It's a tail as old as time - families go away, and pets can't always come with you, so what do you do with your pets?
Dogs can often go to the houses of family members or friends, or they go into boarding.
Pets Now Boarding discovered that cat owners can be a little more particular about where they want their pets to go - and aimed to fill a gap they saw in the market.
Recently, they opened what they refer to as a "five-star luxury cat hotel' on the premises - a custom designed facility offering different levels of accommodation suitable for fussy felines.
James Parker said the project had taken more than a year from the time that they realised the need for a purpose-designed cattery.
"We've had quite a small boutique cattery until this point, whereas this one more than triples our capacity which is something that is really needed because unfortunately at peak times, we're completely booked up and turning people away," he said.
"We recognised that Launceston had a need for more high-level cat accommodation such as this, so it was a case of getting the plans done, the builders and finally building it here."
The cattery was designed by owner Keri, leaving no detail spared.
Different "suites" have different needs catered for - including cat toys, windows, beds and chairs - with more premium suites offering additions including televisions for stimulation.

An area of the cattery still under construction will offer indoor and enclosed outdoor spaces for the cats in care - with a balcony garden being installed, due to open by the end of June.
"There's a lot of different elements that go into what makes a boarding experience for a cat a good one," Mr Parker said.
" A big part of it is creating an atmosphere where the cat can settle, that's an incredibly important part - trying to remove all of the stress factors that might make a cat feel a certain way.
"By having a cage-free environment like we have, with floor to ceiling height rooms like this with an ample amount of floor space and so many different furnishings that you'd find in a normal home, a lot of cats come here and you can see it how quickly they relax and settle into the environment."
Special diets and medical requirements also taken care of by attendants - with nothing too difficult according to Mr Parker.
"It's a home away from home, but for your pets," he said.
"We even have rooms designed for elderly care."
The facility is happy for tours at any time during business hours by contacting them on 6344 7783 or dropping in at 805 Hobart Road Breadalbane.
