Cat Boarding Checklist

Cat Boarding Private Rooms | Best Group Cat Boarding Rooms

We understand each cat needs different care options and we have developed multiple care options for your cats well being when you need to go out of town. These include private 7 foot tall, human size, cat only suites …or home like group rooms for friendly cats…and in your home pet sitting visits for cats that can’t be boarded.

To make your pets stay the best possible, we have put the following items, steps, and procedures into a checklist:

  1. Contact us and save a spot for your cat. The sooner the better, though we will always attempt to help even at the last minute, but we are limited on space too.
  2. Check your vaccine records. We need to see proof of vaccines for Rabies and Distemper also called FVRCP. Contact your vet or one of our recommended vets. We also recommend you consult with a vet about the need for other vaccines like bordetella, feline leukemia and/or feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). We also highly recommend you ask your vet about Revolution Plus Topical Solution for Cats. This protects your cat from a wide variety of parasites. If you just need flea treatment Frontline or Capstar are good. Any cat showing signs of parasites on arrival will be referred to at your home pet sitting. Any cat showing signs after arrival will be isolated and treated.
    • Required Vet Records: Rabies, Distemper/FVRCP.
    • Recommended Vet Records: Bordetella, Feline Leukemia, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and/or Revolution Plus Topical Solution for Cats.
  3. Get a plug in feline pheromone diffuser like Feliway and start using it up to a month before your trip. Feliway for cats works by emulating the natural pheromones released by a mother cat to calm her kittens. It is similar to the substance that cats rub onto your leg or furniture. When they mark their territory with this substance, they are marking it as safe. Then when your cat arrives here, it will smell familiar and calming. Non affiliate amazon link here
  4. On the day of check in, bring vet records if they have not been emailed, enough food for your trip, favorite treats, a carrier and something soft that smells like home a bed, blanket, towel, tshirt, ect.

Veterinary Records

On arrival for boarding, cats have a temperature check and are examined for any detectable illnesses or parasite including fleas. All boarding cats must show proof of vaccines including FVRCP and Rabies. FVRCP is for feline viral rhinotracheitis, calici virus and panleukopenia. These are all highly contagious and very serious diseases in cats. Rabies vaccine is state law and is for the protection not only of the pets, but also of the people that will be taking care of your pet. Rabies is 100% fatal to people and animals infected but not receiving early treatment.

The Feline Hotel has custom built private cat suites where 1 to 3 cats can stay in style and safety. These are some of the largest private individual accommodations for cats in the area.

For social cats choose one of our group boarding rooms where your cat spends time with our staff and other cats in a large group room with home like furniture, cat trees, window shelves, and lots of attention. We have one group room for older less active cats and one group room for more active cats.

All staff at the Feline Hotel are trained in Pet First Aid & CPR. Because of our training, we are more likely to recognize any issues early on and we are more likely to understand how to properly respond. This can save time, money, and pain & suffering. Are your Pet’s people trained in pet first aid and CPR?

Behavior training is another reason to choose The Feline Hotel. The owner has roots as a Michigan Humane Society volunteer dog trainer and also a volunteer cat trainer for the Huron Valley Humane Society, plus 20 years of real world practice with over 10,000 pet sitting visits completed.
