What to Look for in a Boarding Facility
There are good ones, great ones and terrible ones. If you choose to place your cat in a boarding facility, go there yourself and take a tour. For a cat, being placed in a cage, surrounded by unfamiliar animals, sounds, smells and sights, can cause major stress and anxiety. Keep in mind how sensitive your cat’s senses are and inspect the kennel from your cat’s point of view.
Some things to keep in mind when visiting a cat boarding facility:
- How does it smell?
- How loud is the environment?
- Are cages facing each other? This can be very stressful.
- Is the cage big enough so the food bowl isn’t right next to the litter box?
- What type of staff interaction is there?
- Do the cats get played with, petted and held?
- What is done to help reduce anxiety and fear?
- Is there a veterinarian on-call for emergencies?
- How is the facility monitored at night?
