We are not responsible for anything you forget to take home. Please label items with your contact info.

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

A) Yes, there is a $5 fee each time we need to administer medication. This is because we spend extra time supervising your kitty making sure all its special needs are being met. 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. It is generally recommended by the vets to not rapidly change your pet’s food as it may upset their stomach.
