Typical Boarding Day

Each cat is checked on throughout the day as they relax in our cat room! They will enjoy plenty of natural light from our double window and enjoy their own condo. During these visits, we make sure their condo and litter box are clean and that they have fresh water. Making sure our guests are happy and healthy is a top priority! Cats will also be let out daily for play time, and have lots of love from staff!

Our experienced staff will ensure your pet is cared for like their own. With firm Vaccine protocols and strict cleaning and health standards, you can enjoy your vacation and not have any worries about your four legged family members!
