Microchip

Just because they do not go outside, doesn’t mean they can’t sneak out. A microchip is a great way to help them find their way home!

Preparation for travel with your cat

Boarding information if you cannot take your cat with you

We offer boarding services that are charged by the evening. We provide a litter box, blanket and offer both canned and dry food. If, however, you wish to give your cat all the comforts of home, please feel free to supply your cats own food, special toy and/or blanket. Our boarders are out of their kennel at least twice a day to exercise and stretch their legs. We do not allow the cats out at the same time unless they are from the same family. Medications can be administered for an additional charge.

At home pet sitters are available from outside sources not affiliated with us if you prefer not to board them in a kennel
We recommend a previous technician of ours, Jess that now has her own pet sitting company
