CATS MOTEL – Exmouth’s long-established cattery – has new owners who are looking forward to welcoming more moggies.

Paul and Hayley Taylor took over the Bapton Lane business in November.

A family of animal lovers, running a cattery is a new experience for the couple, but they’re “keen to continue the excellent work of our predecessors”.

They also aim “to provide a friendly and relaxing stay for all”.

Paul will look after the day-to-day running of the cattery, alongside existing part-time staff Lynda Aasmaa and Julie Bache.

Meanwhile Hayley will be in charge of the gardens to ensure a “pleasant outlook” for residents.

“We’re family-run, we have friendly and efficient staff, the facilities are spotlessly clean, the cats get one-to-one attention, it’s peaceful and tranquil here, there is nothing to stress the cats out, and it’s very pleasant,” said Hayley.

Sounds a purr-fect place for any cat to stay.
