The Cats Motel was built on the original Bapton Farm in the Withycombe area of Exmouth and has been an established cattery for over 35 years.
Paul and Hayley Taylor took over at the Cats Motel in November 2013 and we live here with our two grown up children, Ellen and Alex. We are a family of animal lovers and have had a variety of pets over the years and currently have two young rabbits – Scooby and Shaggy, which belong to Ellen. We have continued to build on the excellent reputation, which was already in place, with our own personal and friendly approach to cats and owners alike. Our aim is to provide a relaxing, stress free stay for all our feline boarders. Our caring cattery staff consisting of Julie, Alison and Izzi are an integral part of the Cats Motel ‘family’ and have all been fully trained on the premises.
Paul has lived in Exmouth for most of his life and attended the local schools. Hayley is originally from Buckinghamshire but has lived in Devon for over 30 years. As a family we are members at Withycombe Rugby club where Alex plays regularly for the 1st team. Hayley and Ellen are keen netball players in Exeter and Exmouth.
Paul and Hayley share the day to day running of the cattery along with our efficient team of cattery assistants. Paul is kept busy maintaining and upgrading the premises and Hayley has the additional responsibility of the upkeep of the garden to ensure a pleasant outlook for all and where cats are entertained by the variety of wild life who visit us here. Hayley is very proud to have been awarded first prize in the Business Premises category of Exmouth in Bloom 2016 for the cattery garden.
We welcome visitors to the cattery and are happy to show you round during opening hours, discuss any requirements and answer any questions you may have about boarding your cats with us as we know how important it is for you to have peace of mind and to feel confident that your cat is going to be well looked after during their stay with us.
