|Can I come for a Tour?
Yes! We welcome and encourage you to come for a tour prior to
boarding. We want you to see first hand what a pleasurable experience
staying at the Cat's Cottage Inn will be for your catand you!
Taking a tour you can see our beautiful facility first hand and
ask questions to put you at ease while your cat is vacationing
Do you allow bedding from home?
Only if it is freshly washed before you bring it. We have plenty
of quilts, blankets and beds here for our quests during their
stay. No large plush toys from home are allowed.
|We have had many people smile and comment that their cat is staying
in a nicer place than they are! We are always grateful for wonderful
comments like this!
Do you provide dry food?
Yes, we have about six different varieties of premium food that
we carry, however, most people choose to bring their own food
Do you provide wet food?
No. Since there is such a large variety of wet food available,
we ask that you bring your cats own variety along with you. Please
bring a plastic cover with their name on it, and label all of
their food with your cat's name, along with instructions on how
to feed and how frequently.
My cat is on medication- can you give it to them?
If your cat is cooperative most of the time we can. You should
call us to discuss their needs prior to bringing them so we can
give you an honest evaluation of if we can meet their needs or
not. Please label all medications with your cat's name, dosage
amounts and frequency.
How much time does it take to check-in when I come to drop off
Please allow about 10-20 minutes. Please have the name and phone
number of your veterinarian along with your cat's current (within
the last 12 months) veterinarian administered vaccinations.
Please also have any other phone numbers of where you are staying
or cell phone numbers with you for our records.
Do you let the cats out of their rooms during the day?
Absolutely! Cats are let out at least twice a day to do as they
pleaseroam around, sit by the sun room windows, climb on cat
towers, play with the many cat toys we have on hand, or rock with
us in the rocking chair. Only cats from the same cat family are
allowed out of their room at the same time.
Why aren't you open all day?
This is a small family-owned and run facility. We work here every day. We are open 6 days a week.
With this arrangement you get consistent one-on-one care for your cat.
We need time off during the day, free of people coming and going all the time to get other tasks done - such as cleaning rooms after a cat leaves and getting it ready for the next cat. There are loads and loads of laundry to be done, litter boxes cleaned, floor swept and mopped daily. Rooms cleaned daily.
We have cats that want and need attention, brushing, playtime and lap time!
We have phones to answer and emails to reply to.
We need time to conduct our own personal errands and appointments and possibly have a little time with our own family - children & grandchildren.
We ask that everyone please make themselves aware of the hours we are open by appointment.
