Boarding Room


Boarding RoomWhen your cat boards with us, he will be able to get plenty of exercise in our cat play room. This large room features climbing poles and perches, ramps to explore, hiding cubbies, toys, treats, and lots of room for running and playing! 

Cats can also relax on window perches, and enjoy the view of the wildlife outside, or just bask in the sun!  Boarding cats have access to this room each day, as space allows.  Cats from different households are rotated through the playroom at separate times.

Overnight Kitty Suites

This is where cats boarding with us spend their nights.  Each individual kennel has a separate perching ledge, as well as portholes and removable floor sections that interconnect each kennel. As space allows, your boarding cat will be allowed to access multiple interconnected "rooms", providing separate areas for eating, sleeping, and playing.  In this way, multiple cats from one household may stay together without having to squeeze into a single kennel. We pride ourselves on keeping our boarding area clean and quiet - no barking here - and windows let in the bright sunshine each day!

Cats staying with us are provided with Science Diet Adult Feline dry cat food, as well as fresh water, dishes, blankets, litter, toys, and treats at no additional charge.  Those wishing to bring their own food, bedding, or toys are of course welcome to do so!  


Boarding Policies:

Due to space limitations, boarding is limited to those cats who are current patients at our veterinary clinic. We are unfortunately no longer able to offer boarding to cats who are not current patients. Please call our office for current boarding rates.  Boarders must be up-to-date on their rabies and distemper vaccinations, and must have had a negative fecal check for intestinal parasites within the past 12 months.  If your cat is not current on required vaccinations, a checkup exam must be scheduled prior to your planned boarding dates.

We are happy to administer to your cat any necessary medications while he or she is boarding with us.  Medication administration is charged at $4.00 per administration, for owner provided medication.  We can administer oral medications, topical medications (such as eye or ear drops), or injectable medications (such as insulin).  Due to scheduling arrangements, medications can not be administered more frequently than twice per day. Please understand that some cats can become stressed or fearful when not in their home environment, making administration of medication difficult or impossible. For these patients, it is often better for the cat to find a petsitter who can come to the home to administer the necessary medications.

Boarding cats may be dropped off and picked up during the following hours:  8 am-6:30 pm Mondays, and 7:30 am-5:00 pm Tuesdays-Fridays.  Special Sunday pickups are available but must be arranged with our staff in advance, and all fees must be paid in full at the time of drop-off.
