To All of our Boarding Clients:
We appreciate the trust you place in us by allowing us to care for your cat while you are away.
We feel that we provide your cat with the finest accommodations available. Our cat condos are spacious, and each one has a resting shelf. Whenever we can, we provide your cat with two interconnecting condos to offer even more space.
We try to offer all our boarders a less stressful environment. Our boarding rooms are much quieter than at a traditional boarding facility, and of course, we have no dogs barking here! We feed Science Diet cat foods, but you may bring your cat’s own food, if you like. We will also feed your cat some can food as a treat each day at your request. Our staff interacts with all of the cats daily, although there are always a few kitties that would rather be left alone, and we respect that, too!
We recognize that, even in the best of situations, being away from home is more stressful to some cats than others. During a stressful time, any cat may “break” with an upper respiratory infection. These infections are caused by viruses, and can not be treated effectively with antibiotics. Most cats are infected as young kittens, and remain infected for life. Usually the viruses lay dormant, but at stressful times, the virus may emerge and cause a recurrence of upper respiratory signs such as sneezing, congestion, and sometimes conjunctivitis. If we note any cats starting with these signs, we isolate them immediately. However, since these viruses are carried through the air, no amount of disinfecting can totally prevent their spread. We only mention this to prepare you for the possible risk of your cat being exposed. This risk is very similar to that seen at children’s schools or day care facilities. Thankfully, we only rarely have a problem here, but since it is a possibility, we want to inform you of the risks inherent with any boarding facility.
We have a check out time of 10am. If you pick up your cat prior to 10am, you will not be charged for that day. If you pick up your cat after 10am, the normal daily charge will apply.
We hope you have a wonderful time with whatever takes you away from Destin. Please rest assured that your cat will be well cared for while you are traveling!
