Who We Are
The Nekoya Cat Hotel is Singapore’s leading provider of private cat daycare and private, professional boarding services. Every cat that comes and goes through our door is a treasured furry friend – And we want to help cat owners take much needed vacations by being able to trust us with their cats when caring for them personally sometimes isn’t possible.
Working at the Nekoya Cat Hotel means you have to be a dedicated cat lover, and understand our clients with a whole heart – Not just our human clients, but the feline ones, too. Do you have what it takes to be part of our team?
Is to provide a happy, holistic and restful environment for our feline guests, and to raise awareness of the importance of proper care for cats through active education.
We want to be a trusted, leading provider of holistic cat care services.
Honesty, warmth and sincerity are traits we hold close to our heart.

Being part of the Cat Care team means you assume the responsibility of caring for our guests while their families are away. It’s a challenging role that demands high attention to detail, but is oddly satisfying when the cats begin snuggling up to you to show their appreciation for the work you do for them!
