Cat Overnight Boarding

Cat overnight boarding is a great place for your feline friends to stay safe while you're away. We have a space away from the dogs where cats can feel safe. Cats have a large sleeping kennel with cozy bed, litter box, food, and water. During the day they get let out of the kennel in a small room with cat post, climbing tree post, and beds. Same cat family members can stay together if you would like. If you have a dog family member staying with us and your cat and dog are best friends they can visit each other for a supervised time with one of our staff members in a private area just for your pup and the cat. Our staff regularly pets, snuggles, and cleans up after the cats throughout the day. We have a radio going for familiar sounds to help comfort the cats. We need owners to bring their cat's own food and litter to make sure pets don't have reactions or get upset tummies.

Cat Boarding Requirements

Friendly with People
Spayed and Neutered
Current on Vaccines

 We want to have a positive and safe playing environment for all cats. Cats must be non-aggressive towards people to properly handle and care for the cat. We don't have extra space to keep aggressive animals at our facilities.

After 7 months of age, all pets must be spayed or neutered. Cats that are not spayed or neutered have the risk of being more territorial. Cats in heat are often very loud and distracting. Cats that are unneutered or unspayed often also have more inclination to escape or roam. For their safety and comfort during their stay, it is best they are altered after 7 months.

All cats must have current proof vaccinations from a certified veterinarian.  Required vaccines include Rabies, 3-way which includes feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and  panleukopenia  (FVRCP), and feline leukemia (FeLV). We do not have a fax, so you can bring in a paper copy, have your vet call us, or have it emailed to us. Vaccines may be waived due to old age, health reasons, or allergies with a written release from licensed veterinarian. Although we don't require Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) or a fecal test, it is highly recommenced that you get them for your pet.

No Parasites

All pets must enter the facility with no fleas or parasites.  If fleas are found after your pet is left in our care, then the pet will be bathed and/or treated with topical flea treatment and you will responsible for any charges. Although we have a no flea policy, there is a higher risk of your pet getting fleas when be around others animals, so it is highly recommend that you treat your pet monthly with a topical treatment.

What to Bring for your cat when it Boards

Vaccine Records

All cats must have current proof vaccinations from a certified veterinarian.  Required vaccines include Rabies, 3-way which includes feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia (FVRCP), and feline leukemia (FeLV). We do not have a fax, so you can bring in a paper copy, have your vet call us, or have it emailed to us. Vaccines may be waived due to old age, health reasons, or allergies with a written release from licensed veterinarian. Although we don't require Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) or a fecal test, it is highly recommenced that you get them for your pet.

Cat Carrier

We ask that all cats come in a cat carrier for their safety and if there was an emergency we would need a way to transport your cat safety. Please put your cat's first and last name on it. It is recommended you put a towel or blanket in a carrier while traveling, as some cats get nervous and will defecate. 

Own Food

We highly recommend bring your pet's own food from home. Switching your cat's diet can give them an up set tummy or diarrhea. Bring food in its original cat food bag, zip lock baggies, or a container with your pet's first and last name. It's not a bad idea to bring a day or two extra just in case your trip is longer then planned. Any extra food left over will be given back. We feed twice a day although we can feed lunch if your cat is used to that. We also have premium can and dry cat food for emergencies or if you run out.

Medications

We will administer any medications as provided and directed by you.  Please make sure medications are marked with detailed instructions so we can administer it to your pet properly.  We can give tablet and capsules, topical ointments and spray, eye and ear drops, and insulin injects. To insure they eat oral medication you can bring your choice of treat to add to food like peanut butter, cheese, meat, pill pocket. We have refrigerator to store treats and medications if needed.

No Personal Items
Cat Litter

We highly recommend bring your pet's cat litter from home. There are many different kinds and to keep your cat comfortable and safe we'd prefer to use one your cat is familiar with. Some cats can have allergies or a health reason they need a certain type of litter. Bring the litter in its original bag, box, or container and put your pet's first and last name. Any extra litter left over will be given back. We also have cat litter on hand for emergencies or if you run out.

We ask that you leave all beds, blankets, and toys at home. Not having these items makes less of a hassle for you and us. It’s one less thing for you to remember to bring before your big trip and we don’t have to worry about your items getting misplaced or destroyed. We supply all bedding for each pet that is washed daily.  We also do not need your pet’s food or water bowls. We have size appropriate feeding bowls that are sanitized after each feeding. Fresh, clean water is always available and bowls are washed daily.
