CAT RETREAT: Climbing towers, toys and hammocks planned

THERE could soon be a new place on the Fraser Coast for cat lovers to book in their feline friends.   

A development application for a cat retreat in Tinana South, which could house about 60 cats, has been submitted for review to the Fraser Coast Regional Council.  

Planning documents reveal the proposed retreat would take up about 135.6sqm and have two separate accommodation areas housing about 22 cages each.   The retreat would be located on the corner of Nerada Rd and Five Mile Rd East at the back of the residential property.

  "It is expected that clientele will range from families, couples and retirees who value a safe and secure place for their cats to stay when needed," the documents read.  

"Research suggests that the facility could be useful for the needs of travelling RV clientele who make Queensland a much-desired winter destination.

"The "accommodation complex" aims to provide a range of accommodation for people's family pets.

Research has shown that there is an opening for an upmarket professional service in the area."  

Both accommodation areas would be air-conditioned and the building would be insulated and lined to make the retreat usable all year round.  

The project outlines three levels of accommodation for the cats, which range from "individually-themed spaces, with climbing towers, toys, comfortable bedding, hammocks, allocated petting times and piped music" in premium choices to "smaller cages... with comfortable bedding" for budget choices.  

A further decision on the project is yet to be made.
