Helpful Tips

  • Please reserve well in advance. It is not unusual to book 4-6 months ahead.
  • Please Provide specific dates. With our limited amount of space we cannot schedule you or other customers based on guesswork.
  • Use a sturdy carrier or a leash for safety while traveling. Please do not release your cat from the carrier upon arrival in the reception area.
  • Confine your cat to the house ahead of time so he doesn’t “disappear” when it’s time to go, and withold food 2-4 hours before leaving.
  • Ask a friend or family member to be a contact person. In case of extreme emergency, they should be able to come and get the cat.
  • We recommend faxing veterinary records ahead to 204-8711 so we can review and make sure they meet the requirements of current rabies & distemper (FVRCP). If you arrive with outdated or insufficient paperwork you will be turned away.
  • At check-in, remain calm, and say a brief goodbye. Your attitude can help reduce stress.
  • Please notify us of scheduling changes to avoid overlapping days with another customer.
  • Minimum age for boarding kittens is 4 months old and fully vaccinated.
  • For new boarders maximum age of 14 and in good health. Refrain from boarding cats of any age who have recently been treated for illness, contagious or not, injured, taking multiple medications, or otherwise compromised. Cats requiring medical care should board with a vet.
  • Even under the best circumstances boarding can create stress. We provide kindness, care and a stable routine which helps cats to adapt better. Cats are all different. They will progress at their own pace. Most do very well here. Occasionally one does not and we will recommend home care instead. If your cat has responded poorly in the past to boarding or really hates new situations or other cats, choose home care.
