Questions & Answers

Q: My cat is scared of dogs. Are they kept in the same building?

A: No, the cattery is located in a separate building so no dogs will be nearby!

Q: Most cat kennels are super small. How big are yours?

A: We want the cats in our care to have lots of room to roam around! Our luxury suites measure 4’W x 8’L x 8’H. They also have their own cat tree!

Q: Does my cat stay in their kennel the whole day?

A: No, the cats come out kennel by kennel (family or individual) while we clean. They can roam around, sit on the window sills or lounge on the leather chairs. If they prefer to play, we have lots of toys or if they prefer cuddles, then we spend time with them. Each cat gets individual attention.

Q: Will my cat get to play with other cats?

A: No, we do not socialize cats with each other unless they are family members.

Q: What extra charges are there for medications/insulin injections?

A: This depends on how cooperative your cat is! Generally, there are no extra charges for insulin injections or if your cat takes a pill in their food. If we have to open your cats mouth up to pop in a pill or give it some liquid medication, then there is a $3.50/day charge.

Q: What time do you feed?

A: Typically we feed around 7:00 am and 5:30 pm, although these times are not set in stone.
