How to Prepare Your Cat for Their First Boarding Stay

caring for your cat

Summer is upon us and that means one thing, vacations! It also means you will likely have to make arrangements for your pets. When it comes to cats, most people think they can be left alone for a few days as long as they have ample food and water. The truth is, they need daily care as well. While a cat doesn’t need to be walked, or taken outside for bathroom breaks, they do need to have fresh food, water and litter box cleanings daily to ensure their health and wellness. Today we are going to discuss the benefits of cat boarding and how you can prepare your feline for their stay with us while you are away.

Why do we recommend cat boarding?

Whether it is for your job or just a family vacation that takes you away, we know how stressful it can be trying to figure out arrangements for your cat. That is why we recommend boarding your cat when you go away. This allows you to have peace of mind while on vacation knowing that your beloved pet is being properly taken care of. When you board your cat with us, we keep a constant line of communication should anything arise.

What are the benefits of boarding my cat?

As previously mentioned, one of the best benefits you will receive when boarding your cat is peace of mind. Nothing is worse than being on vacation and wondering how your cat is doing or if they are getting the care they need. Another benefit of boarding your cat with us is that we have a properly trained staff that are able to provide exceptional care to your kitty. We are able to monitor your cat’s health on a daily basis and monitor their behaviors throughout their stay.
