Cat Boarding and Reservations

The cat uses a laptop computer

We are a small family-run business, and we must set hours of operation that allow us to perform the tasks needed as well as service our clients. A large part of our work is done before and after hours that we are open. We try to balance our client’s needs, our needs and the health and happiness of our feline guests. We work 7 days a week, so our personal free time is very important.

Boarding and Lodging for Cats

We do the arrivals and departures by a pre-arranged appointment time. We provide boarding only for cats.

We reserve rooms on a first-come, first-serve policy. We recommend that you reserve as soon as you know your travel dates. Many people plan their visit weeks or months in advance.

Reservations

During peak boarding times from May 15 to September 15, Thanksgiving week, and December 15 to January 15, you may be asked to pay a deposit of 50% of the estimated cost at the time of reservation. Our reservation policies allow us to give everyone accurate room availability when they inquire.

During non-peak boarding times, a deposit of 25% may be required at the time the reservation is made. Reservations must be made prior to boarding. Walk-ins will not be accepted. Long term boarding is considered 31+ days in a row. We have reduced rates for long term boarding. A deposit is required when making the reservation.

Early Pick-up and Extending Your Stay

Early Pick-up and Extending Your Stay

We reserve your cat's room for the period you request. If you pick your cat up early, you will be issued a credit on your account for your next visit.

If you need to extend your stay from your original reservation, please be aware that we cannot always do that, especially during summer and holiday times. Sometimes the rooms are fully booked, and we would have nowhere to put your cat for any more days than you told us when you reserved the room.

Air Quality

Air Quality

Our air exchange and ventilation system change out the air in all areas and in individual rooms frequently throughout the day, introducing fresh air from the outside. This is the reason we have no "cat/litter box smell" in our facility.

We heat with radiant floor heat which is great to keep cat paws warm in the winter. We are fully air-conditioned in hot months. Windows are opened to a safe extent during nice days to enjoy the fresh air.

Fleas

Fleas

Fleas are not allowed. Upon arrival, we do a pre-entry check for any sign of fleas. If during check-in or at a later time we see any evidence of fleas or flea dirt on your cat, they will be immediately treated with a topical flea preventative. If fleas are found, you could be denied boarding that day or in the future, and a substantial cost of $50.00+ to treat your cat.

Please be pro-active and make sure your cat is free of fleas. If you want to fully protect your cat, treat them at least 48 hours prior to boarding with us. Use a quality flea preventative such as Advantage, Frontline, or Revolution.

Vaccinations and Medications

We require rabies and FVRCP (Distemper combo) vaccinations. FeLuk test is also required if your cat goes outside (or a negative FeLuk test prior to boarding with us). You must provide a veterinary certificate as proof of vaccination, and it must be current within the last 12 months. You can bring the certificate with you, or have your vet email us a copy. Please give vaccinations at least 48 hours prior to boarding.

Please call us prior to boarding to discuss any medication your cat is on. We are usually willing to administer medication if your cat is cooperative, but please call us first to discuss.

Charges for oral pilling are $1.00 per administration. Adding medication to wet and/or dry food is $1.00 per day. All medications must be in original containers from your veterinarian with dosages. We will follow the dosage as listed on the original bottle.

Cats that have a medical condition will need "a note" from your veterinarian stating that boarding your cat will not compromise his/her health.
