Q) Do you give a discount to someone who brings their cat’s food?

A) No. We don’t charge extra to serve special diets to our feline guests, nor do we offer a discount to those who bring their own food.

Q) Do I need to bring any documentation for my cat?

A) Owners must provide a Health Certificate from their pet’s veterinarian. This acts as the proof of vaccination, complete with dates of vaccinations for Rabies, RVRCP, and FeLV. 528372_340946126012922_903781726_n

Q) What do we need to bring?

A) The only things you need to bring is your cat in a carrier or on a leash and a copy of the Boarding Agreement.  If your cat requires medications, please bring those as well. You are welcome to bring anything that you feel might make your cat feel more comfortable. We are not responsible for anything you forget to take home. Please label items with your contact info.

Q) What if I need to cancel or change my stay?

A) We will provide a refund of your deposit if you cancel ten or more days before your check-in date. Please call or email us and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Q) My cat requires medication. Will there be an extra charge for administering this?

A) If your cat requires injections or hand-fed pills, there is a $5 fee for each time medication is administered. All medications are charted by staff.

Q) I don’t want to change my cat’s diet. Will you feed them as I do?

A) Yes, we follow a care plan provided by you in the Boarding Agreement. While we can provide a variety of healthy foods free of charge, you are welcome to bring your own if you would prefer not to change your cat’s diet. (It is generally recommended to not rapidly change your pet’s food as it may upset their stomach.)
