Here we provide the ultimate in pet boarding for those looking for a comfortable, unique alternative to traditional kennels whenever their furry best friends need a place to stay. Our boarding facility is simply the best – a large private room, individual play time and lots of love.

We provide both boarding and sitting services.

Boarding cats stay in their own, private basement apartment with a comfy couch to sleep on and access to a screened door for fresh air and outdoor entertainment. Plenty of climbing opportunities and a variety of scratch posts are provided. Owners provide food and litter and are encouraged to bring along of their cats favorite beds or toys.
