Why Use Cat Boarding Services

We often think of cats as independent, and it's true that they don't like change. So why not just leave them at home? Being without their beloved human for an extended period of time is stressful for cats. Cats are independent and adaptable, but they also need social interaction, mental stimulation, and physical activity to stay healthy and happy. Leaving your cat alone at home for too long can cause them to feel lonely, bored, stressed, or anxious. They may also develop behavioral problems such as scratching, spraying, or overeating.

Cat boarding services can provide your cat with a safe and comfortable alternative to staying at home. Your cat will have a cozy and spacious condo where they can relax and play. They will also have daily interaction and attention from our staff, who will feed them, groom them, and cuddle them. They will also have access to toys, scratching posts, and windows to keep them entertained and stimulated. Plus, they will have the benefit of having a veterinarian on site or on call, in case they need any medical care.

If you have an older cat or a cat with special medical needs, leaving your cat at Cats Only in St. Clair County offers assurance that they'll be properly looked after, and get prompt help if any issues arise.

If you want to give your cat the best care possible while you’re away, consider using our cat boarding services. We will treat your cat as our own and make sure they have a purr-fect stay with us.

How to Prepare Your Cat for Boarding

You can ensure your feline family member has the best possible experience with us by:

  • Updating his or her vaccines and health checks before their stay
  • Bringing familiar items such as blankets, toys, and even clothes with your scent on them to ensure they are comfortable in their new surroundings
  • Providing their usual food and any treats you give them
  • Sharing specifics about your cat with our team
  • Introducing them to their carrier a few days before, so they're not stressed out by travel
  • Staying calm and positive, so your furry friend doesn't sense any negative emotions

What to Look for in a St. Clair County Cat Boarding Facility

When choosing a cat boarding facility, you want to make sure it is clean, safe, and comfortable for your cat. You can visit the facility before you book your cat’s stay and check the following aspects:

  • The boarding area should be separate from the dogs and other animals, to reduce stress and noise for your cat.
  • The cages or condos should be spacious, clean, and well-ventilated. They should have cozy bedding, scratching posts, toys, and windows. They should also have a litter box,
  • water, and food bowl that are changed regularly.
  • The staff should be friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. They should be able to handle cats of different temperaments and needs. They should also be able to provide daily playtime, grooming, and cuddles for your cat, as well as regular updates and photos for you.
  • The facility should have a flea treatment policy for all boarders, to prevent any infestation or transmission. If your cat is not on a flea preventative, they should administer one on arrival.
