The Bluebirds fought off competition from Falkirk and Stoke to land the Dutch stopper on a season-long loan deal
Loovens is eager to kick-start his career and sees the move to the Welsh capital as a springboard to success.
"I'm glad about this," Loovens told Feyenoord's official website. "I'd rather have stayed at Feyenoord, but I want to play and with Saidi, Gibbs, Bahia and Greene as competition that would be tough."
Commenting on his new club, Loovens added: "They are busy building a new stadium and I've seen that the potential is there to take a step forward.
"They now play in The Championship, which is a division below The Premiership. I hope to have a share in the sporting evolution.
"And the city appealed to me too, especially the harbour was brilliant.
"The perception of football in the UK appeals enormously to me and I'm happy with the move."
Loovens has a further two seasons to run on his contract at Feyenoord and he will hope to catch the eye of coach Erwin Koeman during his stint at Cardiff.
