We like to think of our cattery as a home away from home for your cats, where they will be treated with the same love, care, and attention that you lavish upon them yourselves on a day-to-day basis! We love having your cats stay with us and treat them as though they were our very own.

Whilst you are enjoying yourself on holidays, rest assured that your cat is also enjoying a holiday with us! Our facilities are exceptional, with spacious private rooms available. With years of experience and many, many satisfied return customers, we know your cats will love it here!



All suites are walk-in and multi-level, with plenty of room for our guests to relax or play. Most have individual outside yards with sundecks. All suites have access to our large indoor and outdoor playgrounds with an abundance of toys. There are also bridges, posts, tunnels, and other hiding spots to keep your cat amused. There are even fish in a pond for your cat to gaze at! All this is set in beautiful gardens for your cat’s enjoyment. None of our playgrounds are concreted so it is just like being home; they can climb, dig, run, and hide in fully secure areas. The cats love it and so do we!

All cats are monitored every day to make sure that they are happy. We do all we can, to provide a stress-free holiday including having the television or music on 24 hours a day. We aim to maintain a comfortable temperature although the cattery is naturally sunny and warm. We have heating for added warmth and evaporative cooling and of course, we provide 24 hour care with lots of cuddles!

Your cat can choose to have a restful holiday, lay back in a comfy bed, sleep, watch television or lay in the sun. However, for the more active, there are playgrounds. We try to keep the environment as homely as possible.

Avalon/McIntyre Park Cattery is a fun place to be and does not resemble a prison or a hospital as others do. Anyone can tell by looking at the cats that stay here, that they are happy and content.

We are proud of our cattery and love our cats. You are welcome to come and see for yourself! Simply call in to view our unique cattery at any time during opening hours.



Only vaccinated cats are accepted. Proof of your cat’s last vaccination date is required. We also require all cats to be desexed, though kittens are exempted from this. Our vet is available 24 hours a day and we are qualified to administer any medication where needed, even insulin injections. There is no additional charge for doing this. Additionally, we have an isolation area, if required.



Our rates are very competitive, in fact, we believe them to be the lowest of all the catteries in Geelong, Lara, Werribee, and the Melbourne suburbs. We offer discounts for long term stays and accept EFTPOS as well as cash, cheques and money orders. View our low rates here.



Avalon & McIntyre Park Cattery is open from 8am-5pm every day except Christmas. That’s sixty-three hours per week that we are available to the public!
