Construction will start in the coming months on a 50-suite "luxury" cattery at Breadalbane after it received final approvals from Northern Midlands Council.
The 200-square-metre cattery at Pets Now Boarding will allow the cat boarding area to be separated from the dog kennels and features four different types of suites, ranging from standard suites with a window and basic accessories, to a luxury garden suite complete with a TV and chaise longue.
The cattery will also include a lounge area where owners can visit their cat and discuss their needs with staff.
Owners Keri and Dean Thurley developed the plans in response to growing demand for cat boarding, and the need to separate the cattery - currently a 14-bedroom boutique area - from the larger kennel.
Ms Thurley said it was designed based on feedback from customers.
"There's four different levels of luxury to choose from, just like a human hotel, available to be booked including specialising in high dependency and elderly care," she said.

"Everything is very personalised to the individual cat and customer.
"Cat people are very unique - the humans like pampering too - so we'll have cat customer lounge areas where they can have a sit down and have a chat about their cat needs while we bring out a tea set.
"We're also taking the cattery away from the kennels. So now you'll drive in and turn right for the cats, and left for the dogs."
Pets Now Boarding has seen a significant increase in demand for longer term boarding while owners are either building or renovating their homes, filling the gap left by the lack of interstate and overseas travel.
The business expects construction to start within six-to-eight weeks, with guests planned to start from Easter.
Final approvals were granted by Northern Midlands Council earlier this month.
The cattery will result in an increase in three full-time-equivalent positions at Pets Now Boarding.
The Thurley's are also in the engineering phase for their Winston Play and Stay concept at St Leonards.
The $2.2 million dog hotel has received approval from the City of Launceston. Set over 2500-square-metres, the facility would cater for 130 dogs.
Ms Thurley said it was "on track" for opening in 2022.
