediately.
