Cat Boarding

Looking for a place where your cat will receive daily care while you’re away? That’s exactly what we do in our Feline Pet Resort! Tucked strategically to the far left of our boarding facility upstairs—just a short elevator ride to the second floor from the veterinary clinic. The placement of our cat area ensures that our feline companions are not bombarded with the sights and sounds of our noisier canine guests.

Each of our nine cat suites comes equipped with food bowls, water bowls (filled with filtered water daily), a litter box, two “kitty cities” or cat towers, kitty toys, bedding and seven of these suites even have their own window perch that overlooks 5th street.

At 9am daily, we clean each suite, empty and fill water bowls with fresh filtered water, provide fresh food, empty each litter box and provide a fresh box with new litter, and provide cuddles for each feline guest (or space, if that’s what they prefer). Each guest will receive play time in our “Cat Commons Area” for at least one hour per day where they will be free to roam individually and play in our large cat towers or perch on our windows overlooking downtown. We feed dinner around 5pm, re-tidy each suite, top off their water and tuck them in for the night.

We provide all of the essentials for a comfortable stay: bedding, food & water bowls, fresh filtered water, kitty cities, cat towers, cat toys and our house food (Royal Canin Adult Feline). However, you can bring any food they are used to eating, toys, treats or bedding that you would like to add to their room. In addition, Upper Paw staff members are highly trained in administering medications if necessary.

We are quite familiar with the stages cats go through with boarding, and we know moving them out of their home environment can be a challenge for them. During their entire stay we will do everything we can to ensure they are comfortable and happy whether it be spraying Feli-way in their room each day (a calming pheromone) or giving them special canned food to win them over.

Please let us know if they prefer any special treats or food that you’d like to bring along. We want each feline guest to leave happy!
